Security- Store your valuables at the reception desk. Location- In the center of town. Staff- helpful staff. Atmosphere- More than one common area with a rec room. Cleanliness- Not disgusting, but could have been a bit better, esp. in the upstairs bathrooms Value For Money- OK Facilities- Depends which room you get. Overall- I stayed in two rooms, a 10 bed room and a 5 bed. the 10 bed was great, 5 room, not as good. lockers were not sturdy, small room, and poorly located plug outlets..
This is a fantastic hostel - I really enjoyed my stay! Stayed in a 4-bed dorm, where all the bedding was included (including duvet and pillow) and was clean. Clean towels could be hired for 5 RMB. Facilities were great and I loved the atmosphere. Lockers were provided and a lock is built into them, so you don't need to bring your own lock. Staff were helpful and good at providing information about the nearby attractions and how to get to them. Only slight problem was there weren't many showers.
Great location at the old street of Huangshan city. This is about 65km from Huangshan mountain. The hostal can organize a one way bus trip to the mountain for 22 RMB. Old street is really touristic but nice to see so a great place for a hostel. The hostel itself is nice, great vibe and nice facilities. The hostel also gives advices about trips to ancient Chinese town such as XiDi. This was really nice and easy to visit with public transport because of the advices of the staff.
Staff were absolutely exceptional, English speaking (during the day) and had a really great attitude and went out of their way to help. Dorms were standard. Big hostel with all amenities. Wifi in the rooms now. Their recommendation for Baiyun hostel (90 RMB) on Huangshan was good too. It was clean + warm with free kettle + warm shower. Only one problem at Ancient Town YH was that the key to my locker in the dorm opened more than one locker. I made them aware of this.
Good place to stay while visiting. The 2 bed dorm is a great value. The whole place is maybe a bit worn down, and could use a bit more cleaning, both common areas and the dormitories. Staff was helpful, location is great. Don't miss to check out our family guy writings on the wall on the top floor.
Good hostel, and great location near the main strip in the old part of town. Clean, for the most part, the games room is a bit dirty and the internet isn't the greatest, but overall not too bad of a place to stay.
Hostel was great, staff was friendly and helpful. Great patio are to meet people, has a very 'homey ' feel to it. Right across the Lake so great area if you're there to see the lake.
Staff will really friendly and helpful but bathroom door was broken and there did not seem to be enough showers or toilets.
Great location, dirty bathrooms and bugs in the kitchen/bar
Great thanks for your great hospitality!
