A nice hostel, pretty well placed, easy to get around town, easy to get bus to Longmen grotto. Seems like the hostel offer some good tours; we weren't staying long, so didn't do any. Nice hot shower!
What I loved the most about this hostel is a comfortable room. A neighborhood traditional market, night market is good.
WORST HOSTEL EXPERIENCE EVER! The bar/reception area is nice, other than that the rooms are horrible (noisy and damp smell). I cant really complain about the hostel since it was $4 a night for a private en-suite room (you get what you pay for) but the staff were absolutely appalling. Their English speaking is minimal to none, the tours they arrange have no English either, their attitude was terrible and level of service even worse. Only go if you absolutely have no other choice.
Everyone is always looking for something different when they stay at a hostel but i would strongly advice people to stay here cause the owner is really great.
A good place to stay for a few days. Not much to do at the hostel but the atmosphere was very nice at a lot of cosy places to hang out. The staff was friendly but did not speak that goo English but enough to understand directions! The location was good and it to find. From the hostel you had easy access to the attractions in the area which is perfect when you only got a few day! Overall a good stay.
Great hostel to stay in. The organized tours were very disappointing though. I was told I'd be going with a tour group to Shaolin temple. The group that picked me up was an all chinese speaking group and I was left to explore alone and just join for the van rides. The tour they made me join also went to white horse temple and longmen grottoes, so I had to pay extra to join for the temple and since I went to longmen already, I was told I could just bus home. Not as advertised, very displeased!
The location of this hostel is perfect. Very close to the ''old street'', staff is very helpful with any matters, rooms are in good shape. All in all a good stay.
