Bedbuggs, leaking taps, unpolite staff. Do not enter! Sauna was ok, like real Finnish sauna. Location was quite ok. You can walk there from the LAST busstop. I really can not understand the water leaking to the floors...exspecially in wooden buildings. There's gonna be big problems soon...

Taps was leaking and water was all over in toilet and bathroom floor, I'm afraight that in couple of... More

The wooden place looks fine, 15 min walk from the shore, but the staff was not friendly nor helpful. The dormitory is ok, but the door of the toilets was broken. There is only one shower. The kitchen is nice. We had a misunderstanding about the reservation and had to stay in the dorm instead of a bedroom. Things like... More

We ended up here by accident. When the owner's hostel in Irkutsk was full he suggested we come here and we are glad we did! They gave us a private room usually reserved for the manager, but since the position was vacant they gave us the option for the same price as the dorm. The next day the owner was... More

I came to Irkutsk on the Train-Siberian Railway. I booked a two days stopover at a homestay on Olkhon Island in order to see Baikal Lake. Our trip to Irkutsk was long, weary and late. So I cancelled the trip to Olkhon Island but went to Listvyanka and stayed at Bailaler Eco Hostel. I followed the instructions given by the... More

After hearing only good things I decided to stay here and was bitterly disappointed. The staff were unhelpful and uninterested, and often not available. The building itself and the location are perfect but they aren't kept well, the toilet in the dorm wasnt cleaned once while I was there (3days). The climbing wall was so small as to be non-existant... More

Very helpful staff, cheapest and best accommodation for backpackers in Lastvianka. They have a Banya (russian sauna) clean kitchen and lovely clean rooms. It's about 15 minutes walking uphill from the shore, but the peaceful location is worth the hike! Friendly and fun atmosphere, you can rent bikes from them and they can organise different tours and activities for you.... More

I stayed at the Baikaler Eco Hostel the nights of June 8 & 9, 2013. I made the reservation for the Baikaler Eco at the Baikaler Hostel located in Irkutsk, which was clean as a whistle and staffed by a hospitable, English speaking young lady. Inspecting the Baikaler in Irkutsk gave me confidence that the Baikaler Eco Hostel in Listvyanka... More

OK hostel! Quite a long walk from the shore line of Bajkal, be prepared not to walk to and from the hostel too many times per day. Nice touch with the wooden buildings, a bit irritating that you can't smoke anywhere on the premises. Small, basic rooms, no wifi.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Baikaler Eco-Hostel welcomes you to stay in a cozy wooden house, located in the village Listvyanka. Built from wood, well insulated and energy efficient, the place is carefully imbedded into the environment. The eco-hostel maintains healthy atmosphere and sets new standards for comfort, security and design. We offer a wide range of activities. The house has 4 guest rooms with shared facilities: 3 twins and 1 dorm for 4 people. There are 2 toilets and 1 shower. Fully equipped kitchen is for common use. Each twin room has LCD TV and multimedia players. There is also a common library for guests. An English speaking staff is there to help. Another solar house has 1 dormitory room for 8 people + a single room. There are 3 toilets and 1 solar shower, fully equipped kitchen, common room with large screen + DVDs. There is also a wonderful Russian Banya (Sauna). Baikaler eco-hostel is located almost at the end of the street, near the forest. Don’t be turned off by the fact that it is ‘far’. It is just away from the mass tourism. The distance from the lake Baikal to the hostel is 1200m (25-30 min walk up and 20 min down). There is no view of the lake from the hostel windows (it has magnificent view of the forested hill though) ... more   less
