The hostel is conveniently located in regards to the high-speed train station and the Grottos. The hostel and had a lively common area, helpful staff, and clean and spacious dorm rooms. Would be happy to stay again.
We had a great time at that hostel, really nice atmosphere (and good music). The staff is super-helpful with suggestions and directions: at the front office they have a big board with small paper sheets with directions in english and chinese, so useful! Rooms are clean, they have a washing machine and some space in the roof where you can hang your laundry. It's not in the city center, and it takes at least 25 minutes by bus.....but it's not a big issue. Definitely recommended.
Good for 2-3 night stay to see Shaolin Temple, Longmen Grottoes, etc. Not much in the immediate area of the hostel except a busy road, staff are friendly.
Great hostels staff were all really helpful. They had little little direction sheets for people to take, which detailed in English and Chinese how to get buses to the main sites. Would stay there again
Very nice hostel with great common room and atmosphere, the staff was very friendly as well, they helped us a lot!
Good hostel with friendly staff. Food was overpriced for quality. Didn't push tour at all,gave you all information to do it yourself.
Just a stone's throw from LONGMEN caves and high-speed train station. GIANT common room with projector, music console, benches & tables. CHEAP diners and stores around the hostel. DECENTLY priced souvenirs offered at the hostel (pins & vintage trinkets) Extremely GRACIOUS (Huahua) and HANDY (Wen) staff. SPACIOUS dorms with lockers (bring your own lock), INDIVIDUAL reading lights and EFFECTIVE AC. Beware !!! there's an additional 5¥ / night, unless you own or purchase China's YH membership card.
낙양은 정보가 흔하지 않더군요. 몇개안보이는 호스텔중에 아무거나 무작정 잡아서 갔는데 그냥 아무것도 없습니다. 커다란 도로밖에 없어요. 바로앞에 버스정류장이 있긴한데 노선이 얼마나 다양한진 모르겠습니다. 낙양용문역, 버스터미널, 낙양역 모두 접근성 떨어집니다. 자전거있거나 느긋하게 걸으실거 아니면 엔진있는거 타길 권장해요. 어쨌든 숙소자체는 나쁘지않았습니다.
A bit out of town, but longmen caves and city centre easy to reach by bus and taxis cheap using meters. Good directions provided in english with chinese notes for bus and taxi drivers. The night we stayed there there was a lot of noise from the pub in the centre of the building until long after midnight.
The hostel is clean and easy to locate. It has a nice common area but atmosphere depends on the guests who were staying there. I stayed at the 9 bed dorm, has an ensuite with a Western toilet, public bathrooms do not have. Location: not near the night market(must check out) and bus stops at 8:30pm. Some staffs were nice and warm, some weren't. Good food and they try to improve the hostel overall so thats encouraging. No wifi in rooms at the time I stayed, they might have now.

Cool place. Easy to go LongMen Grottoes and BaiMa Temple.
Decent place, but so-so food: good French toast, but I was rather surprised to find that cornflakes consisted of a sprinkling of them on top of warm milk!
Note that there is no such thing as Zhaocun Bus Station. It is Zhaocun bus stop and it is pretty much in the outskirts of the city (40 min by bus from the central railway station). Apart from that this hostel is great: large clean rooms, cozy common spaces and very helpful staff (although they don't speak much English). Bus 81 goes from there to the Longmen grottoes in about 25 minutes. Maps and postcards are available for purchase at the reception. There is a nearby cheap street food too.
