Rubbish hostel in terms of despite being told it's an INTERNATIONAL youth hostel, they wouldn't take us despite prebooking, as we were Brits? They said it was government policy. We met others staying there on one of our tours the next day, they'd be staying there for 4 days already and said there was hardly anyone staying there so should... More

Enjoyed our stay, perfectly pleasant and staff willing to help with our many (and sometimes odd) requests. Rooms & sheets were clean, rooms spacious enough, large communal area and great roof top to dry clothes in the desert sun. Bathrooms/loo area could do with a facelift but are regularly cleaned. Good location, 4mins walk to bus no.3 (to the dunes).... More

After we finised showering under our warmish water, we... More

I booked this hostel months in advance to travelling to Dunhuang. I emailed and they confirmed it would be fine to stay with them. They were aware we were British from the start. Before we left for China and emailed them to confirm that we looked forward to staying with them in a few weeks, and then to confirm a... More

Dunhuang International Youth Hostel was a great base for travelling around the surrounding areas -- I completely recommend it. We were a group of five travelling together, and took one double room on the top floor and one dorm. The rooms were clean and affordable (Y160 for the double, Y50 per bed in the dorm) with the double having its... More
