UB Guesthouse & Hostel
Lonely Planet review
This long-time guesthouse has several rooms stretching around a Soviet-era apartment block. It’s clean (guests are required to remove their shoes upon entering) but the common room is a bit small and the place does get very busy in summer. The Korean-Mongolian management has plenty of experience in helping backpackers with logistics and trip planning. The location is ideal – between Sükhbaatar Sq and the State Department Store. Enter from the back of the building, behind Golomt Bank.

'UB Guesthouse & Hostel were a fantastic, friendly & well organised backpackers. They regularly ran day trips to the nearby Terelj National Park (popular for those on the infamous TransSiberian train who have only have a few days), and organised longer trips to the Gobi and Lakes in the 'midwest' of Mongolia. The trip to White Lake they organised for four of us was perfectly-timed, and the driver just brilliant! They also helped me get a ticket for the train back to Beijing (no mean feat I assure you). Services are simple, but more than adequate for backpackers.
The hosts Kim and Bobby are fantastic resources in a city where language barriers can sometimes make getting from A to B a bit tricky. And they pick you up from the train station which is a great help. '
'UB Guesthouse & Hostel is a quiet and clean place in the center of Ulaan Bataar. You can rent free movies and there is a free modest breakfast as well. The cost is $5 per night in a room with 4 dorm beds.
It is very hard to find it but Kim, the Korean owner, promises to pick you up from the train station or airport if you will e-mail or call him.
His Mongolian wife Bobby, helps a lot with any connection with the Mongolian bureaucracy (visa extension, or police registration). '
