The guest houses in Lhasa or youth hostels in Lhasa are the most popular type among the backpackers. Here we recommend Phuntsok Kasang International Youth Hostel, Dongcuo International Youth Hostel and Snow Lotus. They provide economic standard doubles and triples with attached rest room as well as 8-bed to 12-bed rooms. The cheapest bunk can be 35 yuan/night, including a simple Chinese style breakfast. The guest houses are the best choice for those who have limited tour budget. All of the above three are located around the Barkhor. It is also very convenient except that credit cards are not accepted.
