The staff were very accommodating, but the main areas were not air conditioned, which in the summer, is horribly hot. The showers are isolated, sketchy, and dirty. Although they dispensed hot water, I stayed in for less than a minute because I was afraid the ceiling would fall in or someone would open the unlockable door. The facilities were dingy, but cute. Cut my trip short from 5 to 3 days here. The private rooms were depressing and poorly lit.

Overall a good hostel. My biggest complaint is that the showers are not readily accessible as you have to walk through an outdoor garden area to access it. Pros: central location, the girl at the front desk was extremely helpful, clean rooms, alcohol is priced fairly Cons: you have to walk through an outdoor garden area to get to the showers, showers were not very clean


Good location for the university but a bit of an effort to get to the major attractions. Had a private room which was good, but the shared bathrooms looked fairly bad. There was a bar and seating area, but it was quite small and the atmosphere was dead. Good Aussie (blue sky) and Belgian (brewcell) places nearby with great atmospheres. Interesting website linked through hosteling international website.


the cooking was great!


Wifi is not that strong here. I was on the second floor, need to go to the first floor for wifi. Hot shower is only between 6am - 10pm. Staff are nice!

This place is really conveniently located, very close to Nanjing Normal and Nanjing Uni. The building is not well heated in winter. I had to do work and I wanted to sit in the common room, but it was so cold my hands turned red. The rooms are not clean, walls are dirty, building needs TLC. The blankets are overworn and have holes in them. The shower facilities require a walk across the courtyard. The doorframes of the showers are made of rotting wood. Showers dirty.


Lock on dorm door didn't work. Had clothes stolen from washing line (clearly not the hotels' fault, staff did look at cameras and try to help, appreciate this could happen anywhere.) Very cold communal areas and rooms, atmosphere might be better in summer. Lacked the normal homely atmosphere, but it did its job. Walls between dorms very thin, and often loud music played from reception area could be heard in rooms. Showers are in an outhouse and not the best, but water hot and beds clean.
