The hostel is surrounded with the city’s attractions, cafes, museums, night clubs etc. No need to use public transport – it is all within walking distance.


Baikaler Hostel is recommended by ALL MAJOUR GUIDEBOOKS. What we offer is a spot where you can overnight, meet the other travelers and sort out your trip to Baikal. And … it is inexpensive )))

EVEN IF WE ARE FULL – come to us anyway we have a) one extra hostel in Irkutsk BALALAIKA ! b) we have partner homestays around us for the same price as Baikaler. Come on, everybody!
