10.0 Excellent
Pros: Where should I start? The best was Lucy taking care of us the whole time. She knows what you want even before you know it. Dinner was perfect, we ate there every evening. Breakfast was also really good. The room was quite comfy for 2 people, I loved how warm it gets inside especially when you come from outside. Everyone in this place is just lovely, thank you so much
Cons: Nothing, everything was just perfect

Pros: Good location, clean, enthusiastic staff service, rich breakfast. The decoration in the room is distinctive. We are very happy.
Cons: nothing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The food, breakfast and dinner was the best we have ever had in hotels. We are vegetarians and the chef, bless her soul, had cooked a wonderful vegetarian meal, when we first arrived late at night after a long road trip from Irkutsk. Then for all our 4 days there more of the same with new preparations. There are excellent paintings all around in the dining room and reception area. Dasha speaks excellent English and is an extremely gracious and friendly host. She arranged two wonderful day trips and a boat trip for us. Her staff is just superb. And what was really more than the expectations was that the cats are cuter than in the picture for the hotel. We would recommend this place for everyone. We plan to return one year during the time the artists are there.
Cons: There is really nothing we did not like, not much of a view from the window but we could walk in five minutes to beautiful sunsets and rainbow one day.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything is wonderful. The host is very nice and gives us a lot of help.
Cons: None.
7.5 Good
Pros: Large room, good location, very clean. Owners very attentive and helpful.
Cons: Room had no dimming curtains on windows. Just a light colored one on one window and a thin clear one on the other. Considering that in June the sun rises before 4am, the room was flooded with light very early. This was a bit irritating We were on holiday after all, we would have liked some extra sleep, and a curtain is cheap.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The setting of the guest house is nice and breakfast is very nice. The shower is small for the double room but the twin room is spacious with a sofa area. Would recommend to anyone who is travelling to Lake Baikal.
Cons: We wanted to book a room with 3 pax in 1 room and 2 in the other room but it wasn't shown in the website so we booked 2 twin rooms and 1 double room for 5 pax. In the end, we have 1 twin and 1 double room and 1 triple room.

9.1 Excellent (166 reviews)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: good location, delicious breakfast
7.5 Good
Pros: We still miss our first dinner there, there were two chicken legs per person. We also missed the pan cake and luckily, it serviced twice during our stay in the island. Besides, the room is all right, it locates next to the lake, like 10 mins walk. Then you can walk along till the end or even farther. The staff also helped us booked tickets to the north line and back to town. Made things easier for us.
Cons: The towel had not been changed since the very first day, the garbage was taken away once. There was a smell of the wood.
8.3 Excellent

9.3 Excellent
Pros: The room is clean & spacious, heater is very warm and the staffs are very friendly. It’s a hotel run by a family, they helped to arrange island excursion at RUB1,200 and also a private transfer for 5 of us back to Irkutsk at RUB10,000. Dinner is RUB500 per person, both breakfast and dinner are good.
9.5 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: everything is very nice. The host helped me to carry the big luggage upstairs.Moreover,he helped me to carry the luggage for500 meters to the Chinese restaurant to meet the bus to Irkutsk since there was a mistake when I booked with a chinese staff there. I should book the bus through him instead.Lots of thanks to him.
Cons: nothing
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great host. We took a long way to get there and kept the host waiting for a long time. He helped us booking the tour with fair price and the bus back to Irkutsk. Really helpful and save a lot of time. Nice breakfast provided and if you missed the time the lady will save it for you. The heat is very powerful.
Cons: The house is built by wood, inevitably the thin wall can’t keep out all the noise. But it’s totally bearable. Another note is the water is everywhere during the shower, maybe it should use glass to keep out the water.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner Natalya is amazing. She is very friendly and helped me with everything I needed. The house is very clean, the area is beautiful. This place is for someone who is looking for serenity and peace. If I come back to Khuzhir, I will definitely stay in this place.
Cons: Nothing
6.8 Good
Pros: Amazing view, very calm. The host is nice and organises pick ups for excursion and van to irkoutsk
Cons: It is 30-35 minutes away from the center of Khoujir, walking fast. And the host doesn’t provide breakfast or any kind of food. There’s only one pan to heat up soup, you can’t do much cooking and if you want to go to the restaurant it’s 35 min walk... plus there is no shower and the toilets are 30 meters outside of the room so good luck if you want to pee during the night. I’m q bit torn about this place. If you’re an adventurer and only want the beautiful view and don’t mind eating soup and not taking shower for a few days, this place is definitely for you. But if you want basic confort, choose another hostel in Khoudjir.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great view, quiet, in the nature, very nice host. Lovely and clean facilities. Just wonderful and cosy. I also stayed at a place in Khuzir. But I would really recommend everyone to choose a place like this outside the city and dust! Big time value for money!

