Hostels

The Baikaler runs 3 hostels: Baikaler, Balalaika and Belka. Two of them are located in Irkutsk, another one is in Listvyanka, lake Baikal (70 km away).

Baikaler Hostel is located right in the center of Irkutsk. It has – no doubt about that – the best location among all other hostels in Irkutsk. We opened it in 2005 (it was known as Jack’s Homestay). The Hostel has 1 twin room and 2 dorm room with 3 bunk beds, meaning 6 people sleep in one room. It is very popular, so it gets booked up quickly esp in hight season.

Balalaika is our new project! More space, different location. It should be open in April 2014.  (it was once know as Nerpa Hostel) This property is located very close to the train station yet not far from the city center. Its price is lower. It is bigger. I believe Balalaika Hostel is more convenient for younger travelers or anyone whose train departure is too late or too early.

If you are to choose between those two hostels in Irkutsk, which one to chose ?

I guess this decision should be based on your personal details and preferences.

And, finally Belka Hostel (formerly known as Eco-Hostel). This is where I go there to rest. It is a really special place. Many people reported about getting enthusiastic and happy, about having some amazing colorful dreams. Many people keep in after the long train trip. I go there to “switch off”from the city, to work with the wood, to observe the green hillside and, sometimes, to see the squarrel (Belka in Russian) .

We have 3 twin rooms, 4 bed dorm and 8 bed dorm rooms, all facilities are shared.
