The place is very peaceful. But be prepared for the rustic beds, it is a wooden board. But there are hot showers and it is pretty clean. The kitchen is pretty basic, don't expect any free coffee or tea. And there is no space to hang out with the other travelers. Overall it is good place to stay but the...

We stayed here for one night. Alexsy gave us a very warm welcome and a choice of three rooms as we were the first of the guests to arrive that evening. We chose a room in an old house it was basic with hard beds but cosy as there are some lovely touches to the room with lamps and photographs....

Great hostel in a great location. Be prepared for very basic facilities - hard wooden beds, limited cooking facilities, outdoor bathroom, but worth it for the location. Dorms are actually twin rooms, but limited security. The hike back to Listvyanka from here is lovely. The route is easy to follow, tricky in places with fallen trees blocking the path and...

This is the perfect place to come and relax, enjoy some beautiful scenery and peace and quiet. We walked here from Listvyanka and snapped up the offer of dinner when we arrived. If you are offered food here, take it! It's tasty and fresh. Some of the best food of our trip so far.

The place is very simple with cabins, a basic kitchen, toilets outside, simple beds, and you have to get water from the lake in winter. The view is amazing, the village is picturesque and the people are... very few. (About 20 people in winter). The guy who run the place is very nice. It makes you feel in deep Siberia...

Very nice little village, calm, authentic, many possibilities to hike and explore the lake. Aleksej is a very friendly and will help you everything you need. You should try out the banja, the Russian sauna. At night you may start a fire next to the harbor and grill your Omul.

Lesnaya 7 is a small hostel located in the gorgeous town of Bolshyie Koty on the shores of Lake Baikal. The town is not accessible by road and so provides a unique Russian rural experience, particularly in winter. The Lesnaya 7 hostel provides a great base for exploring this region with simple yet comfortable rooms, communal cooking facilities and (in...

We stayed here for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the accomodation is in lovely chalets and the shared bath room has an environmentally friendly composting loo (bonus points for that) Alex, the owner is very friendly and invited us to visit him at his home in Irkutsk too. Would highly reccomend Bolshie Koty which is where Lesnaya 7...

Lesnaya 7 is located in Bolshie Koty on the Lake Baikal shore. It is only reachable by ship or a 20km walk along the shore from Listvyanka. Instead of the expensive hotels and souvenir stands in Listvyanka, Bolshie Koty has exclusively wooden houses, free-roaming horses and cows - there are no cars or even stores anywhere in the village. If...
