There is not much choice for hostels in Kashgar and as others say you have to lower your expectations compared to the rest of China. We stayed in the family room and overall it was a good experience and the main bed was very comfortable. The staff remembered us on our return trip. It's quiet on that side of the hostel - the other rooms face the street so they could be noisier. Location is excellent and sitting on the roof-top platforms is relaxing. Wifi worked well for us our whole stay.
We already reviewed the place as a dump - there is nothing to add. Stay somewhere else if you can! We get the honor of a second review because our initial booking was split in two parts.
The place is a dump. Zero maintenance since years. Should be torn down. Not clean, not comfortable and we had to beg for breakfast - which was poor. Hostel is right above an abandoned mall which is used as repair shelter for local tinkering from 5 a.m. until midnight. Staff yelling at each other at 7a.m. right outside our door (which can't be locked from the inside). Location was good and the cats were friendly
Really nice hostel right next to the mosque, the heart of the local part if the city. Staff are friendly and ready to give advice. Lovely coffee and a really cool outside area, perfect for chilling out and watching the world go by. DONT EAT AT THE BBQ DOWNSTAIRS! The food is nice but they will seriously swindle you!
Very nice hostel, friendly staff, great location opposite the mosque, good food and coffee. Clean rooms and good showers, lockers available in dorm rooms so very secure.
The old town hostel has much better twin rooms than this hostel
No lock on the dorm door. Super friendly and very helpful staff. Superb location overlooking the main square. Great balcony/mezzanine communal area. Would absolutely recommend this hostel. Loved my stay here.
This is one of worst hostels we have ever stayed. We booked a private room with private bath.however when we got there they gave us a 6 bed dorm no running water no working fan or air conditioning filthy with the previous guests waist still in the basket. This place is filthy as soon as you enter the stairwell going up to the hostel. You are also unable to sit in the common area on the outside deck because of all the smoke from the grilling station straight below on the sidewalk.
Staff was very friendly and helpful, some of the best staff we encountered during 2 1/2 months of staying in hostels in China. Room was good enough, but we had booked a double private room with air conditioning and western toilet but we got put into an 8-bed dorm room with no AC and a squatter. We still had the room to ourselves, but it would have been nice to get the room we thought we were going to get. Watch out for the communal toilets - some of the most disgusting toilets we've ever seen!
