Getting to the Hostel by Public Transport

If you choose to get to Puppet Theatre Hostel via public transport, then the best way for you is to catch the metro. The metro (i.e. subway/underground) is a cheap and convenient way to travel around the city.

The nearest metro stations to the Hostel are Ploshad Vosstania - red line on the metro map, and Mayakovskaya - green line on your metro map. Please note! it is the same metro station where two lines (red and green) meet and it has two separate exits. So if you are getting to the hostel by metro you will have to get off at one of these two stops.

General Metro Information:

Opening hours: 05.45 am - 00.15 am.

Please note! The access to the stations and interchange connections close at 00.15 am.

Metro stations are marked with a large letter "M"- (not to be confused with McDonalds!). The blue color of this letter will help you here.

You can buy a metro token ("jzeton") for only 8 Rubles (single entry fee, for unlimited number of stops), inside of every metro station at a window or booth called "kassa"(?acca).

In the same booth you can purchase a magnetic card with as many trips on it as you want with the time limit up to 3 months. (Tip: use your fingers to specify how many trips you would like to have on the card or ("karta").

St Petersburg has one of the deepest metros in the world - so be prepared for a long escalator ride down. The signs on the platforms will help you to choose the right direction. Unfortunately all signs are still in Cyrillic, so a Russian-English map will be very useful if you are not familiar with Cyrillic Alphabet.

Getting to the Hostel from the International Airport Pulkovo II:

Bus #13 departs from the bus stop on your left from the arrival terminal. The bus will cost you only 6 rubles and will drop you off at Moskovskaya (??????????) metro station. It will be the first bus stop after the roundabout, and has a huge monument in the center.

Alternatively you can catch a shuttle bus at the same bus stop. It will cost you up to 18 Rubles for your fare and an equal additional cost for your backpack. The shuttle bus numbers are ?-13, ?-213.

To make sure you are catching the right shuttle bus ask the driver two key words (Metro Moskovskaya? ) the answer "DA!" means "yes".

This particular metro station can be accessed only via underground passageway marked with a big blue letter "M" above its entrance. When you are inside, choose the train that goes to the city center. If you are not sure what train to take, check the signs and choose the line that has more stops along it. You will need to change trains at Technologichesky Institute stop. It will be the 5th stop from Moskovskaya. Walk across the station hall to catch your next train to Ploshad Vosstania -3rd stop from Technologicheskiy Institute.

Please note! There are two elevators up from Ploshad Vosstania station. The one at the end of the platform will take you to Ploshad Vosstania exit, the one in the middle to Mayakovskaya. Either of them is okay for you! When you are finished with the metro part of your trip follow your street map to the Hostel.

Getting to the Hostel from the Train Stations:

All train stations are at or near metro stations. There are 5 functioning Train Stations in St.Petersburg. (Moskovskiy -located right at Ploshad Vosstanya metro station, Vitebskiy Train Station, Finlandskiy Train Station, Baltiiskiy Train Station and Ladozskiy Train Station.) All train stations with the exception of Ladozskiy Train Station are located on the same metro line with Ploshad Vosstaniya.
