TravelPod Member ReviewsPilau Hostel St. Petersburg
The staff were polite and very helpful, the room I was in was basic but comfortable, if a little hot and humid, however street noise could be quite intrusive, but the shower, bathroom and kitchen facilities were very good and well maintained. Don't be put off by the entrance hall to the apartments when you are buzzed into the building, once you get to the apartment upstairs it does get a lot better!

... the bus would have exceeded 70 km/hr, such was the constant need to repeatedly slow and swerve to avoid potholes, bumps and other such obstacles.
We pulled into our Novgorod digs shortly before 10pm, a mere couple of hours separated from our planned 8pm arrival. With time at a premium and Vladimir determined to indoctrinate us into a Russian Banya experience, two groups were quickly formed, those that would Banya and those that wouldn't. Ashley bless ...
... our stop, on a totally different island, miles away from where he started. As everybody de-trammed, he too sauntered off and headed towards the zoo.
We, however, strode in a different direction - past the Flying Saucer metro station to the Fortress. The jazz festival should already have started by this time, but do you think we could find it? Apparently it's quite easy to lose a music festival, and we only found it after walking the ...
... Kathy had organized and participated in this small ensemble combination. They played organ solo, organ and flute and a string quartet. The church was simple compared to what we would see in the next days. White walls and a large painted canvas of the Crucifixion behind the altar. The acoustics were fabulous. I kept fading in and out due to jet lag. We finished the evening at a restaurant on the Prospect called Valhall. A simulated Viking environment. Walked home and slept ...
