It would help to know beforehand that there was a major renovation. Getting to the room was damgerous and the room was very dusty. We liked the city but it was the worst hostel sine we started our trip( we've stayed in four). Maybe close while renovating?
The staff was very friendly and a great help when I needed recommendations for places to eat or places to go. The hostel is fairly convenient to get to by bus from the train station and I enjoyed my stay. I found that during peak times, the shower did run out of hot water, especially in the morning, but showering at night alleviated this problem and the water was toasty warm.
The staff were very friendly! Gave our group lots of advice about what to see in Kaifeng. They really made the hostel worth staying in. We decided this would be a great place in Summer. It's very cold in Winter and you need lots of layers to sleep in. There was little to no hot water our whole stay (3 days). There is a nice courtyard you can sit out and have coffee in when the sun appears. Generally a good place in stay in the area. Very central. Just wrap up warm!
This must be a very nice and enjoyable place in summer, but definitely not while it is freezing outside. They've got no heating in the whole hostel. Still, the stuff was very friendly and helpful!
The shower didn't have hot water and the rooms were FREEZING. The heater didn't work in the room--I had to sleep in all my winter clothes just to stay warm. The staff were nice in the lobby when I asked questions, and they let me leave my bags in the hostel while I went sightseeing for the day.
The staff here is the warmest and most helpful of any hostel we've visited. While the facilities aren't the prettiest, the location and price were ideal. We came during the low season, and the bar was not stocked and kitchen closed. Also note that this hostel is quite cold in winter; the hot water worked one day out of four. Regardless, if you are coming to Kaifeng and need a cheap room, the staff here make up for the shortcomings of the facilities.
