Family business

Hello, my name is Madina Sabyrovna Balakhisheva, and I am proud to present to you our family business. Hospitality is in our blood, my grandfather also kept a guest house and met visitors from all over the world.  ESENIN 1 Hostel & Bar is a new cozy hostel in Karakol, created with love for all the travelers.

We opened ESENIN 1 hostel in the summer of 2023 as a part of our ecosystem which already includes the MADANUR hotel, SIERRA cafe, and a Coworking center. 

Tending guests has always been the business of Karakol families
Mixing tradition with fresh influences and a homey atmosphere

Our vibe

Every week we organize free film screenings and parties. We also offer gastronomic, hiking and cycling tours with which you can immerse yourself in the city's culture and taste the unique Dungan cuisine.


In our space we reflect the multiculturalism of Karakol

Dungan culture

Dungan cuisine is a unique cuisine of Central Asia that has absorbed elements of Chinese, Kyrgyz, and other cultures. We offer unique gastronomic tours such as Dungan dinner and Lagman masterclass.


A natural common space among old apple and cherry trees, created for relaxation and shared experiences.


Bike rental, a new big Coworking center, laundry service, or SPA & Massage center? We have a full bunch of services right in our hostel.
