This is a relatively small hostel in central Irkutsk. I found the hostel to be really social as the group areas are quite small, so lots of conversation with all your fellow travellers. Shared stories of trips out to Baikal or the Trans-Siberian.
They also organise some great trips - I did the Circumbaikal Walk - which was a great day walk, beautiful scenery, I was lucky enough to see ice on the lake in late April - which was soo beautiful.
I also stayed out at the Eco-Hostel in Lystvyanka.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Jack Sheremetoff, a Lonely Planet recommended guide, welcomes you to stay in his Baikaler Hostel (he'd rather call it a '3 guest room apartment') in the epicenter of Irkutsk (corner of Lenin and Karl Marks streets). The location of the hostel is unbeatably central and ultimately convenient. You can walk everywhere you need within minutes: ATMs, pizza or restaurant, Art Museum, river walking area. ... more less
