I stayed in this hotel +14nights and really enjoyed it and friendly staff and owner Marina and her husband were warm heart fellows. The hostel totally clean and comfort not far from the center. They will give you best rates if you are staying there a longer. Regards, Oso

The hostel can be hard to find. I depended on the simpathy of a girl in the bus who helped me to find the place, but apart from that the hostel is amazing! Great atmosphere, amazing facilities and a helpful staff.

We followed the directions from the train station on the 116 bus that the hostel advised but it was not clear which way to turn after you got off the bus....you need to walk in the direction you came from on the bus and you will see the chemist a few meters down the road on your left. The hostel... More

After a long 4 days onboard the Trans Siberian express I arrived in Irkutsk. I booked into the City Lodge and they made me feel welcome straight away. The hostel is kept clean to a standard that would make my mother proud. All the staff speak excellent english which helped with my non Russian. Although the hostel is not central... More

This is a very cute and clean boutique hostel. When you look at a map, it may look far, but Irkutsk is small and this place is VERY close to everything. We stayed in a dorm and had no problems. It's quiet and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Definitely would stay here again.

Really nice place in Irkutsk. They're not kidding about it being modern - the building is pretty new, which is rare in Russia, and it's been decorated pretty funkily with a black and white theme. I was travelling on my motorbike and there is free secure-ish parking out the front of the hostel, with video cameras. A bed in the... More

I had 3 nights in Irkutsk and spent them at the Irkutsk city lodge. The pre ordered pickup from the train station to the Hotel didn't show up so I had to take a cab Which isn't a problem but little frustrating if you wait for the pickup and nobody shows up. During my stay at the Irkutsk city lodge... More
