Our Ulaanbaatar homestay experience is hosted by our Tuya – our brilliant manager and part of our team of EL female trip assistants. She is also a qualified English teacher.
Most travellers to Mongolia are keen to experience the warmth of traditional Mongolian hospitality. All of the trips we offer either include homestays (or the option of) with the rural families that we work in long-term local community partnership with. However, Ulaanbaatar is home to approximately 50% of Mongolia’s population and our Ulaanbaatar homestay experience allows you to live Ulaanbaatar as a destination, not just visit it.
Yes, there’s a wealth of hotels and hostels in Ulaanbaatar and yes, there’s a wealth of properties on Airbnb. But why not do something a little different? This is more than just handing over keys. This is someone’s home and therefore a real home-from-home, not a profit-making experience that we advertise on multiple sites.
As Tuya’s guest, you stay in her home together with her husband Nyamaa and her three (delightful) sons Anand, Tulga, and Burentegsh. Home is a two-bedroom apartment in the (Narnii Khoroolol district (Нарны хороолол). It’s around a 30-40 minute walk on a well-walked road to a variety of Ulaanbaatar’s beating arteries. (We can also arrange a private transfer if you go out exploring and want to return later in the evening.)
As well as sharing a meal with Tuya and her family, you’ll also get a more personal insight into Ulaanbaatar and its local culture that other forms of accommodation simply can’t offer. Be prepared though to do some informal English conversation with Tuya’s sons – especially Burentegsh.
You book knowing this is a shared family space – not your own private en-suite room. This homestay would be suitable for solo travellers or a couple or two friends travelling together. There is a bathroom inside the apartment but it is shared by the family. The price is 150,000 MNT per night including b/fast and a simple dinner (130,000 MNT if you are a solo traveler).
