I love this place! Ambiance is great! Right in ancient town, shops and small restaurants and bars are nearby. STaff was very helpful and very gracious. Love the library and reading room, the bar area with tables, the FREE WIFI. And LOVE the balconies and patios that overlook the tiled rooftops. The little chairs on these patios need to be replaced with some that are sturdier (and bigger--they are great for Chinese people, not so much for Westerners). But I would not stay anywhere else.


The location is really good, save and the staff was really nice an helpful. They helped us with ticket booking and gave us a lot of tips. Maybe the could take better care of the ancient building which is really beautiful. There was some mold in the common area on the roof and our room was really damp thats why we had some cockroaches. Common problem in this climate.


Very nice stay in here. Perfect location, lovely staff and intimate atmosphere. Thank you :)


The rooms were spacious though we had to change rooms first due to fungus.


Very comfy nice Hostel. Many great big relaxing Areas. Not many showers and toilets. Perfecty located in a beautiful town. Very helpful and nice personnel. Beds a bit hard ;-)

Absolutely loved this place! Felt just at home staying here. Movie room, recreation room (table tennis and billiards) and lots of lounge space. Staff were so sweet, especially the ladies at the front desk. In a great spot right next to the old street. The only negative thing I have to say is that washrooms could be cleaned more thoroughly


The Ancient Town Youth Hostel is very centrally located in the city of Tunxi close to the old street. This location is unique since you really feel that you are living in an old Chinese town. The trip to the mountains was marvelous and the staff is very friendly and helped us a lot. An improvement point of the hostel would be the cleanliness of the hostel.


The place is quite nice, with great staff, but one thing I would like to tell all the hostels, that I have been to, SMILE! The first impression is really important. When the guest checks-in smile, so he/she feels welcome. But the staff is really helpful.

thank u for your comment。smile is the most important thinge for a hostel as you said。that our problem of receptionist management。we will try our best to solve it。 wish u have a perfect traveling here next time。thank u again for your honesty。


Location is in the center of the tourist area. Helpful staff and clean rooms made us feel like home. We stayed on the 4th floor. The cons of that was that id don't have a toilet facilities, but the pros is that you have acces to the roof with nice veranda and fish pound where view is perfect.


The hostel is really cute and nice. All the staff is very nice and polite, and they also speak English. They helped us to get to the mountains and they also suggested us more activities to do. The room and the bathroom were clean and the common areas were really nice. The internet connection works really fast, and the restaurant serves western and Chinese food. It is located next to the Main Street and surrounded by many restaurants and touristic shops.
