I didn’t stay in this hostel bus still I think they deserve 5 starts. I needed help to get a boat and Alexey helped me when nobody did. Thank you you were great and I hope to visit soon when I come back to Baikal
The place is very peaceful. But be prepared for the rustic beds, it is a wooden board. But there are hot showers and it is pretty clean. The kitchen is pretty basic, don't expect any free coffee or tea. And there is no space to hang out with the other travelers. Overall it is good place to stay but the price is high for the quality of the stay. The tenant is nice and speak a quit good English, and she can prepare the breakfast.
We stayed here for one night. Alexsy gave us a very warm welcome and a choice of three rooms as we were the first of the guests to arrive that evening. We chose a room in an old house it was basic with hard beds but cosy as there are some lovely touches to the room with lamps and photographs. The bathrooms are shared, ours was very clean and there was hot water for well needed showers. The kitchen is compact but everything you needed was there. Alexsy is chatty and interesting to talk to, he has travelled a lot. Everyone we met staying here was very friendly. It's a real break away from everything, very quiet and peaceful.
Great hostel in a great location. Be prepared for very basic facilities - hard wooden beds, limited cooking facilities, outdoor bathroom, but worth it for the location. Dorms are actually twin rooms, but limited security. The hike back to Listvyanka from here is lovely. The route is easy to follow, tricky in places with fallen trees blocking the path and steep drops, but the views are lovely. Mile 8 to 9 is steeply up hill and then the lady 3 miles are downhill.
This is the perfect place to come and relax, enjoy some beautiful scenery and peace and quiet. We walked here from Listvyanka and snapped up the offer of dinner when we arrived. If you are offered food here, take it! It's tasty and fresh. Some of the best food of our trip so far.
