This homey place almost feels more like a boutique guesthouse than a hostel. Rooms are individually styled, some with traditional Mongolian furniture. It has a cosy, traditional atmosphere, but some parts can be a little dim. The location is central and quiet. It’s run by the Lotus Children’s Centre, an NGO that helps orphaned children and employs Mongolians who used to live in the orphanage.
The only downside is the low bathroom:room ratio. An annexe, in an apartment away from the centre, takes overflow if the main block is full.
