Liked: The staff was incredibly helpful and genuinely wanted you to have an enjoyable stay in Hohhot. Even when I opted not to book transportation to Ulaanbaatar through the hostel, they still provided information about how to book my ticket, a rough estimate of the price for each leg of the journey, and directions to get to the bus station. I went on the Grasslands tour through the hostel, and had a great time! The guides (JC and Guo) were very well informed, and taught us how to play Bones (like Jacks, but played with sheep bones), collect dung for a fire, and drink Mongolian milk tea. The only complaint I have is that the horseback riding was basically sitting on a horse while it walked to a fence and back (we weren't allowed to trot or canter). Other than this, it was a great tour!The hostel provides directions to the cities major attractions, a small map, and information on the different bus routes around the city. There are restaurants nearby on restaurant street, and the hostel is only about 20-30 minutes by bus to just about every attraction in the city. The other guests at the hostel were all really friendly. Even though I traveled to Hohhot alone, I met plenty of people to hang out with. I highly recommend this hostel!

Disliked: The bathrooms have the typical Chinese bathroom smell (there's no U-pipe to trap out the sewer gas). This is a common complaint in just about every hostel I've stayed in, and no major negative. The bathrooms themselves are very large, with hot water.

Liked: Really friendly, homey environment, very close to a street full of fantastic restaurants, and a few short bus rides away from a couple neat attractions.

Disliked: The bathroom smelled less than ideal, but the toilet both flushed and was western style, and the shower has hot water! If the hostel were full the two bathrooms probably wouldn't be enough...

Liked: We stayed for a week. The tours that are offered through the hostel are great. The overnight grassland was wonderful. It was a small group and really more like a homestay than a tour. Our guide gave us insight into Mongolian culture and lifestyle. The tour to the Geat Wall was also a highlight. A hike through the farmland and rolling hills of southern Inner-Mongolia and exploring the wall as it exits today along the edge of Shanxi. The staff was friendly and helpful. Airport and train station pick up is real plus.

Disliked: None

Liked: The moment walking into Anda Guesthouse, you did not feel like a guest but more like a long lost friend. The staff was amazingly helpful. They spoke English very well, and there were always around if you needed help with anything or just wanted to hang out. Inconvenient things like buying bus tickets or finding a good tour was made very easy because of the staff. One of my favorite memories was just to be able to hang out with the staff in the living room area and talk about Mongolian culture and watch gameshows (while drinking the reasonable priced Mongolian beer).

Disliked: While I do not personally need these things, some people might care that there is no air-conditioning in the rooms, and the rooms can not be locked from the outside (but there are lockers). Also it was originally incredibly difficult to find (took me 3 different cabs totaling 50 yuan to get there). They were not joking about that part (perhaps take the sometimes-free shuttle pick up).
