Everything was great except the water pressure in the shower. Would definitely stay here again.


Apart the fact that we found some small cockroaches in a bathroom after the used DDT, the hostel was awesome, with reading area and very friendly hosts. Would definitely go back when in Xining


Just one pair of shoes in a double room doesn't make sense. Staff couldn't help to arrange trips. Location is good...some nice restaurants close by.


It was a nice hostel, and the location is fine. You are 15 mins walking from probably the main commercial streets surrounding the main mosque in Xining. Furthermore, the employees there has been very helpful, offering tips on how to get everywhere and recommending us to go ask to the travel agency upstairs when they couldn't answer us about an specific place (Tibetan connection, also highly recommended).


The bathrooms seem to have been recently renovated and showers and toilets are resonably clean, but there were cockroaches one evening. Otherwise good. Rooms were clean, although the wifi signal didn't quite reach the dorm. Unfortunately, the cafe isn't open in winter, so you have to get food outside. We were a bit diasppointed that the staff wanted to charge us double because we asked to change our room after checkout time (it's winter and the hostel almost completely empty).

Owner Comment (Hide)
When this customer asked our front desk to change room, it was already in the evening about 8-9pm. Our check-out time is at noon. So the front desk asked the customer to pay for the dorm bed for half of the day's cost. Our hostel was not empty at that time. The dorm room where this customer was staying had 5 people in total(a 6-bed dorm) and we had a 15 people foreign group were staying at that time. The room the customer wanted to move to was the only available double room out of 4 double-rooms
