Маленькая квартира, переделенная в хостел. 3 комнаты (женская, смешанная и двухместная), маленькая кухня. Душ совмещен с с туалетом + стиралка, следовательно, утром очереди. Не очень загружен. Персонал приветлив, пытаются во всём помочь. В принципе расположен в центре (очень близко к Университету), но найти с первого раза не очень просто. Не дают ключ от подъезда, нужно каждый раз звонить в домофон и отвечать кто идёт. Забавно было, что меня дня три при каждом моём заходе спрашивали заселяюсь ли я, т.к. персонал менялся и при виде нового лица у них возникал этот вопрос, что в какой-то момент несколько подзадолбало. Чисто, аккуратно.
Like many hostels throughout the post-soviet countries, it is definitely hard to find due to the Sovietish buildings' architectural designs. However, it is clean, neat, and has lovely and friendly staff. Plus, it is almost near or walk distance to everywhere in the city.
This is a very small and cozy place, many foreign guests, clean and maintained interior, friendly stuff, located in the very center of the city, wifi worked perfectly for me, and... ask for breakfast, they will make it for free:)
At the same tine, you should know that the hostel is made in a regular 3-bedroom apartment, it is located deep in the yards (although in the city center), so it is difficult to find. use google maps and look for the building number 4A, and there is a path from only one of the streets going inside. The path is also on google maps. The stuff does not speak English, but they are used to foreigners, so they will help.
Excellent location, close to everything you wish to explore. We booked private room. There is all equipment including washing mashine and fridge so it would be convenient for a long stay. We also used the sightseeing advice the reception lady gave us. We were happy with our choice.
We stayed in a private double room at this hostel for one night during a trans-Mongolian railway journey. The hostel was very hard to find (we never would have found it if some friendly locals hadn't helped) but I think there are some good directions on the website if you can check that first. The room was large and clean but the walls were very thin and the noise from the very small communal area/kitchen travelled easily. There was only one bathroom (shower and toilet combined) which was a little inconvenient. The staff were friendly though and free wifi was good. Overall, good value.
