In the heart of Academgorodok, Novosibirsk.
The room will be perfect for short-term visits (for a conference or iternational event). We are very close to Novosibirsk State University, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, public transport (a 5 min walk). Technopark is 30 mins away if you walk, 20 mins by marshrutka (a taxi bus, runs every 10 minutes).

The space

We are a married couple and would love to host one or maximum two international guests or Russian people who are able to read this text. Short-term stays (1-2 nights) planned in advance (a few days or a week prior to your visit) are preferable due to our workload. The apt has only one bedroom (where the guests will stay) and one shared living room (where the hosts will sleep).

Guest access

Just because this is a real apt, where hosts actually live, you will have to share the living room, kitchen and bathroom areas with us. Hosts and guests may have different schedules and it's no problem for us.
We are renting out our own bedroom for 18$ per night. If you are comfortable with a couch in the living room, we will send you a special offer for 15$ per night. From time to time we travel or host our relatives and close friends, so not all days might be available.

Interaction with guests

We will meet you upon arrival and give you one set of keys. Your room does not have its own lock, in case it's important.

Other things to note

It would be great if you could briefly describe the purpose of your visit in a request message for the room. Thank you!
We have no pets. If you would like to bring your pet with you, please let us know in advance and we will see what we can do :)

Was at Akademgorodok, Novosibirsk for a birthday celebration. Got lucky to find a place close to the event and share it in the company of a young couple, Maria & Sergei. The place is very tidy and clean. Had a super early arrival with a night plane and guys were flexible to allow an early check in. Was also coming back around midnight after celebrations and this has not been an issue. Got sum nice Jazz music during one of the mornings and this was nice. Maria and Sergei are representatives of well educated generation of young Russian people, curious for life outside their home town and home country. Having their classmates spread around different cities. Getting introduced into their world has been a very big bonus. Loved my stay. Thank you guys!

Our visit was perfect. Maria met us like well-known friends and helped with our questions such as: where to buy smth, which place is better for lunch or how to reach necessary destination, and many many other various questions. Thereby, our first acquaintance with Academgorodok and Novosibirsk was easy and unconstrained. Accommodation located in the very convenient place, so any points of Academgorodok are rapid available. Maria and Sergei are very interesting opponents and they are always open for conversation, even thought they are busy. Room was small but surprisingly comfortable and really cozy, as well as whole apartments. This host highly recommended for those who want to see Akademgorodok in all its glory and get great pleasure from the trip. Визит превзошел все ожидания. Нас сразу же встретили словно давно знакомых друзей и охотно помогли с решением вопросов: где что можно купить, куда сходить пообедать, как добраться до нужной части города, и многих других, самых разнообразных. Благодаря этому первое знакомство с Академгородком и Новосибирском было легким и непринужденным. Также этому благоприятствовало и удобное местоположение, откуда можно быстро добраться в любую точку Академгородка. Мария и Сергей очень интересные собеседники, и всегда открыты к разговору, даже если заняты каким-либо делом. Комната, в которой мы жили, оказалась комфортной, несмотря на скромные размеры. И очень уютной, как и квартира вцелом. Всем, кто хочет увидить Академгородок во всей его красе и получить такое же удовольствие от поездки, как мы с женой, рекомендую выбирать именно этот вариант.

Maria and Sergei were excellent hosts. Maria give me a quick walking tour of Akademgorodok as soon as I arrived, gave me a detailed map of the area and then let me explore on my own. Had long, interesting conversations with Sergei about anything and everything. They are both very insightful and easy to talk to and have excellent English. They even fed me fresh homemade Russian jams and pancakes Maria had gotten from her parents house. I stayed in their bedroom for 2 days while they slept in the living room but it still felt very private and comfortable. On the first morning when I was very jet lagged they let me sleep in as long as I needed and I didn't hear a thing. Their appartement is not very big but it had all the necessary amenities for a short stay. It's centrally located near NSU, public transit and a 20 min walk from the beach on the Ob sea. The best part however was not the accommodation but the hosts. They were so helpful every step of the way for someone with limited time, lots of questions and little knowledge of Russian. They went above and beyond to make me feel welcome. Really enjoyed my time with them and I'd gladly welcome them in my own home if they ever visited my part of the world.

Приехала в Новосибирский Академгородок поступать на второе высшее. Через airbnb нашла квартиру (комнату) Машу и Сергея :) Говорю ребятам огромное спасибо за тёплый приём и точность во всем :) Я была в Новосибирске ровно десять лет назад, была чуток самоуверенна в себе, да и за плечами много путешествий, вроде точно не потеряюсь, но... Академгородок очень изменился, поэтому ребята очень помогли с навигацией и информацией :) Квартира у них очень миленькая :) Чистая, современная, молодежная :))) Ставлю по всем критериям пять+!!! :))))

Это был мой первый опыт с Airbnb и я ничуть не пожалел! Отличные гостеприимные хозяева, встретили сразу по дружески! Уютная квартира, есть все необходимые удобства. Удобное расположение, в шаговой доступности множество различных кафе, ресторанов, парков и конечно НГУ. В общем остались только положительные эмоции! Всем рекомендую!

Well, there is something I can tell you. I am a linguist and a teacher of English and Russian. I am passionate about it! I worked in Davidson College, NC for a year as a Fulbrighter. Now I work at my home university back in Russia.
I live and travel with my husband Sergei. Well, if you have any questions, just write a message.
Maybe the last thing to mention - I am a more quiet person than a crazy one.
