Full directions here

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.

  • When you stand in front of Lenin’s head looking at it,
  • turn left,
  • look for a 4 storey light yellow building with a big sign ‘S7 airlines’ on the top.


The hostel is on the right side of the building, a black door 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.
