Zaya caters to every need of a traveler to Mongolia. It has a good location and you can walk to several of the big attractions in town. It is clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They are really good about helping you plan your trip and it was easy to get a driver to drive to some... More

As far as cheap accomodation goes in UB, Zaya's is your best bet from what we saw there. The owner is friendly and very helpfull, he'll be there most mornings and is always keen to offer help on tours and trips. The rooms are very basic, we had one night in a double with shared bathroom and one night in... More

We had overall a very nice stay. The location is good. The rooms are big enough and clean. The only negative point is that our room was not closing properly. Bathrooms were OK and clean. Good breakfast. Helpful staff. Wifi was not working in our room, but was OK in the common area. One computer is available to go online.

Stayed at Zaya's for 3 nights and had a great time. I won't get into specifics as the numerous reviews already sum everything pretty well, but the location is ideal and safe (you have to ring a bell to get in), most of the staff is super friendly and helpful, and the rooms and shared bathroom are kept very clean!...

This is a good hostel in UB. We had a twin room with shared bathrooms. The room was very clean and the beds comfortable. The bath towels were very tired though. The shared bathrooms were kept clean and tidy. However, there was an issue with one of the bathrooms as the shower base must have had a leak and the... More

We loved Zaya Hostel not only for the super clean bathrooms and warm atmosphere, but for Anand most of all. He is a truly great guy who helped us out and went above and beyond when we didn't have a place to stay and didn't have a reservation. He goes out of his way to make sure his guests are... More

I liked the Zaya Hostel the most. We stayed in the Lotus Guesthouse before and checked out the UB guesthouse. But Zaya is definetly the nicest place. The location is great, the bed comfortable, the shared toilets are clean and the staff is friendly. The breakfast was included and we got a muesli with yoghourt or milk, 1 boiled egg,... More

I stayed in this hostel for 5 nights and was impressed. It is in a great location within walking distance to all of the cities attractions. Everything you need is withfig your finger tips length.

Stayed 3 nights in the midst of -25 degree winter. Glad to say both rooms and water were sufficiently warm enough. The hostel is located at the west end if peace avenue and is a little tricky to find and it isn't down the most attractive of side streets or buildings. But what it lacks in look from the outside...

Everything you could want in a hostel - clean bathrooms, cosy common area, kitchen and very accommodating staff. They gave sufficient information on everything we needed to know about city, tours, tansportstion etc.I highly recommend Zaya Hostel to anyone wanting a... More
