We loved staying at the Cosy Garden. We stayed here for 8 days. Shadow, Lynsey & Joyce were all very helpful with information about the area, coordinating activities & transport, and providing a pleasant atmosphere. The location is quiet & beautiful , yet only a 5 minute bike ride to town & the lively West Street. The rooms are clean and the beds comfy. Would recommend getting a room overlooking the garden. Is quieter than street side. The kitchen was great for breakfast each morning!

Staff was so friendly and very helpful with planning our next travel steps. Make-it-yourself breakfast for 20 yuan was really great, coffee was good, garden and hangout areas were very chill and inviting. Other travelers were nice. Lovely walk along the river into town a very manageable distance away and nice to be away from the blaring pop music. Good food When we ordered from the kitchen. Hope to stay again very soon!


Great staff, thanks!!!


Exuberantly friendly staff, who made us feel warm, welcomed, and comfortable. Excellent English skills across the board, too, which is not necessarily the case in Chinese hostels. Btw, definitely join the Friday night BBQs, though know that what is meant by "BBQ" is in fact shaokao (烧烤), not Southern American-style, smoked BBQ (ribs, pulled pork, etc.). Perhaps that's obvious, though I know a number of Westerners at the meal were surprised by grilled meats on a stick. Delicious, though!
