In Irkutsk we only spend half a day. But that is plenty as the city is small. Nice timber houses, lovely flower arrangements in the parks and a few remarkable old churches.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAdmiral Hostel Irkutsk
Nice hostel, although 1 combined bath, shower, toilet and laundry room between 15 guests could be annoying. Other than that I enjoyed my night here.

The staff were very pleasant, friendly and helpful
