Arrived and was told that my reservation had not been accounted for so after the staff argued with me and among themselves I got sent to their satellite hostel. Several other people were sent out there as apparently they dont know what a "booking" is. The satellite hostel has the same name but is far to the north in the dusty industrial part of town without much around it. The interior is dirty, guests rude, and staff clueless and unhelpful. Worst Hostel in China in a while.


staff is hardly speaking any English, room was not ready at checkin-time, all the rest was very good

They don't accept reservations from HW. Even w confirmation email they refused w/ "we dont speak English/can't read it". Finally they relented


The hostel was very hot and they did not provide air-conditioning in the bedrooms which was very terrible. The staff were not helpful and the toilets were very dirty but we made a lot of friends with other flatmates


it's valuable hostel. but staff not so much kind. and just simple map they want to sell it just paid 5 and 8 yuan for it. they didn't smile.... and bathroom not clean !! anyway the other it's ok. location, shower, and have a big kitchen for a eationg and breaking time.. but can't not cook. just buy somthing eat it in there anyway i think valuable hostel with the money but toilet is too disgusting..
