Yes the hostel is not clean. You do get a sheet set when you check in and there are lockers in the rooms. The staff are friendly and a lot of English is spoken. There is little choice in Urumqi and the location of this place is good, especially if you just need a bed for the night. Very close to Carrefour and places to eat. About 40rmb in a taxi to the airport. One Western toilet downstairs, otherwise Chinese-style all the way.
Helpful staff, bathrooms not clean, good place to meet travellers. Don't follow the instructions in the binder for buying a bus ticket to Almaty unless you have a few hours to waste!! Ask them for the card for the bus station instead.
