Probably adequate if you speak Chinese. I did speak to an English speaker on the phone apon arrival, who also booked a tour for me so it probably in his interest! No English speaker at the hotel. I asked to have room cleaned (google translate) after 3 days of my 4. Didn't happen. Also wanted cab when I left, waited 30 minutes as I thought he had booked it. G.transl. & a cab picture. Nope. Ended up walking down the road(a pain with lots luggage). Staff seemed very disinterested. Mediocre Hostel.
Freezing cold! No hot water and no staff present that could speak English. Maybe the place is ok in summer as it is basically nicely made, but at this time of the year it is not recommendable!
The room was nice although not very spacious. We weren't happy with the windows along the corridor that couldn't be closed or locked. We'd seen that someone had been picked up from the station but when we asked for the same service, we were told it was only in peak season. Neither of the staff members spoke English and spent most of their time watching loud TV programmes throughout the day. We did get a mysterious phone call the evening we arrived but never heard from that person again.
Great place, the owner can't speak English, only the city is not that exciding. The mattress is not there. -great breakfast option outside bread of the stove -great dinner option from the hostel turn right the restaurant almost at the corner (take beer from the supermarket next door)
Really good location, was a possibility to book tours at the hostel, clean too.
We were picked up by Jack from the station which is 20 mins away. He was most helpful and arranged our cruise to see the amazing 3 Gorge Dam. Good location near to many shops and river. Well recommended.
