Dirty lobby. The shower room is the worst and no hot water! (even though the staff said hot water is available from 8pm-12am) It's cheap and the owner doesn't really want to renovate and improve the condition of the hostel, it may most probably the hostel (or that area) is going to be taken down sooner.


Been traveling China for over a year, by far the worst hostel I've stayed in. Must walk through an alley of trash and feces to get to the front door. Staff are unhelpful and rude. Toilets have never been cleaned. Looks like it was once a nice hostel, but has been completely let go. Beds are wet, rooms reek of mold. Can twist the lockers open with your fingers, staff will not hold your valuables behind the desk ("there is no way"). There is no food or pool table as advertised. But has a cute dog


WORST HOSTEL EVER! Bad: impossible to find, down a dark alley! Said they would meet us, left us standing 20 mins, called saying they were too busy, got there to find 2 receptionist doing nothing! Every species of insect in our room:Flying, crawling, hanging, dead beetles on the floor, mould EVERYWHERE! Bedroom doors don't shut unless you padlock them! Good: They gave us our money back when we had been there 5 mins and said we were leaving. Also they blamed our experience on 'chongqing'


Don't go there! Unless you have no other option. The staff don't really care about the guests. In addition, they have a curfew at midnight which is unacceptable if you want to enjoy the city's great nightlife.


The helpful staff booked me a spot on a 4-night/3-day Chinese Yangtze River cruise.


One of the worst hostels! Mold in rooms...very stuffy! Bathrooms were scary, no toilet paper. Only good thing about this place was it was close to center. Difficult to find cuz it's located where all the torn down building are :(

Good value for money. Pretty basic, intended mainly for chinese travellers I think. Perfect if you just need a bed for the night.


The hostel was in really bad condition and need a restoration immediately. The AC in the room didn´t work and the shower was broken. When you arrive you have to walk along a path of garbage to find the entrance of the hostel.


Tina's place is perfect for the backpacker with an amzing atmosphere and awesome staff! The location is also perfect and close to subway and buses, right in the centre of CQ.


As someone else mentioned, the place is in an urgent need of restoration. The rooms smell like fungus, and the surrounding environment is full of garbage and trash all around. The only pro is the location which is quite close to the subway station and from the coach and train station (if you come from Cai Yuan Ba).


Fantastic hostel! 3 min walk from Chongqing's awsome night life. Cheap beds, washing facilities and immaculate bathroom. Excellent staff. Excellent excellent staff.

Staff is very nice. Bar on the rooftop with coffee and pastries is sweet. Location is nice. Then, no mistakes, it looks poor, it feels poor, its not like most of the international youth hostel you've been to. Dorms are bad, i recommand rooms . If it's for a short stay, it's ok.
