Getting to Belka Hostel from Irkutsk:
You have to get from Irkutsk to Listvyanka by public minibus. Public minibuses depart regularly as soon as they get full from the Central Market area (parked between the shopping center and Central Market near the tram rails on Timiryazeva street)
Price : 100R per person one way.
When in Listvyanka, get off at the final bus stop near the Hotel Mayak. Walk 5-7 min backwards along the lake. Turn right by the white obelisk and post office and walk up to this street for 20-25 min. While walking, you will pass the Art Gallery (on your left) and children's camp (on your right).
Occasionally, the road splits. Please take the left one (you will see the transformer) and walk for 30-50 meters further. Our hostel has yellow wooden fence; you will be able to see two wooden houses with dark green roofs. Please use the intercom. Please expect some time for the manager to come out.
Belka Hostel is located almost at the end of the street, near the forest. It is just a few minutes away from all the tourist spots. The distance from Lake Baikal to the hostel is 1200m (25-30 min walk up and 20 min down). There is no view of the lake from the hostel windows but it does have magnificent views of the forested hill!
