Opting for budget accommodation is a sure way to squeeze in an extra museum, another dessert or one more drink into your day. If you’re visiting Yekaterinburg, don’t forget to check out these cheap sleeps before you go.
One of the best hostels in Yekaterinburg, Sky Hostel is cheap, friendly, clean and quirky. Rooms are decorated in international kitsch – American flags, Russian matryoshka dolls and a stencil of Big Ben next to the Union Jack – giving this hostel an international kick to it. Well-connected to the stadium and the Fan Fest zone by public transport (you could even walk to the stadium if you feel like a good walk), it is central and close to much of the action.

Jazzy Central Studio
A cute little studio flat that can sleep up to three people. Bright and sparkly, the flat is also central, so is a good option for those who are on a city break. Close to the Press House, one of the best spots in town to catch a gig or check out the city ponds, and right by the Church upon the Blood, the flat is so good it is run by a super host, and has a jacuzzi.
Just around the corner from Lenin Avenue, Emerald Hotel offers all the convenience of its neighbour, Double Tree but with a smaller price tag. It may not come with all the frills of a more expensive hotel, nevertheless rooms are clean and functional, and they also have single rooms for the solo traveller. Walk to the stadium, catch a bus to explore further out, or begin to explore the city centre with this ideally located hotel.

Near the Stadium
Central yet quiet, this comfortable studio apartment can fit up to four people. It is close to the central stadium, so if you’re in town to catch an arena Russia 2018 game, this spacious flat would be a good option. Close to a metro station, supermarkets and a handful of cafes, it’s an easy walk into the city centre to check out the restaurants along Lenin Avenue, the museums, and the Iset river Embankment.
On the other side of Lenin Avenue, Do Be Do Hotel offers cheerful rooms for those on a budget, with friendly, helpful staff. It is close to the central sights like the city ponds, and Church Upon the Blood, as well as bars like Amy Wine House and Loft, housed in the iconic Printing House.

Bright and Homely
This simple, one-bedroom flat can sleep up to four people, and has everything you need to make yourself at home. The cosy apartment is central, and coffee, food and entertainment, as well as the central sights, are all on your door step. The metro station is so close, it’s only about a 10-minute walk and it is as short stroll to the city’s pedestrian thoroughfare.
Though this budget hotel’s location is arguably its major draw, it also has simple rooms that are clean and crisp. With only eight rooms, the hotel is small – however, staff will help with tour bookings and onwards travel. Centrally located, guests are close to coffee shops, art galleries, and the Iset River Embankment and Lenin Avenue, where much of the city action happens.
No frills, but with a price tag to match, Art Hostel Green Grove is a good budget option, especially if you want to stay somewhere with personality. Bright, colourful rooms, with astro-turf lampshades, make this hostel a unique experience. With only six rooms and a communal area with a basic kitchen set-up, it is a good place to meet other travellers. There is another Art Hostel on Bankovsky Lane.
