    2/5

    It's cheap, but...

    It was cheap and close enough to the pier to make it appealing, but those are about the hostel's only good points. The staff was generally unhelpful and spoke next to no English. The biggest complaint, though, was the pitiful wifi which never really worked as one would expect.

    4/5 Good

    Good location, great staff, great guests

    The location is practically the center of Sochi, close to everything. The people (guests) there are generally young and energetic. The toilet is clean. Staffs speak english and are really friendly and helpful. Stuff always play cool electronica songs in the common area, it's cool. For its good price and generally comfortable experience i give 4/5. (One thing to be aware of is that the hostel hides inside the alley, which is hard to find for first time visitors)

    4/5 Good

    Excellent staff, great location!

    Arrived early on the train and the hotel staff let us check in early. They were great and rooms as described. Our only issue was with registration. The law is when you move from place to place you are required to get registered if you are a foreigner and the limit is 7 days if you are not yet registered for the first time, and 5 days if you already have been registered. My daughter and her friends were gone 6 days becuase of train travel and we picked this hostel becuase in the Expedia ad it clearly states they register guests. They stated they only do this if you are at their hostel for 7 days adn in Sochi it is no big deal. They are not foreigners and it is a BIG DEAL and as a foreigner if you run into the wrong corrupt militia they will give you a hassle, not let you go and try and get bribes. If you carry current registrations, you are at much much less risk of this. If you do not you are at risk. I have traveled to Russia for 23 years now. I have been through a lot of situations especially with corrupt Gai and Militia. When this hostel did not register my daughter I was not plased with this. The owners need to train their staff. it is not the staffs fault, it is the owners fault or the managers. Charge 200 rubles if you must, but give foreigners their registration. Once you leave Sochi and go to other cities especially in the KavMinVody area you need this registration. This is not an option and needs to be corrected. At least correct the Expedia ad.

    Pros: Location was perfect and it was quite quiet for being a hostel. Rooms very clean an perfect for waht we wanted.

    Cons: In the Expedia ad it states they register foreign guests. This is required by law and the front staff were confused. We never got registered.

    5/5 Excellent

    Я доволен

    Хостел достойный. Цены очень приемлемы для центра города. Чисто и опрятно. Персонал дружелюбный.

    3/5

    Простой хостел и ничего более

    Минимальный выбор за разумные деньги. Заранее заказал 2х местный номер. При въезде получил 4х местный с трубой которая дула холодным воздухом пока не заболеешь. Самый большой минус просыпаясь рано утром 5-30 до 6-30 обнаруживал открытую дверь на улицу и оставленные без присмотра ячейки с ценными вещами. Заходи,взламывай и забирай. В том числе технику в холе. Делайте выводы.
