Ulan Ude Travellers House

Top choice hostel in Ulan-Ude
Image by Hostelworld

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.

Information from Hostelworld


We are the only english-speaking hostel located in the heart of the city at the Lenin's head square. Perfect location gives you just a stone's throw from the transsib train station and less than a minute to the main sights of the city.

From our window you can see a tip of the Lenin's head's nose.

Join our cooking evenings, we cook for you 3 days a week.

Roomy, cozy flat with a guest kitchen, spacey common room and a hot shower will serve you as the best base for your exploring.

The hostel has 2 rooms for guests, each has 8 dorms (4 double bank beds) all equipped with comfy mattresses, blankets, pillows and bed linen. And 1 big common area room for talking, having fun, playing games etc.

We also arrange bus tickets to Mongolia (11 hour drive), arrange TOURS to lake Baikal and Ulan-Ude (OldBelievers, Buryat village, etc), arrange train tickets through Russia, help you get a mongolian visa and much more.

Denis, the owner, has traveled a lot through TransSib, so he'll be happy to share the experience and to give useful tips.
