However, as everywhere else hostels in St Petersburg also have their pros and cons.

On the one hand Hostels can be a great way to save on accommodation and get to know other travellers from all over the globe. They cost much less than hotels and tend to lend to more interaction. But on the other hand there is no or little privacy or personal service offered as you have to share your bathroom and room with other people, and sometimes you may even find it hard to get a good sleep due to a noisy environment.

That said, regardless of all the pros and cons hostels can make travelling a whole lot more fun, if you choose the right one of course. So, if you are looking for low budget accommodation and/or you would like to find people to eat meals with, go on tours with, and party with, then pick one of the Russian hostels presented here and enjoy your stay.
