The staff didn't know english, and the one who did wasn't very nice or helpful! The bar/restaurant who they said is working, doesn't exist! It was clean, thats a big plus!
Cutest kitten and puppy ever, at one point they both fell asleep on my lap. Hostel is clean and tidy, round the corner from snack street, definitely worth visiting. Really helpful staff, spoke great English.
The staff were great and helped us enormously with how to get to the places we wanted. Bedrooms clean and warm.
A nice and friendly place to stay in Luoyang, close to the night food market which is handy. Also, they have cute young dogs and a friendly cat which is a plus.
Nice hostel in an easy access area. The staff were helpful. The bed was comfy. There were three adorable puppies running about the common area / bar (and a kitten if you are a cat person), they were great for a little cuddle! The only downside is that the wifi was patchy.
The only probelm is no wifi in the room!! And you must try the drink 'One Night in Xi'an' which is awsome!!

good loocation, nice rooms en chill room
The hostel is right in the city, easy to get to anywhere. Easy to find as well. The staff is also good. But not many tour they offer from the hostel to be available. Especially the Long tan Temple. It will be better if the tour operates everyday at least with minimum group of people.
The bathroom in female dorm is dirty, seemed very long not being cleaned up. I rather took shower at the shared shower room. The upper bed is supposed to have better safety barrier, as it is quite high to ceiling. Better to have much information about how to get around to tourist attraction. Many tour packages showed in the wall, but almost all not available. Would be better if there is, as some of guests may only have limited time to stay at Luoyang.
Great hostel at a good price. Nice staff. Good location on the main road next to the night market.
The hostel is quite nice, on Saturday evening they show a movie in the common room and the location is nice. There is a market with food and accessories. However, rooms for two have a bathroom out of glass, so you should not expect too much privacy.
When we checked in we got a room, but there were still the old bed stuff & towels lying there and the room was still dirty from the previous guests. Hostel offers a good menu for food, but everytime I ordered something was not possible. Either they didn't have the right stuff in the hostel or the cook/chef was just not available. The staff didn't appear very motivated but rather sitting bored in the hostel. Service fees for train tickets are quite high (30p.p.). Atmosphere was nice there anyway.
Great location right by the food street. Helpful staff and easy to get to the various attractions around town. Great place!
Excellent location in the centre of town right next to the night market. The common area is nice and they serve lots of food. The bathroom in the four person dorms is a hilarious set up - basically a glass box with a curtain around it, but I had no problems there. Beds felt a tiny bit unstable on the top bunk as well, but overall a good place to spend a few nights. Wifi is only in common areas.
The food offered in the hostel was not that good and also only a few dishes were offered. The staff is friendly and helps you booking tickets. But they send a repair man to our room for the air-condition and it took him 3 hours to repair it. During that time we had to sit in the room and wait until he finished his work. A little bit annoying .
Excellent hostel and love Luoyang! The only bad thing is that the computers are not free... and maybe change the moulded shower curtains...and get more toilets.
