Hostel location is good, 10 minutes from the metro station and close to 1912 area. The common room was nice and cozy, with comfy sofas, books etc, but kinda cold in winter (door doesn't close completely); food and drinks are really expensive and service was super slow. The room was cold too, but the ac was simply too noisy to keep it on during the night (noise level: airplane landing). Sheets were clean, lockers and bathroom broken but somehow functioning. Cheap, but only ok for one night.

Staff is nice but the hostel is cold during winter. The bar is very expensive compare to room price: so no one is consuming, so the living room is not living at all. For example coffee is the same price (maybe more expensive) than starbucks but the area is not as comfortable than starbucks. Even tea is at 15 or 20 RMB.... You should maybe try to price more accurate your items. Lastly, the 30 people room is not really friendly...

I was not very impressed with this hostel. The desk manager was rather rude and the cleanliness was poor. The location was decent, but I wouldn't recommend staying here.

I enjoyed my stay, however: The dorm room was way too cold; it was difficult to sleep. The internet connection was quite poor especially in the dorm room. House food very expensive. The staff were pleasant, helpful, with a good level of English. The hostel is quirky and visually pleasant. The hostel is also in a very good location with convenience shops, restaurants, main town, clubs and transport all within a 2-15 minutes walk.

They located in a small alley, which give them a very quite environment. On the contrary, to take a taxi is not so easy. But the hostel is near to Subway and many scenic spots. And the staff there is so nice and food is good also. Really recommend to stay here.

The common room/bar/cafe is nice, the sheets are clean, lockers are provided. The dorm smells, beds are sometimes hard to find, people eat and talk in the dorm at 4AM. The bathroom floor was always wet and the place stinks. No toilet paper, you have to bring your own. The staff is neither friendly nor offers any tips for sightseeing or bars, might be due to poor English. Location is ok, but not perfect. It is acceptable for one night, wouldn't stay there longer.

good points - location - friendly bar next door - cheap bad points - ALAN, the rudest hostel worker I've every met. Can't believe he hasnt been fired. Single handedly ruined our stay - no food for two days because the chef was on vacation - no tissue in the toilets or towels - freezing cold as the staff kept all the doors open (during winter!) - blood stained sheets - barely warm showers in winter - nails protruding from a ceiling beam above my head whilst sleeping on the top bunk - Alan

Great location not far from a Subway line. Lots of little restaurants and a supermarket in the vicinity. The feeling of the main living room area is pretty cool, too.

A lovely hostel in a converted old Nanjing building and in a convenient location to get around Nanjing by metro. There's also a great neighbourhood surrounding it with small local streets filled with restaurants and shops. The staff were very helpful, and the cafe/bar area is warm, welcoming and reasonably priced. Rooms were affordable and comfortable. A great example of how a hostel should be.

Not for winter! The upstairs loft was truly freezing at night (like, wear 2 coats under 2 quilts but still shiver all night). I'm sure in warm weather this place would be lovely: Great lounge, friendly staff, a rooftop patio, and cute dog. Most guests were domestic Chinese travelers, so foreigners may find it harder to make social connections here.

The atmosphere was good! But the price of food and drink in the common room were a bit pricey. There was only one shower room in the ground floor and the doors are made of glass. Sometimes you can see the shadow of people taking shower inside so it's a bit creepy, but no bit deal.

I liked the hostel and would stay there again. The staff were helpful and friendly. The 8 bed dorm with ensuite was good with a large bathroom, lockers, and each bed had a power plug and light. Don't go to Nanjing on a Monday because many of the major sites are closed.

Stayed in the huge dorm in the loft. Beds were comfy and sheets clean though a bit draughty as is in the roof. Bathrooms were not clean, lots of hair on the floors, full bins and generally very dirty. Hostel also a bit difficult to find initially but fairly close to the subway and bars a restaurants. Downstairs area was nice and the breakfast was good. For a budget hostel, not bad value for money. I only stayed 1 night as a short trip in Nanjing but would not stay here for more than 1 night.

Great place to stay. It contains all the basic needs. Only down side it that the lobby is not very "friend meeting" friendly.

This is a Hostel how I like it. An atmosphere that tells from it's past guesttravellers and a nice staff. The lounge is very good. The sanitery facilities are average for a hostel, the shower is good. The Location is excellent, right next to the1912 area.

- Location is close to all the spots, - Staffs were nice and helpful - However, would suggest stay at 8 ppl mix dorm instead of 4 ppl female dorm as it is very small, dirty and smelly. - The best part is the neighborhood, the architectures around the area are amazing & peaceful, I did enjoy every morning when I went out to get a coffee and could walked around the area. would definitely recommend it to friends and stay again if back in Nanjing.

This place is great for one night but expect to first change the dirty sheets on your bed and put on new ones.Effectively the staff didn't care and told me to make my own bed as the maid was gone. oh remove your sheets when you are ready to leave. My locker was broken and had a gaping hole- i was told there is nothing they can do. I then suggested i move to the other bed in the room of 25beds..after some time wasting they finally agreed. The owner was lovely though. Toilets were disgusting!
