This is definitely a nice hostel, but it was hard for me to find the location, since it is on the 14th floor in an apartment block middle of a residential area, and the Chinese think 14 is an unlucky number so they renamed the floor 15A. The staff was nice and friendly, but you have to take off your shoes when you enter the hostel. Most of people staying there are Chinese males with limited to good English speaking ability. There is also a reclusive American black guy living there not friendly.
Initially we have booked a double room, but were put into 4beds room. For that we have paid less for our stay... Anyway it's a flat where people just rent beds, it's more then enough if you need just a place to spend your night. One more thing, winter time - no heating, and one blanket, definitely, was not enough.
Lisa was great. Everyone was very nice. However, the hostel was hard to find. I ended up having to take a taxi in order to get there.
A small hostel that adds to the atmosphere. The staff are excellent and could not have been more helpful along with others staying at the hostel. Give my love to Lisa.
second time i am staying here! location is ideal, altho it might be a bit difficult to find the first time around. host lisa is quite house-proud (outdoors shoes to be exchanged for sandals at the door, please!), but there is always a bevy of her friends visiting to make the place a very congenial and homely one. here's a tip on how to find the place: from metro station 'Shopping Park', leave from exit A, turn right, walk 60 meters and exit from exit B4 (NO TYPO!) head for brown condo 1 km away
Different... basically someone decided their apartment could be a hostel if they put bunks in the rooms and posted the wifi password in the living room. 10+ people with one bathroom in a two bedroom flat :/. This makes perhaps an 'intimate' atmosphere, but I felt uncomfortable to be honest. Bathroom floor is perpetually wet so the sandals are useful :P. The 'staff' is helpful but not confident with English, and the area is a sea of apartment complexes. Not my kind of 'hostel', but maybe yours!
