They have smelly bedsheets as if they were not washed.


A very pleasant place to stay. Just a small problem about the drainage pipe under my sink, but it got fixed quickly.


This is the worst hostel I've EVER stayed in! The room and bathroom were very dirty. Also, there was NEVER toilet paper. None of the lockers locked and the beds were hard as rocks. Worst of all, when we tried to leave they pointed at some broken light, said we broke it and wanted us to pay a lot of money for a new one. The girl who works there physically grabbed my arm when I refused and started screaming 'This is China!' The owner came down and locked us in the complex to extort the money.


Excellent Location, in the centre of everything! Close to the city center and the ferry to Gulang yu. The Family who owns the hostel is extremly nice and helpfull - especially since they can actually speak englisch! They helped us a lot with general information as well as the arrangement of tours. Since the hostel is directly located in the old town/street market district it can be noisy at night, thats the price you pay for the excellent location. We didn´t mind and just used earplugs. :-)


Staff wasnt very nice and locked the door at night so we had to ring the bell for 10-15mins before someone finally opened the gate, cursing us in Chinese. Rooms and bathrooms are particularly clean, however, the location is very nice and just a few minutes from the main part of the city


Nice place where you can meet people from around the world. In female dorm toilet was broken so we had to go to public rest room. Also our dorm wasn't cleaned a few days.


Great! It's my favourite hostel in Xiamen! Very comfortable and convenient!


The staff of Baijiacun is helpful and nice. The location is very good and easy to find, and it is near to the night market with 10-15minutes walk.


Perfect location in downtown Xiamen with a nice garden and frienly staff. Bed was china-hard, but bathroom was fine. Noisy neighbors but this is a hostel so don't expect guests to be any better.

It was a pity not to be able to get breakfast this time!


The location was excellent, right in the city center, walking distance from the shopping main road and very easy to find. The atmosphere was so nice, they should take better pictures of the hostel, when we arrived we had even a better impression about how cute it was and how average it looks on the pics. Only issue was that you have to go downstairs for toilet paper, they also have the cutest little bar and cafe, but there is nobody who attends it.
