One of the best accommodations I've had...ever”

I didn't have a hard time choosing an affordable hotel in Ulaanbaatar. The moment I saw Zaya Hostel in the top search results and read its reviews, I was sold. And based on my personal experience, it was easy to understand why. Upon arriving, I was eagerly welcomed by its manager, Anand. He speaks great English and always checks up on the guests. He toured me first around the hostel and gave me helpful tips before going out of the city. The hostel also offers great tours, so if you don't have any tours booked yet, you don't have to book online or look elsewhere. The tour that I got was a full-day Terelj National Park tour (normally 150$ to 200$ in tour sites), which I got at a discounted price (45$) because we had a larger group. The breakfast was great as you'll be able to help yourselves with the food and drinks available. Water is free so you don't need to buy outside. The room I got was big for 1-2 persons. It was warm and cozy inside, and the WiFi is okay! Two thumbs up!

absolutely great and reasonable place!”

I was in Zaya guest house for 2 night. It is located in center of city so we could easy to go anywhere. (local market, departmentstore, blue sky, cinema, some cafes, etc ..) when I reach the area of hostel, actually I couldn't find the building so I asked to them. One of staff came to me and guide me to hostel. They are really kind. Besides, last day.. After check out, I put my bags in storage room (it was free in one day) then go around in UB until evening. I definitely recommend Zaya hostel!

The Best Hostel in Ulaanbaatar”

I usually don't care much for hostels. The type of travellers I meet at these types of accommodations are usually lacking in character and highly endogamous. You are also highly likely to encounter Western Inteligence and their gap-year legacy at such places. An experienced traveler, I've encountered this all over the world. This description usually fits the proprietors of such establishments as well. Considering my experience with such establishments and their clientelle, I can genuinely recommend Zaya Hostel to any ordinary traveller as a safe and well run establishment. It is clean, comfortable and is well managed most of the time. However, as with all hostels, is best to book as a group.

Great staff, clean and conveniently located place”

The staff are great and speak good English. They told us about the best place to exchange money and about things to do in Ulaanbaatar. They have very convenient and reasonably priced pick up and laundry services. The rooms are very clean. The only con was that we had booked a private room with bathroom but the hot water was not working on those days. However, there was another shower available outside the room which was not busy when we wanted to use it.

Must stay UB/Mongolia!!!!!!!”

Came to Mongolia on a whim. Anon (the owner) helped with everything from planning to arranging a tour (driver/guide). He is professional and trustworthy. He speaks fluent English. The hostel is situated in a very convenient location (Dept stores/loads of restaurants/etc) and you can basically find anything and everything. The hostel facility is very clean and well kept by Anon and the cleaning crew. I honestly had a very very pleasurable stay here. I am planning to return here again towards the end of my trip. Highly highly recommend this place!

Thoroughly recommend this hotel”

Staff, location, cleanliness

This is a superb hotel run by great staff. When I injured myself on arrival in Ulan Bator, before even checking in, the owner came to help me at the police station and sent a car to take me to hospital, before offering me a room in their other hotel that I could access better. He went completely above any beyond with our stay and provided a wonderful taxi driver to look after us for the rest of our stay. The hotel was also spotlessly clean. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
