Great location near train station, but terrible staff. Things I didn't like Staff unhelpful - one had her young son with her who was screaming at midnight despite everyone in the dorm trying to sleep. At 10.30am his mother insisted I only whisper to her as he was sleeping. Another staff member took over the kitchen for dinner with her... More

My wife and I booked two nights here and certainly warmed to it after a fairly dubious start as we couldn't work out where it was due to its sign being so small and almost impossible to make out at 4 in the morning! That said, the lady working there did let us in at that time and was very... More

I stayed both here and at the Nerpa Hostel and there is no comparison. In every way the Nerpa hostel far exceeded this one re: accommodations, services and staff!! The wifi, when I was there, did not work and the staff was not available for assistance.

Its a basic hostel, nothing fancy. 13 beds (6 + 7) but only one bathroom. Kitchen is pretty decent and staff very helpful. I deducted 2 stars because the location of the hostel is pretty dodgy (depending on from where you get to the hostel) and city center is a 15 min walk. Also, although we booked a 6 bed... More

First big plus: they open the door in te middle of the night! Our train arrived at 2:30 a.m. And the hostel we booked (baikaler) didnt open the door. After driving through town and looking in the lonely planet we found Admiral. And the let us in! Great! Why not every hostel is like this, i still dont understand. The... More

Only one toilet with shower which is definitely inconvenience when it's full house of 16 guests. The receptionist did not take care much in housekeeping & guests and did not put quiet control after midnight. Kitchen is not clean enough

Great staff with very good English and willing to help out in any way possible. It is close to everything, comfortable, has good wifi and facilities that are clean. It is small so you get to know everyone quickly, great if travelling alone.

Hostel was cozy, clean and loction was great. Staff was very friendly and helpfull. Wi-fi was working and we could left our luggages there for couple of days with no extra fee. If I ever go again to Irkutsk, I know where I'll stay!

We only stayed one night as it was a flying stopover after coming back from Lake Baikal before getting back on the Trans-Siberian Express at 5am. It is a very small and basic hostel with one communal bathroom and a small kitchen/sitting area. I wouldn't really want to stay here for an extended period of time but for what we... More

The hostel is located about 1km from the Irkutsk train station (across the bridge) and has a tram stop nearby. It's a small hostel, with one dorm room that can fit 7 people and another semi-dorm room that can fit 4 people. They also have one double bed room, and only one toilet and shower for all guests. The hostel... More
