There were a lot of hair in the shower, I could almost make a wig (no exaggeration). They say you can see the sign of the hotel easily, but at night its not that easy its not even on. When I found the hostel I tought it was closed eventough it says its 24 hours reception. They dont have tourist map they simply tell you to buy one in the store in front.
This is basically the worst place I've ever stayed. Staff was useless. They lost my reservation, tried to get me to pay extra, then finally put me in a room in the basement. The building itself was soulless. A 4 story concrete monstrosity in the middle of what should have been a nice hutong neighborhood. But this hutong wasn't even nice. It was filthy and full of overpriced restaurants and brothels. All in all, like a nightmare replica of a Khao San Rd flophouse.

The room was underground. There was a leak under my bed, so it was always wet. We told the staff, but they just mopped it a bit... (it was still humid).
The single room i stayed in was really nice and the hotel location is quite good (20 min away from a subway station that is well located) but the staff was the most unfriendly i've ever seen! Telling me how far it would take me to walk from the hotel to the subway almost killed them.... and asking them about where to take a shuttle bus back to the airport was just top much for them...
No towels for the shower- Staff NOT NICE- more like a cheap hotel than a hostel
