The second hostel in Irkutsk was opened in summer 2004. It was founded by two young computer specialists, who got the idea of opening a hostel in Irkutsk during their journeys through China and Mongolia. As was the case already with the Baikalhostel initiated by us, Alexej and Julia opened their hostel in a totally normal Russian flat as well. They both have a job during the day, but nevertheless there is always somebody pleased to help you in the hostel.

The access to the hostel is somewhat adventurous, but in exchange it has a good location. During summer it can get crowded very quickly due to the small amount of rooms, so it is highly recommended to call ahead. The hostel doesn't have such an international atmosphere like the Baikalhostel, but it is very cosy and given that it doesn't dispose of many beds, the only bathroom and toilet should be sufficient.

The hostel is situated not far from the Kirov square in the centre of Irkutsk. To get to the hostel from the train station, take the tram towards the centre (2 stops). At the stop you are already on the street ulitza Stepan Rasin, now you just have to find number 12. The building is a bit aside the street and downstairs there is a pharmacy (Apteka). The entry to the hostel is on the backside of the building and unfortunately there is no decal information to be found (look out for numbers 1-4 and 11-12). At the door there is a combination lock with the code 3 6 9. Press all three numbers at the same time an then push the door open. The hostel is located in apartment number 12 (Kvartier 12) on the second floor. It all sounds a bit adventurous, but this is absolutely normal for Siberia.


Dormitory: 500 Rubel
