Lonely Planet review

Previously known as Baikaler Eco-Hostel, this purpose-built hostel located at the far end of ul Chapaeva provides top-notch digs for backpacker prices, leaving Listvyanka’s other flat-footed accommodation in its green wake. From the energy-saving light bulbs and basalt-foam insulation to the solar-heated water and solar-generated electricity, owner Jack Sheremetoff has crafted a low-impact haven with lots of personal touches.

Start the day with a bit of sun worship on the yoga deck and breakfast on the forest-facing chill-out area; end it with a scramble up the mini climbing wall and a scrub-down in the banya before snuggling up in a hand-made timber bed (no bunks) in an ensuite dorm. Two guest kitchens, 24-hour reception and many other features you won’t find anywhere else. Booking well ahead is essential. No wi-fi.

Description provided by property

Belka hostel (Lonely Planet Recommended!) is located in the village of Listvyanka, near Lake Baikal. Built from wood, a well-insulated and energy-efficient material, the place is carefully imbedded into the environment.

The main house has four guest rooms with shared facilities: three twins and one dorm for four people. There are two toilets and one shower. Our fully-equipped kitchen is for common use. Each twin room has LCD TV and multimedia players; there is also a common library for all of our guests.

The other solar house has one dormitory room for eight people plus a single room. There are three toilets and one solar shower, a fully-equipped kitchen, a common room with a big-screen TV and a free library of music, films, and photos.

We also have a wonderful Russian banya (sauna) to soothe and relax weary travellers. It is 400R per person per hour, 700R for 2, 1000R for 3 and 1200R for 4 at a time.

Our English-speaking staff is here to help, just ask!
