Worst hostel we've stayed in in China. The lounge turns into a music bar at night with a man singing into a mic cranked up to max volume.... Which is when we realized that our room's "window" was actually the wall between our room and the lounge. It's impossible to sleep before 12-1am. And then at 6/7 am the cleaning woman sits outside the "window" to the dorm room and shouts to her friend outside for a few hours. We stayed here 2 nights and both were exactly the same.
I had a twin bed room next to pedestrian walkway along the main river where people would walk by all day long and bars would blast music until 12 or 1pm. If you're a light sleeper, I suggest you find another place. Otherwise, the location is pretty good. English staff is limited except for this one girl who was really friendly and tried her best to help me out. The place isn't the cleanest hostel either.
The hostel is located above a karaoke bar, don't expect to get any sleep before 1AM.
