Moreover, if you travelling alone you can always find new friends here. It became a tradition among our guests to gather in the large common room and talk, watch TV or just have some rest. However, there will not be any noise in bedrooms, so if you are looking for a quiet place – no reasons to worry, no one will disturb you.
At our common room, you will find vending machines for soft drinks, coffee and snacks, including pasta, soups, juice, chocolate and crisps.

In the subway you reach to metro station Nevsky Prospect (a blue branch, 7 stops), from the car there is an exit on the left to Griboyedov Chanal Embankment or to the right on Mikhaylovskaya Street. The exit on the left to Griboyedov Chanal Embankment is more convenient. The exit to the right on Mikhaylovskaya Street will bring you into a subway, in which it is necessary to orient because from a subway there are some exits upward.
Further on your choice it is possible to reach us by bus or to walk about 10 minutes.
If you decided to choose the bus, and went outside to Griboyedov Chanal Embankment, then you pass to the other side of the street, and on the bus-stop (directly before Kazan Cathedral) you get on the bus 191, 22, 24, 27, 3, 7 and pass 3 stops.

If from the subway you decided to walk, then from the subway go on Nevsky Prospect towards increase in numbering. Pay attention that between even and odd numbers on houses there is a strong gap, approximately to 20 houses. Therefore not to be mistaken, cross the street at once as left the subway, and go on the odd party of the street.
