This place is very well located, near the Nevsky Prospect but also two steps from the shopping and cafes area. It is not difficult to find at all. There is a contrast between the luxury of the entrance and the apartment itself, but the former Soviet kommunalka style of the room and the corridor, not to mention the bathroom, is even charming in this context. It gives a sense of cosiness and an idea of how families used to live in such apartments. The contact with Ekaterina was easy and she always replied quickly. I would definitely recommend this place for such a quality & price value.

Ekaterina is a great host. However, the pictures on Air Bnb do not match the actual space. The room we got was not on the pictures, it was much smaller. Also, the kitchen looks really spacious on the pictures but it is not. There is no room for 4 chairs like in the photo and it is very untidy and full of stuff. It's not dirty, but just very full. Also the hallway is packed with things and the bathroom is really tiny. It's not a problem, but useful to know in advance. The location of the place is great, almost everything is in walking distance and it's only 10 minutes away from Nevsky Prospekt. Also, there are some restaurants and a supermarket within 5 minutes reach.

Ekaterina’s place is nice, big and clean, the place location is amazing Nevsky street is 1 block away and the area surrounded restaurants, cafes, breweries and anything that you might need. If you want to visit Saint Petersburg without have to deal with traveling in metro or buses to go to the store or go to eat, then Ekaterina’s place is the place to be. As host Ekaterina is willing to help you in all the things you need to go around and visit SPB, she helped me to get a Russian sim card and to make it work. She speaks 4 languages I think so most of the time we talked in Spanish but sometimes talked in English, so regarding communication there is no barer here. I highly recommend this place and Ekaterina as host, I won’t doubt to come back here for the world cup next year

Location is great, really great. The building inside/outside looks great too. The room we had was a bit small but ok, bed is comfortable. The room was clean. Main problem was noise and natural lights. At this time of the year, there is almost sunlight all time, and the blinds did not block any. The building gives on a street that can get noisy. But it's not awfully noisy either. We didn't use anything other than room and bathroom. Bathroom is however not so good. Extremely small, and not so clean - at least this is the feeling this gives you. Host was nice and friendly. Overall satisfied and would recommend to anyone looking for a non-expensive central stay who don't mind about bathroom and light in the room during the night.
