Really nice hostel. Professional and helpful staff! Good position with a 30 minutes walk to the wharf. Recommended!


I stayed in the 4dormitory. This place is very confortable: Nice rom, Nice courtyard, Nice lobby. Internet works well everywhere. I definitly recommand this place to stay. One of my favorite if not my n'est place un china.


This is a really delightful hostel. It was really quiet and I was woken by birds in the mornings. There were trees and shady outside areas to sit and cosy indoor spaces. I stayed in a dorm and found the bed comfortable and with some privacy and there were lockers, shelf space, and very good bathrooms. The staff were great, going to a lot of trouble and providing information, There was a little kitchen to do your own cooking and plenty of nearby places to eat and buy food.


Excellent hostel , very clean , right next to the Uniersity and a short walk to the coast. Excellent common areas with a really relaxed vibe. Just one thing....a little hand soap in the bathrooms has never hurt anyone!;)


Very clean and well-maintained hostel. The staff were very helpful with directions and helping us with Chinese addresses. The hostel is near Xiamen University and has a TON of coffee shops around. The temple is very close and the beach is not too far. It's a little far from the central area but it is close to many bus stops, which the staff can help you navigate. There isn't a large social atmosphere but it was a peaceful place to stay.


Stayed in four bed dorm. Clean, comfortable enough bed with decent en suite shower. Location excellent, with loads of good local restaurants, independent cafes and even a handful of craft beer breweries/bars close by due to proximity of university, and walking distance to coast and Zhongshan Rd. All in all a very pleasant stay in a well maintained, friendly hostel. Reccommended.

Recently renovated hostel. Very clean and fresh - I felt comfortable right away. Highly recommend staying there because it's a great value for money. It's very close to Xiamen University and is in an interesting part of town, just off one of the main roads.


It was a nice stay there and located in quite comfy in a quite and clean neighbourhood near the university of Xiamen.


Great value. It's just across the street from a walking street with tons of food options, and it's convenient for bus travel. I would definitely stay here again.


酒店一般吧, 房间里没什么东西, 除了两张床。性价格比不高。500元一晚太贵了


Very good Hostel in xiamen City, also very quiet, safe and clean. Stuff are perfekt!


Nice and clean. Good location.


We came in late around 1 am, the staff didn't turn on the lights as we were walking in, I fell twisted my ankle. The guy there didn't apologize or try to help me up and the check in took a while. I was quite disappointed.


it's by far the best hostel I stayed in China. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The common area provides a good atmosphere to meet people and the place is just a short walking distance from the University of Xiamen and Nanputuo Temple. There are buses and many good places to eat around. The hostel facilities are pretty good and affordable. I couldn't recommend it more.


It was a very nice stay. Everything was clean and the dorm (4 people) was very nice. maybe add paper toilet and soap would be nice!

This was my second stay in Xiamen and compared to the first hostel I stayed in, this place was AMAZING! It had everything. It was clean, in a good location, easy to find, the staff spoke great English, had breakfast and a bar, and even had REAL mattresses! The staff let me leave my huge luggage in a storage room and was very helpful when I asked for a phone store. I definetly recommend this hostel to anyone who visits Xiamen.
