Lete Youth Hostel is a guesthouse in Xining for all-age travelers, operating since April 2007. This hostel is centrally located in the downtown area of Xining with many local and western restaurants close by.

Our aim is to provide a warm and cozy place for backpackers and travelers. Our hostel is on the 16th floor and has a wonderful view of the city and scenery surrounding.

We try our best to give you a home away from home with several sitting areas: In the Cafe & Bar, there is a pool table and a comfortable wooden Kang; In the TV area, there is a large TV with a DVD player, the cable TV service and the satellite TV service available. We also have self-serviced kitchen and laundry room.

We have a great variety of rooms; from spacious doubles with a fantastic view to inexpensive dorm rooms and nice apartments with a kitchenette. Throughout the hostel are large sitting areas with comfortable seating, refreshments available and very friendly, helpful English-speaking staff. Upstairs you will find the office of Tibetan Connections- a travel agency which can help you get Lhasa permits, train & air tickets and arrange trekking in Tibetan areas.

Prices are per person per night.
