Stayed there only one night. Definitely liked it. Kinda far from subway station. Very helpful staff. Will stay here if I stay in Shenzhen again.

The main issue with this place is that it is difficult to find. We were at the 15th floor of the right building as indicated in the email, but they recently moved to another floor (12) and there was no indication. The guard downstairs could not help as He doesnt speak english. This place is actually an apartment and not a real hostel. We could not close our room because there is no key but they have small lockers. The area is in the middle of the city but not animated. I preferred luohu area.

This place is ok for a night i guess. The bedrooms are small but perfectly fine. The bathroom tho is a bit average, there is only one for what must be up to 20 people or so, also there doesnt seem to be a drain for the shower water. The public areas seemed to be constantly inhabited by the owners and their friends. If your just making a stop over on the way to Hong Kong its fine, it is near to one of the border crossings, otherwise there is a pretty good YHA in Shenzhen. *address 12th floor


Really appreciate the hostel's staffs especially kevin who've help me on lots of things during my stay, noting the Translating part. The hostel is on the 12th floor of an apartment where its atmosphere & cleanliness is decent, with bits of everything in terms of facilities, except for a bar though but they are willing to bring out all their drinks in the common area every night, or even to bring you out for some Bar hopping. To Conclude, Shenzhen Wanderer Hostel is nice place to stay. Cheers

Kind of far from subway station, which itself is quite difficult to navigate (not hostel's fault but finding the right exit from inside was impossible to me). Location in building changed (now 12th floor!) so the instructions should be updated! Staff are nice and friendly, atmosphere is good since it's an apartment (with nice view) that can just accommodate few people. Only real con is really tiny room (or too much beds cramped in there).


Generally a pleasant experience with friendly staff and a laid-back atmosphere. I wonder if they noticed that I left behind some clothes by mistake. If so, it would be nice if they could contact me here or by email and I could get those clothes when I go back to their hostel in about 2 months.


The staff is really nice and keep the hostel very clean. Clean bathroom, clean sheets, clean common room. Also the staff are helpful for directions, the location is next to Chinese and western resources if needing, and safety is good.
