The hostel is fine, but locking the door so early in the evening is prohibitive to the traveler. The staff state that if you want to come back later just call them but they often do not answer the phone or they are irritated that you want to come back late. Travelers often stay out late and explore the city, there needs to be a better system in place to make this more convenient for everyone. The curfew thing makes you feel like you live in a student dorm.

Hello. The opening time of our hostel is 7:00 to 24:00 and it's known to every guest when they check in. Both you two came back late between 2 to 4 am every night and we opened the door for you as soon as the phone rang. You took our blanket as bath towel without informing us. But we still provided you a now towel with no rent.


It was OK. Staff are not very friendly. No smile but it doesnt mean they are not helpful. East Northen Chinese people dont smile much but since they work for a hostel if they smile and more friendly it wud be better for their biz and the guests as well. There is no drinking water, micro oven provided. For a hair dryer, when you ask, it will come from the behind the counter. The door key is so stiff that you wud take it forever to open it. You'd better just leave the door open.


Very nice hostel.though location is not the best it's not hard to get by bus to most of the places. Staff is helpfull
