Hotel voucher / confirmation for visa free 72 hours visit

Hi,

Me and couple of friends are planning to visit St. Petersburg next weekend. We booked our trip with St. Peter Line ferry including return tickets and city bus tour and booked the hostel with booking.com.

Have some of you booked the acomodation through booking.com while traveling to SPB with the visa free 72 hour visit? What kind of confirmation did you need at the border control? Is a simple booking confirmation from booking.com enough?

I am just a bit worried beacuse I just realised we are supposed to pay for the hostel upon arrival, so we do not have a confirmation of payment, only booking details. Could this be a problem at the boarder control?

Thank you!

Passport control didn't ask for or look at mine. Only the St Peter Line staff wanted to see it upon checking in. Border control only wants to see passport, arrival card. On the ferry heading back to Helsinki now.

Thank you!

Did you had just the generic booking.com confirmation of booking? Or does the St Peter Line staff want to see some other one too?

I showed them my booking confirmation on my phone, I didn't have it printed out.

I have worried whether confirmation should be printed out.Your answer helped.During trip in europe,it is difficult to print out when you make a reservation on the smart phone or I pad.Thank You again.
