Its exterior doesn't look inviting but the interior is very nice and comfortably heated in spring when it s harshly cold outside. Living room and all room areas including bathroom are very spacious and comfortable. All staff are friendly and informative. The host can ring the local authority straightaway for more information when being asked. I do love this place and highly recommend to all of you.
In a walking distance to most attractions and they offer you free pick up from the railway station. Decent affordable tours are available no matter one day or a trip away fir a few days . Nice and comfortable to stay in as if you are at home. I really like the place .
The most impressive feature is the friendly staff being supportive and informative, but the only downside is the lack of key to get through the gate. Anyway you simply knock and the staff will open the gate for you in no time.
Ended up staying at Sunpath quite a few days, really clean nice hostel and Doljmaa and her husband were lovely, really looked after me! Also did the Gobi Desert tour, I had a great time!! Quite a lot of driving but Serjey our guide and our driver were awesome. Saw some really cool stuff and stayed with ger families. Bear in mind that she will literally say anything to get you on a tour though ;-) overall lovely place, very clean, amazing staff, good wifi, great tours = stay here! :)
Really great hostel. Doljmaa and her husband are great hosts and they also run tours which are great fun!
Great hostel, offers airport transfers, friendly staff, provided free breakfast, safe and secure (lockers in every room), 24h reception, clean and comfortable, happy to provide advice/help organise things for you, good location (walking distance from central square and lots of restaurants etc.

My stay was excellent overall and I will recommend this place to everyone coming to UB!
Awesome place run by a lovely family. Great chilled out vibe and Doljmaa really cannot do enough for you. I went on the four night, five day Central Mongolia tour and it was great value for money as the tour, guide and driver were all absolutely fantastic. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting UB!
The hostel was very cozy and the staff were so kind and helpful! I was a bit sick when I arrived and they kept checking on me and put other guests who arrived later in their other dorm room so that they wouldn't be disturbed by my cough. Highly recommended!
We had a great stay at Sunpath. In addition to our time in UB being excellent, Doljmaa organized a great trip for us into central Mongolia. Couldn't have asked for more.
Well, so far one of the most value choices for money ! Stayed there almost 10 days included trip and it was the best experience I could get in Mongolia! Very friendly staff, amazing drivers - always care about their guests, ready to help all the time ! (they helped me get medicine when I got sick and checked on me every day while i went on trip to countryside). You want regret ! :)

There is no need to look anywhere else. We started at UB in another famous hostel, but was so glad we moved here. When you are a newer hostel on the block, you try harder. The staff were great, the hostel is spotless and the facilities were accessible all the time. The owner understands the need of backpackers and are excellent at arranging group tours so it is affordable for everyone.
I booked this hostel a week in advnace, arranged to be picked up from the train station, and was promised to have my tours arranged on arrival. I arrived in UB, was met with a smiling face and taken to the hostel. The hostel is in an old building, seems unusual but once you walk into the apartment.........its a bright, clean well kept place :) I was shown to my dorm, lockers with keys available. As promised, i was given all the options for the tours, booked one and it couldn't have gone better!
Had a great time with Sunpath! We did a 16 day tour in the East, Gobi and Central. Although a few teething problems in the East (not set up for tourists at all) it was great to see this area where most people hadn't seen foreigners before!! Doljmaa was lovely and our tour guide (Gala) and driver (Jagger) awesome! Just be prepared for a lot of driving as it is the only way to see most of the country. Double check your itinerary and driving times. Excellent value for money, would recommend!
