The Baikaler used to have 3 hostels: Baikaler, Balalaika and Belka.
After having run Baikaler Hostel on Lenin street #9, apt #11 for 15 years, I sold it and shut down Balalaika for a various of reasons.
At the moment, Jack Sheremetoff / Baikaler owns only Belka Hostel in Listvyanka.
I have no more hostels in Irkutsk ! I tried to partner with Viva Hostel on Sukhe-Bator street #8 but it failed.
Presently, for Irkutsk , I recommend to book Montana Hostel or any other hostel you like.
