Kashgar Pamir Youth Hostel
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Chinese woman and I met Chinese man and American man travellers in Tashkurgan K2 Hostel and travelled by bus to this hostel together where all kinds of info was available; flight, bus and train schedules, people heading in all directions who wanted travel companions, food, the whole works. Within two hours I was heading off to Kyrgyzstan with two hitchhikers, learning the ropes from them, then able to do it on my own. I đidn't spend the night but I would have been so lost without connections made at this hostel. The hostel wasnt upset that I đidn't spend the night. Helpful!

Recently stayed here 4 nights. Pamir is in a great location overlooking the mosque and not far from the stop for the airport bus shuttle (and they pick you up at Pamir's door for the return journey). We were travelling as a group of 4 so were able to occupy one room which had it's own bathroom (squat toilet and shower over the loo). Unfortunately the room was extremely dirty and had not had a decent clean in some time. The state of the toilet and basin was, in a word, 'unhealthy'. In their defense - we did point this out and it was attended to while we were out later that day. Only other gripe is the pillows are the 'buckwheat' variety - hard as rocks. We ended up buying pillows at a market opposite the mosque. Cookie - who is on duty most of the time - and the other staff (but especially Cookie) are all friendly and helpful. The breakfast menu (especially the muesli) is delicious, the coffee good, and the rooftop area is a great place to watch the activity in the busy area below. Another bonus is one of the best ice cream shops is just a few doors to the right of the steps leading to the hostel.

We had read the prior reviews and decided to book a room. What a great decision! We got a room with a 'king size' bed, which is really just a massive raised, brick bed, and an attached bath. There is a kettle in the room, too. The room is tiny, but all other aspects of Pamir hostel make it worth it. The English speaking staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. There is a shared kitchen, WiFi, a clean shared bath area (if dorms), laundry (only 10yuan/load!), and a cafe. The dorms and other rooms appeared clean and tidy from what I could see. There are lockers available, too. The balcony is its star, though. There is an amazing, large balcony with tables, seats, even a swing, overlooking the mosque and streets. It's just a fantastic place to sit and enjoy the life of Kashgar.
I highly recommend this place for its atmosphere.

Room Tip: The rooms on the inside of the building stay dark in the morning, making sleeping late easy! The out...

I was pretty exhausted after having come all the way from Pakistan back in July. I heard about this newly opened place from a traveller on KKH and it was one of the best hostels I stayed at throughout the whole trip! Amazing coffee and fantastic ice-cream downstairs. I also met some of the most amazing travellers while I stayed here.

we are on our bicycle trip from Germany/Austria to New Zealand. after 12 days of tough cycling over the mountains in Kyrgyztan we arrived in Kashgar. the hostel is located close to the Id-Kah-Mosque. it is simple furnitured, but clean. Toilets and showers are cleaned every day. free Wifi and Computer. several dishes are available.
Due to a food poising in a restaurant close to the hostel we stayed for 18 days there. the owners and their staff were so helpful and friendly! we will stay now, due to visa-problems and big cold in China, now in Bishkek and we will be back in this hostel in March 2013.

Great location in Kashgar, with three great owners that all can speak English. They are also able to assist with booking trips (bus, train and private tours).

Room on the street side has a great outlook over the Mosque and square, but are very dusty from the street traffic and a bit noisy. Room on the back side are quieter. Some rooms have AC, which is a must. Private rooms have a toliet and shower. There is one room that has a western style toliet...

They also have a cafe and serves great coffee and the food is not bad either..

Awesome owners that can speak Chinese and English. Very hardworking ( saw them working all day!)and ready to share information with travelers.
Hanging out at night was nice while drinking tea from their cafe and enjoying the night view with the Idkah mosque at sight.
They also installed air cons in room while i was there. (With the hot weather it was a relief!)
and they have 2 cute kittens!

The only flaw was the walk up to the hostel was not flattering.
