Welcome to the family-owned Golden Gobi guesthouse. When you’re here, you’ll feel like home. That’s because Ogie (who was a guide for 9 years) and her family are originally from the Gobi Desert, and maintain the tradition of the region’s famous nomadic friendliness. The guesthouse is suitable for all travelers, including families with children, groups, and individual backpackers. We offer particularly great deals for groups.

The location is unbeatably central, with convenient access to all the main attractions and services in UB within 2-5 minutes walking distance: museums, the post office, central square (Sükhbaatar Square), supermarkets, ATMs, bus stations, monasteries and Peace Avenue (Main Street).
