This is a great Hostel. The staff are great, the facilities are clean, there is a nice courtyard to relax and good food in the living room. They had lots of boardgames and a Norwegian guy and I spent a great night playing chinese chess while the staff observed. One of the best nights I had in China. The only but is the location, but it's close to the Leqiao metro station and many buses so, even though there is not much to see in the area, it's very well connected with the rest of old Suzhou
Very nice staff. There was a problem with online booking at the staff went out of their way to help us. They were also very informative, nice, and friendly. Rooms wee clean. First floor rooms can be a little noisy but not bad.
We've stayed in about 15 hostels in China and this one is our favorite. It deserves a much high rating. The location is great; close to a metro station and near a really awesome pedestrian shopping street. The bathrooms were super clean and were the only ones we've been in in China that haven't smelled awful. You can rent towels for 5 RMB. The staff was nice and helpful and let us store our luggage there while we were out the day we left. We love this place.

Not a great place, but not bad either. Board games were available, cheap breakfast too. The location isn't the best, but I think it's just hard to be in a good location in Suzhou. You have to take a bus 30-60 minutes to get anywhere. The toilet-room was pretty disgusting: smelled terrible and had yellow stuff encrusted and flaking off the sink. Shower-room was ok. Our room had a planned platform that could have used a vacuum between the boards: q-tips and dust abundant there.
The location is easy to find, the owner and staff are friendly. However, the hostel facility is very old and dirty. It is ok to be old, but the staff should really clean the room and floor, which means it looks like they never cleaned them. Guests are required to change the bedsheets upon arrival and checkout, not just that, the bed sheets are really dirty. One blanket even had blood on it. It is disgusting.
