A great place to stay, yet a fan at the second floor would increase the joy as to help circulate the air on hot days.


Good atmosphere! No coffee available inthe morning though, but there is a coffee place on the corner.


They staff worked hard and the hostel is well located but they should make these improvements 1.Better pillows for all rooms.They provided a kind of bean bag for sleeping. 2.They need to do some modest decorating in the dorms as well as install some air conditioning. 3.Change the locks into some of th dorms.I had a problem each time entering the room. Otherwise a positive experience and the hostel has potential and has a good common room and recption.


I stayed only one night there, it's more than pleasant. Nice people, awesome musician and great football game! One thing to make it perfect, is the pillow......can be a bit more soft!


It might be helpful to have a sign directly outside the Hostel entrance, so people know they have reached the hostel. It would be good if the bins could be emptied a little more frequently and the toilets should be regularly checked for cleanliness. Several people were smoking in the dorm when I arrived. It might be useful to put more clearer signage that this is not allowed. There were large windows in the dorms which needed to be open at night.. But mosquitoes could get in.


This is the only hostel in Lanzhou so I had to stay here. The showers and toilets were vile. They were dirty. They smelled. The showers were in darkness and smelled awful. There was very little pressure too. The staff were friendly and helpful though. The rooms were clean enough with locks and lockers with keys were also provided. If it wasn't for the disgusting showers and toilets, I'd have given a much better rating overall.


What a neat building in an up and coming art district. This converted warehouse has a cool open air chill space with glass panels on the floor that you can see the hallway underneath. The rooms are spacious with metal lockers available. The only hard part is finding the place as its tucked away in a gated art district! One of the staff members speaks real good english.


Family staff very friendly, they where waiting for me late at night and gave me very good advices about transportation within the big city of Lanzhou !


Staff are very nice and helpful and speaks english very well.
