Hot top floor, fitted with full kitchen and basic bathroom. nightly surprise visit by cat (so don't leave the window open). Friendly staff made us wait for no apperant reason @check in. No hassle @check out though. Convenient location and cheap. Expect what you pay for. Best thing about the hostel is that it's a stone's throw away from the... More

The front desk representative was rude and unhelpful. The location was excellent and the facilities were nice. There was a great sitting room but the Wi-Fi didn't work very well from that room. The bunks were comfortable and clean.

Receptionist can speak English and was very warmhearted, she give us lots of help, including renting a car, recommend supermarket and restaurant, give instruction on site seeing and etc. The room price is affordable, and the location is good. not far from Kirov square. I would like to say, if you are a economical traveler, it is a good choice... More

Seems to be set in residential tower block. Easy to find, but may be 15 mins walk from centre. Quiet. Stayed twice. First very large twin on ground floor. Second a compact double on 6th floor (no lift). Both have fridge, hot plate and basic kitchenware. Free luggage storage. Rooms well heated. Visa registration cost R400 per person. Excellent English.... More

Basic hostel, big doublerooms. No complaints really, except the whole buildning feels quite old and a shabby. Location alright, could be more central but only a short walk away from the absolute center. Easy to find, good service, we could leave our luggage there while spending a night in Listvyanka.

I arrived in Irkutsk after taking the trans-Siberian from Moscow, and was delighted by the room I had in this lovely, centrally located hostel. My own bathroom, with a tub, fully equipped kitchen and view over the town. Could not be more comfortable or happier. It is spotlessly clean, and the staff more than helpful, good enough wifi to use... More

Irkutsk hostel was awesome place to relax after long motorcycle ride (400 km in one day on terrible Russian Siberian roads). Showers and toilets are clean but was small to our tallest friend Rafik :) We stayed here 6 nights, this hostel is located just in a few kilometres from downtown in walking distance. Girls working here were helpful, speaking... More

The hotel has a good location to walk into town. There are also supermarkets close by. It may be a stretch to call it a hostel. The communal area is tiny. It had more of a hotel or apartment feel. The reception girls were all extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was nice as well. This is a great option... More

The hotel is handily positioned for sightseeing and not too far from the railway station - that's the good part. Now for the not so good: The rooms have been badly refurbished so doors are hard to open, the sheets dont fit the beds, water spills onto the floor when you have a shower and the curtains are almost transparent...
