I've stayed here twice--most recently in December (in the room pictured in the photo). The wifi reception in the room was excellent. A heater helped warm the room a little but so far I've encountered while traveling in China no Chinese-made space heaters that do a really good job of warming up a cold room. On the other hand, this... More

I was a bit worried about this place because of the bathroom reviews but it was fine.  It was quiet when we were there but our room was clean and bright and generally warm. The view of the city is really cool.  There were a few common areas all of which were nice plus they had a cafe and excellent... More

We found Lete to be a very average hostel - but is has potential to be so much better! Rooms and showers are not particularly clean, but acceptable for the price. There's plenty of social space (bar, TV room etc.) but not much interest from the staff in making them enjoyable to use. Big drawback for us was the midnight... More

This youth hostel is fine but nothing particularly special. The set-up is a little odd - on the 16th floor of a residential tower block - but the location is good, with the Great Mosque and Muslim quarter within walking distance and only a couple of blocks from some nice cafes, restaurants and bars (definitely second the recommendation to hit...

Besides the somewhat dirty bathrooms, this is an excellent hostel. It's like a maze with all the nedrooms, living rooms and bathrooms but there's always a place you can relax. There is a very nice skyline at night. The staff is friendly, though English is limited. If you want western food, try the bacon pizza. This is the besy pizza... More

I wound up visiting Xining in August 2013 and Lete was the only hostel I could find online to stay at. China hostels can be a hit or miss, especially once you start heading North in China, but with Lete I was pleasantly surprised. Although the location was far from the train station (almost 40 minutes by bus), the hostel... More

We stayed at this hostel for a week while we explored the areas around and outside of Xining. I'd highly recommend it for anybody who is looking for an affordable way to stay a longer time. We loved that the hostel is walking distance from a market, the bus stop, and several coffee shops. Our rooms has free wifi, (and... More

Were lucky to find this place shortly after arriving in Xining. Were very pleased with our stay. Friendly English speaking staff. Showers with hot water and a few Western toilets always make the stay a bit more pleasant. There is a travel agency located right above Lete who are helpful in just offering advice around travel plans. Was our last... More

I've just come back from a week's trip introducing some friends to Xining and Qinghai, and we stayed at the Lete; the first night in a basic 2 bed room , the rest of the week in a suite. It's the first time in 5 years that I've been back to this city, and the biggest disappointment to me was... More

very good Location close to the Center and in a high Building. The youth Hostel is located at 15th and 16th Floor with a fantastic View of Xining, especially the Stadium. All sort of Rooms and Dormitaries are available. Think to book during the high Season (June July August) because the Hostel is full quickly. I paid a Bed in... More
