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

Everything here was great! Staff is very helpful and speak excellent English, the rooms and common spaces are very clean, it is quite and a nice place to meet other travelers. Breakfast is good - thought perhaps could include more selection - overall, really the best place we have seen in Ulaan Baatar. Do book in advance as it is... More

I was greeted by a very warm welcome. After settling in my room, I was introduced to the areas e.g. bathroom, common room, kitchen, etc. I like it very much that there is a sink inside my bedroom. It’s very convenient when I need to just wash my hands, my face. The shared bathrooms (including toilets) were pretty clean. So... More

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.
