I'm glad to have chosen this hotel for my trip in Lake Baikal. All staff warmly welcomed us and were always ready to help. I loved the cosy design of the whole area as it is very typical traditional Russian style. The homestead is located by the lake shore so you can have a nice walk and enjoy the wonderful... More

The island was beautiful tho it was onlyby chance that I saw other parts. It was a last minute decision to go to this island so I did not have a map. As the most popular place listed i was surprised when the girl checking me in said they havent printed any yet, theyre waiting for the tourist season. (I... More

I stayed at Nikita's Homestead for four nights and enjoyed the experience. The location was great..just a stone's throw away from Shaman's Rock...and the rooms were comfortable with hot water in the shower and heating. Just 2 criticisms: the heating was actually excessive throughout the complex....I had to pull the plugs out in my room to try to cool down;... More

I started planning for the stay at this hotel in March and contacted them to book the room + the minivan from Irkutsk-Khujhir. I was asked to pre-pay 150 RUB which I did thru Paypal. So far so good. On the day of travel, I found out that others, who had booked the minivan just the previous day, were paying... More

We absolutely loved the charm and homely warmth of Nikita's. We stayed in a cabin style room for two nights and, when stranded on Olkhon due to bad weather, we were offered a larger room at discount price. Staff were friendly, the food was hearty and tasty and showers very good. We were sad to leave and would happily travel... More

I heard that one has to book this place a month in advance because the people with whom we were on the minibus to Olkhon could not get a room upon arrival as they did not reserved a room with Nikita. Our room was located in the same building as the canteen, so it was convenient for us to reach... More

Nikita's Homestead is a very popular place, particularly with people doing the Trans-Siberian/Trans-Mongolian train journeys. It is very quirky, with lots of ethnic type decorations and oddly shaped buildings. It is divided into 2 sites; the old and the new. We were in the new section of the homestead, which was very nice. However, it meant we were not able... More

Best place in town, therefore a bit expensive but meals are included. Not high-season yet, so quiet in the whole town but yet a lot to see and do. They arrange tours as well, friendly owner and staff. We had a free upgrade, as the rooms with lakeview were under construction.

It is nice and beautiful place with nice and friendly staff. Best place to go in Olkhon. Nice trips all around the island can be booked and it is very cheap. Remember that swimming in the lake gives you 5years more ;)

I took the Nikita's Homestead because I canceled my booking with another hostel which did not serve me properly. My comments to this homestead was middle of the road given that service in Russia was generally not client-oriented. As a whole, the homestead was in fact not bad given that it is in Olkhan Island. Although the room rate was... More
