SUKHBAATAR: 01 - Gobi Tours Guesthouse


What I like most about this guesthouse is the setup. When you open the door there is a mini foyer. Straight ahead are the kitchen and the bathroom. To the right is the door to the office. To the left is the big room with four double bunk beds and two single beds next to each veranda door. There's also a nine-door metal locker, a sofa, a refrigerator, and a multi-purpose dining table. The atmosphere is like a slumber party in your living room, if your living room had a total of ten beds. There is no privacy because of this setup, but did I tell you I only paid USD8 a night? With the current exchange rate that won't even amount to 350 pesos.


What I don't like about this guesthouse is the fact that the people in charge are almost always nowhere to be found. True to the idea of a slumber party where the people in authority are away (your parents), there is no one to run to if something goes wrong. For one, the bathroom light ceased to function the next morning. It only got fixed the morning of my checkout. Speaking of the bathroom, there's just one. And there are ten of you. The two beds by the veranda, one of which was what I got, don't have their own electric sockets. This meant "borrowing" those of either bunk bed beside or in front of my bed. Other than this I have no more complaints. I actually liked the place a lot, and it would have been perfect had these quirks been avoided. And yes, I'll check in there again if ever I come back to UB.
