The hostel's dog is super chill. Stayed here four nights. Dorm beds are fairly comfy, and provided linens are good quality. Reading light, shelves, and a charging outlet are super convenient! Maximum dorm size of 4 helps to keep things pretty quiet. Private bathrooms in the dorm had no toilet paper, so you either have to bring your own or grab some from the hall bathroom. Great location, tons os buses in the vicinity to wherever you want to go.
The hotel was a little tricky to find since there were two entrances, the first of which was down a side street next to a mechanic shop. However, the main one (off the next street, which was elevated) was much easier. The staff were all very friendly, and the hostel itself was very tidy, and trendy. The only thing I didn't like was that the common area closed around midnight. I understand that noise could be a problem, though a door enclosing the area would have alleviated that problem.
About a half an hour walk from zhongshan road but the location is great, heaps of coffee shops around and fun alleyways to wander down. Very close to temple and university.
I had a very happy stay there. Location, helpfulness of staff, cleanliness all are great. Particularly enjoyed the people i met and the physical space lends itself very well to that. Food and drinks could be better and/or less expensive. However, there are excellent options for that nearby. Directions need re-writing. The directions of buses can be confusing and there is no sign except right at the gate.
Stayed in the 4 mixed dorm, nice new room and very clean. Location was ok, for the first time maybe a bit difficult to find, but it is nearby a busstation. Breakfast was really good.
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!;)
Great option in Xiamen! Friendly staff and nice terrace!
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.
Very good Hostel in xiamen City, also very quiet, safe and clean. Stuff are perfekt!
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.
