The hostel was in the BEST location. Right in the middle of the Gulou shopping area and very short walk to West Lake. The staff spoke great English and was friendly and helpful when we asked about how to get to different locations. The hall smelled a bit like sewage, but inside the rooms there wasn't any smell. Beds were comfortable enough, and there was a 20% discount for guests at the attached cafe which was cute. Overall great stay!

I would recommend this to anyone staying in Hangzhou - an awesome hostel with friendly staff and a great little bar! Probably the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in, and we loved our loft room. Good location, easy to get to the sights.

Cool and stylish! The staff is very helpful - when I got there I couldn't find the hostel so I called them up and one of the guys went to meet me on the a tree and brought me to the hostel. That was a really nice gesture. But sorry guys, it was not very clean. The bathroom area doesn't have a door and they had a strong smell of sewage. Also the floor in the rooms were very dirty and had a coat of dust And I got some sort of bug while there. Great hostel but needs to improve cleanness.

Good speaking staff , nice location. However When i handed in my key it had a crack in it. I had it in my wallet the whole time. Now I don't know whether it was broken from the start or it broke in my wallet (the thing looked quite fragile) In any case I didn't abuse it, but I had to pay 6.50$. Replacing a card doesn' cost more then a few RMB. It feels this policy is design to generate extra income and it leaves a bitter taste for a paying customer. Hence this negative remark in my comment

This place is great, especially the singles. The dorms are nice too. Only thing they really need to improve is the slight odor in the hallway of the showers/dorms.

The location is good not very far from West Lake and located in the old neighborhood which I like very much . It has very nice bar and cafe which you can have breakfast and have a cosy time on the second floor of the cafe. The vibe there is OK. People in public area were just playing cellphones or iPads by themselves. But it is very cheap so I guess it worth the money paid. Overall it is good but could be better!

Very nice! We stayed in the double room for te first 2 nights. The room was really surprising! It's in a little courtyard with little garden in front of the rooms. My room was 2 floors. Bed on the 2nd floor, bathroom and little sitting room downstairs. Very clean and nice. To be honest I wasnt expect too much about the hostel in China, but this one is one of the best hostel that we ever stayed! Staff are very helpful and friendly.

Clean and comfortable. Nice common areas to hang out. Wifi worked pretty well. It's a nice building overall and newish. The cafe is good to chill out in but most of the food is overpriced. One minor prob was the beds in the private rooms are on the floor, which is sorta annoying but not that big a deal. The staff also is a bit disorganized. Remember to hold onto your receipt.

Located in a cute area of Hangzhou. The staff was super helpful (If I need to get a train ticket, they would write a note in Chinese to make it easier, super useful if you don't speak Chinese). The Shine restaurant (next door) has a very lovely atmosphere and the food is delicious and very cheap, especially with the Hostel discount. There are movie nights and bike nights planned too. Special mention to Lizzie for her great style and service ;) I extended my stay there and I'd recommend it!

It is the second time I stay in this hostel. The first time was great! Nice little family room, food discount and nice staff. This secon time we booked the same room, they located us in one of the cheaper ones, because the nice ones on the courtyard do not exist (but they still anounce them). We complained and the gave us the regular food discount that everyone gets. Not staying here anymore. Go somewhere else nearby.

internet connection was shaky. great location, nice staff and small room but all i needed. laundry service a . bit pricey (25rmb) but convenient. espresso ridiculous expensive (single espresso more expensive than double espresso at starbucks)

excellent location and extremely helpful staff: because it was raining for several days, we wanted to cut our stay in Hangzhou short; even though it meant we would stay at the hostel a day shorter than booked (we got a refund), the staff helped us book a hotel at our next destination

Nice hostel about 15mins walk from the west lake. Staff here really went out of their way to be helpful - we needed some train tickets in a hurry and they helped us no end. Quite a lot of bugs in our room and around the door unfortunately but we were given bug refill which kept them away mostly. Overall a nice place to stay.
