Centrally located in Qufu within walking distance of all the Confucius sites. Horse carriages, motorized rickshaws and inexpensive taxis are everywhere. It has clean facilities, a nice restaurant with a varied selection of local and western food and an inviting environment. Well worth the stay and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Qufu.


This is a great place to stay if you want to get a bit off the beaten track.


Security- In the dorms, no cabinet was provided for me to store my stuff.This means that Id have to store my bags at the desk or leave them on my bed. Location- close to sites, quiet area of town. Staff- decent. Cleanliness- soso Value For Money- The restaurant is better and cheaper than many other hostels that ive been to in China. decent common area Facilities- OK Overall- Honestly, this is a good hostel. Unless the cabinet issue is solved, either don't bring valuables, or book a private room.


Helpful and friendly staff, awesome location (all the major sights can be reached walking). Have been there in winter, so the showers were kind of freezing (partly broken, has to be fixed!!) and tooth brushing outside with minus 9 degrees wasnt pleasant either. But the hot tea the bar offers was perfect to get me warm again ;) The toilets were clean but smelled like piss, sorry :( If the taxi driver hadnt know the hostel i would have had trouble finding it as there was no exact adress given.


it was the best of hostels, it was the worst of hostels. the linen is pristine but the dorm beds are rough (and the a.c. was out of order). the toilets are functional but out in the cold. the food is pretty decent but they might mess up your order. the staff is very kind but speaks limited english. the private rooms are amazing, though - well worth it if you're in a group. expats will be found at the hostel pub on weekends. in any case, it's not as if there's a lot of choice in qufu anyway.

Thanks for your advice.We will try my best to do it.


This hostel atmosphere is so good. you can meet lots of people from other country. The location is perfect for sight seeing.


Qufu International Youth Hostel is honestly one of the best hostels I've stayed in in China. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, the shower hot and well-pressured. The common area has a pool table, plus the restaurant has under-priced (read: 15-20 RMB for both Western and Chinese dishes, with a few more expensive choices at around 25-30 RMB). The location is great, as well - inside the ancient city, within 15-20 minute walk from all 3 Confucius sites. No complaints!


Do not go there unless you speech Chinese...we planned to stay 2 days but one night was enough to put us off...nice town thou but I have only bad words for the hostel...room wasn't clean for wks (hair on the floor, full bin), hard bed, bathrooms outside, salty food, no English map and the list goes on...
