The hostel staff were exceedingly gracious hosts. They arranged all of our excursions for the duration of our stay. When my companion needed new boots but could not find any for sale in the town, the staff loaned her a pair and allowed her to keep them on the way out. They arranged all of our transportation for us. The... More

the hostel is nice, it is all wooden made which is very charming. The owners are nice and helpful. The rooms are ok. The fact there is no wifi makes you speak with other people which eventually turned out better than if we all had been on our devices. It is just a bit far from the city center, but... More

We stayed here in summer time and had emailed the owner if we could use the camping option, he said yes. When we arrived however the lady manager didnt allow us since there was a draught so we had to stay on the more expensive dorm. Then she kept complaining about everything, we where not allowed to do some small... More

This Eco Hostel is situated in beautiful sourroundings in a very nice wooden house, but unfortunately our expectations were not met. We thought we had gotten a reduction because it was out of season. When we came there, it was empty, just the lady that manages the house. After many questions she admitted that the reason for so little guests... More

I stayed in this hostel in Mar 2013. At the time I was there, the hostel looks very good on all the natural wooden decoration and the lady staff there was very helpful, especially about my booking of dog sledding and snowmobiling (It was very easy to control even I had no driving experience at all). Also, bicycles with snow... More

Very comfortable place, with shared kitchen (which was very important for me and my familly) with free tea, coffee and pasta!, wodden everything, cable tv, good organisation for Olchon Island. The Baikaler was quite far from the main street but was placed also in very quite, natural enviroment. Staff was speaking English fluently so it was also helpfull.

The hostel is beautiful. We stayed at a cozy and clean twin room with a nice view of the woods. The staff lady spoke good english and was helpful. The only disadvantage was the location, since we had to walk for 15-20 min to get there (from Baikal shore).

We were a family of five (including a 3.5-year old) doing a Trans-Siberian train journey and this was our activity day around Lake Baikal. We've hired out Jack the owner and his trusty van for a day-long sightseeing trip to the local nature and culture spots. It's a lot more fun with the local guide! ;-) And Jack is as... More

I stayed for one night in June and had a wonderful time. I also booked a tour with Jack who owns the Hostel and two wonderful British travellers tagged along at the last minute. The hostel is out of the way of the main part of Listvyanka and will take a 15 minute walk there, but the peace and quiet... More

The Eco lodge is very good. Everything is there. Great location away from the crowd so it's very quiet. The quality of accommodation is great. It's a great place to explore baikal from. We booked a transfer with Jack from his other place in Irkutsk. Very handy and cheap.
