The hostel is neatly located next to the lake and easily reachable by public transport (given you speak chinese). Simple rooms, very functional though it lacks a bar/meeting area. They have nice rooms with a stunning view on the lake.

This hostel was cute and had a great location next to West Lake The restaurant was pretty good and also had a good atmosphere. But we stayed in room 1216 which is right over the restaurant and it was very noisy, with the loud sound of shifting furniture and walking around until midnight. Also, the room smelled bad, like a bad drainage problem.

I booked single room for two nights and declared my arrival time at 10 pm, but when I arrived before the specified time the reception assigned my room to others because they thought I arrived late.Then, I was assigned to a 4-bed dorm. The facilities at the dorm are pretty bad...old and inadequate toilets and bathrooms.I changed the dorm to single room on the next day, and the facilities at the single room is much better than the dorm. The staff should really improve their management skill...

I was given the worse room in the same setting and was forced to stay even there is a better room available next door.

I loved the location, everything is near from there. The place was fine and the room ok, a few problems with the electricity lockets, the room was a little bit cold and the air-con wasn't working that well. The blanket in the drawer was super dusty and had like a bit of an allergy.

The location is so good and most of the people go there just for the west lake, then we can see the lake after 1min when I go outside.
