I stayed here while attending TCAF events, which were within walking distance of the hostel. It’s also next to Kensington Market and all of the great dining options there. Our private room was clean and secure, though I wasn't a fan of sharing a one-person bathroom with the suite.
The staff at En Attendant Godot was extraordinarily generous and kind -- they really went out of their way to help me and take care of me when I got sick. The room was nice and the hostel was an easy walk away from both town and the Li river.
I only stayed one night on my way to Yangshuo, but it was a good experience. The staff let me know that there was a bus station right across the street with buses to Yangshuo, which saved me a lot of walking.
The food is excellent and I met a lot of great people. I did spot a few bugs though, and I was bitten at night by mosquitoes (could just be the area). My floor and dorm were also very noisy at night because the hostel was pretty crowded. Still, I'd definitely go back for the atmosphere.
I only stayed one night but the staff went above and beyond to accommodate my itinerary. They picked me up from the train station free of charge and saved me a spot on that day's Terracotta Warriors tour, which was amazing (Zhazha rocks). The dorm was really nice and had a private bathroom. The hostel is also in a great location -- within walking distance to the main attractions.
A real hutong experience. Both the staff and the cats were very friendly. I especially liked that the hostel had a small community feeling so that it was easy to meet fellow travelers. Plus the home-cooked pancakes, family dinner, and dumplings were delicious.
I stayed in a four-bed dorm and everything was clean and satisfactory. The room was fairly small and the hostel was a little noisy at night -- mainly because of a security feature on the doors that made a loud noise.
