Andrey and Sasha HomestayDefinitely one of the best and most authentic places to stay in St. Petersburg.

The homestay has three locations all right in center in a walking distance from main sights and metro stations, with a lot of restaurants and bars around.

The second apartment is located
The third apartment has only one room for rent and is usually occupied by foreign students taking language courses at St. Petersburg State University, as it is just round the corner.
All apartments are very clean; there are washing machines, kitchen appliances. You can use free wi-fi, drink as much as you can tea, coffee and vodka (!). There is also a good collection of DVDs to pass away time, if you feel like staying inside. It is a homestay, but you shouldn't expect to see a typical Russian apartment. Andrey and Sasha have redecorated apartments themselves with Venice being their inspiration. The sound proofing is very well done, so if other guests are partying in the kitchen you can still enjoy sweet dreams in your comfy bed in the room next door.
Sasha and Andrey go out of their way to make sure their guests have great time in Russia. They can pick you up from bus and train stations, airport and even from Helsinki. Wanna see ballet? The owners will help you get discounted tickets, as well as rent bikes and even take you on tour to the real Russian village.
The price is negotiatable and varies depending on season, number of guests and length of stay. On average a single room will cost you about 50 euros, double room - 70 euros, while during high season it will be about 40 euros per person. Another option for bigger companies is to pay 140 euros and rent the whole apartment on Gorohovaya that accomodate up to 9 people. Booking is done personally via email, so sometimes it might take a longer time to get your email replied. Summer months are usually quite busy, so it’s better to book in advance, especially if you are more than two.
