The people were great at the hostel, met a lot of new friends. Location is pretty good, once you find the place. It was a great place for a weekend. Just be prepared fro cramped rooms and one huge bathroom in the lobby area.

Great location, very close to the Confucius Temple, 1912, and really anything you want to get to in the city. The rooms/beds are not the best and the beer in the whole city, including the hostel, is very overpriced. But if you're looking for something fairly cheap and just staying for a night or two, I say go for it!

A good place to stay, with very friendly and helpful staff! It was just a bit could if one was sitting in the bar/common room area otherwise a good place.

I really don't have any complaints about my stay at Sunflower. The staff was friendly enough, the location is good (near lots of shopping and food), and the beds were actually more comfortable than I had anticipated. They also have a cafe in the hostel with moderately-priced food that was EXCELLENT. My spaghetti carbonara= best part of my stay. Like other guests mentioned, the restroom location is the biggest downside...definitely awkward to walk past everyone on your way to the shower.

This hostel is located in Fuzimiao district, a bustling, noisy, heavily touristed part of Nanjing. The noise and smells come into the hostel. The bar is ridiculously expensive, selling an odd array of imported beers to a nonexistent market. the majority of staff seemed quite irritated with my presence (not the girls behind the counter). Bathroom is ok, dorms are tiny. Ping pong and pool table, but no real atmosphere to mention.

At a great location, 10 minutes' walk to the nearest metro station. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable that helped me al lot. Coffee and cocktail were very good and at a reasonable price.

I liked the location, helpfulness of the staff and facilities in the common area. I disliked that at least 3 of the breakfast options listed on the menu were not available and that the date on the imported beer I bought was scratched off to conceal that it was past its safe date. Also, our room smelled like a toilet, which only became worse when opening the window because outside it smelled like piss as well. And the cleaning staff started at 7am, making a lot of noise and thus waking us up.

Four of us (guys and girls) booked a mixed 6-bed dorm. Upon check-in, they let us know that there are no mixed bed dorms and there are only 8-bed dorms. That being said, the facilities were clean and the location was pretty good.

The hostel is in a great location in the Fuzimao area. It is quite busy though and noisy so if you're looking for a bit of quiet, this might not be the greatest area. I liked the hotel except for the restroom/showers. The main lobby is actually a public cafe and the restaurants and showers are located off this cafe. In order to use them, you must walk through the cafe and many people can come in while you are trying to use them. The staff was incredibly friendly and healthy though.

Most of the showers and washroom doors were broken; incredibly easy to fix, yet nothing had been done. The layout of the hostel is also weird as you have to walk straight through the Middle of the lobby area whenever you want to use the washrooms, not great if occasionally you value a snippet of privacy. The night manager wan't nice but the other staff were friendly. Mostly Chinese visitor staying when I went so It didn't have the great foreigner atmosphere. They turn the lobby lights off 12pm..

The location of the hotel is convenient for sightseeing, the dorm room is fine, but small. The cleanliness of the bathroom should be improved! The rest is fine.

Great location for a hostel and very easy to find. They don't accept international credit or debit cards which wasn't mentioned upon booking. The shower and wash area could do with a facelift but other than that it was good value for money

I live in Shanghai and stayed for 3 nights in a private room as a weekend getaway to see the sights of Nanjing. Staff was friendly and, although their English was limited, we could communicate well enough (knowing a little Chinese helped). The room was quiet and reasonably comfortable (by Chinese standards with a hard bed). All in all, it was a better experience than I was prepared for given the other reviews on this site.

Location is nice. For moving, from this hostel to any other sightseeing places, very convenience. This hostel is very closed by Nanjing's famous sightseeing place fuzimiao(夫子庙) but hostel's facilities are little bit poor. Specially the bed in 4people dorm is so noisy and not fixed on the floor. Very tired to go up and down. Not every staff can speak English but they're kind.

The beds were surprisingly comfortable. The heating in the room was good. The location is good too. But the bathrooms need a lot of work. Half of the toilets didn't work and were really dirty. But overall, not bad for the price that you pay.

The hostel was empty when I came so it lacked atmosphere, and it was really cold in the common rooms. Appart from that it was a good hostel rather well located!

The staff kindly moved us when we requested a room change as the first room we were given had a terrible smell from the bathroom that filled the room. The second room was fine except for the customary rock hard bed in China.

The bathrooms are below standard concerning cleanliness and facilities.

There's no lift, so if you've got a lot of luggage it might be challenging.
