The hostel was in a great location. The rooms were functional and what we needed as backpackers but the floor were very dated, the walls were thin and the streets outside pretty loud but we were tired enough and slept through it.

Great location and food. The architecture of the hostal is amazing however the facilities are not the best. The bathroom and toilets are really inconvenient and extremely cold, the staff was not helpful at all and the rooms can be improved. Everything you read in the other reviews is true, if you still want to book a bed here DO NOT book the cheapest one.

It truly is a stunning building and a pleasure to stay in. I emailed the hostel to arrange a free pickup from the station, but heard nothing back. To my surprise somebody was waiting for us when we arrived! The staff weren't particularly helpful but they provide a map of the city and as long as your competent, it's easily navigated.

- no working air condition in our room with -7*C - the electrical bed sheets didn't work either - the windows are not isolated so the wind literally goes through the building - there is a constant shortage of toilet paper - the toilets themselves should be renewed => if you want to live as Chinese did in the past, go for it - there are no safe deposit boxes - the internet computer does not work

The dorm was freezing cold, the heater did not work, of the 7 beds only 2 had working electric blankets. The bathroom was across a courtyard and again freezing cold, as well as being very dirty and in need of a refit. The lock to our room broke and was not replaced, plus it could not be locked from the inside. It's only positive was the price, be prepared for what your getting into, it might be ok in summer, but I would not suggest anyone stay in winter!

Yamen Youth Hostel is located in the heart of Pingyao, within the walled ancient city. The hostel is a courtyard so the rooms are quite different than your typical hostel in China. The hostel helped to arrange train station pickup and drop off, which was very convenient. The staff also spoke very good English.
