Very good and rich breakfast. Two separate rooms are connected via open spaces in the walls, apparently meant for hot air circulation in winter as there are no radiators. This is a disadvantage because the rooms are connected and you can hear everything. Shared WC and bathroom. There is 1 room that is completely separate. Beds are OK but primitive. Olga's family is a bit weird, stares at you without greeting. Having your laundry washed is expensive.
Superb. Olga is an extremely welcoming and hospitable host with a comfortable, immaculate house on the edge of the village. Immediately upon arrival we were presented with tea and a warm welcome, and nothing felt like too much trouble. Lovely breakfast too, and Olga's English speaking is spot on. Well recommended.
Nice homestay. An error had been made with our reservation but they found a solution and gave us a reduction. The atmosphere is nice and the breakfast (which is mandatory, Olga wakes you up anyway :) ) also. I recommend.
Olga has enough English to help you. My Russian is bad. You are in her home. walking distance to village and lakeside for swim in lake baikal
Olga's breakfasts were amazing. She's very friendly despite her lack of English and wants you to eat! Haha
Olga is a very nice person, we felt very welcomed at her house. We stayed in a typical Russian room with comfy beds. Breakfast was very good and a lot. Facilities were clean. For those who wonder, it's normal in Russia to throw the toilet paper in the rubbish bin next to it. Nothing grows, just the way it works. We cant highly recommend this hostel.
