Pleasant place to be, Very nice people, helpful to advice you for your for your trip, and to book hostel around the Baikal, and on Olkhon island, really good adress


A nice small hostel near the center of town with a good kitchen to hang out in. Watch the step going into the bathroom!


A nice friendly place, well located but a little difficult to find for first timers to Russia.


When the hostel is full, one toilet and one shower for everyone can sometimes be insufficient. The 2 girls in the office were extremely helpful. We had a problem with transport and they went out of their way to help us.


Difficult to access and find the exact location for the first time. It is suggested to add some road sign on the main road or post more details, better with photos for each corner, on the web.


Admiral Hostel is a bit tucked away but on the whole close enough to the train station, embankment, and a 20-minute walk from the downtown area. We stayed in a private double for one night only but our experience was very pleasant. Alyona, who was supervising while we were there, even drove our friend to catch her night train! Would definitely recommend for the friendly staff and cozy atmosphere.

Very helpful staff member and owner who gave some handy local advise. Not busy when I stayed. Good location with supermarket round the corner and sights easily walkable. Good directions on the website helped with finding the place. Pretty sure this was one of the places with a small sign at least. Would stay again.


security was rated "poor" because we didn't get a locker in our room, but one in another room...so it was a bit uncomfortable.


hostel owner speak fluent english, and the hostel are very clean, good atmosphere. Near to railway station and bogoyavlensky cathedral.


Excellent place and the staff is nice. Here has many tour information about Lake Baikal.


Really flexible and relaxed host. Great easy-to-find location too.


Amiral hostel made me feel good, it's a quiet place to sleep after transsiberian. All is so clean and the is tramway and a small market just near. We have a good moments in this place! :)
