We were 3 in the room (family bedroom for 3 people) and we have only 2 towels. Maybe some bathroom furniture can be added in the room. The kittens are a real plus.
The staff at check-in was super friendly and amazingly helpful. The staff at check-out was a bit less accommodating but still somewhat helpful.
The staff during the first day was nice, but in the next morning we really were in a hurry to take the train to go to Xian, so we ask in the reception to call a taxi and the said that they can't use the phone to call a taxi because they already call a taxi for someone else or something like that,,,we tried to explain to them but they didn't even tray to help us.
Good location in the city centre. Impractical to walk from the train station in the summer heat, but only a 10 minute walk from the North Pagoda bus stop. Bike rental is 25y/day for a regular city bike and 45y/day for a mountain bike. The city bike seemed almost brand new and was very comfortable and worked perfectly all day. No locker in the room, but ensuite bathroom was nice. Water purifying machines were freely available. Cool bar with live music next door, very few other foreigners.
The location was excellent. It is close to a Railway Station, and Humble Administrator's Garden and Beisi Tower were in a walking distance. All staffs were really nice. At the last day, we couldn't use an elevator since the hostel was a blackout in the morning. So one of the staffs helped us to carry our heavy luggage down from 4th floor. I will definitely stay in this hostel again next time.
Location is fairly good with restaurants and mini markets across the street and spots of interest in the city at a walkable distance. Drawback is that hostel has almost only chinese guests and staff seems to be annoyed with foreigners that don't speak chinese. Beds are ok, bathrooms facilities are poor and need to be improved.
