The knowledgeable staff made our stay perfect pointing us into the right directions and give us activity advices.
Friendly and english speaking staff. Clean restrooms. Very good location. Nice bar and restaurant downstairs. We really enjoyed our stay there!
The staff here are AMAZING. Located walking distance to almost everything. AND they give you a free beer. Could you ask for anything more?
The staff was so nice, helpful, pleasant and the restaurant top, the pool (billard), the food, the conviviality,the roof, the rooms , all of it excellent, but the must was the kind staff at the reception as well as in the bar and restaurant
The location of the Hostel is amazing as well as the service is. Very near to the old town and just some minutes away from the beach. The rooms are nice and quite big. The showers and the toilet have seen their best days, especially the toilets (just one western toilet in the third floor). The restaurant is good and also the prices are fair. But it's an offical bar so in my opinion you do not have the typical hostel athmosphere.
Crews are very kind and can speak English. But, it is located in an old section of Qingdao city and it means that some foreigners can't enjoy Qingdao at night. There's no bar or pub nearby.

It was ok, normal hostel, staff very nice and helpful
The staff is really friendly. Lovely bar/restaurant. Sadly only western food. Bathrooms are quiet bad. Really desperate for a makeover. Dorms were ok but also could do it a bit of a do-over. It's good value for money if you are not too fussy about hygiene I guess. Probably would stay again.
We had a fabulous time at Kaiyue! The staff was extremely considerate and friendly. The rooms were clean, spacious, and the showers always had hot water. Thank you, Kaiyue!

With great food and awesome atmosphere, the downstair cafe was definitely a nice place to go! Sometimes live performances of singers or bands even made it better. It only took about 5-10 mins to reach the local fresh seafood stalls, so I highly recommend to those who would like to enjoy seafood feasts.
Things were very good, especially the friendly and helpful staff. Maybe also offer Chinese food on the menu.
the staff was nice and friendly, rooms a little bit decadent, the bar very cozy instead
This staff was AMAZING!!! We had a great time! The location is perfect. Will definitely stay here again! Also the adding cafe is so meticulously decorated!!! i was inspired! good food too!
Great staff, like the vibe of the restaurant on the first floor. Nice location a bit removed but still convenient.
Very friendly staff, nice hostel in a good location. Not easy to find though, if its your first time in Qingdao. But with taxi it's simple and costs only around 10yuan.
I love the hostel, and this is my second time staying here. The only thing that is annoying is that you cant play cards in the restaurant/bar area.. even though we were just waiting for our food. Since there isnt a good place to just hang out, other than the restaurant, I found this to be especially annoying.
very friendly staff at the reception. restaurant/bar is large and was very empty when i was there with overpriced beer and (italian) water. only two showers for all the dorm guests but i never had to queue. location is conveniant, in walking distance to most sights and transportation.
This hostel is really special. Situated in the old town, it is surrounded by the nice German architecture and is close to the sea. The staff all go the extra mile with guests, smiling at everyone as they enter and enjoy the adjoining Jinns cafe, which has a reasonably priced western menu and comfortable seating. The dorm was really comfortable too, so straight A's for KaiYue!
It's a cute little hostel in an interesting neighborhood that offers a lot of services to visitors. Their rooms are basic but sufficient and their friendly staff makes the stay worthwhile.