Cons: Please give me breakfast to experience russia culture:)
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The location. So relaxing and near the Baikal Lake
Cons: Didn’t mention share bedroom
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view is majestic, though it takes some 30 to 50 minutes from the city centre of Khuzhir (depending on your speed), it is totally worthwhile. Just rent a bike and you will have another kind of experience travelling between the hostel and Khuzhir. A recommended route is via the forest (but only when it is sunny and in the daytime for safety reason). The host Natalia is nice, she will arrange everything essential for you even if you do not ask her (e.g. the tours in the island and the bus back to Irkutsk). A bath costs 100 Rub per person per night (at the time I stayed there). It’s a very quite place, especially ideal for those who are looking for a transient out of reach from the outer world.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Quiet location, excellent view of the lake, owners are amazing and so kind/helpful :)
Cons: A bit far from town, approx 40mins walking
9.5 Excellent

All staff don't speak English but you can communicate with them using Google translate is fine. Staff are all helpful and nice. You can order dinner and lunch but need to be in advance particular for lunch. Dinner is relatively expensive and you can have more opportunities in the town centre for that price. However, as we arrived quite late we didn't mind to pay for dinner there on our arrival. They have a sauna room but we didn't try and not sure if it's available for summer.

3.0 Mediocre
Pros: The breakfast is fine.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I decided to stay in Olkhon Island for 1 more day and join a south tour of Baikal so late that I expected the worst case that I need to go back to Irkutsk. The owner was so nice that she immediately helped me arrange the tour and the room, with a discounted price. I realised in the last day that I was the last traveller in the house and the owner needed to go back to Irkutsk. She could have left Olkhon instead of letting me staying for 1 more day. They also provided a healthy large-sized breakfast for me, as well as for my friends who stayed at another hostel. The price of the breakfast my friends paid was very cheap relatively to their own hostel and other hotels nearby.

Pros: Garden is so beautiful, everything there is clean and convenient. Totally exceeded my expectation with fine dinner and hospitable host.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The accommodation was very pleasant, a log cabin in a garden of flowers. Everything was spotlessly clean. There was a heater in the room. The food that the owner prepared was tasty, breakfast was sumptuous and I took part away for lunch.
Cons: There was a problem with the shower not draining, but I think someone cleared it on the last day
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Neither Natasha or her husband speak English but they get somebody who does speak to talk to me. The breakfast & dinner are delicious & of large portion. I even packed them for lunch & supper
Cons: If there's anything to say is that the toilets are outside where you have to walk in the cold to reach it. But, whatever 'likes' I've mentioned above outweigh this little discomfort.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: This is a small privately owned site within a fancied backyard short walk from the main street and the lake (about 20 min). It is quiet and very clean place with excellent host who helps with any question and excursion booking. My room had some problems with a gap when the door was closed (it was already cold so the room was heated) and they moved me to another room. The shower/toilet is very clean and with hot water at any time. I had breakfast and diner included in the price and the portions were very generous (home cooked meals) even though I was the only guest for a day or two. It was excellent value for money and I would recommend and use it again.
Cons: Nothing, the place is as described.

4.3 Okay
Pros: Somewhat ok location. Breakfast and dinner were included
Cons: One bathroom (one men one women) outside in a separate cabin, shared among all guests. It can get busy in the morning. Felt more like a camp site. The room we stayed in has strong paint smell, and the bed liners were a joke. Probably made out of sandbag material. Food were just ok. I am quite surprised this place got a such high rating. I’d give it a 7.0 at most.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: They are kindly and nice
3.8 Mediocre

