Contacts of the hostel:
Friends on Bankovsky was the Friends group’s first Petersburg hostel. From the start Friends was intended to be progressive take on a budget hotel; we wanted to create an environment that gave travellers a combination of comfort, friendly service, and fun, as well as a place where it was possible to meet and make new friends. We wanted to make the hostel bright and welcoming with plenty of character and an arty and alternative edge to it.
We’ve prepared lots of nice surprises for our guests: admire yourself in an antique mirror, trace your recent world travels on our unique collage of world city maps, play table football, take your picture in a whole new setting with our fun photo wall or simply enjoy the cheerful music that permeates the corridors and hallways as you get ready to go out and enjoy the city.
On each floor there are shower cabins with a constant supply of hot water as well as shared toilets and sinks, all of which are kept clean by our attentive staff of cleaners. For the safety of our guests the building enjoys 24-hour video surveillance.
Nearby you’ll find a lot of St Petersburg’s most famous sights, including its world-class museums, cosy cafes, fashionable restaurants and interesting temporary exhibits.
