We spent two nights at Mellbourn's Home Hostel in Shenzhen and we enoyed our stay there. The hostel were clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was very warm. Afterwards i would say it was the best choice for our weekend trip.

Needs to mount shelves in bathroom and sleeping rooms. Very inconvenient to use bathroom without shelving


Good hostel, considering Shenzhen is not a big place to go travel to, the hostel is decked out nice and cute. bedroom is clean but the bathroom could use more touch ups during the day I think. They gave me spot on directions to get there from the hostel! RECOMMENDED

My second stay here this year. This place is really cosy and the owner is a really nice chilled out guy. The location is quite good too, lots of malls nearby as well as smaller local places to eat. I would have like to have stayed longer.


Great little place. It was a shock when I entered as, from the outside it didn't look promising. Inside is beautiful. Very quiet and peaceful Good location to the train station and subway. Direction to the hostel on the website could be improved significantly.

Curfew! :( Many Chinese people staying here so that's pretty cool, if you're into that. They were very cool about my last minute change of reservation; no fees or complaints or anything. That was very nice.