Cons: N/A
7.5 Good
Pros: Warm breakfast and great pancake
Cons: Need to upgrade facilities which I am sure the owner is planning to do.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Staff was friendly
Cons: Room was not clean. I think owners captured an opportunity to make money from their house, hovewer didn’t make enough effort create comfortable environment by at least cleaning rooms properly. In our room we found some stuff under beds (contraceptive pills, body lotion, stones), a couple of small spiders and the most horrible experience was cockroach. It was quite a restless night. On top of this, bed Sheets looked unwashed as I found a lot of small trash falling from my bed sheets when taking of a bed cover. In addition to this, we have asked to cook us a dinner at the property. Instead of 400RUB, the owners asked to pay 500RUB. I have noticed afterwards from a reservation and asked to return extra money I paid. Food dishes were small and hardly had any meat. I would strongly advice to owners to improve customer service and clean properly the rooms.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly owners, everything you need is in the room, boiling water available in the dining room. Gostinica helps in organizing trips if one wants to. Close to the center of Хужир and lakeside. We recommend the place.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The people who work there are very nice and welcoming. The breakfast is full of good stuff and pancakes are excellent! Beds are comfortable and wood rooms are cozy. Nice smell of resin when you enter in the house :)
Cons: Our room was a bit noisy when people walked upstairs. There were no lights but for a bulb light over the entrance door. The toilet was not very clean at the arrival and the shower drain didn’t work.. I don’t know if it is a problem of the island.
7.5 Good
Pros: The location is good and the room is fine for stay.
Cons: 1) It is my first time to Russia, to play safe, have confirmed with the hostel owner for the airport pick up service at least 2 weeks before start the trip. But when reconfirm the transportation arrangement 2 days before I arrived, there was no respond received (have communicated with them in Russian). When arrived to the IKT airport, I found that nobody to pick me up. Finally, I asked for the help of the immigration staff to call the hostel if they had arranged any car for me. And obviously, they did not. Even they told the immigration staff a car plate that will drive me to their hostel, the number provided was wrong, and I checked with the shuttle drivers in the car park, they had no record for me and even did not receive any call from the hostel. 2) Have confirmed with hostel that they can help to prepare for the meals during my stay, but for the first day arrived, they told me that only breakfast to provide, and no offer for lunch and dinner. For the first day, as I arrived late, could not find anything to eat as the restaurants were even to close. But for the last day, when the other visitors asked for the meal service, it suddenly can offer. 3) For the 2nd day, I had joined the day tour, when I back to hostel, I found a spare key on my room door and my room was opened. And they even did not aware that it is a problem. Even the hostel owners are friendly, but it is hoped to have some improvement.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Location was great, very close to everything. The staff were friendly and one spoke excellent English so was able to book us an excursion to the north of the island. The breakfasts were tasty and plentiful, although as there was only one time (rather than a range) for breakfast it did get busy as everyone arrived at once and tried to get food. We stayed in a private double room, which was a good size and the bathroom had a shower with its own hot water heater.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Good value for money. Friendly and helpful staff, filling breakfast. On the last day we were leaving 2 hours before the normal breakfast time, but were still served with food. Wooden houses smelled nicely. Three cats on the territory. The location is very central, close to shops and cafes, and to Shamanka rock. Definitely recommend, especially for backpackers :)
Cons: Stream in the shower was weak, same as everywhere in Olkhon. The walls are not very sound proof, but for us it was not an issue.
4.3 Okay
Pros: Nothing, For Europeans insufficient. Beautiful surroundings.
Cons: Sleeping like a dog shed, toilets and a shower across the courtyard ... And very expensive!

