The location of the ac are in the head there are roaches in the room. They never change the blankets and you have to buy your own toilet paper because they don't put that in the bathrooms. It's was a terrible hostel

A great looking hostel in a fantastic location, first impressions were fantastic! The cat is adorable and having a bar/cafe right in the hostel is super convenient. However, the place was really cold and the common area was never super busy because of the weather. The dorm bathrooms were completely disgusting and clearly not cleaned regularly, which was a huge downside to an otherwise nice place! We had a good stay overall but the cleanliness and temperature issues were pretty frustrating.

Good and nice staff and very nice area. What I didn't like was the cleaning level... In the dorm I stayed at for five days, multipul travelers came in and out. The bedding was not changed once...

The location, even though hard to find at first, was great. Surrounded by plenty of things to see and do. However the lobby was absolutely freezing!!! so it was always empty unless you wear layers, which is not comfortable. There was only one girl in the reception that spoke English which was great, but hard when she wasn't there. The showers are in the lobby so if you want the toilet or a shower you have to walk through the lobby. :( They don't change the bedding. Not very hygienic

There was a small draft in the window which made the room very cold. The air conditioning made a lot of noise. Otherwise nice atmosphere in the hostel, and the shower was great!

Staff was friendly, location was great with a 10 minute walk to 2 different subway stations. Family friendly with pool and foosball that my 9 year old son absolutely loved and engaged other guests in rousing matches. Room could have been in a little cleaner but really suited us well. The 3 bedroom suite with a double and twin bed worked for our family of essentially 3 adults and the 9 year old. Would highly recommend this hostel for families or singles.

why isn't there a restroom on the second floor, which is the same floor as the dorms? Why are your workers breaking into private rooms hassling customers in the middle of the night for trivial issues? why would you keep the doors to the outside open all day and night knowing that the customers room are nearby?

This is in the heart of the tourist which has it perks- you are close to tourist things. But if you explore around you can see the local side. The hostel was okay for cleanliness in China. I have seen cleaner in China. Bed was fine but the room had no window. The best thing about this hostel was the shower. I have lived in China for the past five months and showers here are just bad. This one was life changing-super hot water and amazing water pressure. I almost cried from happiness.

The water is very powerful and hot. However, the bunk mattress is very hard. The stair for going to upper bunk of bed seems dangerous and did make a lot of noise. Please fix it. Some staffs are cool and not willing to provide information. Thanks.

Location is good. Just right in the must visit place - Fuzimiao. But it is not value for the price. I stayed in a double room which price is enough to stay in a little hotel. But they don't even provide towels and lighting is bad. I stayed for 5 nights but no one come empty the bin if I don't request. Some of the staff are not friendly and helpful. 2 girls are quite rude to my friend and the staff there don't even tell me where the nearest drugs store and hospital is when I got fever in midnight

The location is really nice as located central ancient town. It was easy to get local foods and souvenirs. The lounge he no people basically because it's cold. They just use a vinyl curtain for the main gate. Even though they have an air conditioner, cold wind gets inside all the time. Room was simple and clean. But the beds creak excruciatingly. It's difficult to use top bunk. Fortunately I stayed with other three guys in ten people room. I was charged 25RMB delay fee when I checked out.

The location is good - right in the centre of the old/tourist district :) the in house cafe/bar is nice too, with a nice resident cat :) only issue is, you have to go through it from the rooms to go to the common bathroom...

The position was excellent. I booked a double room that was too expensive for the conditions of cleanliness. Just for one night is ok, if you don't mind the disgusting smell of chao tofu all day

Enjoyable stay, value for money.

paid for an 8 bed dorm for 6 people, got a 6 bed dorm which was good. however, the room was really small & the beds creaked so loudly that myself and others in the room were woken up any time anyone on a top bunk moved. my bed also had black hair in it and underneath the pillow so i don't think they change the bedding for new guests. mild inconvenience walking through the bar to get to the showers and toilets. not good for lone western travellers, but OK for a short stay in a group.

No towels and toilet paper in the rooms. The bathroom was very dirty and we faced some cockroachs in our room.

The staff was friendly. Nice location (easy to get to with their directions) near two different metro lines, busy if not kitschy area at night near Fuzi Temple (cheaper food by the metro stations). One large bathroom shared by all the dorm rooms, but had enough stalls. The room didn't have a window so it was a little musty, but the AC made it better.
