Stuff spoke little English. No lockers. Dirty baths rooms. Common area is loud at nighttimes
Good, central location. Air conditioning in room was on all day, which was great！ Bathrooms could be cleaner. Really should put lockers in rooms, although safety seemed fine. Paid 100rmb pp for shared taxi all day trip to visit Tuyoc, Bezeklik, Flaming Mountains, Jiaohe and Gaochang. Man selling shred ride was,not very,friendly,guy, but driver,on,day was fine.
Basic but cheerful hostel. By "poor security" I don't mean personal safety -- it's just that there's no real practical way to keep valuables safe when you go for day trips, since there's no locks on the room doors. The crowd passing through was a fun, laid-back mix of westerners and mainlanders. The hostel arranged a busy full-day tour to most of the local sights, which was worth the price (85 RMB) for simplifying the transportation. Entries to all the sites weren't too bad.
This hostel is hold by two very nice young Chinese guys. They were really helpful and even drove us for free to the bus station the day we left. Otherwise the rooms are very basic but it's ok to sleep and the hostel is in the city centre.
Really nice hostel. Would absolutely recommend. Friendly and helpful staff. No locks on the doors, but I felt safe. Great communal area. WiFi and other facilities including a washing machine.
We really enjoyed our stay at the White Camel Hostel. The main area is big and nice and cool on a hot day. The staff was helpful and friendly; however, the bathroom area could use more attention. Cleanliness is questionable and could be improved rather easily. Other than that we had a nice time at the hostel.
Garbage cans overflowing in rooms and toilets. Guests have to 'check out' sheets. No kitchen.
It's a pretty knew Hostel so I hope some things will get better over the time. The location is really nice, but address in Chinese characters would be helpful. The stuff speak neither Chinese nor English very well, many misunderstandings. There are no keys to the rooms, but the whole hostel is shut down during the night, you can't get out in case of emergency. The bathrooms aren't very clean, there is no toilet paper. No space in the rooms to put or hang things. Loved the cute kittens though!
The staff were friendly and tried to be helpful, but there is no English spoken by the people who man the desk, so if you don't have some Chinese you'll be struggling. The rooms don't lock and security depends upon the 24 hour watchfulness of the staff. a lockable door would be more reassuring. The accommodation is basic, but quite satisfactory for the price. There are no problems with cleanliness.
Nice place,well located and the staff are very helpful.I would recommend this place if you are visting Turpan.
The hostel is very nice, it is the only hostel in turpan so is obviously the best place to stay. The atmosphere is wonderful - it has a courtyard layout and all the staff are super friendly. We stayed 4 days longer than expected because the staff and their friends that hang out there kept cooking for us. The rooms are local cave style so are always a nice temperature- shared bathrooms with western toilets. As yet no locks on doors but staff watch doors instead.this is one of my favourite hosts!x
