I would recommend this hostel only for travelers who is interested in to go to Gobi. Independent travelers who doesn’t have budget to take a tour, they aren’t welcomed there. Anyway, thank you to meet my friends and me in a bus station and for delicious breakfast
We spent in total a week at the Golden Gobi and we cannot praise it enough. Brilliant location, amazing staff and lovely clean accommodation. We highly recommend the Golden Gobi and definitely stay again.
Nothing it was all excellent
Location is great. Staff so friendly and helpful
Arrived there early in the morning in the middle of winter, walked at -33C from the railway station to the hostel, when I arrived my beard was frozen, my camera was frozen, I didn't feel my hands anymore. A friendly english speaking tour guide/receptionist opened the door. Before checking-in I asked for the toilet, when I come back a FREE BREAKFAST (fried egg, toast and tea) was on the table. I got warm, I regained strength, I already felt at home. And then I checked in. It turned out they offer FREE PICKUP FROM THE RAILWAY STAITION, just tell them when you arrive. About the infrastructure, there is a simple, clean kitchen (I never used it for more than hot water/microwave), a toilet and rooms upstairs, 2 more modern toilets and showers downstairs plus a TV room downstairs aswell. Every room was fitted with a self locking door with access code so your belongings are relatively safe. For the entrance door you don't get a key, you just ring the bell and 24h frontdesk will open the door. I had 10 days in UB but I knew I would go on a tour and Golden Gobi does offer tours custom made for you. If you find other people in the hostel to join you, the price p.p. Will get cheaper of course. So you sit around a map on a table with la mama (tour manager) and a tour guide and you tell them which places you want to see. They put a cross on the map and suggest places nearby and things to do. They then connect the points, tell you how many days it takes, la mama puts some magical numbers into her calculator and gives you a total daily price, driver+fuel+tour guide+food+accomodation(basically everything) included. For our group of 6 for 9 days that was about US$ 46/day in winter (off season). They use nomadic families for accomodation whenever possible. This is a great cultural experience which comes with some traditions, one of which is that you bring a little gift. We just bought a bottle of vodka and some chocolate for kids each before departure.
Good location, walking distance to supermarket & state department store; tons of foods selection; very helpful & warm welcoming staff members!
