Thanks to Crimean Tatars' entrepreneurial skills, Bakhchysaray is now a great base for budget travellers, but guesthouses are rarely signposted and hard to find, so it's better to call ahead and arrange a pickup. Otherwise, drop by the Tourist Information Centre and ask for directions. Budget travellers, watch out for a new hostel, which the eminent owners of Villa Bakhitgul are planning to open at vul Lenina 100, near the palace.
