I was eeally disqppointed once a time with this hostel international affiliated hostel. Maybe it´s because they try to stick up with a very low price policy or something, so it ends up with a boring and unhelping staff. Always wondering on their phones watching videos, you always seem to disturb them. They werent able to tell me a suggestion of a restaurant, neither to how get to Huashan mountain in the good way. It s one of the main attraction of the city. The boss should look at his staff.

Is a good and recommendable hostel! Staff is friendly and they offer you city maps. Breakfast is not included. Had the impression that the room skipper left my bathroom more filthy than it had been before. So I decided to hang out the don't disturb shield for the rest of my stay. But to sum up a good choice ;)

The hostel is based in a nice area of town. The food served was good, but the lighting was so dark you could barely see and this caused headaches. My room was based on the ground floor behind the bar which was nice and quiet. But the toilet which we had to use was the main toilet in the bar area. There was work being done in the hostel one morning they were drilling then a big gush of water, workmen panicking, when i got up there was a big deep puddle in the room. opps

The personal was nice (very helpful while booking tours), the hostel was clean and very well located. It felt like I was in a hotel not a hostel. In sum a great place to stay. The only but is that the common spaces are a little bit too dark

It is an okay Hostel. The staff has a limited English, but they are able to help you with many things anyway. The dorms are cheap and the beds are fine. On the third floor you can dry your laundry, but also sit and enjoy the sun, it was really nice. You can log on WIFI on all floors and it works fine. I did not try the restaurant located on the ground floor, but the food seemed delicious.

Even though they played far too much Taylor swift and Britney Spears in the bar area, we found this to be a great hostel and would not hesitate booking again! Friendly staff and clean, fun setting.
