Staff very very friendly but one or two didn't speak English that well so it was a bit hard to communicate. I was told they served breakfast from 7am and planned to eat by 7:30 the day I flew out but couldn't find anyone working at the hostel til around then. Other than that my stay was very comfy and everyone was very friendly & helpful.
Staff is wonderful at this hostel, they really surpassed our expectations! details are cared for in the dorms; shampoo, tooth brush/paste available, each bed has an electrical plug and there is a kettle with glasses to get hot water, it felt like it was a small hotel room :) The hostel is cosy and beautifully decorated, and the staff especially Yang and Li spent a lot of time giving us good advice on what to do and see, and we also had a nice lunch.Great job guys, we would definetely come back!
We only stayed for one night because we were traveling to yangshuo... But we could say this has been the best hostel from the whole trip. It was clean, easy to find, great decorated, cozy and the best of it was its staff (Yang) he was so welcoming and friendly, he managed to arrange the river boat tour for us which actually happened to be great ...he spoke perfect English... We highly recommend this hostel!
Lockers in the rooms would be a good addition. Isolating the windows may also help keep the room warm - it was ridiculously cold even with the AC on! The free towels were a very a nice touch. Location is good, with Diecai Hill just a couple of km away. Easy enough to get to both train and coach stations by bus.
