you have a calm hostel, with warm atmosphere...the little courtyard is very nice, so good to have a place to sit outside and have a chat. the pond, the half open rooms, almost pagoda in a modern way.. it creates a simple and cozy atmosphere! You chose a nice spot in the city to have a hostel... a bit seperated from the busy city ...to retreat....calm down. thanks for the coffee in the morning! i really enjoy local food...i think it would be nice to offer some simple chinese breakfast too!

The bathroom, the toilet and bed is very clean. Generally Front desk staff are helpful. the only point I am very unsatisfactory is attitude of staff who are responsible room clean up - there are 3 amahs coming room together, clean the room noisily (keep on chatting). One of them sweeps the floor and try to throw away the bottle that I need to use. When I stopped her she is very unhappy and cursed me. Another amah gave me a broken big towel.

so close to 2 train stations and located very well. you have to ring to get in at night as they lock the door but the night staff guy is SO nice (though he doesn't speak English). very clean.... better cared for than a "four star" hotel we stayed at in beijing to be honest

Amazing and huge outdoor and common areas. Bar and pool table are fun spots to hang out. Wifi works great throughout the hostel. Loved the bathroom facilities. Great for meeting people. The only thing we didn't like about the hostel was the front door is padlocked after midnight and only one worker who can't speak English can come open the door for you. Hostel should get keys or passcode system to make it more accessible for guests. Other than that, really loved it here!

Excellent location, close to metro. Very nice reception area. The rooms were small but clean. When asking for tips and information we were helped quite well (especially for Chinese standards).

I recommend the hostel offer tourist recommendations - they didn't even know about the Propaganda Art Center nearby.

lovely breakfast, close to the subway; my friend and i split a private bedroom and it was clean, air conditioning was great. no soap and very small towels, and the shower was transparent so we kinda had to stay out of the washroom area. had a discount on coffee for the first day [so necessary] and the layout of the hostel was one of the nicest i've stayed at in china!

Pros: - Good location, close to metro lines and several shopping malls. It takes about an hour to walk to Nanning road. - Book lending/exchange service. - Fridge/laundry facilities. - Lockers provided and you can fit a large rucksack in. - Friendly staff who will book activities for you if you so wish. Cons: - Poor wifi; painfully slow and difficult to load. - The corridors had an aroma of wet dog and the surrounding streets smelt like urine. - Really small dorm rooms.
