This is an amazing place. It was very quite so it must have been the time of year. But the view from this place is spectacular. The coffee is good, the breakfast is average for hostel in China. I would recommend this to anyone.

Excellent position on the hill in an interesting building. Staff very friendly. A friendly hostel run by friendly people. Rooms were comfy enough, but could do with a refurb.

Nice place to stay. A little hard to get to since it is on top of a hill but that also makes for a decent view from the roof. It is an old observatory after all. Most of the staff had decent English and were very apologetic when they messed up my laundry. They redid the laundry and gave me a refund for it, then organized a ride to the train station for me. Rooms and bathrooms are good. Not terribly far from the beach and you can take the bus or relatively cheap taxis to the beer museum and such.

This hostel had surely been good some years ago, so only the newer reviews seem to be reliable. The hostel was really dirty and the showers either had boiling hot water or did not exist at all in the rooms. In the evening we did not have running water for several hours. Futhermore sometimes the water coming from the tap was brown and dirty. The location up on a hill can only be reached by taxi or walking. Nevertheless the observation deck is worth a view. Go there for a cup of coffee :-)

Bedding didn't seem super clean, smelled a bit and the ac just moved the air, didn't cool it. At the top of a hill...very quiet, but directions to hostel lacking clarity. Price for a private room really reasonable, but I'll probably try a different hostel next time I'm in Qingdao.
