1) crazily poor facilities. The shower room is too tiny to turn your body around and face cleaning desk is so micro that filthy water gets everywhere. Even the bed is too short for me as 1.85m length. 2) wonderful location and staff services.

The hostel is located in Fremont which is just miles away from downtown (15 mins by bus). Extraordinarily good facilities with wonderful breakfast and staff. I'd come again!!

I love living here. Clean facilities with extremely nice staff. The room has a large space for putting luggages and so do the lockers. The hostel is located perfectly next to yizhong district and has infinite good snacks and interesting places. I will definitely come here again when arriving Taichung.

1) Quite poor facilities: extremely small locker, only 2 restrooms (along with the shower) for over 10 guests, old and unreliable equipment, sound-amplifying doors... 2) Staff is very nice and willing to help. However I really do not have any mood for social activities since the facilities could not provide a comfortable sleep. 3) A bit of hard to find according to its description.

The staff here especially Brishen is extraordinary friendly and helpful. Besides the lovely girl provides best recommendation for eating around. Other than this, this hostel is perfect considering atmosphere, infrastructure, cleanliness and location. I'm a fast walker so it takes only 30 seconds to go metro station. I will definitely visit here again and I even invited them to Shanghai:)

The road to metro line station is kinda harsh especially when the weather gets humid. The room is ok with specialized furniture to show local culture. But in some parts of the hostel, it was not so clean. Moreover, it gets very chilly at night since almost all the windows in public areas are open all night along. But I guess I'd still choose here due to good atmosphere and wonderful location.

quite a nice choice if you need hang out in Hongqiao area. It is also approachable from any other places by metro line 2. Clean and good room facilities. Only unsatisfying part is the narrow public area, which has very limited possibilities to know friends.

Perfect location with a five-minute walk to hottest metro line through almost all city sights. Well-decorated room with extremely humanized facilities which I can regard as a above-3-star hotel. The staff is really helpful in terms of flexibility and hospitality. However the atmosphere is not so good considering a very limited public area without nice drinks or musics.

Nicely decorated hostel with a beautiful public area. The staff is warm-hearted and funny. But the translation of notices inside the room needs some improvement, cuz Chinglish is really hard to understand for foreigners. I think i may come here again for next tour. The location is quite normal and it takes several bus stops to those sights, however, a metro station is being constructed and i guess this will help for sure.

Normal family-style hostel with only 2 toilets. The public area really needs some improvement. The atmosphere is not so good, maybe it's because the boss guy weren't here these days. However, they really wanna make everything better and I believe in that.

It is located in central location of HCMC by which I can easily find infinite tour bus companies, convenient shops, nice restaurants and even laundry shops. The hostel is in an ally so that I truly enjoyed the quiet sleep during the whole night. The staff is very helpful with a lovely girl as a receptionist. I'm quite satisfied about the place and I will definitely visit again.

Mui Ne Hills Budget Hotel, Mui Ne, Vietnam

22nd Jun 2015

It is actually two of Mu Nei hills owned by same boss. So the best privilege is that living in this budget one can also enjoy facilities in hotels like a swimming pool and wonderful restaurant (with a 50% discount for living guests). The neighborhood is just ok, several minutes walk to the beach. But facilities really need improvement: only one bathroom in a 6-people room and it will be very crowded sometimes...But this might be a normal defect in all hostels of Vietnam.....

1. The location is so perfect, 5-min walk to central lake and 1-min walk to Hanoi Cathedral. 2. It is supremely quiet inside the room, which is a great privilege since motorbikes in Hanoi are flowing all the time. 3. Atmosphere is not so good, I can barely find public areas with backpackers but only a restaurant with mostly none in it. I think I will visit it again next time I come to the city.

The hostel is perfectly located in a old town right next to Tianhe and Yuexiu. By taking metro 5/1, most of attractions can be reached in 30 minutes conveniently. But the atmosphere, frankly speaking, is quite simple, based on the fact that no good alcohol or music can be found. The worst part is the environment: The river behind the hostel smells super bad and I don't really know it's temporary or permanent symptom.

Just 5-minute walk to metro circle line, by which you can go anywhere in 30 mins. However the neighborhood is a little bit poor, with barely food stores or convenient shops. The staff is nice and funny. The best part is the public area, providing food of different countries and fast Internet connection. Besides, the atmosphere is good. It is never hard to see people talking and making friends here.

The hostel is very popular itself and there are a lot of international guests living here. But the best public area for making friends is a cafe that u need to pay for. As a result of that, the atmosphere of talking is just so so. The staff is good and she speaks very fluent English.

Actually, we would like to make an atmosphere for our guests to making friends and talking happily. Thanks for your comments! In our hostel. So, we hope your next time arrival will be happier.

Perfect location and transportation, considerate staff with poor English, good facilities inside and outside the room. I like the air conditioner in the room, which makes the room very comfortable and fresh. However, the hostel doesn't provide any platform to let guests know each other and climb the mountain together, which becomes a pity especially for solo traveler.

The hostel is well located in old centers of Shenzhen. It's only 5-minute walk to metro stations by which you can easily take metros to other centers and borders without interchange. The thing is, there are 5 beds in my room and 3 of them are too short. I don't think anyone more than 1.78m can sleep on those 3 beds and it made me suffering for the whole night! The service was ok, and the decoration is very good. The most unsatisfying thing is that nowadays the hostel provide different prices for

Deciding to live in this hotel might be the worst idea in the journey. The hotel seems no advantages at all. 1. Old Equipment. Extremely old and inconvenient, for example, the light in my floor always works ineffectively and Bathrooms are really hard to find, taps of hot and cold water are even separate so you would accidently hurt by that. 2. No privacy. Mirrors in our room are unreasonably located, by which, you can even WATCH what your upper neighbor’s doing. 3. Luxury breakfast. Beware that
