Good Hostel a 10 Minute bus ride from the city center. Food was tasty and reasonably priced however only breakfast and dinner were available while we stayed. Overall clean but the building did not age very well. 24/7 cheap supermarket next to the main entrance. Be aware that wifi is not available in all rooms. Staff was knowledgeable and mostly English speaking so summed up we would stay there again.


everyone helped us a great deal--the manager even took the time to help us book our flight tickets. we had a lovely stay and enjoyed our time :)

This hostel was great! We didn't know what to expect because it was kinda far away from the "old town". When we got there we were amazed by how beautiful the area was. Even better than what is inside the walls!!! Hostel was good, maybe not the best, but gooood by all means. Still the best thing was how helpful people were there! The manager speaks very good english, and arranged train tickets and even went to get them from the station for us, just like that. And FOR FREE!! And btw, the bar/loung


The hostel was clean and everything. Three things which could be better: the location - it's a little bit outside the center and if you don't speak Chinese a little bit hard to find the way back, or coming home at night without taxi - the staff - was friendly, but they speak only a little English, because most of the people living there are Chinese - no internet access in the rooms. Except of this and that you can't meet foreigners there it's a good hostel! Also the lady on the bar is very nice!
