We have studied the descriptions of more than a thousand hostels in the largest cities of Russia and identified those that allow travelers not only to save on accommodation, but also to get aesthetic pleasure from it.

As a rule, for the sake of low rates, hostel owners reduce costs as much as possible, which can make hostels look ascetic. But recently, more and more atmospheric and non-standard projects have begun to appear that are not inferior in their aesthetics to full-format accommodation facilities. Comparing hostels according to five key criteria (interior design, furniture, additional items and decor, organization of public areas, harmonious solutions), we have selected fifteen objects worthy of the title of the most beautiful hostels in Russia.

The list of finalists includes hostels from eight cities of the country: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnoyarsk, Kaliningrad, Kazan, Krasnodar, Vladivostok and Yekaterinburg. The study took into account only those properties that position themselves in booking systems as hostels, and not, for example, hotels with shared rooms or capsule hotels.

“Offers of unusual hostels are addressed primarily to a new generation of travelers, demanding and economical at the same time. Such objects are sometimes called not hostels, but hostels. From the English “posh” – “chic”. Postels began to appear actively in Russia before the World Cup, but in large cities this process will continue in the coming years. The cost of a night in hostels, which we ranked among the most beautiful, starts from 400 rubles per day. Of course, due to this, they are in great demand and can even be fully booked for weekends or holidays ”
