Decent hostel, easy to get to places around it. Good facilities; we took their camel tour, their day trip to the yardang landforms and the free shuttle from the airport. Beds comfy and each with power socket and lamp. Bathrooms okay, occasionally no hot water in the showers, one western toilet. Facilities for washing clothes too.

Hostel is a great location, close to the markets and within a 25-30¥ taxi cab to Mogao caves and the crescent lake. Easily accessible from the local bus as well. Staff was very friendly as well despite little English, however, were confused on where to get tickets for the Mogao caves - TICKETS MUST BE BOUGHT A DAY BEFORE GOING AND SELL OUT QUICKLY! Went at 11 the day before and only had 8 tickets left for the next day. Bathrooms were dirty but overall good experience - ps zero nightlife

Overall a good stay. Rooms are clean but the bathrooms overflow with water when the shower is used. The common area is relaxing with big couches and a pool table. Tried to get some help to go different scenic spots but the lady at the counter was really not helpful even when the conversation was in chinese. The most incompetent staff member I've incountered at a hostel. The manager thus seems like a nice guy and helped with bargaining a taxi without us asking for it.

Nice hostel. Sadly stuff doesn't speak any english. The "camel trekking and night in a desert" they organize was sadly only a night in a desert without any camels. They also didn't know about train ticket booking office (that is in the town). Otherwise the dorms, common area is nice and clean. Just a tiny bit of english or a bit more communication effort would make a place better.

Good hostel. Nice location. Nice rooms. Good showers but not the cleanest. Arranged trips to the desert which was awesome. Definitely do it.

Simple, clean, solid and cheap. Close to main commercial area. Electronic locks on dorm doors and large lockers with a key, so probably on the more secure side as far as hostels go. Pool table :)

This is a pretty good hostel with a nice vibe. Some of the day staff were a little surley, but in an endearing way, which i personally appreciated. The owner seemed like a cool dude, and the pool table in the common area was a nice touch. By any means, i stayed at both the places listed on hostelworld and this place is better than the other one imo tbh fam.
