  Our children were bitten by fleas or bugs in their beds. The toilets were in such a state that we decided to buy a night pot for our two kids (aged four and two). The hostel announces a possibility to use internet services. It was out of order for ten days, and when we asked, the hostess told it was for a long time! They calculate the change roubles/euros on the bas of 37 roubles for 1 euro, when the normal rate is 33.5! Multiply the difference by the numbers of travellers ans the numbers of nights, and you will have an idea of the racket this consists of! The kitchen has never been cleaned, as long as we stayed. The rooms neither. No help from the staff, even when they saw us with two kids, two rucksacks, a suitcase, and a push chair. We went last summer in this bloody hotel, we won't do it again!

  This is the cheapest hostel I could find in St. Petersburg. It was fairly average as hostels go, with a relatively helpful staff and decent facilities. It tended to be a bit noisy, especially on the weekends, and it is far from the city center. We didn't mind because we would get back to the hostel before it was dark (10 p.m.). But if you like to stay out late it may not be the best option, since the Metro will shut down eventually.
The All Seasons hostel is near the Park Pobyedy metro station, which is on a direct line about 5 stops from the central Nevsky Prospekt station. Trains run until about 11pm daily, maybe later on weekends. Exit metro at the corner of the park (Pobyedy)and walk past the side of it along the boulevard Moscovskaya. Turn right at the end of the park and then turn left through the second space between buildings. This is Yakovlevskiy Lane. The big, intimidating dark-grey stone building, #11, is where the hostel is. The fecilities are basic, rooms are very drab but acceptable and beds functional though not particularly comfortable. The toilets and showers are average, though the shower drains don't drain well. There is a small, not very sociable common TV room with fridge and a cheap coffee machine near reception. The reception is helpful as there are very few other English speakers (or any other language than Russian) in the city. It is not really a party hostel as there is hardly any social environment. It is a little bit out of the town center, but the price is incredibly cheap and therefore worthwhile for budget traveler. Taxis from central town cost about $13 US for those who stay out late.
St. Petersburg has few alternatives in the budget travel area, so even though this hostel isn't very nice, it is ok especially in a city where you won't be spending (hopefully) much time in the hostel. Located about a 15-20 minute walk from the nearest metro station, All Seasons Hostel is in the middle of an old soviet apartment building. Although there has obviously been some work done, there is still a lot of room for improvement. For instance, the beds are hard as wood planks even with three of the small, old, smelly mattresses under you. There's also no air/conditioning or screens on the windows which can lead to sleepless nights in the summer where you are forced to choose between the heat and the mosquitos. The "common room" is actually a very small place with a little stove and a TV which honestly isn't very inviting. The bathrooms are clean enough and there's hot water. The staff are fairly friendly and speak English well. Also no internet although is as advertised, there were some computers in various states of direpair laying around so maybe someday there will be.

  The hostel facilities were okay. Only the matresses are a little bit thin. Don't forget, ALL the bridges are closed at night - check out the signs (if you're too late, you may have to wait till 5 am!)
  The hostel was clean and fairly comfortable. It had a balcony with an excellent view of the Neva and St. Petersburg in general. The view is especially good during the White Nights of June. I recommend this hostel.
