From the moment we entered the hostel we were welcomed by probably the kindest hostess of whole Kyrgyzstan. This is what made our stay at this hostel so special. The owner of the hostel (an older woman) really wants to give you a warm feeling during your visit to Karakol. If you want to, she even walks with you downtown in order to show you all the exiting places. Before you go to sleep she asks at what time you want to wake up and want to have breakfast served. Next to that the guesthouse was connected with CBT (Community Based tourism), which meant you could simply plan day-trips or tours around Karakol. Only downside of this guesthouse is the 25 minute walk to the city center. Highly recommended!
