It was nice to have fans in the rooms. However, laundry was overpriced (25 rmb vs 10 rmb in other hostels). And the receptionist/owner did not mention the service charge when she offered to call a cab for me. She suddenly asked for the extra money when the cab was here already and I was about to leave. Didn't mind to pay a bit more but should have been told in advance! Quite disappointing to experience this especially in a westerner-run hostel.
Excellent hostel experience. The place had a very quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My room was beautiful and had had a lovely balcony. However, there were some roosters nearby that crowed every morning from 5 to 10am. It didn't disturb my sleep though. The hostel is right by the east gate of the city, but quite far away from the city center, so you'll have to do some walking.
