Nice hostel in general. Communal area is good and staff helpful. Wifi was pretty slow. The dorm room we were in stunk of damp and there was a thick layer of dust everywhere in and around the bunk, did not enjoy breathing it in. Even the sheets felt damp and my clothes that I had out.

Hi, Thanks for staying at our hostel. The room you stayed is the best dorm in our hostel. You could tell us to change room if you did not like it after your check-in, and our staff would like to arrange another room for you. You know, in winter, Chongqing have a lot of rains almost every day. Sometimes it is a little wet in the room, but we provide electronic blanket in every bed. Also the air-con is available in winter if you ask the reception. Wish you have a nice trip in China. Best Regards

Hostel is fine located. Maybe a bigger sign on the outside will help finding the place. Free coffee was very friendly by arrival.

Very nice backpacker hostel. We had a double room with bathroom and it was nice and clean and comfortable. Hallways were really well done and kept clean as well. Common area was inviting and staff were accommodating. Good location but TONS of stairs getting there and into the city center.

Hi, We are so happy that you like the hostel here, and have a really good time. You know, in Chongqing, there is a lot of stairs everywhere because of the Mountain City, But it is good for the health if you practice going up and down the stairs every day. It is a different experience that you will never see in other cities. Wish you have a nice trip in China. Best Regards Yangzteriver Team

Hi, Thank for choosing and staying at Yangtzeriver Youth Hostel. We are near the road by the riverside, it is a little noisy sometimes. But for most of the day, it is Ok. Wish you have a nice trip in China. Best Regards Yangtzeriver Team

We definitely enjoyed our stay. Directions, from the subway, need to be more clear - we had difficulty finding the hostel. Also had trouble getting a taxi back to the hostel. Our river cruise was good though we got a different view of what first class is - choose a local as opposed to foreign tour company. Interesting experience, glad we went as we met great people and learned lots; cruise boat was very tired but would have been a beauty in its day.

View from the window is good, specially if looking at the river. If stepping on the street it is totally sad and dirty neighbourhood. Fortunatley, the hostel itself is cosy and cute and staff was very friendly and helpful in any way.

The rooms are a bit small for big pieces of baggages. Might be a good idea to install fly screens against the mosquitos. Beside that the hostel offers a big common area with free pool. They also serve some food. Unfortunately, sometimes it feels a bit hard to get precise answers from the staff! But they try everything to satisfy you.

Should they remove their AC to somewhere else would be much better. I believe no one wants to put their head under the AC or put their head at the other one's foot.

Good hostel, everything we needed. Staff were very helpful and being able to purchase a meal was good as there is not much on offer nearby.

Great atmosphere, the lounge is an easy place to meet other people, the staff is fantastic, always very happy to help, the food also is good and very well priced (especially compared to most of the other hostels I stayed in China), the dorm room was a bit small but apart from that everything else was great! (the hostel is on the big road next to the river right under the orange bridge, taxis might drop you off a little bit further up)

Slightly out of the way. The Hostel needs a clearer sign out the front as it is nearly impossible to see from the road. Taxi driver had no idea. If you are going on a Yangtze Gold cruise it is brilliant as we only had to walk across the road. Staff were were great and a special mention to Angelina and Junior Ma who were especially helpful and friendly. We had a candle lit dinner outside in the smoking area(lucky no smokers were there) with a view of the Yangtze and all the lights. Very pleasant.

Make sure you get the 503 bus in the right direction. Because the bus is going in two directions from the train and bus station.

Stay here! In the cramped dorm rooms was a lot of dust and mould on the walls, we suggest they fix this. Travellers, have a look before agreeing. Atmosphere was relaxed, the helpfull staff spoke above average English so we could change rooms, no problem. Book a cruise with them, we didn't and ended up in a passenger boat 6-bed f.u.b.a.r.-cabin. Finding it on foot was a hassle, it's riverside but at the base of the pillar supporting the bridge (winding footpath down sneaker knock-off market)

Sorry for the room, We have already ask workers try to fix it. They just arrange it. For the direction, when we send the confirmation email, we write a new route. We try to tell the guest easiest way come to our hostel. Still wish you nice trip in following days. Kind Regards, Angelina

I was staying there for three nights last week.The faclities in the toilet and shower is good and new.BUT the hostel has no “Spirit Of Treaty“They charged me more and give no reason.I paid for the hostelworld booking fee so when I arrive there I should just need to pay RMB105.6Yuan.But eventually I was asked to pay RMB106Yuan wth no reason..I know it really small money but money is money and it writen on my reservation.It's a contract!!

The hostel was great in terms of cleanliness, free printing, excellent travel adivce and food as well as reat communal areas and bathroom facilities. However, the bed was a bit hard and the air conditioning was only on from 9pm until 9 the next morning which made the rooms fairly unbearable at any other time of day..

Hi, thanks for staying at our hostel. We are very happy that you enjoy your stay here.The limitation of opening the air-con is just for the dorm room, but for the private room, you could open it anytime you want. Wish you have a nice trip all over China. Best Regards Henry
