Friends on Vosstaniya
St Petersburg, Vosstaniya street, 11
Contacts of the hostel:
Our biggest property, Friends on Vosstaniya opened in late 2012, and like all our hotels, it’s located right in the middle of St Petersburg and just moments from Nevsky Prospekt, the city’s main artery. Nearly all of Petersburg’s sights are within easy walking distance, and even those that aren’t can be reached in no more than a quarter of an hour by public transport. If you’re arriving in the northern capital by train from Moscow, you’ll be glad to know that the hotel is just a short walk from the Moscow Station as well.
Friends on Vosstaniya takes up the entire building of house 11 on Vosstaniya street. New arrivals can enter the hotel by using the entry phone system, while those who have already checked in can use their key card to open the main door. Reception is on the second floor, where our friendly receptionists will greet you and help you settle in. Also on the second floor, you’ll find a cosy and spacious common room complete with a large plasma screen TV and table football (these have become something of a fixture in all Friends hotels!), where events and activities of all kinds are always going on.
There are 37 separate double rooms in the hotel, and in three of these it’s possible to sleep a third person. The rooms are all distinguished by their bright design, their practical layouts and their comfortable choice of furnishings.
The eight dorms in the hotel are are quite spacious and offer the chance to stay in the centre of St Petersburg for some of the lowest prices in town.
Each floor of the hotel has shared bathing and toilet facilities: washbasins, clean and contemporary shower cabins and toilets. There’s also a fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare your own food and enjoy soft drinks. There are also plenty of places to eat out in nearby, some of which are right outside the hotel entrance.
Communication with the rest of the world is also made easy at Friends on Vosstaniya: there are several computers hooked up to the internet for guests to use at no charge. There’s also free wireless throughout the hotel and complimentary national and international phone calls available. If you’d rather stay in touch the old-fashioned way, then grab a postcard and stamps from our reception, write it to a friend and we’ll even post it for you!
Friend on Vosstaniya is looking forward to your visit! See you soon!
