“A real Uygur hostel in Kashgar!”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

This hostel is the only typical Uygur accommodation you can still find in Kashgar.
It is charming and truly historical. Its location is right in the center of the Old town. It is animated during the day but calm at night.
The rooms are simple but clean although it is exclusively shared bathrooms. The staff is welcoming, nice and helpful.
It is definitely the hotel for the backpackers who look for real local experience.

We travelled the Silk Road from Beijing to Kashgar and this was by far our favourite place to stay. A peaceful courtyard in the traditional Uighur style, with balconies outside the rooms and a relaxed lounge filled with large floor cushions downstairs.

Everything was spotless and the owners were so helpful and welcoming. They gave us excellent advice for visiting Kashgar; and when we were tired one evening, put on a film - just what we needed. We watched 'The Kite Runner', much of which was filmed in the Old Town. When one of us was ill, they brought medicine and insisted that she remain as long as she wanted in the room, despite us already having checked out and paid.

Best of all was that the hostel is right in the heart of the Old Town and being there was the ideal way to explore. Prior to the trip I searched everywhere for hotels: everything else was in the new town and a variation on a concrete and glass tower block. We could get that anywhere and furthermore, Kashgar's other hotels were a little unappealing.

Stay at Kashgar Old City hostel if you want to really experience the old town and understand the fast eroding Uighur culture.

N.B. This review should read April 2010 but that date was unavailable.

One of the rare places that lie within the heart of Kashgar old city, Kashgar Old City Hostel is a great place to stay. Not only has it nothing to do with the other gigantic (and expensive) hotels outside the old city, which are not different from any other chinese city and really lack personality (I have visited some of them), but it is also managed by charming people who, despite running a low-budget place, know very well what service means and how to make your stay comfortable.
Kashgar Old City Hostel is a youth hostel, so do not expect room service or private bathroom. But if you are ready to overcome this, you will find simple and neat rooms and dorms, surrounding a quiet courtyard. The whole one-floor building is built in a traditional ouïghour style where you can really feel the spirit of Kashgar, as you can as soon as you set foot outside.
In a few words, if you are looking for a simple, authentic, cheap and nice place, chose this one !
