Somebody had a good idea to open a hostel at a house away from the centre to create homestay-like atmosphere but this somebody must have not visited this place for a long time or must have changed their mind. It completely lacks the atmosphere and it seems nobody cares about how the guests feel. it's also not a travellers hub at all - there was only 1 other guest staying apart from us.
just to give you a few examples: you enter via a side door through the garbage area. Main entrace is not open. Breakfast is a joke - 3 pieces of old bread and one boiled egg... We stayed in a 'soviet room' which apart from few soviet accents had some teenager-like sentences about what love is printed all around the walls... ensuite bathroom had no shower (why would a guest need a shower in an ensuite bathroom?), just a sink and the toilet. But anyway the latter was not working which you learn about having already used it... Windows were cleaned in the last decade...
on the good side though the laundry was cheap - 1.5usd per wash, wifi was reliable (but only in the common room) and our room was spacious.
all in all it's a completely acceptable option but we were lucky to receive other travellers recomendation on different place to stay so we won't have to come back to Kyrgyz 'Host' when re-visiting Bishkek.
