    Walls are covered with helpful information on good restaurants in the area, what busses to take where and hikes in the surrounding area. Breakfast was reasonably priced and was actually quite good. They even have a whiteboard where you can list your personal details if you are looking to find a companion for a day trip of hike in the upcoming days. I saw staff deep cleaning every day. Quite possibly my favourite hostel I have stayed in Central Asia thus far.

    Perfect stop for access to the national park, taxi and marshruktas very close by. They have a guest house or a few yurts. We opted for the house but the yurk space looked really cool. The reception is in the cafe which is also owed by the hostel. Good place to chill, grab a cold beer and the food is very good. Pizzas, pastas and burgers. Breakfast they have fruit and nutty yogurt bowls for a healthy option or Nutella banana pancakes. Loads of useful info for trekking etc. Loved this place

    One of my top 5 worldwide hostels, for sure. Perfect base for trekking. Has a full booklet with all information you need for the area. Right next to a shop, equipment rental, and the bustop for Ala Kul trek. Two kitchens v useful. Staff speak near perfect English. Very easy to meet others and find trekking companions.

    Very nice accommodation facility. Beds are placed in yurts and what could seems that will be cold during the night was actually a pleasant experience. Only thing is that is getting to cold evening and night so taking shower outdoors is bit tricky. Very clean toilets, hot water, and nice lobby for meetings. Ppl from another hotels are coming here to chill as the place is awesome. Only the bar is overpriced if compare to city prices.

    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.
