Room smelled funny and the kitchen was very dirty. Cooking system was broken, bathrooms everything but clean and wen ran into some drunk russian guys inside the hostel. Canceled our extra booked night after 30 minutes and we were happy to leave the next morning.

This hotel is really close to the train station. The main building's rooms were probably full so we were taken to a secondary building across the room. We spent the night there with a whole apartment to ourselves - with bathroom, shower, fridge, kitchen utensiles and even a living room. The girl who checked us in could speak good english.... More

The girl at reception spoke very little English. She didn't let me pay with credit card although that was possible. I had booked a single room, which happened to be in an apartment in another building not far away. The guy who took me there didn't speak any English and didn't show me the apartment or anything. So until he... More

Close to the train station. 5-7 min. walking distance. Also Ulan-Ude is a small city so most of the attractions and restaurants are close to Hostel House. There are lots of supermarkets and everything. We've stayed in a room for 11 person. Sheets, covers etc were clean. Bathrooms (there are more than one in a shared area) are really clean... More

I was in extreme travel, winter in Siberia. First time I visited Ulan Ude. The hostel is very well located, close to the train and bus station. Kitchen. washing machine and wireless internet access. The staff Tatiana lot of help to me. and very friendly. It's all right for a good hostel, I recommend to everyone who travels here.

We stayed 2 nights in a double room in the mini hostel, which is the "annexe" to the main hostel, or so I understand it anyways. It is very clean and well kept, 2 washrooms, washing machine, close to the train station, grocery and many restaurant in the same building. The staff was very nice to us.
