I love the cat that lives here, George. Our room was moldy and mildewy, though. This is my favorite hostel in Qingdao; I wish the owner and staff would do a better job of maintaining the quality of the rooms. It smelled terrible in our private room, and we never adjusted to the mildewy smell.

Cheating with Flyer. Free BBY only on Saturday. Cheating by website on flyer: 20 yuan for freeflow tsingtao. Only for 2 hours before 2030. After every beer 25 yuan. Excellent and friendly staff. Good view from the Bar. The Bar is expensive. Hostel is almost clean.
I stayed in a private room with twin beds. I have to say that the room stinks especially the bathroom. It smells like sewage. The shower is separated from the toilet placed right exactly next to the bed without a door. It was just covered with a curtain. The light is so old-school, you need to pull a string to open it. There was no switch for the toilet and shower lights. I was disappointed with the room, it was so expensive during the national holiday (october 1-7) in china.
