Lonely Planet review

This family-run place has a fun, youthful vibe, with colourful walls, two lounges and lots of soft sofas. Dorms and private rooms are clean and comfortable and the bathrooms are kept tidy. On the downside, it can get very crowded in summer and just trying to get some face time with the manager could require getting in a long line. This has led to some mixed reviews by guests. It’s inside a courtyard about 100m east of the State Department Store.

Our independent authors have visited Golden Gobi and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Ulaanbaatar.

Description provided by property

Welcome to the family-owned Golden Gobi guesthouse. When you’re here, you’ll feel like home. That’s because Ogie (who was a guide for 9 years) and her family are originally from the Gobi Desert, and maintain the tradition of the region’s famous nomadic friendliness. The guesthouse is suitable for all travelers, including families with children, groups, and individual backpackers. We offer particularly great deals for groups.

The location is unbeatably central, with convenient access to all the main attractions and services in UB within 2-5 minutes walking distance: museums, the post office, central square (Sükhbaatar Square), supermarkets, ATMs, bus stations, monasteries and Peace Avenue (Main Street).

We provide FREE transportation from the train station, and offer breakfast, all day coffee and tea, Wi-Fi, lockers, a fully equipped kitchen, linens, Internet, city maps, etc.—all FREE. We have spacious common rooms, mixed dorms, twin, double, single, and family rooms available to our guests.

Our staff carries various tourism certifications and has exceptional experience arranging and guiding trips around Mongolia. We are the BEST in Mongolia when it comes to arranging vegetarian meals and tours tailored to fit the interests and time constraints of our guests. We support nomadic families, and have cordial, personal relationship with nomads across country.
Our goal is to provide comfortable accommodation and unforgettable, yet safe, journeys, with a reliable and honest team—so that you can focus on exploring the local culture and nomadic lifestyle, and our beautiful home country.
