For the equivalent of £35 you get a bed with breakfast and dinner included. Meals are hearty, very tasty and filling. The atmosphere in the communal areas are friendly. Tours and cooking courses are also offered. The only downside are the staff who run the reception. They are rude, miserable and give conflicting information. The other staff that work on... More

The place is quite well located in the Island. Quite a drive from the ferry terminal, but it is worth the drive. The houses are Russian Isba type of wooden houses. It is a typical backpackers hangout place. I loved the internationality of the place. We were two families traveling with a small kid and we were told that at... More

This is a very rustic but comfortable hotel really more like an old time lodge. My wife and I stayed there four days in late May so the tourist season had not yet ramped up but there still was an assortment of International backpackers coming through all the time. At that time of year it was very quiet and relaxing.... More

The winter was just over. The lake was still frozen but the homestead still give us the best services. Friendly staffs, the good cook and awesome excursion too, minus the cold weather still. We are the only 4 guess there and we enjoy ourselves (all of us met each other at the homestead).

Olkhon is very beautiful and Nikita's is an interesting place to stay. It is a compound of eclectic wooden buildings. Each room has a unique character. The staff are friendly and some absolutely lovely and very helpful It is also possible to arrange day trips all around the island. Unfortunately, the food served was a letdown. It was bland and...

We are three families from China and spent three desirable nights in Nikita's Homestead. Very few local people speaking English bring us difficulty to travel in Irkutsk city and Olkhon island by ourselves, but the managers in Nikita will solve all problems you have. They provide three meals per day which was included in the room fees, so you do... More

With their English speaking staff and professional website it's hard to avoid Nikita's when travelling to Olkhon although it might not be the best choice. There are a lot of tour groups so it lacks the individual atmosphere it may have had before. The staff doesn't bother too much to be friendly and the full board-meals are bold. But the... More
