The whole day you won't see any tourists in town but as soon as you come to this hostel you will find loads of people to share your trip with. Decent clean hostel, the owner is really helpful, nothing too much trouble.The owner speaks English. This can be helpful if he is there. He has a second hostel in Bishkek so he is the half time in Bishkek.
