Property Description

Sain baina uu! We’re happy to welcome you to our home. We are a friendly family who is originally from central Mongolia (since ancient times) and has over ten years of experience in trips to the countryside.

Our house is the perfect place to land in UlaanBaatar before making your way to Central, East, West, North or South Mongolia. We are just a short walk to the main avenue where there are many shops, restaurants, pubs, cafes and banks. We recommend staying 3 to 5 nights in UB to make the most out of what the city has to offer, but also take time to plan your trip into nature. We can discuss your chosen route before or after you arrive.

Our tours are always a maximum of two jeeps. You will not end up in a convoy of tourist mini vans. In the same spirit, we will prioritize your sleeping arrangements to be in nomad-owned gers instead of tourist ger camps (unless you prefer otherwise). We have kept close relationships with local nomad families over several years, you might even end up in one of our relatives’ ger!

We pride ourselves in the tailored tours we are able to offer, for groups or solo travelers. Please get in touch with any questions you might have!
Tours that we organize:
-Short trips to Terelj national park, Khustai national park, Elsen Tasarkhai (Mongol Els) mini gobi,
-Tour to Gobi desert
-Tours to Central part of Mongolia
-Tours to north, east and west parts of Mongolia
-Horse trekking in Terelj National park and in Eight lakes
-Home stay with nomad family
-City tour … etc.

    The hostel was spotless, great location and the owners are wonderful. They speak good English and as I came during a slower season they were able to bring me on a tour of different nomadic families in Mongolia. It was a unique experience, definitely off the tourist trail. I would definitely recommend this place!

    Well my guess is right the place is so wonderful for people who want to stay in this place with a lot of wonderful things that happened to me and my wife. Well I really recommend to everyone to stay and feel it how wonderful the owners are and they always give me very good feeling. We went to Gobi with their son as a guide and a driver and they both very professional and accomodated us with very good Ger and dinner as well. We never forget this wonderful experience and be back again.

    This hostel was great. Its location was excellent - 20 min easy walk from the center of the city. The family who runs the place is very friendly and work hard to make it comfortable. It was raining extremely hard while we were there, and the roof started to leak, but the day it stopped raining they had repairmen on the roof fixing it. I think that counts as good maintenance. They were also good about planning tours.

    Gan and his wife Iuuna (sorry if I mispelled!) were the most wonderful hosts. Arriving as a solo traveller in UB I was so grateful for Gan picking me up from the train station on foot and making me feel instantly welcome in the city! His manner was fantastic and I felt myself well looked after during my time there. What's more, Gan's contacts meant I was able to arrange some wonderful trips at short notice and much cheaper than with tour companies, even in just one week. I will be staying again!

    We stayed for around 8 days in this hostel inbetween various trips. Staff were amazing, very friendly and good English, location is just out of town... Beds were hard and Wifi was in and out but overall a good stay.

    I generally liked it a lot here! The owners were very sweet and helpful and the location was convenient. My only complaints were that the beds were quite hard (I fixed it by putting an extra duvet on top) and the walls were a bit thin so it could get noisy at night. Other than that, a nice and friendly budget option!

    Nice but simple hostel with very friendly staff. It is not easy to find, hidden by a wodden plank with no sign. The key to our room was missing because a previous guest had forgotten to hand it in when checking out, but the owner's office was the room opposite and he said he would keep an eye on our stuff. He was nice enough to fix breakfast for us even though we left an hour before breakfast started. The beds are hard, but this seems standard in Mongolia.

    The owner is a nice business man. The location is not terrible, but in a bit of a dodgy neighborhood. Decent place, I'd say.
