I stayed here for three nights, on a trip on my motorbike. It's a great place - almost like a homestay but with the independence of a hostel. It's more than just a spare room in someone's house, like many Russian hostels - there is a nice kitchen/common room (with piano!) for hostellers and comfortable bunk beds. They arranged to...

We staid for 3 nights and it was great. There were three of us and we had a 6 person dorm to ourselves, even when others came to visit which was nice. They also picked us up from the train station and took us to the hostel. Very nice kitchen and facilities, very fast internet, large beds and just very...

We stayed in a private room at this hostel for two nights.

We we're told the room would be ready by 7.30 pm and it wasn't...

The GBT Hostel was a pleasant stay. There were only a few of us there, so it was quiet. It was more like a guesthouse or homestay, as you share the common space with the family.

Stayed in GBT Hostel in August 2010 during my Trans-Siberian journey. The place is located in a very small residential street and was quite difficult to find at first. It´s a long-long walk there from the train station - at least it definetely seemed like that at 4 in the morning with all the backpacks. It´s a small house with...
