There ar practically no beds in the dorms. You sleep on wood panels with a thin hard blanket on top. Not good for more than one or two nights.

Staff were nice and the hostel was close to the bus station. Our room was big but there was a lot of mould all over the end wall and behind the curtains from where the air con was dripping. So the room and air con smelt a bit. But it's ok for a short stay.
The bathroom in my 6-bed dorm looked filthy. There was forever a pool of water on the floor. The number of power sockets in my room was quite limited. The little garden on the ground floor doesn't offer much space for guests to mingle.
Overall, we had a good time at the Many Trees. U can catch breakfast at the noodle stand opposite of the hostel. Unfortuantely, staff missed our reservation via website, so we had to spend the first night in a four bed dorm which was a sad experience (super hot, very loud fan and uncomfortable beds). The double bed rooms are quiet ok (with aircon!).The bathrooms should be cleaned more often and need a renovation. In contrast to previous comments, the owner was helpful and spoke good English.
It's really close to the bus station and the rooms are fine. There is a little terasse wich is a really nice place to have a beer. I wanted to changed my booking dates and I send them an email to their email adress three days before I came and... they didin't chek their email! Moreover they seems to not care to not checking the email of the hostel
Hostel is in a great location. However, I specifically stayed here in order to renew my Chinese visa. They were not very helpful and it became apparent, upon applying at the PSB, that someone from the hostel should have come with me to aid in my application. They didn't provide me with the correct hostel registration either. Only met one guy who spoke English well enough. Also, they told us the room requested wasn't available!
nice little hostel. there is an area outside with some tables where you can sit in the shade. the rooms are pretty claustrophobic as they don't look at all homely and the windows all look out onto another building about a metre away, but the rest of the building is fine and it's in a central location. the staff were a bit mixed but mostly friendly, though they didn't know anything about any trips or places to go outside of jing hong, so head to mei meis cafe for that. cool stairwell graffiti!
The hostel provides a great value for the price. Rooms were only moderately clean, and though I stayed for over a week, my room was never cleaned or serviced (the trash was taken out once when I requested a full room-cleaning). There was free bottled water available, and a washing machine for 10 Yuan - both of which I, a long-term traveler, really appreciated. The hostel definitely has a youth vibe, and staff and travelers (mostly nationals), hang out in the front terrace at all hours.
