The manager could speak English and was extremely helpful. The evening meal was healthy tasty and low price breakfast great. We had hot water showers in our double room in the new part
The courtyard amazing place to sit eat and chat. my highlight was the pet sheep penned up in courtyard fondly fed and let out for a wander each day.

This was one of our favourite hostels in china. Our double room was comfortable with good aircon. We stayed in the newer building a few doors down from the reception area. It was lovely, bright, clean and quiet.

The shared space is great. A good place to meet other travellers and a great atmosphere to sit around, have a drink, relax and chat with people. The drinks are pretty good value and there is a small kitchen you can use to cut up fruit, make salad etc.

The staff are really helpful and friendly. We did a trip of the KKH for a few days and booked a room for our return. When we arrived back there wasn't a room for us (someone got sick and couldn't check out). In the end the manager sorted it out and found a private ensuite room for us.

Brilliant location in the old town with lots to see, do and eat right on the doorstep.

If I had to be very very picky I'd say the rooms are a little small. And like everywhere I've stayed on china so far the showers don't drain properly so it's easy to flood the shower.

Would highly recommend. We were sad to leave.

Absolutely loved my time at this hostel, really felt like home! I stayed in a private room, which was much better quality than expected! Practically brand new...

Pros:

- Location: heart of old town, walking distance to main sights, markets and old town alleys

- The vibe: really relaxed, super-chilled, great for socialising and solo travellers

- Staff: super friendly, literally went out of their way to help. A few people got some food poisoning and the staff arranged to make Chinese porridge for our tummies. Really thoughtful!

- Travel advice: loads of advice, helped us organise a vehicle for Karakoram Highway

-Food: amazing value breakfast, cheap and quality food sold at the hostel

-Laundry: cheap and easy!


Cons:
- wifi was a bit shakey, didn't reach the private rooms
- didn't have hot water in the mornings in the private rooms


Overall, I ended up staying longer than expected in Kashgar because of this really special hostel. Couldn't recommend it more!

Stayed here for a week during a trip around the Kaklamakan desert. Loved the outside seating where I could drink tea in the mornings. Courtyard facilitates social networking amongst travelers, and makes for a helpful environment for solo travelers. Great location surrounded by plenty of things to do and places to eat.

Enjoyed my few days here. Depending on demand, they have different rooms
available, with attached bathroom, some with amazingly kitch decoration.
A relaxed courtyard, with travellers heading to interesting places. Run by friendly
& helpful guys. & the plus of the nearby markets in the older part of town.

I stayed at Kashgar Old City Hostel for around 5 nights and would go back there any day. The staff are very welcoming and could not be more helpful. They speak English and are happy to provide any local information and can arrange very well priced trips to various places outside Kashi e.g. Tashkurgan. I stayed in a single room which was basic, but clean and comfortable. It was great to have wifi, cheap washing facilities, well priced excellent meals available on order, hot showers, and a huge courtyard where everyone hangs out to swap information and travellers tales. I believe the hostel us expanding and the new area is apparently lovely too. Excellent value and the location could not be more central!

This place was fantastic. Good rooms, friendly and helpful staff, close walk to everything in town and easy access to buses and taxis for the animal markets on the Sundays.

Nice courtyard to catch up with everyone in the mornings and evenings.
