Budget Hotel recommendations in St. Petersburg

Cuba Hostel
Funky, youthful and loud, Cuba Hostel is a centrally-located budget hostel, great for backpackers. Mostly appealling to a social crowd, the Cuba Hostel sits just down the street from Kazan Cathedral, and is a 5-minute walk off Nevsky Prospekt. There’s a small communal kitchen area; dorm rooms are spare but clean, with shared bathrooms. Free wifi and coffee are available in the couch-filled common room. The whole building gives off an appealingly anarchic feeling of cultivated disrepair.

St. Petersburg International Hostel
An old and established budget option, the St. Petersburg International Hostel is part of the Hostelling International network. Cheap and basic, it offers visa registration services, laundry, and safety deposit boxes. Don’t expect anything fancy, but it does the job. The hostel is located at the far end of Nevsky Prospekt, off busy transport hub Ploschad Vosstaniya.
