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.

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.

This hostel is in a big old building so the rooms were huge. There's a nice bar area downstairs which also served as a public cafe. The staff were nice and there was some great local food around, especially the nearby fish market where you can get your dinner cooked freshly. The only bad thing about this place was the funny smell in our toilet. It was clean but it would smell really bad if you didn't keep the fan on.

I rarely give reviews over 90% but my stay at Kaiyue was phenomenal. The location was great, just off of Zhongshan road and within walking distance of the old city sights. Dorms were huge and well kept. Good atmosphere in the adjoining restaurant/bar with a pool table, foosball, music and movies. Can't say enough about the staff, in particular Gang and Frank. Best hostel I've been to in China.

Private 2-bed basic room had big full-sized beds. The staff was wonderful and helped us plan our days. Cafe Jinn stays open until 1 AM, so don't be worried when they turn all the lights on at 12 AM. You still have another hour ;) If you take the 702 airport bus, get off at Shi Li Yiyuan, walk through the underpass and take a right and the road will veer toward the left, left on Liaocheng Lu, right on Yucheng Lu, and the hostel will be on your left. Thank you, Ingrid!

There were nice staffs and facilities. Everything is okay and nice but I felt inconvenience about smells of the bathroom. (My room included one bathroom.) It was not serious if I close the door of the bathroom.
