4 bed dorms were basic but clean and warm. The shared bathrooms were always being cleaned and the showers were hot. The bar/common room was a nice communal space and the food served was good, if a little expensive for china. The wifi worked in the bar/lobby, but poorly and nowhere else, which was the worst standard throughout our 2 months in china. The location of the hostel was good, 6 stops on the metro from the bund. The terms of the tours were badly explained/advertised.

We booked a four bed dorm with ensuite, the room and beds were clean, however the bathroom was the worst we experienced in China. Only a squat toilet with a shower over and the smell was unbearable. The shared bathrooms were better and would have been ok to use if staying in a dorm with no ensuite. The common room/bar was nice and the food was good, tasty and value for money. The wifi worked in the bar and lobby. The metro was easily accessible and good links to big cities on the train.

Chongqing Greenforest Hostel

Chongqing, China

We stayed in both a double room with ensuite and a 6 bed dorm during our stay. Both rooms were clean and warm and of a good standard, however the double had more facilities like a tv and the ensuite was large and had towels, soaps etc. Negatively, the bathrooms were a long walk away from the dorms which would have been bad on a long stay. The staff were helpful but not all spoke english. The wifi was ok in room, good in common room/lobby and dorms. The location was close to metro and shopping

Sorry for the shared bathroom, as we have few dorms. We put only one side of our hostel. The staff try to learn more English. We will give a training for their English. Anyway, have a nice trip Kind Regards Angelina

The four bed dorm with ensuite was clean and warm, best duvets in China and even an electric blanket! The shower was always hot too. The staff were helpful and most of them spoke good english, they helped us organise tours and do our washing. The wifi worked well in common room and ok in our room. The food was tasty and great value for money. The tours were also well planned and good value, except for the Leshan Buddah- worth seeing but do yourself! The metro was just over the road

Han Tang Inn Hostel

This was the best hostel we stayed in in China. 6 bed dorms with an ensuite were clean and comfortable, the showers were hot. Room could have been warmer but it snowed during our visit. The staff were helpful and spoke good english, organised tours for us, did our washing, provided us with a plug adapter, memory card reader, hairdryer and other extras. The dumpling/drinking parties were fun and the food served was of a good standard. The location was great, reach the city in 5mins on foot.

Dorms were as shown, they were warm and clean with a tv and kettle but very basic. The hostel was in a good location, easily accessible metro, however the staff did not speak any english. The tours were overpriced, we advise to book independently. The wifi mostly worked in our room. The bathrooms only had squat toilets as the western ones did not work. The showers were either freezing or scalding. There was a lot of noise at night but this may have been because of chinese new year.
