The hostel is very easy to find (with the directions), plenty of supermarts and restaurants around that area. The staff speaks little English but he understands how Hostelworld work. You have to make the bed yourself. The locker is not big enough to store my 40L backpack.


Too bad the breakfast in the morning was gone so quickly. Apart from that it's not bad, especially if you have a spot in the sunlight or inside the café/bar. Last time I stayed in a double room, that was nice, this time only in a 10 bed dorm, which just served its purpose of having a place to sleep and to put my stuff, so it was alright. Good price. Better bring your own bathroom slippers though, they didn't provide any and to use the toilet you might have to cross the wet floor from the shower.


very dirty, the windows in the room is broke and is impossible to lock the glass. So is very cold in the room, On the floor there is only cement very cold, the mattress of the bed is very thin and the computers was broke and it's impossible surf on internet. The common place is very dirty like the room and the toilet (that is outside,and in winter is very cold)


Biggest hostel in the area. Good value for money, spacious common room and terrace, and beautiful mountain around. Guest in dorm have to wait for hot water if last guest just bathed. 10-bed dorm is inevitably noisy at morning as it is next to reception and main gate.


Cleaniness need to be improved. The rubbish basket in the toilet should be cleaned more often. Apart from that, the hostel has good atmosphere. Long history and abundant beds make it an ideal place to meet travelers.


The toilette was very dirty; the air conditioner wasn't working (and outside it was very cold); the "wooden house" (木楼) where we slept was like a tool shed with a lot of holes that during the night let us feeling the wind and so it wasn't much different than sleeping outside... I don't know if the "normal" rooms are better but has been a really not pleasant stay... that made me catch a cold and cough too


We absolutely love staying at 4 Eyes. We've been back again since our first stay, and plan on returning. I've seen some complaints about it being out of the way, but we kind of liked how it was outside of the touristy West Lake area. Hangzhou is small enough that cabs are easy to take anywhere for cheap, so as far as being far away we never had that problem. Beautiful views from the bedroom and bathroom windows, and really cool character in the hostel. We can't wait to return!!
