The directions given on hostelworld.com however are pretty useless, if you arive at Taian train station instead of Taishan train station. When I arived there around 10 pm, there were no more buses going at all. However, even if you arive there during the day, the buses listed on the website don't depart from there. You have to take a bus to the Taishan train station first and take one of the buses mentioned to Tongtian street. Dorms and facilities were low standard, rooms have no windows.
No information at the desk about anything to visit. No prices information. Staff is not very kind appart of this young girl with glasses who seems to be new and willing to help and who can speak a little bit of english. For an international hostel, it is a shame that we don't get more help. In the room of 6 beds, there a only 4 plugs around 2 beds. Not enough light in the bathroom. Television in the lobby doesn't work. No atmosphere, no fun. So boring.
Perfect location and transportation, considerate staff with poor English, good facilities inside and outside the room. I like the air conditioner in the room, which makes the room very comfortable and fresh. However, the hostel doesn't provide any platform to let guests know each other and climb the mountain together, which becomes a pity especially for solo traveler.
Nice place to stay in Tai'an, very close to restaurants, the Dai Temple, and only a 20 minutes walk from the entrance of Taishan mountain. Rooms very nice, especially the ones on 4th floor! Thanks for the great time!
Why there are no mixed dormitory rooms? Are we living in the 16th century? Further, on the homepage we booked mixed dormitory rooms.
Good location close to cheap eateries and the Dai Temple. Staff is friendly and helpful but only basic English is spoken. There's not much of a social atmosphere, as the common room is not really a place where you want to hang out. The dorm rooms are actually quite nice, with big beds and private lockers, but the common bathroom and toilets are incredibly filthy and in very bad repair. I'm usually not picky, but because of this I wouldn't recommend staying here.
Thank you for very nice stay and helping us to organize trip up to Taishan! Hostel is very flexible with left luggage options -which we really appretiated
Hostel personal was too loud. At 5:30 started to speak with high voice in corridor , I was not able to sleep.
We were made welcome, staff were helpful and room completely adequate.
