A nice hostel situated in ciqikou ancient town. The ancient town itself is well worth visiting but to stay in this hostel is quite inconvenient if you plan on seeing any other part of Chongqing. You will need to exit the pedestrian streets the hostel is located in to go anywhere and it will take you 10-15 minutes to just get to a bus, taxi or metro; once you do, it will take 30 mintues to an hour to get downtown which really is a pain. Overall a nice hostel but location is a big problem imo.
Good locations. Very cool. Little hard to find. The staff only spoke a little English and had limited knowledge about how to get to places/where things were or even what there was to do.
The location was good. The staff was friendly but spoke very little English, what was a little problematic, because my Chinese is not very good. The room was ok, but the AC was not really working so it was quite hot in the room. The biggest problem was that there were no Western style toilettes at all. That was very unconvenient. Overall it was ok but I stayed in better Hostels in China.
Nice hostel - we had a room overlooking the river. Clean and nice staff. One VERY negative thing that is NOT clear when you book this hostel: There is NO water to shower (not even cold) from 7am till sometime in the evening - the pumps are not 'on' and the water has to be lifted some floors up to the top. Instead of spending 5 min on a quick shower (very needed after a full day travelling with back-packs) we spend 30 min to wash in the sink waiting for the buckets to fill up to get soap out
A great hostel in a good location. I was only here one night, but it was perfect. It might be a little hard to get to, but just follow the directions, it'll lead you right to it! The antique town/street just outside the hostel is great for a quick snack or lunch/dinner.
The location is remote, but I found that in a city of this size and with great metro/rapid rail service, it was indeed better to be in this location. It takes time to get to the CBD, but being in an ancient Ming dynasty town made it worth the extra travel.
