    Small family-run place located smack in the middle of Cholpon-Ata’s main drag. 20 minutes walk from the beach. Relaxed atmosphere and nice outdoor patio for socialising; the teenage girls who help run the place are fun to hang out with too. Sometimes kids from next door would even run through and play ball games in the yard! Rooms cozy and well ventilated. Fast WiFi and hot clean showers. Amenities on the basic side but did the job. Would stay again.

    Convenient hostel. I was there at the end of the season so there weren’t many people staying, but it was easy to connect with those that were there. Helpful staff and comfortable beds.

    I stayed here two nights and it was good. Place is very clean, also close to the beach, supermarket and many (Russian) tourists markets. Also, the rooms are surprisingly cool during the warm days, AC was really not needed. Staff is friendly and volunteers were great.

    Good atmosphere. Easy to meet people. I booked for Apple hostel but was actually sent to another hostel in the middle of a park nearby. Not great.

    Came for the WNG and so they were overbooked and I had to stay down the road, no soap or toilet paper and damp smelling rooms. Good communal vibe if you're staying in the actual hostel and the staff are very helpful. Zero security!

    First things first if you book a private room you're not actually staying in Apple hostel, you're staying in another hotel across the road. It would be nice if they told you this prior to arrival. The other place is perfectly adequate but our room hadn't been cleaned properly. It had an ensuite which smelt of mildew and we didn't have any toilet paper despite asking! Also we weren't given towels which is a bit annoying.

    This hostel effectively acts as a broker for all guest houses in the area so I booked apple but didn't actually stay there, met 3 people on the way to C-A, all had booked apple all ended up in different places all over town Where I did stay they emptied bathroom bin once in 5 days and security very lax anyone could just walk in. The lady at apple was relatively helpful but saw no staff where I actually stayed was less of a hostel more a hotel they had shoved extra beds into to try make a dorm.
