Lonely Planet review
Though still being built at research time, this hostel was already open and shaping up to be one of the best in town. It's certainly the most spacious, with large rooms and a good outdoor area where a sociable atmosphere can develop. All rooms, including the dorms (three to six bunks), have their own bathrooms, there's a good kitchen and the washing machine is free.
You can get there by bus 79 from the airport. Get off at the corner of Timiryazev and Markov and walk 200m south: the hostel is a two-storey building behind Markov 46.
