English speaking staff that were far more than happy to answer all anoying traveling questions. No cost tea and coffee. Straightforward cooking facilities WIFI and computers to use. Also Nickoli was really helpful in booking transiberian trains for us on the computer.

Dimitri was the most effective thing about this hostel. He did everything he could for us, helped us book train tickets and print them off etc. The cooking area had fantastic facilities and as it&'s a small hostel, it doesn&'t get crowded.

Extremely warm and friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic with organising onward journey. Even altered the security protocol on the WiFi router so we could get our iPods working on it. Excellent value. Small and cozy atmosphere.

We arrived on the day that the old owners were leaving and also the new owner was arriving, so a bit of a tricky time. Overall it was fine. Dimitry, the new owner is really really nice and even took us for a walk and to the Mongolian Embassy to help us with our visas, which we really really appreciated. On the other hand though many of the services advertised on the website were no more available, although I see he has updated the website now, and he reduced the cost so it kind of evened out, just not what we expected though. We stayed for three nights and by the time we left the place was in much need of a good clean! We were inside the 5 bed dorm which was spacious. Extremely extremely thin matresses and mosquitos. There is also a 2 bed dorm (matresses on ground) and a more inexpensive 2-bed dorm which is bunk beds inside the common room.

Very nice spot with family flair! We enjoyed our stay here. Thanks to Olga and Maxim, the friendly employees members, for being so helpful with organizing bus and holiday accommodation on Olchon Island and providing a lot of info of the city. We are especially greatful that they managed to book us train tickets late inside the night on the internet although almost all tickets were already sold out! Maxim, you are a booking expert indeed! Thanks for all.

The staff here will go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. They're also fun people. The hostel is very comfortable, with good facilities and a good atmosphere. Highly recommended!
