Positives: - each room has an en suite bathroom - the price is reasonable - they let us check in very early which was much appreciated after the long train journey from Irkutsk Negatives: - overpoweringly bad smell from the bathroom which felt toxic and also made bedroom smell - bathroom in terrible condition: shower was a dribble and ceiling leaked so there was always a puddle of water on the floor - staff tried to add extra padding but bed was one of the worst i've ever stayed in

Great with accommodating a last-minute booking. The manager was also wonderful in walking me to the ATM after dark as well as arranging a taxi to the airport. I didn't do a tour but I heard comments from other travellers that they had a great time. Would recommend to future travellers.

Not really a hostel (more like a guesthouse), so not much atmosphere for meeting fellow travelers. The room was clean and good. Location is not excellent - I'd recommend for people to stay closer to Sukhbaatar Square.

The guy who looked after us(sorry, I didn't ask his name) was so friendly and helpful. Really nice guy. We woke him at 1145 one night to get in the front door and he was so lovely. I would def stay here again

i have stayed at Danista Nomads during 9 nights. In my opinion, this guesthouse is a perfect place for touring in Mongolia. The guesthouse is located behind Ramada hotel, a kind of biggest hotel in UB, so it is easy to find the place. and room charge is very cheaper than another guesthouses . besides, free wifi service is very comfortable. wifi is working in most parts of the guesthouse. above all, Heegill, who is a manager of the house, is very kind and funny. i'm impressed with his kindness.

Nearly impeccable, save for the complete lack of mood, atmosphere, call it whatever you want

I will admit that the staff overthere tries their best by working with what they got....which isnt a lot...i have been there 6 night in a single room with private toilette....the single room was based only with a bed...and the toilette,where the shower was basically washing the whole toilette and makes a lot of water out side of the toilette floor. I spent around 3 days asking for at least a chair where i could put my staff on it because in the room (which by the way is comicly small) was empty.

Our stay at Danista fulfilled our essential needs: A double room, ensuite, hot water and decent walk-able location to the city's sights. An odd smell from the recently renovated bathroom and a stiff bed were the only complaints. The staff were amazing at making sure we were happy and had all that we needed. We bragged to our fellow travelers' about the great deal we got at Danista!

Neji is awesome! He makes DN a great hostel. His English is fantastic and he was very helpful in arranging our motor bike for our trip to Gun-Galuut Natural Reserve where we spent a night in a Ger. He let us leave our bags overnight during our road trip, met us at the train station to help us find the hostel...there was a good breakfast: eggs, bread, buscuts, sausage, etc. Highly recommended...would stay there again.

Danista is a little out of town, staff is very friendly to help but a little overdone and forgetting the basic things such as towels.. The current building is clean but due to all the renovations taking place it stinks to paint and glue, which smells through the whole place. The two person beds are small so for bigger people it is worthwhile to ask for one of the rooms with the bigger beds, which they have one. The place will be of value when renovations are done and the area is upgraded a lit

First of all, Thank you so much for leaving us the review. We are happy to let you that all mistakes are removed. The renovation already done since you hosted at our hostel. As for the beds, are normal to everyone in proper size. Many thanks for your precious advice. We will implement our further business. Thank you again dear Joukje Janssen.
