We enjoyed staying in a private room with a bathroom on the 15th floor. It was clean and spacious. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly and the location is great. On our way back we accidentally booked the apartment on the 13th floor and wasn't able to change our reservations. The girl at the front desk said it was... More

I was there in September with a group of 10 people. We stayed here twice. First we had dormitories because all the rest was fully booked. 5 days later when we came back from Labrang I had booked suites. Dormitories are ok. Suites are great, you can sleep with 3 people in there. Good location, nice atmosphere. There is a... More

this is one of the most convenience located lodgings in Xining. where all staffs speaks prefect English and helpful to give you directions. There is also a great cafe (Lete cafe) where you can get a decent pizza, coffee and locally brewed cold beer. They are the best source for finding more info on traveling this region and neighbor provinces.

During summer it is very difficult to find an affordable hotel in Xining. The price of all hotels almost doubles as domestic tourists head to Xining, a staging ground for broader trips to the Kunbum Monastery and Qinghai Lake. As such, it is hard to get good value for money during this time. Lete is one exception to this. The... More

I am using Lete Youth Hostel many years for clients who are on their budget trip plan. It can be preferred starting from a bed (sharing room with 4-6 beds), private rooms and deluxe rooms at any lower cost. But the rooms are really clean and neat. The most interesting part is the cafe house, which on resides on it's16th... More

The rooms are clean. The restaurant sells passable western breakfast, if you are suffering food shock. Service is slow. It is well located, with lots of foreigners and staff to get travel advice from. Lots of good food in the neighbourhood. Kids enjoyed the pool table. Basically a back packer hostel.

We stayed three nights in a room with a private bathroom. The best thing about this hostel was the helpful staff - we had a lot of questions about travelling in Qinghai and they were patient with all of them. However, because of the negatives, we wouldn't go back if we returned to Xining. Our bathroom was never properly cleaned,... More

Do not book the basic twin room, since this is a very small room with a single bulk for 110 RMB with no private bathroom. No towels are provided, map of Xining only to be bought. Food is expensive, we didn't try, outside there are many cheaper and better restaurants to eat. Good thing is the laundry service and the... More

Stayed here in the family suite and was not disappointed. The hostel has all that you could need for a good stay. The staff was helpful, there is a travel agency upstairs to help get more train tickets, etc. TV and wifi were great. This hotel is on the 15th floor of an apartment building, which was not clear to... More
