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!
A true experience, only for intrepid travellers! Book only if you like to play twister or are tired of soft beds. Good value for money though ;)
Well, it is more like a flat on the 15th floor, not a big hostel. It is pretty tiny, but nice, and you should get in your "family mood" to have a good time there. The location is good and thanks to the new description of finding a way, that should not be a problem. Staff is nice. There is no option to buy any food or drinks there, so come prepared, and you can use a kitchen, what is nice.
If u want to happily wander around Shenzhen, this hostel is as central as it can get! The lady who runs the place is friendly, as is her assistant. Here then is my take on how to find the place: from line 1 (green line), get off at the station "shopping center" and NOT "exhibition n convention". Exit at exit A. you will find yourself on a "shopping link"; walk for 30 meters looking for exit B4 on your right. At street level, u cannot miss an orange brown 40 story apartment condo 1.5 km ahead.
I had a lovely stay at the Shenzhen Wanderer Hostel - the people there are very nice, and the location is just excellent! The beds are normal bunk beds, nothing special, but clean! + the view over central Shenzhen at night is spectacular!
