Address: apartment 18, building 63, Lenin street (Soviet square), Ulan-Ude, Russia.
I use two keywords for our directions - "HEAD LEFT". Our hostel is located in the absolute center of Ulan-Ude, so you need to find this center, it's Lenin's head
monument. It takes about 15 minutes walking or 3 minutes drive from the Train station. When you stand in front of Lenin's head looking at it, turn left, look for a 4-floor light-yellow building with a big sign 'S7 airlines' on the top.
The entrance is from the side of the square and it's a black door to the right to 'S7 airlines' office. Press a "Backpackers" button
on terminal and wait for us to let you in. We're on the second floor, right door.
We're on the map of Lonely Planet book as Ulan Ude Travelers House.
