Customer comments...

'UB Guesthouse & Hostel were a fantastic, friendly & well organised backpackers. They regularly ran day trips to the nearby Terelj National Park (popular for those on the infamous TransSiberian train who have only have a few days), and organised longer trips to the Gobi and Lakes in the 'midwest' of Mongolia. The trip to White Lake they organised for four of us was perfectly-timed, and the driver just brilliant! They also helped me get a ticket for the train back to Beijing (no mean feat I assure you). Services are simple, but more than adequate for backpackers.

The hosts Kim and Bobby are fantastic resources in a city where language barriers can sometimes make getting from A to B a bit tricky. And they pick you up from the train station which is a great help. '


'UB Guesthouse & Hostel is a quiet and clean place in the center of Ulaan Bataar. You can rent free movies and there is a free modest breakfast as well. The cost is $5 per night in a room with 4 dorm beds.

It is very hard to find it but Kim, the Korean owner, promises to pick you up from the train station or airport if you will e-mail or call him.
His Mongolian wife Bobby, helps a lot with any connection with the Mongolian bureaucracy (visa extension, or police registration). '

    Big thank you to Bobby and the whole team for an amazing stay at UB Guesthouse. They are very hospitable, happy to help with any queries or plannings for your trip in Mongolia. Their english is very good which came in handy more than once. They organised a great stay in a Ger (traditional mongolian Yurt) in the national park! And they even picked us up from the train station! The hostel itself was very clean, with great kitchen facilities, wifi and a TV! Hope to see you soon UB!

    A really great place to stay with a decent breakfast and lots of opportunities for excursions away from the city. Bobby and her staff made me feel at home.

    Bobby and her staff really go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable. She has been a safe place for Peace Corps Volunteers to come and stay. The kitchen is small but I have never had a problem with people being inconsiderate with the space. Her staff are always welcoming. Overall, a great place to chose when you're staying in UB.

    Definitely will return to this Guesthouse when spending time in UB again. It's an old building but it's kept really clean by friendly staff that are happy to answer any questions. Overall it's a very trustworthy business in a handy central location.

    This hostel is in the perfect location! It is an excellent spot for vegetarians as it is a very short walk to two very good vegetarian restaurants. Many of the main attractions in Ulaanbaatar (museums, monuments and nightlife) are also only a short walk away. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. The hot water wasn't work for the 4 nights that we stayed there, so we needed to walk to the main office for showers, but I believe this was out of the control of the hostel.

    Very Good

    01 Oct 2017
    PROS: Good location - close to supermarket! Bobby was very helpful. Beds were comfy. Next door to a great bakery. Easy to socialise, but no common area. CONS: Booked a tour with them and it was VERY disappointing. MOULD in the muesli, which I witnessed the staff just mix in to hide it. BARELY 4 people could fit in the kitchen at a time. Only 3 showers/ toilets, and 1 was always closed. Dorms are TINY, not even space for bags. No common area - only one sofa which only the staff used.

    I don't usually write bad reviews but this time I have to. They have some many rules that I never seen anywhere else. I want to share some of their prices: to stay after check-out (in the living room, not in dorm) 4$, quick shower after check out 2$, leave luggage if you go on a tour with them 10$ (otherwise if you only want to leave luggage but you are not on the tour - you can't). TV has to be turned off after 23h!! Also internet is very very bad!
