Dōngcuò International Youth Hostel

Hostel in Lhasa

This hostel attracts mainly Chinese backpackers, though a few foreign travellers find their way here. Rooms are smallish but well maintained, with wooden floors and crisp white sheets, but the graffiti-covered walls beloved by Chinese backpackers add to the slightly grim, institutional feel. The hot water is best at night. Prices drop in April and rise in July and August.
