Huar &Lanzhou - Open up your Gate to Western China
Huar is the first youth hostel established in the centre of Lanzhou, an ancient city on the Silk Road. Given its special location, Lanzhou has convenient railway communications that connects you to the most famous places in western China like Dunhuang, Xinjiang and mysterious Tibet.

Huar's Features - a LOFT Hostel with Modern Theatre and Library
Situated in Lanzhou Creative Industry Park, Huar is a stylish LOFT hostel surrounded by artists and designers. We have regenerated the industrial buildings of the 70s with a theatrical style of coloring and created a perfect common area with high ceiling for sunbathing and day dreaming. A collection of 10,000 books and films concerning Arts, theatre and modern culture is being established. All you have to do is to get a cup of fresh coffee and enjoy your day in slow motion.

Huar has a double life. It's not only a hostel but also a theatre. On stage we narrate stories inspired from real life. Down stage we are living in your own version of "On the Road". The two lives intercross, sharing the same dream that motivates us.

Prices are per person per night.

Located Near

Huar is very close to all major attractions in Lanzhou. During the day you can visit the White Pagoda Temple which provides vantage point to watch the sunrise and view the winding course of Yellow River. At the foot of White Pagoda Hill, you can see that the first iron bridge (Zhong Shan Qiao) built on Yellow River stands still as it did 100 years ago. You can also visit Gansu Museum which presents how Silk Road took place in the development of the great civilization of China.
