Welcome to Belka Hostel. Belka Hostel is a part of Baikaler®
We are located in Listvyanka, the gateway to lake Baikal. It is only 1 hrs drive from Irkutsk and yet it is in the wilderness.
We offer inexpensive accommodation and services such as: Russian steam bath, bicycles rent and so on.
Our location is 1.3 km far from the main road. Therefore, it is noiseless, windless and sunny here. The pain tree and a cedar grow on our land. Squirrels (Belka in Russian) sometimes visit our cedar tree. Once, an owl paid us a visit.
Every house has fully equipped kitchen: oven, fridge, microwave, plates-cups-spoons-knives-forks, where you can cook food, as well as to socialise with other travellers. You can also watch DVDs or photos from your flash card.
It is located in a pristine part of the village, near the forest and sheltered from the severe Baikal winds. It’s quiet and peaceful and most everyone enjoys a good night’s sleep. This is where people “recharge their batteries” and get ready for the next part of their journey across Russia. Welcome to a great place!
