Albeith not in the center, almost evrything I looked for was around the corner, including: train booking office, Bookstore with maps; bank for changing money, post office. Hence for me was is the best possible location as it made to organise my onwards cycling trip very easy. Not at least of the friendly help of the staff.


improve cleanliness in the room (our was quite dusty)....and materax and pillows were "chabuduo". very nice the livingroom at the first floor, but the toilets smell was sometimes very bad! :) we asked how to reach the airport and we were suggested to go to the hotel from which buses to the airport leave once per hour for 20 yuan/person.... but the taxi is supposed to be not more than 30 kuai (according to baidu.maps)!!


No locks on the dorm doors. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice atmosphere in the communal area. Clean toilets and showers, though they could do with some updating/maintenance. Good location.


It's a very nice place, the location was near a park. It was easy to go to most places, there was a chinese BBQ which we tried at the hostel and it was tasteful and nice. We could buy some groceries at the supermarket nearby. The staff spoke good english (and french) and was helpful when we wanted to get to the airport - they were helpful too when we called them from the train station as well. Overall a nice comfortable place which we enjoyed in our trip to Xinjiang!
