Hostel Yak, Lhasa: "Popular Hostel in Lhasa" Tibet Hotel Tip by jinwenwang

Tibet Hotels: 39 reviews and 48 photos

I have never seen such "arrogant" HOSTEL before. Hostel Yak never accept reservation by whatever means. Who gets there first, who gets the bed. Probably it is due to the tourist season.

Hostel Yak has decoration of tibetan type...quite clean and enjoy the convenient location. Most of the standard rooms are pre-occupied by travel agency for foreign tour group.

Unique Qualities: This is the place where you can find lots of ad re jeep sharing or trip notice on the bulletin board.

Address: on main street
Theme: Hostel

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
