Bed linnen was moist, there was a rat in the room, there was fungus on the bedlinnen, wifi doesn't work in the morning, shower is with sun-boiler thus ice-cold when cloudy and the bathroom is smelly. Definately the worst hostel during our stay in China.

1st day we checked in, we were very impressed with its special local contents. Then it was spoiled when piped water supply stopped. The hot water from solar system took hours to cool. Hence flusing toilet and taking bath were big problems. Answer was whole town same problem, but not true. We requested to check out, and eventually got our refund for 3-days stay, minusthe deposit. .The hostel should have water tank storage for emergency use.
