Tsetsegee and staff are absolutely amazing! They helped set-up my four day tour and arranged all transportation upon arrival. I had short notice as I was on a stopver on the Trans-Siberian, but they helped set up a tour to the Blue Lake, camping in tents and Terelj National Park, camping in a ger with horseback riding! The guides and...

I have been at this hostel a few times during my 2 months in Mongolia. It was a wonderful base in the city with good prices and a very nice and helpful team. During my last week in the country I was recovering from a concussion, Tsetsegee has taken care of me as if I'd be her child. Honestly, her...

Mrs Tsetsegee helped us organize a 9 day journey to the Gobi desert. We communicated via email and she was responsive and helpful throughout. A special mention must be made to Shijire and Jigden, our guide and driver throughout our trip. They made the long drives fun and insightful. They took great care of us throughout the 9 days.

Regardless of the spelling, she is the most helpful lady in UB! I originally wanted to rate 4 but my husband got on me because they always went ABOVE and BEYOND. He's right but only this once! Hehe. The owner and staff are amazing. The hostel is ok. The space is small and a little on the grubby side but...

While I didn't stay at Idre Hostel, I booked a 7 day tour to the great white lake from (5 to 11 August) as I had a limited number of days in Mongolia. Idre was also recommended for tours by our friend who had booked with them before. Arrangements for our tour was made easy via the website and emails...

We stayed at Zaya Hostel for 4 nights and since they were booked out we had to stay at Idre for the final night of our stay in UB. Perhaps I was spoilt by my experience at Zaya but I was disappointed with Idre esp since it is rated well on LP and other sites. I had booked the double...

Rooms are small, too small for the number of beds crammed into them. Breakfast is minimal and the kitchen tiny. Take any quote, even if in writing, with a pinch of salt. My bill was 10% more when I went to pay. The showers in the cellar are only 5' 8" high so not suitable if you're over 6' tall...

We consider the number of beds in the room and downstairs showers. But we do have showers with standard height in the main bathroom. The rest of your complaint doesn't really match to the reality. We never charge bills over. Thanks for reviewing us and stayed with us!

We've came to the hostel to plan our trip and to prepare for the trip in Mongolia. The staff is very helpful and friendly! The rooms are clean and comfortable, the showers are great! It feels like a home:)
