Well that's about all i could say about this Guesthouse. Ambiance is a bit eerie for my liking. Bathrooms are average and the shower is very low pressure. You need to on it for around 30mins to an hour to get hot water and if it is kept on it will give out a weird sound. Rooms are decent. There's lounge area where you can watch TV and chat with the staff there. They are quite friendly. The place is a bit hard to find but it's near to shops and food.

We picked this place due to the recommendation in the Lonely Planet and the tours they organize.
But first we were told the free train station pick up is only available for one train station in the city, which of course was not ours. Once we got there we went on the trip to the dessert. The guide (if you can call him that) did not explain anything and if you asked he sometimes even ignored you. The only thing he said was “arrive” whenever we stopped anywhere on the way. Once we have got the camp in the dessert there where two tents and a lot of trash everywhere. There was nothing organized to do there like hiking or at least explaining what the buildings in the distance where. Well the four power plants we knew what they were but they did not give us any dessert feeling. At night it was freezing cold and we made a fire. The guide and what seemed to be his boyfriend which he brought along burned plastic and stuff even though we asked them not to do it. Afterwards they went to bed first and when we went to bed everyone took one of the sleeping bags which they had put out. Everyone was freezing that night. The next morning when we told the guide he just said “why didn’t you take another one?” We felt like punching him because he had not told us there was more than one per person. The camels on which we were riding back to our car (50minutes) were not treated nice they even got kicked by the owners. Back in the Hostel we hoped they had booked tickets for us to leave the town that night, as we had asked them to before. But they told us there was no availability and we would have to stay an extra night. Interestingly we got tickets when we went to the train station ourselves. It seemed they just wanted to charge us for an extra night. Over all it felt for everyone in the group like a big rip off.

The place could be better, it's hard to find (leave the hospital behind you and look for a little street on the left). The staff helped me with the booking of my next hostel.They speak English. The rooms are ok but the bathrooms are dirty.

I took grassland tour (1day+1night): the location (only very good point) was very nice: 2yurts in the middle of a field,( not an ugly yurt-hotel )
But water was not included (2yuan)and the guide got mad when we told her that we were acpecting tea during the 3 meals...

If you take the horse-ride, ask for special socks (part the mongolian boots) and a headprotection. They won't give it if you don't ask

And be prepared to pick up cow-pies to make the fire!! that part could be funny but not without gloves...They will tell you that you can wash your hands later, but .... in a little bucket of rain water, without soap...and don't forget to bring very warm clothes, it's really freezing at night .

We stayed here twice, with a visit to the grasslands (not arranged by Anda) separating. Our first visit we made a confirmed booking a week prior, and we were impressed by the free pick up from the train station. Once arriving at the guest house we were told that our booking had been "forgotten" and that we would not be able to stay in the rooms we requested. Upon arriving for our second visit (again a week booking ahead), we were told there weren't enough rooms and we were forced to change. The staff are so-so for helping out, the manager's attitude runs hot and cold. The hostel is homely if not a little overcrowded but has a good atmosphere and decor in it. Rooms were not great but not bad either. Having two toilet/showers and two more toilets among the 9 rooms and 4 dorms meant that mornings were waiting around for availability. The Internet worked around 5% of the time during our stay, apparently due to the weather, however some days were clear blue sky. As it seems this is the only travellers' hostel in Hohhot, the hostel is saved by the vibe of the folks staying in it.

We stayed Anda guest-house one day. Originally our plan is staying 3 to 4 nights. and go to the grassland and dessert. But they say “Because of too many people, you can’t go.” Although we reserved and send a E-mail before 1 month. But they didn’t tell us any exact answer to the end. we can’t have a exact plan so we just go to the China. And they send a train ticket that can’t ride because of our arriving time to china. We miss the train. We have to buy new train ticket.

Arrived in Hohhot, they’re going to come. So we wait about 1 hour. But later they say “We can’t go. Take a taxi!”.

We arrived Anda guest-house. But the manager didn’t care us. And she doesn’t check our passport. She just say “Go to the empty bedroom. You’ll be tired. Take a rest first.” Very unprofessional. But We think very friendly. Because We’re very tired, fatigued and exhausted because of long travel. And we didin’t know checking a passport is normal. But later we know that it’s very suspicious situation.

After taking a rest, we out of the room and consult our dessert and grassland plan and money. Doing consulting, she is very unkind. Our English or Chinese is not so good. When we can’t catch words she is irritated. And she receive a money including ticket fee despite missing a train because of time. 150元

After going to the bedroom, my friend lost a passport. Although bag include a cam-cord-er and purse, only passport are missing.

We say “Our friend lost a passport” to the manager. But she didn’t treat important. And she care about anything. She only interested in money. She only kind when coming to get a money. And only kind to a Westerner.

Fortunately, we met Korean student studying in Shanghai in the hostel. We talk to her about our situation. And she say Anda guest house is little bit odd. And she feels discriminative treatment too. She helps us to talk our situation to the guest-house staff.

They say not report to the police near the hostel. Go to the Hohhot station and report it there.

We met a Mongolian tour guide. We say our situation and our hostel name. They’re face seems to understand what’s happening and they see us very pitiful. After talking with her, We are intuited Anda guesthouse is stealing my friend’s passport. So we can’t stay any longer. Because we are little bit scary and very uncomfortable. We can’t fall fast asleep. We discuss our situation until about 2:00 a.m

So next day, we leave Anda guest-house immediately and go to the Hotel near the Hohhot station.

And Back to the korea, now I understand what happens occur in hostel. After seeing the other reviews, I’m sure Anda guest-house is really strange hostel.
