This is how the hostel’s site looks like.
And that’s harsh reality. Complete with inebriated personages outside, within the gravity pull of “Zakusochnaya” in the same building. But they are definitely worth the price, and respond enquiries fast and to the point, and are working hard to make the place functional and cozy.
On the negative side, their potential guests need to be warned about lack of sound-proofing, which makes co-existing with a children’s sports team, as was our case, difficult, and absence of many small conveniences, such as night lights by the beds.
Still, this remains the cheapest accommodation option in the whole of Apatity. Had we not run into a bunch of overenergized teenagers the impressions could have been even better.
