Staff was very helpful. Just a great place!


They didn't have a single room the first night, so they put me in a better room, which was nice. Afterwards, I was in a nice single room. I killed two cockroaches the first night, although the room looked clean. Do ask for the mosquito repellent, it's necessary even in winter.


- The directions could be improved in the „walk 200m“ part. - You could explain how to get drinking water (boil it? take it from the tap?).


It was a nice facility with a few issues. First, I woke up in the middle of the night every night to mosquitos buzzing at my ear and bug bites all over my hands and faceless the housekeepers laughing and chatting at 8:30 am. Second, the Internet connection was terrible. When I asked about it I was told to use the downstairs but no one even attempted to repair the upstairs. The location was great and the facility was nice. I wish the staff was more helpful and knowledgeable.


This hostel was very nice! Staff was friendly and the lobby was calm and quiet through night, no parties. The location was further away from the subway station than I first expected, about 15 min walk. But it was cheap and clean, which was most important.


The room was good value, quiet, and had all the facilities I needed. There were some mosquitos in the room and I got a few bites - some measures to prevent that would be nice.

The staff were not very helpful. The the hostel was not as good as the reviews say it was. Better hostels for better prices nearby


Beautiful place on a quiet area .next to paerl river, where manager Fiona does a great Job. The place is very clean and staff very friendly .big beds and soft matrasses as the Nice show er makes it a very Nice place to stay .was in this house before and will come back next time


Excellent value for money. Easy to get to...and cheap food locally. WIFI everywhere, but not a strong signal.


The internet connection was quite poor, which made everyone struggle in the common area. Furthermore, the dryer was broken, so clothes weren't dry after 36 hours. However, the staff was really helpful especially with booking train tickets. This was a big bonus! Also, it was very nice that the pool table was for free and the common area had a relaxed atmosphere, this made the rainy days very comfortable.


One of the best hostels I have stayed in China.


Nice hostel. Very modern. China needs more of these, not those apartments being pegged as hostels but are really apartments.
