Hostel. Good location in city centre and a level walk to shops, restaurants and bars. The shared facilities are busy and not always as clean and tidy as could be - but not dirty. There are a few double rooms as well as hostel rooms. Lovely staff. However, not usual hostel camaraderie probably due to the fact only the staff spoke much English! We hired a car from the airport and were able to park safely and securely on-site. Lake Baikal is about a two hour car journey and is also possible by bus of train.

A European-level hostel in the heart of Irkutsk. What I liked about it: - Security. The entrance door is in a small yard which is isolated from streets. Both ways are locked, guests get magnetic keys at reception so that they can open these entrances and get inside. No muggles around. - Easy access. There's a large sign telling you where the hostel is and you don't need to climb to the 5th floor without a lift. (Still, I'm not sure whether this venue is suitable for the disabled or not). - Nice reception. Girls have been welcoming and ready to help. I had a couple of requests and once made my booking by simply asking them (without logging onto any booking website). Printed a page for me without any questions. Let me leave my pretty large backpack after I checked out so that I grabbed it in the afternoon. - Good kitchen. They have everything you need there for cooking. - Great location. The hostel is right in the middle of Irkutsk, everything is at a walking distance from there. There's a 24/7 foodstore a couple of minutes away. - Cleaningness. Just no complaints about that. (Spent several nights in a private room). - Wi-Fi signal was OK. This was extremely important for me because I need much job to do and also had some vacations plans so bookings, tickets, etc. - And what was also very valuable - it was quiet. At hot summer time you have to open windows to get some fresh air in (at night too) and I would not like it to share all noise from the streets with me. - Bonus: unlike many European hotels, they give you a showel so you don't need to pay for it separately. (At least for this private room, I'm not sure about dorms). - Company! Indeed, travelers like high scores at the well-known websites, location, etc. so you can expect people from different parts of the world to talk with. I spent a night in another hostel and there was a large company of people from one country who were 100% busy with themselves and didn't pay attention to anyone else, entering any rooms and toilets and corners without warning, rambling around, leaving their food on tables, etc. This didn't happen to me in Rukavichka. You're not allowed to walk inside the living rooms and the kitchen in your shoes, so have your slippers (I had) or be prepared to rent it at the reception. The only strange thing was a TV set working 24/7 in the lobby but I didn't spend much time in the lobby so it wasn't any trouble. I definitely recommend this place for people coming to Irkutsk.
