a nice hotel, good price. staffs are friendly
Really enjoyed our stay here! Arrived at night, taxi couldn't find the place so our already arrived friends rode from the hostel on bikes to find us! Staff is so friendly. Yummy dinner. Common room area is spacious and comfortable. Fellow international guests were chatting away making for a great atmosphere. Breakfast was nice, but 28 kuai pp for a plate of eggs, toast, bacon, peppers (they ran out of hash browns) & tea/coffee, whereas a night's stay in a private ensuite twin is 40pp. Nice room!

Overall great hostel. Location wasn't great but it wasn't hard to get to any of the places I had to. Staff was very helpful and basically helped me plan my time in Luoyang. Most of what I disliked had more to do with Luoyang than the actual hostel, i.e. public transport stopping around 8pm, not much very lively in the city centre, weather wasn't great, etc.
You have what you expect with the price ... But staff is unfriendly, you feel like you're not welcome exept one women on the staff. The hostel is really far away from downtown and when you order something to eat it´s seems to be really complicated!!! Also someone came in our dormitory (a member of the staff) just sleep in a free bed and smocked inside ....
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!
very nice atmosphere, and friendly staffs. even though it's a bit far from main part of longmen it's 20min bus riding to the goratto
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.
