Score from 85 reviews Good 7.6/10
The cheapest and possibly the best accommodation that we saw along the Trans-Siberian. Great kitchen, clean bathrooms, large bed in the room. Staff spoke English and was nice even though we came at one in the morning.
Could not fault this place. Best value for money in irkutsk, and many other locations in russia. Easy to get to from train station. Restaurants & markets all around. Trams into centre are frequent. Wished we had stayed longer. Staff extremely friendly & helpful. Facilities more than adequate. 2 rooms to a bathroom. Well equipped kitchen for everyone to use. Small fridge in room. The best.
Good location if you want to be close to the train station. Offered free laundry.
One of the two closets places to stay to the irkutsk pass train station. You can walk here from the station in 10-15 minutes. Head over the road from the station and up the obvious staircase, take care, the steps aren't well maintained. Then wend your way through a back road until you reach Gorgolya and turn right. Rumanyentsev is the a few streets along Contrary to Google maps, you'll want to turn right onto RUMANYENTSEV not left, and the hotel is in the newer block on the left. The sign, DOBRY KOT - with a cat on it is easy to spot. Great English speaking reception. Wifi was awful the night we arrive, but great in the morning. Russia Today (English speaking) channel on the TV if you're missing the news at all. Our room shared a bathroom with one other room. Good, decent sized rooms, a proper large double bed (probably a kingsize), desk, chair, two bedsid tables and a wardrobe. The rain on the tin roof outside was a distraction that our Trans-Siberian weariness overcame quickly. GREAT GREAT shower, and clean bathroom. Super, well equipped (stove top, microwave, several tables and chairs) kitchen. There's also apparently a laundry, which we didn't use, but a fab relief from the train, and great location, with good facilities. Stayed a second night after the CircumBaikal.. Triple room with private bath, again, all great, apart from spotty Internet.
Free laundry, big and well-equipped kitchen, minimarket 2min from hotel open till 23 pm, frequent buses to city-center
Very cold in the room even if it was very warm outside and no AC

Internet was very iffy
The location was great for us, as we arrived late at the train station, and had to depart a couple of days later very early from the train station; the hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the station. It's a bit of a ways to the city center, but the trams and buses from the train station all, more or less, head in the same direction towards the center and were simple enough to get the hang of. The location was peaceful enough, at least with a closed window; it was cold enough outside at the time, though, that a closed window was a good thing. The staff is very helpful and were able to communicate with us very well. The kitchen was also nice and well set up for simple meals.
Very close to train station if you know the short cut. Not close to center but lots of transport from train staion
Clean and tidy good as transit hotel out of irkurst. with kitchen walking distance to train station which is why we stayed for one night after staying 3 days at wonderful dauria apartments, listvyanka on lake Baikal
its comfortable for short stay as inbetween hotel.
This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in Europe. Very clean and comfortable. I stayed there for just one night coming back after visiting Listvyanka to take the Transib to Beijing, it's very close to the train station.
The staff is english speaking and helpfull. Very clean place with a clean Common kitchen. Very modern place. near from the train station.
Geographic location (the other side of the river)
The hotel is clean, bathroom and bedroom are good and the bed itself comfortable. There's nothing bad about the hotel. The first receptionist we had to deal with when we arrived was very helpful and kind. The location is good if being close to the train station is what you're looking for. But...
If you're planning to enjoy and visit the city, the location is not convenient at all. First it's far from the center and all the city activities, and second the surroundings look terrible (there's even a warning in the kitchen telling guests to close the window when finished as it is not safe outside...). Also the second receptionist was not so nice, as if our requests were really annoying her. It's a pity...
Clean room, 5 minutes to train station, clean bathroom,
Far away to karl marx street, no seperate bed room
Very helpful staff, Mariya is the best, nice big clean rooms, high speed internet, walking distance from train station, big kitchen
Extremely helpfull staff, good speed wifi, close to the train station, open 24h, big clean rooms, luxury bathroom, high pressure, big kitchen, looks brad new, everything was perfect.
nothing, just perfect!
The stuff is very friendly and helpful, the hostel is located very close to the train station if you know a shortcut, otherwise you need to take a taxi or walk quite a while. Far from the city center, restaurants and bus station.
Some of the guests were smoking in the kitchen. Another thing was unexpected problem with the hot water the first evening we arrived. Even though there is a dedicated boiler in the hostel, the stuff members did not know how to fix the problem and arrange hot water.
Near the train station Nice receptionist Nice and friendly neighbourhood Quiet and relaxed Clean
Far from city centre Wifi reception is not very good Difficult to find the exact location
Very friendly and attentive staff. Good location, clean and quiet room, good showers. Large kitchen.
The receptionist is so nice and helpful.
Very well located near the railway station, the staff was very friendly and speaked good english
very clean, comfort, good kitchen
New hotel that is well-run Two rooms share 1 bath room
Surroundings (residential area)
It is perfect for those who comes to or leave Irkutsk via train. You could ask the staff for a shortcut to the railway station. Staff could give u practical information and are helpful. Rooms are clean and quiet.
Need to walk or take bus or tram to the city centre.
quite close to the train station
Clean room Comfortable bed Powerful shower Close to train station Excellent value
Single duvet for double bed but given a second one on request Sheet too small for the bed Out of the city Tip for travellers: get a meter cab, our taxi driver quoted 500 roubles we bargained him down to 300, he got lost and as we only had a 500 note he wouldn't give us the change and held bags to ransom (this was a 500-700 cab). Have exact change for taxis
