Directions to BELKA HOSTEL (LISTVYANKA) from the TRAIN STATION | AIRPORT | BUS TERMINAL BAIKALER HOSTEL | BALALAIKA HOSTEL

Belka Hostel is NOT located in Irkutsk! It is in Listvyanka, a lakeside village 70 km away. It is well connected by public minibuses departing hourly (120 Rub to be paid to the driver), from 8 am till 7 PM) from the Central Market. At the Bus Terminal you can take a public bus (60 Rub, tickets to be bought at the Bust Terminal,  9.30 AM, 2.20PM, 4.30 PM and 6.30 PM) as well as public minibuses departing hourly (120 Rub to be paid to the driver), from 8 am till 7 PM)

Another way is to take a public boat from the Pier Raketa . I’d recommend to do it other way around as it is less complicated. A ticket price is 380 Rub one way.
