Lonely Planet review
Occupying a renovated 19th-century flat, the 10-bed dorm here is in the best appointed room, with beautiful plaster mouldings on the walls and ceiling. Smaller dorm rooms are simpler in design but all have newly polished parquet flooring, high ceilings and big windows.
Our independent authors have visited Hostel Pilau and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Smolny & Vosstaniya.
