I really enjoyed my stay at Anda Guesthouse although I was there off-season. The staff, especially Dimples, is soo nice and the decor cozy, it makes you feel home immediately. Definitely recommended!
What can I say - this place, its staff - fantastic!!!
Nice little guesthouse in a good location, nearby lots of restaurants etc, and they do great tours to the surrounding areas such as the desert and the grasslands. Did the desert tour and had a great time!
I would definitely go back to ANDA without a doubt. It's a bit funky. Clutter all over. Plumbing upstairs did not work well. No towels. Beds hard. But it's a hostel. Location is GREAT! Near "restaurant" street. We found a couple "western" style bars to have a drink. Mongolian restaurant around the corner was great. Menu all in Chinese. Young man wrote out dishes he thought we'd like and we showed it to the waiter. Very helpful.
The 3-day/2-night tour had some major problems. Our van broke down on the way from the grasslands to the temple, and it took almost 2 hours for another one to arrive. Later, we were supposed to spend a night in the desert, but we ended up staying in a grimy (love?) hotel instead. On day 3, we only had 2 hours in the desert before we had to leave. After a long discussion with the manager upon returning to the hostel, he very reluctantly agreed to refund each of us 200元 (out of 1130元 paid).
I really enjoyed my time at the hostel. The staff were all very friendly and efficient. I went on one of the tours they offer which was fun. Also with it being a friendly atmosphere it's easy to interact with other travellers.
