I stayed here for three nights, on a trip on my motorbike. It's a great place - almost like a homestay but with the independence of a hostel. It's more than just a spare room in someone's house, like many Russian hostels - there is a nice kitchen/common room (with piano!) for hostellers and comfortable bunk beds. They arranged to... More

They also picked us up from the train station and took us to the hostel. Very nice kitchen and facilities, very fast internet, large beds and just very... More

We stayed in a private room at this hostel for two nights. The owners were really friendly and free pick-up from the train station was great, but we arrived at around 6 pm and our room wasn't ready - there was someone else still in it.

The home is comfortable with a shared kitchen and one bathroom containing a toilet and shower. The kitchen has all your cooking necessities. There... More

The facilities at GBT hostel were very nice and comfortable. We arranged for a free pick up from the train station, so it wasn't a problem that it is a little difficult to find. The hostel is a bit far from the town center, but it wasn't a problem for us. There is wi fi everywhere in the hostel and... More

Stayed in GBT Hostel in August 2010 during my Trans-Siberian journey. The place is located in a very small residential street and was quite difficult to find at first. It´s a long-long walk there from the train station - at least it definetely seemed like that at 4 in the morning with all the backpacks. It´s a small house with... More
