We offer comfortable accommodation in 2, 3, 6, 8 or 10 bedded rooms. A toilet and shower are in a room or conveniently located outside rooms on each floor. All rooms have most comfortable double-deck beds with a 90 / 200 size mattress. We also have one room with a double bed.
In February – March 2008 all “PILAU” premises have been fully refurbished. All rooms have been equipped with new double-glazed windows and anti-mosquitoes netting.
In spite of the fact that some rooms have their toilets outside, on each floor, nobody experience discomfort about that, because we have 7 showers, 8 toilets and 12 washbasins, all brand new, for just 54 people staying with us.
Everyone in a room gets their own personal reading light, so you can read without disturbing or being disturbed by other residents.
“PILAU” Hostel is designed for both Russian and foreign tourists, travelling individually or in groups. Registration is available for all our visitors in officially prescribed manner.
