A nice little hostel 2 minutes away from the Gandan Monastery run by a couple who live there. The rooms are simple but cosy and comfortable. They provide breakfast everyday, and are more than willing to help you plan your trip (with valuable advice). We really enjoyed our stay here; got to meet lots of people from different countries. Only down side was that sometimes the wi-fi gets turned off for no reason during the day and is completely unavailable at night.
Wonderful hostel whose fluent English-speaking owners bend over backwards to help. In the same road as the Gandan monastery (15-minute walk or short bus ride to main square). On the left you see Orkhon 1/2/3/4 and finally Orkhon 5 and a sign for the hostel. Excellent kitchen facilities and free tea. Tasty breakfast. Also runs accomodation at/transport to Terelj national park but unlike every other hostel isn't pushy to get you to use them. Only mini-moan is that laundry is a bit pricy.
Wonderful friendly owners. Very good value for money.
The couple who runs this hostel are the sweetest people you'll ever meet. They're super helpful and you feel more like their house guest than a hostel customer. Their free breakfast is da bomb. The only suggestion I would have for them (being nit picky) is to put a shower rack/more hooks in the shower stalls to hang your stuff on. The building is also in a developing area that is a bit of a walk from downtown, but it's an interesting area to walk through/people watch/visit monastery goings-ons.
nice little place, huge social areas and geeky very comfortable
Excellent stay with superb service!

The location is near the monastery, but in a old block. This is the only minus of the hostel, but it is not very important... The hostel was very goog indeed, all new and with good showers and kitchen. Staff was super kind and made a big breakfast (not the average bread and jam that all ulan bator hostels offer).
Super basic facilities but everything you need. It felt a little awkward cooking in their kitchen at first, but I don't think they mind much, plus you'll spend pore money in the grocery store than going to a cheap restrung. Nothing to complain about. Low key vibes and not too far from the center. Gan (owner) and his family are very welcoming. Breakfast is frickin tight. Not a party hostels, but idk the UB standard anyway.
