Zaya's Living Area
Our family-owned guesthouse, formerly Zaya's Hostel, has been in business since 1995. We strive to offer you the comfort and service of a private room guest house for the price of a hostel. A clean, comfortable, safe and friendly environment is our top priority.

In 2011 we added a second suite of guest accomodations in a nearby building, and in 2014-2015, both have been completely renovated. In both Zaya #1 and Zaya #2 we provide a high quality, friendly atmosphere with the style, comfort and service of an expensive hotel. Our newly renovated rooms offer a choice of single, double/twin and triple accommodations with semi-private (shared with one other room) or en-suite baths. Spacious, modern common areas will provide you with opportunities to meet other travelers and organize adventures or group tours.
