A lovely, quaint little hostel with very cozy rooms. I'd stay there again if I go back to Suzhou.
Loved the olde-world character of this charming courtyard hostel.

We were staying at 4-bed dorm on the 1st floor. Mattress on the bed were very thin (warn out probably) so you have the feeling that you are lying on flat surface. Suggestion is to replace them. There was shower room in the ground floor. Suggestion is to keep shower room more clean(clean regulary) and add wooden bars on the floor (more hygienic). With these small correction cleanless impression would be much better. Other areas are kept vey clean. Beside these remarks stuff very friendly.
I really loved this place. So nice, cosy and comfortable. It's in a small alley, so very quiet at night. In the middle of the city. Everything can be reached by bus stop close by very fast. Also many places to eat around. Staff was very nice and helpful. Wifi in Rooms!!!
Good location but theres a HI hostel closer to the action of Suzhou. Lovely place though.
Very Nice and helpful staf! Very hard bed though
We felt welcome and it. was a nice atmosphere in the hostel. IT is not à party hotel but more of a 'sittning in someones Livingroom vibe'. God kithen, washing mashine the lot.

Even though we did not get the opportunity to stay at this hostel due to our own negligence, the staff was very friendly and tried to help out to the best of their ability.
It‘s THE PERFECT HOSTEL. Almost feels like a resort. Comfy beds, large lockers, a lot of movies, Skype, good wifi, awesome courtyard and relax area, good location, friendly staff, fridge, etc. simply everything you need....
Honestly, if you have other choices in Suzhou I would go there instead. We found the staff quite rude: when we asked for directions they told us to 'find it ourselves', and they decided to put us in a 6 bed dorm rather than the 4 bed dorm I had booked, implying that not receiving the room I wanted was my fault for booking so late. Location is also a bit far from some major sights. Aside from that, the facilities are good, the rooms and bathrooms are clean and they have a lovely outside area.
This is a very cool hostel. Our room had a second floor with a stair case that led up to our bed. They have a very large lounge room with lots of boardgames, DVDs with two tvs in its own mini cove that you can watch, xbox and bikes that you can rent for cheap. We decided to rent one and one of the girls that worked there biked with us to show us how to get to Shangtang street! I cant say enough about how great the staff are. I would stay here again!
A nice hostel in a solidly central location in the center of old Suzhou. The place is clean and well staffed, with a nice courtyard out back. The only downsides is the age and deterioration of the place, with some TLC needed in certain places.
Beautiful hostel, friendly staff, big rooms and great facilities. Thank you!
It was clean and very cozy. The atmosphere was very nice, and the location is pretty good. Bike rental is very convenient, cheap and easy. The staff was helpful and very cheerful (and the dog).
The hostel had cheap laundry, spoke English fine, and were able to direct you where you wanted to go
The location, as far as I could tell, was not great. It's a bit out of the way. The place wasn't busy, but even so the staff didn't seem too helpful. They would answer questions, probably not volunteer too much info. There were SO MANY mosquitoes. They offered bug spray, but I think they could do more about the problem. The breakfasts on the menu were quite simple and so I chose to eat elsewhere. It wasn't bad, but I wouldn't stay there again. Low price and atmosphere are the strong points here.
Cool place, good facilities, clean room, big dog, no smoking anywhere
Lovely set up, nice courtyard and reading rooms, you can really sit back and relax. Large library in lots of different languages but no book swap which i thought was a shame!
