Important Information

We have two 8-bed dormitory rooms (4 bunk beds equipped with reading lights and outlets) and one private room. Hi-tech shower cabin is a real delight after day of exploring the Great Siberian lands. You can chill at our comfy common kitchen, charging yourself with tea or something stronger, as well as your gadgets by our international adapters. Here you can meet sometimes some famous travellers - we keep going local travel community and invite really interesting people to our guesthouse. Guitar and book-exchange shelf are also for you. And remember - we always keep for you cold coke and beer in the fridge for reasonable price!

Our kitchen is a real piece of art. We have really good stove, Nerpa-Backpackers-branded toaster, food exchange box (which is never empty) and all that you need for cooking your favorite dishes. We offer free tea and coffee for all our guests.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Good hostel but it was under construction when we arrive so we think it will be nicer after when they get all their staff.
