Where to stay in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk

While the selection of accommodations may be somewhat limited in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, the city's hotels and guesthouses are known for providing excellent service and plenty of amenities. This is especially true for the high-end hotels, many of which offer gyms, spas, and indoor and outdoor swimming pools. The smaller pensions, by contrast, give you a more intimate sense of local hospitality. The city doesn't have too many hostels, so if you're traveling on a tighter budget, be sure to make reservations ahead of time.

  • Great ski resort very close to the center of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk town. However, English speaking services, just like in the rest of Russia, are lacking. There is a Russian cafe on the top station selling typical Russian snacks and drinks (no English menu or English-speaking staff).
  • Best place for skiing...
  • Got a chance to overlook a stunning view from the cable car window. Definitely worth of riding.
  • Billions on weather. No snow. One track is working and that all the hillocks. Lifting cost 300 ₽. Service no. Horseradish I drove here from Moscow.
