For an International youth hostel, I was expecting the staff to speak a little English, however when we checked in we had to do so using an online translator. Overall it was an average experience.

I had a good experience here and no problems.They had a well priced restaurant adjacent to the reception. The prices seemed reasonable.The hostel was clean.They could put asign on the main road as it is a little difficult to find if you are on your own.

We spend only one night in this hostel, has we were only passing by Changsha. We needed a relaxing place where pass a pleasant afternoon and night, and that's was the case! Great garden and living room.

Took 30 minutes to check in because they couldn't find the key. Then he finally gave me one but 4 hours later at 6 am I was woken up demanding they key back! Staff did not speak any English. Not only that but I swear the toilets there have never been cleaned. Bad location to top it all off.

It's very hard to find and get there. It may offer more detailed location map.

Friendly staff. Really nice common areas, but not that nice WC and shower rooms. The location is good, easy to take the bus into downtown or to the train station (make sure to get to the right one though, speed trains departure from Changsha South!)

The staff was deffenetly the best part of my experience with the hostel. The rooms where very clean, and the atmosphere was excellent. Plus the food they serve is quite good too. I can recommend staying here!

Staff suddenly doesn't speak English after checking you in. Seems to be mainly Chinese travelers here smoking, spitting and yelling in the common room. Plus, there is really no reason for you to ever travel to Changsha. Typical Chinese mega city with nothing to see. If you can transit through without stopping for a night, do it.

Really great hostel. The newly renovated rooms are hotel-quality for backpacker/budget rates. The staff's English is OK. The location is a bit far from anything the tourists might want to do, but right on the city bus line which makes it easy to connect anywhere. Good place, highly recommended.

Absolutely first class. Very much like a European backpacker hostel. Cool decor, rooms are comfortable and clean, towels and shampoo etc provided. Staff are all great, the ones I met could speak at least basic English. Very helpful in helping to plan trip etc. Only complaint is the wifi only works in the main foyer. But as that is a nice place to hang out, it's no big deal.

While it was OK in most ways, the hostel room was not very clean, and had a worrying smell... I don't know if it was just the other guests in that room or not, but either way, this was the only hostel I've stayed in so far in China that I was happy to leave. The hard-sleeper train I left on was a relief, which says something! It is a pity, because they staff and most of the facilities were fine, but sleeping in the room was not good.

Bearly speak english. It was difficult to communicate. But the rooms were ok. They had movie night. They couldn't arrange a taxi for me, maybe because of the location, but I had a taxi from the trainstastion to the hostel (in front of the door). A lot of noise in the hallway early in the morning.

good small place, my room was private but had some mold problems but as i only needed a bed to sleep it wasn't to bad. nice location, not to central but easy to go to places

A reasonable enough hostel located not too far away from major attractions. Staff spoke quite good English and were very helpful in assisting me with my time in Changsha. Beds were fine but unfortunately the cleanliness of the room floor and bathroom let the place down. All in all a great place if you just want to use it to sleep, but don't expect to have much fun there or meet other western travellers.
