Quite good is the location of the hostel near to a metro station. Unfortunately, all the bikes don't really work - which isn't too good, since bike rental is advertised (and was a reason for me to choose it). The lockers aren't really large and cannot be locked, the bathrooms are flooded due to dual toilet/shower use.

good location, staff were friendly and helpful, wifi didn't work but luckily a nearby decent free wifi could be accessed from the courtyard. had a nice bar and courtyard but it was dead apart from us and 1 Swedish girl. lockers couldn't lock. very dusty and dirty under the beds. overall decent though the lockers and wifi should be improved.

A bit confusing to find at first until you get to the main entrance. Large bar/lounge/garden area, however it was empty when I was there. Shower/toilet cubicles are a bit cramped. Staff is very nice including the dogs.

The staff were not useful at all, they couldn't describre to the taxi driver where was the hostel!!! The wifi doesn't work. The bed sheets were not changed and hair were not the worse thing we find on the sheets that were not change... The location is good. If you use the Metro it is easy to find the place and it is just next to the very nice old street and canal of suzhou so in the evening you can take a walk there after all the other attraction are close.

thanks for your command.we try the best for our guests.we would like to improve our service if there is something not goes well. First of all,we told the driver our address,we even told him where the place he should drop you off. Our location is just beside main road,and there are signs pointed the our place.I don't think your Chinese girlfriend has a good sense of direction. we are sorry that what happened about our wifi and cleanliness.we will improve it.Thanks for your advice.

It would be helpful if the description also had the address in Chinese, to show it to the taxi drivers or find the bus stop easier. The place was ok and the stuff were great, really helpful and nice. Also, don't forget you have to pay deposit money (100 RMB).

Excellent location next to the 7 mile shantang, easy to find. Staff very helpful. Dorm rooms a little cramped and beds have no mattress, only hard wooden surface. Didn't bother me, but others had an uncomfortable night. The place is clean enough and not too noisy. Enjoyed my stay here. Thanks.

The only thing that I missed was a tour of the hostel, for example no one told me where the toilets and bathrooms and some other facilities are, but in general we were very satisfied and the hostel is very nice.

Super nice stuff. Good recommendation for restraunt and shopping center:-)

The hostel bathrooms and washing area for the dorm was cramped and unclean, with no soap or toilet paper or hooks for clothes in the shower/ toilets. The blinds didn't work in our dorm room and no guide to the facilities (hire bikes, lounge, kitchen, bar, cafe etc.) was given. There were also no maps of the area available. The beds were clean and the dorm room quiet. Overall, a typical Chinese (but not international-standard YHA) hostel.

Awesome spot in Suzhou next to a really nice authentic Chinese street! Sizable rooms! You will definitely not regret staying here!

Location was great, right next to beautiful canals and metro station. The hostel itself was a bit cold and dirty. Drains seemed to be clogged often. Showers and toilets in the same tiny cabin: everything was wet. Room key cards were deactivated about every single time you left the room. Staff was okay. Facilities were good, hairdryers and free toilet paper etc. Dorm room was comfortable, except beds were quite hard. Nothing too special to mention, overall stay was quite okay.

It was freezing cold in the room.

No locks on most lockers! For some reason every single time you leave the building your keycard gets deactivated. The building is not heated in the winter. It was freezing! The rooms have heat, but cleaning people like to turn it off and open your windows when you're away. Some of the toilets don't work and they never had TP. A lot of burnt out lights and clogged sinks. Most of the guests are Chinese families, including Grandma and Grandpa, babies and children. VERY LOUD STAY.

Staff were friendly and room was fine (although the first room we got, the windows didn't lock. However, staff had no problem changing us to a different room though). Only problem was that it 'offered' breakfast and food but the chef was never available to cook. You shouldn't advertise food available if it isn't actually available.
