Description

Nice homestay at a small family place. Good food, warm, electricity. Parking next to the house, toilet outside. Overall very clean, very nice people and the lady of the house speaks English. They also have a second place near-by, so suitable for larger groups. No shower. Price asked was 100 somoni per person, including dinner and breakfast. It was really worth it.

One of the best homestays I had during my time in Central Asia. I arrived there after riding through a small snowstorm and was greeted with a arm cup of tea and freshly baked bread. The food in general is absolutely delicious (home made butter etc.) Lovely owner who speaks excellent English. The room is heated during the night. Pit toilet outside but no shower available. 150 Som for everything.

Delightful homestay - my favorite accommodation in a long time. I arrived in town as it was getting late and bitterly cold. A bunch of boys (in t-shirts!) directed me here. The first thing I noticed is that it was waaarm inside. The owner, Rahima, is incredibly friendly and attentive. Her English is very good so you can chat and ask any questions you have. the food was quite good, a bit more flavorful than what I've been having for the past while. I got to sleep by myself, while she and her brother went to sleep in their other house. slept like a baby. she can take a maximum of 8-10 people at once. total price including dinner and breakfast was 150 som - totally worth it.

by the way, she says Sher's hotel is permanently closed, and the other homestays are only open during the summer. she is the only one open year-round.

Also, they purchased a solar shower system and by the time you read this it should be installed and operating!

Open year round!

Important notes:

1) This is a Tajik family. ~65% of families in town are ethnic Kyrgyz.

2) This is a true homestay, in which you eat with and sleep next to the family. I ate dinner with the family, watched a Tajik wedding video with them in the evening, and milked cows with them the next morning before breakfast together. (If a huge group comes the family sleeps in their other house.)

3) The food is excellent and I honestly enjoyed eating it. Vegetarian-friendly too! Fresh homemade bread and butter; lentil & vegetable soup; stewed 'salad' of onions, peppers, carrots, tomatoes, and garlic in tomato sauce; rice and vegetable soup; fried dumplings filled with potato and onion...

Very nice and friendly family that speaks very good English. Still asking 100/night including dinner and breakfast, or 50/night without. Parking was in the street outside the house, which isn't ideal but the town is safe.
