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.

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

This is a good place to stay, friendly owner, very warm. Top notch, clean shower. Dodgy leopard skin bed spread though...! Bit of a dark alley way to get to the door which is off the courtyard. Handy for the railway station.

Me and my friend stayed at the Admiral during our Trans-Mongolian journey for three nights. I can honestly say that this is one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed at. The staff was very friendly and helpful and they spoke very good English. Also the bathroom was very clean, it actually didn't feel like we were in Russia :)... More

We started off on the wrong foot with this hostel, as we couldn't find the driver who was supposed to pick us up at the train station (turns out she was late) so we had to take an expensive taxi. Because of the mix-up they let us do laundry for free, which was nice. The hostel is small, with one... More
