I didn't think the staff in the hostel were altogether too friendly, there was no restaurant and no washing facilities. Also our room was quite small and staff kept turning our air conditioning off too. According to signs within the building the hostel is illegal. It's in a residential building and the signs say that the police could come at any time and shut it all down!

I liked this hostel but I preferred Mingtown etour in Shanghai. Although the staff were helpful I didn't find them the friendliest of people. The location was good, just a few minutes walk to the metro station and 5-10 minutes to the Bund.

I enjoyed my stay at this hostel and it was the second time that I'd been there. I had one slight problem when the hostel thought that I had checked out instead of someone else in my dorm room and they removed my clothes from the room! I got them back the next day though so everything was fine.

This hotel is very close to the park so it didn't take us long to walk there in the morning. The staff were friendly and helped us with everything we needed.

Monkey Jane's Guesthouse, Yangshuo, China

This place is for people looking for a party and who don't care about the state of the hostel. Our room was cramped, the bathroom was dirty and the beds were falling apart. Jane is not always friendly and seems to change her mind about room fees depending on her mood. The location of the hostel is great and the bar is a lot of fun. I wouldn't stay here again but I would definitely revisit the bar!

They tried to raise the price of the room after we had booked it and before we arrived which we fought. The staff, whilst trying to be helpful, spoke very little English so it was difficult to communicate with them. The location was not as central as we had first thought it was and they didn't provide food. It does offer a laundry facility, but someone moved my clothes so they didn't dry, then the hostel tried to charge me 25 RMB to rent a towel. Perhaps this place would be better for families.

The most memorable thing about this hostel is the food, the breakfast was excellent!. The rooms were fairly standard, but despite it being really warm in Dali the inside of the hostel was rather cold

The hostel was good and not as noisy as I was expecting. The toilets could have been nicer, there wasn't much room in the cubicles! The food at the bar was good and it had a great atmosphere

I had some problems with the wifi here. The reception staff were very friendly. There is a bar downstairs when the hostel bar closes which is fun. I'd definitely stay here again

I stay at this hostel regularly and love it. The staff are really friendly, as are all of the guests. The rooms are comfortable and the food and drinks are reasonably priced

There wasn't a mirror in the dorm which I would have liked but apart from that everything was fine with the stay. The hostel was easy to find, the staff were friendly and all of the other facilities were great.

The hostel was nice, the food wasn't great though. It was very quiet, a little too quiet for my taste, not even any music on in the background. The room was nice though, very clean and the staff were very friendly. I would stay here again

I had a great visit to this hostel, the staff were very friendly and when my friend had a problem with checking in they were very patient and helpful. The food was nice here too, and for your first visit they give you a voucher for a free beer or coffee!

I had a great stay at the hostel, I had no problems whatsoever. The staff were friendly and gave me directions for places to eat and visit and wrote things down for me in pinyin and in Chinese characters to help me find my way. I would definitely go back and stay here.
