Really nice hostel, modern and well-furnished. Large communal area with bar and good food. Very friendly and helpful staff and a great atmosphere all round. Kept nice and warm in winter! Good value tours, especially the cormorant fishing. A day out riding the bikes around the countryside is a must.
Nice enough hostel, though nothing exceptional. Pleasant communal area and cafe. The location within the old city is ideal, however...although this is no fault of the hostel itself, when arriving off the sleeper train in the early morning, we found it impossible to find in the dark. At night the old city is very difficult to navigate around, even with the several maps we had. A headtorch is a must. Great, cheap, chinese-style buffet breakfast. The hostel is quite cold in winter.
Very nice, clean hostel. Spacious dorm rooms, comfy beds, large lockers. Friendly staff. Good bar and food menu. Fantastic location within walking distance of Tianamen Square, Forbidden City, the Donghuamen night market, and the subway. Easy to find with the directions provided. Only downside (as with a lot of the chinese hostels I've found) is it's a little cold in winter.
There are some very nice hostels in Brisbane, and I've stayed in many of them, but this is not one of the best. Other hostels provide much better facilities for only a little extra money. It's a bit rundown, the kitchen area is basic and undersized. The communal area is not very well-designed for relaxing. Rooms, beds and toilets are basic. Showers are rubbish. No alcohol allowed, yet no bar either.
