Ignore your first impression when you turn down the street next to the large Peace Mall -- actually looks like an alley. At the end of the street is a large lit sign TSE (a chain of bars in UB) and a much smaller Zaya sign above. Zaya is located on the 3rd floor of the building. Walk to the... More

Zaya's Guest House is a friendly clean place in a perfect location in Ulaanbaator. Taking your shoes of and slipping in your slippers in the hall makes you feel like being in your own Apartment. When we came back from our trip to Western Mongolia and they had messed up our bookings they even moved us to a fully furnished... More

Would definitely recommend this place! After staying at a hotel (cold and twice as expensive) and seeing other "guesthouses" in UB, Zaya's felt like an oasis of peace and a home away from home during my stops in between UB and the countryside. The owner speaks English fluently, is kind, and is very helpful with Mongolia's sometimes challenging logistics. The... More

We stayed here for two separate nights (before and after the Gobi trip). The first time we stayed in a room with an attached bathroom($45), which was very comfortable. On our return, due to some communication issues, we did not get the same room hence had to share bathroom($40). Rooms are nice though we preferred the first room. The owner... More

The guesthouse/hostel is clean, the owner is very friendly and speaks excellent English. We stayed one night before our trek and 2 nights afterwards. Our first room was a shared bathroom, the second was en-suite. Unfortunately on all three nights, only 1 shower had hot water (something to do with the city turning off the hot water to that area...

Definitely the best guest house in UB.. We were there in July, busy period, but super friendly staff, efficient, very quiet rooms, nice travelers (not too young) and incredibly clean !!!! We have tried Golden Gobi and Nassan GH also recommended by the Lonely Planet but for only 2/3 dollars more, Zaya is definitely the best !

Right off UB's main street this modern and well equipped hostel is a good choice. We stayed in the apartment below for some total chill-out after 3 weeks on the move across Russia. Great choice, good wifi, basic breakfast included. Only gripes: apartment had dusty floors and charges for laundry steep (where's the self-serve washing machine facility?) Main hostel spacious...
