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 embedded 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. 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!
