Nice hostel and location, the manager speaks about 5 languages! We decided to spend our time here on Olkhon Island rather than in the city, and organised the minibus and accommodation through this hostel, which was really good actually. 3 meals a day provided, hot showers etc. I would recommend this over Nikita's as you get homemade Russian food from Olga, and in the evenings you can pop over to Nikita's and go to the bar etc there.
Directions to the hostel could be improved considerably as it is not entirely clear exactly where the building the hostel is in is, and it's quite a small hostel without a lot of space in the common area, which doubles as a kitchen. The staff are nice, although only one guy speaks good English there, and one girl also speaks some English. Also not a huge amount to do in the city.
Had an amazing stay at this hostel, the staff are amazing and so friendly and helpful! The location is amazing, a 10 minute walk from the Kremlin and 5 minutes from a supermarket, the facilities are great, especially the kitchen and the people are amazing!
