    The only kitchen is used by the hostel staff, but in front of its hostel there are some little houses for monthly or weekly rent and include your own kitchen and living room. You can ask about it to Izchaylumas staff.

    I agree. There is a similar eco lodge at the other end of town if Izh is full.
