This is my second time here in Mongolia, and Zaya 2 Hostel is by far the best place to stay in Ulanbattar. It is located in the heart of Ulanbattar and really feels like a home away from home. It is very clean, and convenient with free high-speed WIFI access, a computer for public use, and a relaxing lounge room... More

My wife and I stayed at Zaya Hostel from July 6th to July 13th, 2016. Without a doubt the best hostel throughout our world travels. The Zaya is the cleanest place with the friendliest staff one could envision. Another plus is a breakfast of juice, cereal, egg, toast and coffee or tea; not a buffet but personally prepared by either... More

Zaya's is located just off Peace Avenue and is thus very central, about 10 minutes walk from Chinggis Square. The rooms and sheets are clean, the wifi works perfectly fine. The staff is very helpful with any and all requests and a free light breakfast is provided, which I found to be perfectly adequate. All in all, would definitely stay... More

Zaya's hostel is located in the center of Ulannbaatar Mongola. We had a double en-suite room which was excellent. The hotel is manned 24 hours a day and so guests are let in/out via the entry door system. Although we had a minor problem of not being met at the station (a private taxi was meant to meet us) we...

I only really touched base here at the beginning and end of my trip here to UB, but each time service was excellent. The managers are both very organised, solving any small problems that arise and generally ensure that you are looked after. The breakfast is OK, enough to get you going. Good facilities to do your own thing with... More

The hostel is clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The service is excellent and the owner is very friendly and speaks perfect English. The breakfasts are also very nice and drop off/pick up easy to arrange. Location is great for exploring the main sites.
