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.

it's more like a hotel than a hostel,so imagine that for a cheap price you can get a hotel facilities.the hostel looks very good with big rooms and a lot of space to hang out.the bar serves amazing food and drinks for very good price.the staff speaks very good english and everybody is super friendly. the hostel is very close to the city centre and near the subway station. will definitely recommend it.

I was in a private room on the 6th floor. Easily the cleanest place I've stayed in china. The food is good however a little expensive compared to other hostels I've stayed at. However turn left out of the hostel and there's a really good cheap restaurant 200 m along the street. The bar staff don't seem to have any problem with you bringing in snacks or drinks. There's a few wee stores just outside the hostel. Overall a really good hostel. Only point would be people do smoke in the bar.

A very nice hostel for the price. The rooms, bathrooms and common area were clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly. The staff was okay though not as fluent in English as I hoped. The directions to the bus to see the terra cotta soldiers were okay but it is hard to find the buses in the city, though once you find the long distance bus station getting to the soldiers is easy.

Fun atmosphere, good english speaking staff and the breakfast is pricey for China (20 RMB) but very good. Plus they had ping-pong for me to play.

The hostel was very nice! The people very polite and helpful. The food at the restaurant was delicious. My only complaint is that the food came out very slow. I was with my mom and aunt and it took 20 minutes per dish to come out. An eternity! And one at the time would come out instead of all of them at the same time.
