What exactly is a host family? It is a local family, either traditional married couple with kids or a single parent or even a childless elderly couple, willing to welcome people from around the globe to their household. Our host families are handpicked to ensure that students will immediately feel the famous siberian hospitality. Our hosts are patient and understanding when students are not yet confident when practicing their Russian language skills.

Students have their own bedroom and share kitchen and bathroom with the hosts. One can choose between breakfast only and a half-board option (breakfast and dinner).

Standard check-in/check-out is on Sundays. A daily rate is also available if you need to prolong your stay, and 5+ extra days are equivalent to one week.

Student testimonials

“The family was very engaged and friendly, I instantly felt at home. They treated me like I was part of the family.”

Alina Scheklaukov

“My host family was very accommodating and helped me with my Russian whenever I needed. They were incredibly nice and made me feel like I was part of a family. I would love to live with them again, and I keep in touch with them through email.”

Ricky Gandhi

“In my host family we had good conversations in Russian language. Anna and Andrej were very welcoming and helpful, took me to school the first day, explained all important things and even spent a Saturday with me to show me Zarskoje Selo. Anna’s Russian food was delicious! I really felt at home with them. Our school city tour on first day with Tonya was interesting and very good for a first impression.”
