    Best hostel I've stayed in in Central Asia both dorm and the yurts are very clean and comfortable, and the cafe/bar does great food and is a really good social space. Duet hostel is a great place for meeting other travellers to link up for trekking and other trips around Kyrgyzstan, and staff are very friendly and helpful.

    Our favorite hostel thus far because of the information booklets about the region, culture, town, and food! They had printout directions easily directing you to different hiking trails and buses to get to nearby towns/natural sites. We liked the laid back canteen connected, yurt, and proximity to sites in town as well as some easy mountain trails. Can’t wait to stay here again!

    Thank you Ana and her brother for helping me arrange transport at the Karkara border, and for supporting me with registration. The bed and shower were great and I made some nice friends here. A social place. Highly recommend. Hope to come back soon

    Really tight ship, great hostel. The only problem was that with all the dogs barking it was hard to get to sleep in the yurts

    Cool hostel, very kind and helpful staff! We feel the tourist vibe as well in terms of offerings (tips for trips, services, western food) A bit out-centered.

    Decent and cosy hostel, has only one comfortable dorm. Showers and toilets are clean and there are more than enough. The building can get very cold at night, but they have an electric heater. Staff is not always present and anybody can just walk in, so it might be smart to lock your valuables. They do offer lockers.

    We arrived at 2am from Bishkek and they told us that they were closed even though we had booked, so we stayed at interhouse hostel 2 blocks down as they were 24hours. They were also very hard to get into contact we had called them several times prior to tell them of our late arrival and hoping to change the fate of our booking but they never answered the phone and only got back to us via email at night when it was too late.
