Terms and Conditions

terms and conditions


1. Arrivals and Departures

New arrivals can check into their rooms / beds after 12pm each day if the rooms / beds are occupied. Guests may arrive earlier and leave their luggage at the hostel but access to rooms will not be granted until after 12pm. Please note that to avoid disturbance of our sleeping customers,we do not allow to arrive earlier than 8 am. If your train happen to arrive before 8am, you can use the service of a resting room at the 2nd floor of the train station or you can have a nice long breakfast at Hot Express 24hr 5 min walk to the left as you exit the train station.

Please note that due massive number of changing plans, shifting arrival dates and no shows, I leave a right to provide alternative accommodation in one of the centrally located homestays / hostels for the same rate if your booking is messed up.

Please keep in mind that all trains in Russia run on Moscow time (Irkutsk time = Moscow time + 5hr). So if your train ticket says indicates arrival time as 3 am, that in fact means 8am local time.

Departing guests must remove all their belongings from their room, and check out, before 12 pm (noon). After this time guests may make use of the luggage storage facilities but all possessions must be removed from the room and the key handed back to reception.

2. Check In

Check in can be arranged immediately upon arrival if the room / bed is available. Otherwise, check in can be granted at 12 am (noon)

3. Check Out
Check out is at 12pm (noon) and guests must hand the keys back to reception.

4. Age Restriction

Guests are expected to respect other guests, staff, local residents and property. In the case of groups, the group leaders must ensure that all members of their group behave in an acceptable manor.
