You will feel at home if you decide to be social. They are very pleasant and helpful with answering questions and helping you find what you need. It's a quiet place with families and young people as well. I made several friends here. The washing machine is very helpful. They have filtered water for drinking here as well. The location... More

I've visited St.Petersburg in October this year. I found this hostel just by walking by. I've stayed there for three nights. It is nice place to stay in heart of the city, in walking distance to all the historic landmarks and subway station is just across the street. It is a basic, but clean, and friendly place to stay, for... More

This hostel has a great location and is an excellent value. I was there in the winter and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and very attentive. The hostel is a little lacking in travelers vibe and tourist assistance. For example they were out of the free tourist city center maps. I had to stop... More

This hostel is fine. We were not too bothered about staying in a lot and chilling out so it suited us perfectly. The common area is very comfy and the kitchen is lovely but the room was not nice. uncomfortable, hot, no windows. We had booked a double and while the girl at the counter said she would change us...

Good location for visiting St.Petersburg. Takes approx. 25 mins to walk to the church on the spilled blood. We had a private room. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly. One negative is that the toilets/showers could have been cleaner and the shower curtains really need replacing.

I spent one week at Babushka House and it was not a good experience. St Petersburg is an expensive city and the prices were very enough for student and backpackers, but the service was terrible, specially the breakfast (milk and bread if you are luck). The toilet paper has finished at least three times and the staff didn´t really care... More

I live in Moscow and this hostel was recommended by a Russian friend. I booked it for my parents and they were extremely happy with it. They speak no Russian but the staff all had great English and could not have been any more helpful. My parents were impressed with the hostel. I had worried because there were no ensuite... More

I loved this place, the people are so nice, the location is perfect, the price was great (of course it's a hostel). The bed is so comfy for a hostel, I couldn't believe. I recomended to many friends already and will keep doing that, if I come back to St. Petersburg I'd stay there again, great fun!

I pay your attention on the fact that in BABUSHKA House Hostel you can't pay with an international credit card as VISA or MASTERCARD and others. I guess that it is just because the owners forgot to join the international circuits of payment by credit cards and that they will soon solution the situation for their customers. I don't really...
