Nice enough place, good location and garden area. Not much atmosphere though. Beds are rock hard, literally! Privacy curtains and lockers are nice. Toilets and showers never smelled too sweet. If the interiors were spruced up and matched the garden and exterior then it would be a great place! Chinese-western brew pubs and cafes 15-20 mins wa away. *Be warned* the nearby ferry terminal is not for non-Xiamen folk (except at night) so you have a bus or two ride out of town to the tourist terminal.


the toilet facilities need to improve in cleanliness, the beds are pretty hard, which for some guests might present a problem, and the sleeping facilities as a whole don't live up to the standard set by the very nice outside area. This hostel has potential, but also potential for improvement. 厕所和洗澡间要干净,床位的房子不如很漂亮的外面的小院好看。地位特别好。旅社不错,但也有会好点的地方。

The location is good because 10mn walking from the pier, but recently the Xiamen gov changed the pier for tourists more north, so not as useful as I thought. Then the hotel is built just next to a street, and you might end up in one of the dorm facing the street. The noise is bearable, but be prepared thoug. Finally, we had people checking in at 4am in the morning, making lot of noise for one hour at least. Except the staff was not really helpful on this particular problem, they were very nice.


As a whole, it is a good choice.


The air conditioning broke and were were forced to rely on nothing more than a fan to keep eight people cool. Was not an easy nights sleep to say the least.
