The patio is very dirty. The bathroom is a lake (the water doesn't exit because the floor is flat so if you take a shower the water stays on the floor and it is really dirty).

This is a great hostel. Perfect location, extremely helpful staff and a great place for hanging out and meeting interesting travellers. Would highly recommend when in Kashgar.


Excellent hostel. Friendly & knowledgable staff, great atmosphere for meeting all kinds of travelers, perfect location in old town. The Pakistani dinner was delicious!


Very good just maintain service.


Location is excellent. Staff are professional, friendly and helpful. Our rate included breakfast which made it a very good deal. Room was OK, clean, bright, but a bit of an odd layout. Plenty of hot water, but low water pressure in shower. Wifi and Internet were patchy. Good atmosphere.


Great location. Friendly staff. Perhaps not enough bathrooms for the amount of guests. I recommend to stay here. Read a full review including directions and pictures at http://www.survivetravel.com/kashgar-old-town-youth-hostel-review-kashgar-xinjiang-china/


Nice hostel - has a good courtyard and is easy to meet people there. Great location, friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Caveat: Two 6 person dorms share one shower and one toilet, which either means you are waiting in line or it is very stinky.


We booked a double, but were given a twin with no explaination. The door didn't really close, and we had to use our own lock to sort of hold it shut, but a gap remained. One internal facing window also just wouldn't shut, so lots of security issues here. Worse, there were no curtains when the room faced a public hallway... we had to ask 3 times and wait until after 10pm to get some put in. Overall the place was pretty basic and run down compared to what's available for the same price.


Definitely one of my favorite places to stay in China. Great people, incredibly friendly and helpful staff (especially the boss seems to know about everything about the region) and nice layout. Only drawbacks: Slow Internet connection and no lockers in the dorms.


best hostel in China


Very nice courtyard to chill. Staffs are helpful.


Super friendly staff. Highly recommended!


Food was very good but it often took a long time ( 60+ minutes one night) to arrive.

Amazing stay! The hostel is right in the old town, a 5-min walk from the mosque. It has a wide courtyard which offers travelers a great place to relax. The staff is nice and happy to help anytime. The dorm was really clean (cleaned daily). DIY laundry facility comes in handy. Improvement could be brought regarding the ninternet connection (saturated in the evenings). Don't forget to check out the rooftop for a sunny breakfast or chill evening!
