Hostel was functional for our needs, but we were glad not to have to spend too much time there. One member of staff was really rude when we were checking in and unhelpful when we asked for some bar/restaurant recommendations. The room was clean enough but very small. Because it was at the top of the stairs it was noisy in the morning and late at night. The only window looked out onto the staircase, so we had to keep the curtain closed which meant it was dark and a bit dingy in the room.
It's kinda far from the metro. It takes around 20 mins on foot however I believe for Chinese people it's not far. For me, it's not close. It depends which country you are from. There's air-conditioner, TV and bathroom in the room. As for cleanness, it's average or below average. Though I don't like it, I know that's what you pay for the price. I would suggest the manager of this hostel to lift up the cleanness degree then it would be perfect!
