I stayed in Zaya One and Zaya Three and can highly recommend both. Cleanest, most pleasant place I've stayed in UB so far and very good value. Best breakfast too - filter coffee and eggs! Really friendly, helpful staff that make you feel very welcome. Both my rooms were spacious, quiet and comfortable - perfect to recover after a some... More

We had a great stay at Zaya during our recent trip to UB. The owner and staff are very friendly. They gave a lot of good tips to arrange for tours infringement UB. The place is clean. The laundry prices are not expensive. Internet is fast and reliable. Would definitely recommend staying here.

I only had one night in Ulan Baatar and I stayed at the Zaya Hostel. I got picked up from the train station by driver organised by the hostel. The hostel itself was very clean and tidy (remember to take your shoes off) and the staff were incredibly effective in organising a trip out to the Chingiss Khan statue that... More

Zaya's hostel is located 5 minutes away from the State Department Store, so it's a good place to explore the city center and easy to find your way home at night. First door has a code and you have to ring the bell to come in at day at night, however there is always somebody to open the door. Didn't... More

My experience at Zaya's was a little mixed, with pros and cons contributing to my feelings about this place. The first issue I had was the transport from the train station. i've lived in Mongolia long enough to be able to get myself to and from places, but when I replied to the offer of transport and they said they...

We stayed in Zaya 2 before and after a tour. Great location, close to shops and restaurants. Rooms are clean and plenty of room, and the booking process was seamless. We booked a pickup from the train with them as well, no problems. They were pretty busy when we stayed, lots of walkins looking for a bed, so suggest you... More

We stayed in both Zaya's 1 and 2 before and after our trip to the South Gobi. Both are near to each other and well located either side of Peace Avenue. Both entrances to the apartment blocks are scruffy but once inside it's very clean and well furnished. Anand was really helpful is arranging tours and transfers between the train... More

A really good well priced place to stay in Ulaanbaator, close to shops, restaurants and local sights. As a single female traveller I felt very safe here and met many other interesting travellers in the common room. There are 2 hostel's and I stayed in both, both are clean and well run, the part owner Anand is particular about his... More

Great location, welcoming layout, great hostess, good breakfast (included) super clean, nice common area. Only thing that could be better ( for me) is a softer bed they were very firm. I Would easily recommend any in Ulaanbaatar to stay here.

We booked a tour through Zaya while we actually stayed in its 'sister' hostel on our return. Having been staying in gers in the mongolian wilderness, it was a delight to return to such a welcoming sight as the impressive wood floors, HOT showers and all that Zaya offered. Internet was excellent and although they had a strange system for... More
