Golden Gobi

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

they refused to pick us up from railwaystation (despite of advertising this), charged us the price for four participants despite of being a group of five (approx. usd 100 more pp) for one of their tours, reacted outright rude "you always complain about money" (a blatant lie) when politly asking for the reason and told us that we have to leave the van if we "are not happy" with them... due to time restriction we didn't actually cancel the tour - despite of the obvious ripp off!

great value for money, excellent location and friendly, english speaking staff. rooms are the exact opposite of huge and also the breakfast is not their strong side. however: beer is cheap and you'll get a free caipirinha every night!


At the time of our stay the hostel resembled a construction site. By now however all works should be finished and the place should definitely be considered as a central, reasonably priced and clean option! Breakfast, which was included in the price wasn't their strongest side, though. Staff was friendly, extremely helpful, multilingual and mainly uruguayan! ;-) tom, AT
