Great hostel. Main selling point is the fantastic bar/cafe downstairs - very cheap drinks and the food is fantastic.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel and in Qingdao. The bathrooms were clean, the sheets were clean, although I have to say the beds were a bit hard (Chinese style mattresses). The location is amazing; you can get to most main sites on foot. The staff was very friendly and willing to help me. For the price, you really couldn't beat it. The shower was hot. It did smell a bit musty, but again for less than $3 USD a night in a dorm room, you can't complain.

Can't fault this place - most probably the best budget choice in town. Location spot on, superb value for money, very friendly staff, excellent big bar/restaurant/common area with pleasant atmosphere (sociable, yet your own quiet corner if you need it), reasonable WiFi for China, pool table, decent dorms, adequate toilets. I've always found that hostels that can split the levels between socialising and sleeping areas have the yin and yang. Can't ask for much more from a hostel. Thanks folks.

Really helpful staff. Rented bikes to ride around. Free beer each day was awesome. Nice cafe with live music attached. They are currently renovating to upgrade the qualities of their rooms, our room was clean but quite old.

Awesome everything, seriously great place in every respect. Expensive bar/cafe, but the local place across the street is so cheap and so good. 15 yuan dumplings and 6 yuan bags of beer, ya it's great.

I was incredibly impressed with this hostel! The staff was extremely friendly, welcoming, and helpful any time we had a question. They went above and beyond! The restaurant downstairs had a delicious breakfast and the hostel was not too far from the train station. The building was an old church, which gave it a unique feel. I would gladly stay there again :)

An awesome place to stay! You can enjoy cheap beer nearby and view the wonderful german architecture of the city! The staff speak English from passable to intermediate, so this isn't a problem.

This place is a little gem hidden away in the depths of old town Qingdao. I've travelled here twice and love it. Great location. Just love it. Gorgeous restaurant attached.

Friendly staff generally, and nice to have the free beer each day! Good location within distance of all Old Town sights, and buses to the beaches and Beer Street/Tsingtao brewery. Could do with some decorating, but clean and tidy, and the shared rooms were huge with comfortable beds and had decent hot showers. Shame there weren't more people as the atmosphere wasn't too lively...

While I don't have much experience with hostels in China, I can still say that this place is a great value for the money, being at the heart of Old Town Qingdao is a great place to be. Grab a bag of beer from the many vendors in the area and go exploring. While from a Western point of view the toilets could use a little work, overall I enjoyed my experience at this hostel, the staff were nice and helpful, and offered advice on how we should spend our day.

Thank you very much for your comment. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay in our hostel. Hope to see you soon.

Staff was very helpful and the bar was very nice and modern. The facilites are a bit out-dated and the rooms are very simple, but it is cleaned on a daily basis and you can tell that from what you see. Even though the location is good there are other youthhostels even closer to the seaside, if you fancy that. For average aspirations it is perfectly located.
