As Nevsky Prospekt becomes more crowded with 5-star hotels it is nice to know there are still some more affordable accommodations in St. Petersburg. The Apricot Hostel has 13 rooms with a common kitchen and 4 shared toilets and showers. Single rooms do not have their own toilet.
Between the 13 rooms a student group of up to 30 can be accommodated.
It is a new clean renovation, one of the better hostels for looks. A good option if you don't mind neighbors and need a budget accommodation.

Unique Qualities: The location is convenient near Moskovsky Railroad station and Metro and Mayakovsky Metro station, It is about 25 minutes walk down to Palace Square and the Hermitage.

The hostel has 13 rooms, from single rooms for $50 ( 1200 rubles) to a dorm with up to 6 others for $24 (600 rubles) a night. (6-bed male and 6-bed female dorms, 3-bed mixed rooms, singles and doubles)

The staff stay on the premises 24 hours and are helpful.
Free luggage room and high speed internet!
Nice view of Nevsky Prospect without a long climb of stairs to get there, they have an elevator!

It is a bit tight on floorplan, walls not soundproof and mixed Russian and foreigner guests. Some of staff speak english enough to be helpful.

Address: 106 Nevsky Propect, apartment 7
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Nevsky Prospect near Moskovsky and Mayakovsky metro stations. watch for the pink car!
