Good staff service... Cleanliness could be improved


Day staff spoke no English, which I can work around but...

Location is really hard to find and they don't provide enough information on the website at all(no Chinese name of the hostel or whatsoever). Staff sold me a map for 5 Yuan (in Chinese). Showers and toilets rather poor and no toilet paper. Internet reception also not really good and slow. Staff made dinner for a reasonable price but wouldn't book a train ticket. But The atmosphere was really really good (depending on the travellers). But Living room area was serving as a good gathering point.


Very friendly staff and a really cool converted building as part of a nice art district.


Hostel in decent, cool, creative location. Dorm room and bed were fine. Common area was good, except that there is smoking allowed. Some people even smoke in other dorm rooms (not mine). Staff was very friendly, but spoke little English. Would recommend.


Bathrooms were disgusting and smelt awful. Hot water was hit and miss so ended up having mainly cold showers. Far from the tourist sites, but many places to eat nearby albeit they closed before 10pm. Only one member of staff spoke English.