Pros: Location is good. The staff are nice.
Cons: Sometimes the electricity cut off suddenly. But it was fixed quickly.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Staff: Only one who speaks English, but she doesn't work 24 hours. Facilities: Has everything as stated. Need to walk outside to get to the toilet/bathroom (not big deal for me). Cleanliness/Comfort: Perfect! Value for money: Although not real cheap, but consider acceptable on Baikal. Location: 20min walk to Shaman Rock, there are 2 marts very near to the hostel. **Breakfast is the same everyday.
Cons: WiFi only in common area.
5.5 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was nice.
Cons: They promise one thing and the reality is not exactly what expected: prices and details of excursions, bathroom facilities, tranfert to Irkutsk... For exemple, they told us to be ready at 9.30 in order to be picked up for an excursion, and the guides were there at 9 am and were very rude telling us we hadn't time to finish breakfast, to hurry up and that they wouldn't wait for us more than 5 minutes (no sorrys, no misunderstandings, no excuses...). Another exemple, the day we quit the hotel, they told us that the bus would leave us at our hotel in Irkutsk, but the driver refused to do so and when we called the guest house, they hang up the phone as we were explaining the situation and never called us back. And bonus, the normal ticket for the bus is 1000 rubles and we paid at the guest house 1200 to be driven to our hotel.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: However, the place was cozy and the family was sweet. Friendly dogs. There is one staff who can speak English, which is quite helpful. I also enjoyed their breakfast and dinner. Good wifi. Reasonable price. I would recommend it!
Cons: The bathroom was literally outside of the room. Maybe it will be quite tough to stay during the freezing cold in winter of the island. Cause you might need a thick jacket whenever you want to use the bathroom. ( I stayed here in April and it wasn't bad.)
6.8 Good
Cons: there is no toilet in room, and just 1 shared toilet and bath room in the whole guesthouse area, not enough.
6.8 Good
Pros: The room and toilet are clean. The staff is nice. There is a small supermarket next to the hotel. I like the dogs in the hotel a lot.
Cons: I joined both "South Trip" and "North Trip" arranged by the hotel. There is nothing wrong in the "North Trip". But it is very likely that the driver of the "South Trip" skipped several interesting points and the trip was ended at 3pm (others joined the same trip organized by this hotel and the trip was ended at 5pm). I told the hotel staff about that and the staff suggested me to join a sunset trip for the missed points at my own cost...... I hope that it is not their usual practice. Or I misunderstand their offer since I don't speak Russian. The dinner offered by the hotel is not attractive. There are at least 2 restaurants in 5-10min walking distance offer much better food. The breakfast is not attractive but there is no alternative in the surrounding.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The guesthouse was lovely with clean rooms and really nice staff, helping us organize the bus transfer to the island etc. The dogs were also super friendly and awesome!
8.8 Excellent

Pros: It's in Khuzhir but right by the beaches and rocks. Tania is very friendly, she speaks little English but can always answer questions, even via WhatsApp. They have a barbecue you can use and can arrange what felt like a very local banya experience with a neighbour. The room was clean and comfy, shower is also very good.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Don’t be put off by the first impression of the facility. The family is really friendly and welcoming. Rooms and washing facilities are very basic but clean and you get a great bargain for your money. Definitely staying there again to explore the beautiful baikal region.
4.3 Okay
Pros: There was a heater in the room and lots of extra blankets. The host was very friendly and did her best to communicate with us even though we spoke no Russian. She helped to organise a bus trip to the north of the island. Advice for the trip... Bring plenty of cash. There is a fee to register with the police.
Cons: While the owner of the property was very friendly, it felt like we were intruding on the rest of the family who all lived within the compound. Although there was a table outside our room, it was used by the residents who often played loud music until late at night. The toilet and shower are both outdoors and there is no plumbing although this is quite common on the island. The price was on par with many of the other home stays on the island but certainly did not have a welcoming reception one might expect.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was a pleasure to spend few days in this wooden house. What is important, it was very warm inside, because there's a heater. Simple room but very comfortable and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful! They organised a trip for us (I recommend buying it because you can see the most beautiful places on the island and then eat traditional fish soup in the forest). A bathroom and toilet were clean. There's always hot water in the shower. I recommend this place for families or friends.

Cons: Everything was fine.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The rooms in the guesthouse are neat, kitchen is fully equipped and is ok for simple cooking. It’s located outside, just as one toilet and the shower, there’s also place to sit outside to eat. The shower was great, we didn’t expect it so good on the island - hot water and good water pressure :) It’s a good place to explore Khuzhir by foot, but also the island, as there are many excursion offices in Khuzhir and also the national park office.
Cons: There‘s just a microwave/stove combination in the kitchen, which was ok to make breakfast, but isn’t really suitable for real cooking. But there are enough cafes in town.

Pros: Helpful boss lady helped us arrange bus and excursions on Olkhon island. Clean and neat environment.
Cons: I was little bit unlucky to visit the hostel when the bathroom was broken at that time. During my 3 night stay, I had one bucket shower with hot water. This was quite unexpected. The boss lady was helpful and I could finally have one proper shower. The bathroom and toilet was outside the house, hope it doesn't get too cold in winter....
