I didn't stay for the night but went there because where were outside without possibilities to go back to our homestay... But people there have been so helpful and nice, that's a good souvenir. The place look nice, not far from the train station (a bit difficult to find) and the bathroom marvelous. That deserves a good feedback !

the positive: very friendly staff, warm environment, cozy living room with kitchen (nice selection of tea), free pc and internet, very comfortable sofa, 2 very clean toilets, very nice (young people-oriented) drawings on the walls, easy to speak and get to know to other backpackers. the negative: the ladder to go to the room situated at the basement is made...

Great hostel! I met the owner, Max, when he ran his old hostel. This hostel is only a few years old and I definitely recommend this to every person I know going to Irkutsk. Subway is only about two blocks away if your craving an American sandwich. The main square of the city is within walking distance and the bazaar,... More

We stayed here for 5 nights on our stopover from Transiberian trip. The hostel is well located at a walkable distance from the train station which is very convenient. We quickly felt extremely at ease and almost at home thanks to Sasha and Maxim who work here. They have been providing us with all useful information and a welcoming atmosphere.... More

We turned up after being let down elsewhere with no reservation and although didnt stay overnight were accommodated for baggage storage, showers, internet, kitchen and all facilities for a very reasonable (perhaps too cheap) price. Great staff, cosy warm feel. Super location close to train station. Would stay again.

It's a small flat with living room, kitchen, clean bathrooms and comfortable beds. All the staff is super helpful and really nice. There was a great atmosphere when I went and met lots of people who were just happy so socialise there in the evening, sharing drinks and food. It's 20 minutes away from the city centre but 10 minutes... More

This hostel is clean, bright, cheery, but the main reason I loved this hostel so much is because of the staff. They are all amazing, and believe me, I got to know them all really well. I stayed in Irkutsk for three weeks while scouting out a location for my College's term abroad program to Russia. Nerpa Hostel is in... More

First of all, the location is great especially if you come from the railway station. It's just 10 minutes walking. The hostel itself is really nice: very clean and bright. The staff is really friendly and helpfull. I stayed in Irkutsk for a couple of days. And I was lucky, because Maxim (a guy from the stuff) explained me everything... More

This is a nice place with friendly and helpful staff - and free pasta! It's large, so if the smaller Trans Sib hostel (nearby) is full you can head here. They book train tickets, have lockers, do laundry etc, have a nice map of where to go in town and food and random 'stuff' exchange boxes which is quite cool.... More
