" Best hostel I've stayed in in China so far. Really nice place with an amazing atmosphere. Cozy rooms and great chillout places gathered in this one lovely place. Plus Tom is a great host. He provided us with insider information and showed us the easiest ways to get to the prettiest places. Plus he helped us out while having (lots of) trouble with phones and flights. Best guy ever! "
