Good as a base for a short visit, the bedrooms were basic but expected however there were no towels available at all, even for hire, the bathroom was outside and freezing and the shower didn't work properly. It says it has facilities like a restaurant and a cafe, but they didn't serve food at all, and whenever we asked the staff a question they'd give an unhelpful response and then giggle to themselves.
I really enjoyed my staying at this hostel! People are amazingly friendly, rooms are clean and spacious, the whole place is full of those cute paintings on the wall, the bar is also great, and most important of all, many of the city attractions are really near this place. Overall atmosphere is really great! I would highly recommend anyone to come to this hostel. P.S. They have two amazingly amiable cats!😃
Fine little spot, describing it as a simple 10 minute walk from the Suzhou train station isn't quite accurate, maybe if your usain bolt, a brisk 30 minutes is accurate. Staff were helpful, assisted us with trying to locate some local watering holes, the bar area looked quite lively during our couple of minutes there. Rooms were good value for the 35rmb a bed per night, came across some helpful 中国人 fellow travellers. Overall for the money a bargain location and well worth the RMB.
It seems to be a hostel full of locals...while the staff really struggled with english, they did try their hardest :) The location a lot further from the station than mentioned though - not as easy to walk as it sounded... the ensuite bathroom/room was not very clean (even for china...), and the whole place seems pretty run down and in need of maintenance...
Nice place. But they did not offer to change my room to give me a cheaper rate. I ended up paying for a double even though there was just one person.

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.
