I emailed Jack to make a booking and received a very friendly and quick reply confirming my reservation which was great. I managed to find the hostel fairly easily, although it is quite a walk from the main road, and was quickly checked in. The hostel itself is lovely - wood features, great views and very clean and warm. I... More

When we reached the hostel, we rang the bell intermittently which didn't work. For 25 minutes in the cold we frequently attempted to use the bell and rapped the knocker on the gate. About to give up and try elsewhere, we frustratingly heard an unfriendly voice say through the buzzer "we have a bell", as if we hadn't been trying... More

I was at Baikaler Eco Hostel with a friend during February, 2015. The place is just so cute! Everything on wood, the house was beautiful and the accommodations were nice as well, clean. The place is an ECO hostel, so the showers and everything else are sort of 'economic'. So don't expect to have the best shower ever - the... More

A good and correct hostel. The manager is very helpfull. She can arrange some visits around the lake or other activities. A lot of backpackers stay here so the atmosphere is very international and fun . It is pretty far 1.5km from the Baikal lake. The only big problem is : there is no wifi!

Very nice hostel, clean with good facilities and nice staff, good price and banya for extra 400 Rub. Minus point is no WiFi and a bit far away - 15min walk uphill from the bus station, the very last house.

This place is a little chaotic - they kept moving people from room to room from day to day. It's a good walk up hill from town. The rooms were comfortable. It's not very big and it has a nice kitchen where people tended to sit, chat and have a few beers when we were there. The manager was quite... More

Ok, so this is a review of a tour provided by baikaler rather than the property but pls read on! We stayed in Irkutsk but arranged a city tour and lake baikal tour with jack. Turned out we were the only two people on the tour which was brilliant. We had an interesting tour of Irkutsk and its main historical... More

The hostel is quite a walk from the centre of town. But it's a really comfy and clean place. The rooms are pretty basic but have quite a huge TV with a DVD player. In the kitchen you could find a small selection of dvds. We didn't check, but down in the common room you could probably find some more.... More

Mixed feelings about this place. It actually looks good, the beds are comfortable, it's clean and big. Everything in the kitchen works and the double room even has a tv with dvd player (you can find movie DVDs on both floors in the common area). Despite of that, some other aspects must be taken into consideration. The hostel is really... More

Stayed here in February 2015, only here for one night but the staff went out of their way to help us - we had organised dogsledding through the hostel in advance, they dropped us off at the site, they also organised for the public bus to Irkutsk to pick us up right outside the hostel. Unfortunately when we were in... More
