nice enough, bathrooms and mattresses are a bit grotty but bearable if you are only there for a handful of nights. staff were great when I left my bag over night to go to Gulangyu. location is ok a little hard to find. showers had no water pressure and they close everything at 11, you can't even sit in the common room which is weird... overall average, ok place to stay.
toilets and showers are not many; one or two are boarded up and not for use.
The hostel is located downstairs the yard gate which makes is really difficult to carry a luggage n go down the long narrow slippery stairs before check in. There s no bathroom in the room which is unreasonanle considering the climate in Amoy. Plus the quality of the bed is quite poor, i saw a skinny girl breaking it by accident when she tried to grab the handle to get down from upper stairs of the bed.
Very quiet place with nice atmosphere, clean enough, helpful and friendly staff, good beds. No complains!
The hostel has an excellent atmosphere and perfect location to explore Xiamen, the University, Nanputuo temple and just a short bus ride to the Gulangyu ferry terminal. The building is probably a bit older and would need a renovation, but it's in acceptable conditions after all.
Second time visiting this hostel as its a great location and really clean! The girls who work there are great, really helpful, but i think the boys need more training- in customer service.
