So central is this high-ceilinged apartment hostel, you might even catch a glimpse of Lenin’s conk from one of the windows. The 14 beds are divided between two spacious, ethnically themed dorms (Russian and Buryat), there’s a small kitchen where a free light breakfast is laid out daily, and heaps of UU information is pasted on the walls.
There's also a washing machine for guests to use. The exceptionally friendly owner, Denis Sobnakov, is in and out of town these days, but the place runs like a well-oiled machine and his staff are just as helpful in setting up trips to Baikal and around Buryatiya.
