Han Tang Inn Hostel

Nice hostel. Need to take a shuttle bus from the airport and then another bus but so make sure you print the directions / map. If you can find the hostel ok you will be able to get to the terracotta warriors on the bus yourself too rather than paying for a tour. Bus to terracotta warriors from just ouside train station for 7 yang each way, takes about an hour.

I found it a little difficult to find so make sure you print directions as very few people speak english and will be able to assist. Nice hostel, very helpful staff and loads of restaurants and shops near by.

Nice hostel but make sure you print or now the directions very clearly as it is down a long alley and very few people speak english. Probably 10 min walk from tube station. Near centre of Beijing and Tianamen square etc.

Good location near Shinjuku station but very few other travellers in the hostel. When I was there 95% of other guests were Japanese business men. It is certainly an experience staying in a capsule hotel and I would possibly recommend it for one night to experience it and all the unusual things that go with it. Ie you get issued with prison uniform, I mean pyjamas! Communal baths and showers! And of course sleeping in a capsule. But one night is definately enough, there are other better options.

Thank you for taking time to leave a review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Like you says we are a wee bit further out of town, however it is only a 20 minute walk to the city centre and the buses do run frequently down to town from just around the corner. Ponsonby is great for bars and eateries and we're happy you enjoyed the area. We do hope you will come and visit us again next time you are visiting Auckland! Thanks- The Ponsonby BP Team

Great location, right next to central station, good facilities and clean. Bit more expensive than some of the hostels in Sydney but worth it. Staff were a bit miserable on checkin but think they were just having an off day.

They couldn't find.the key to my room so another guest and I didn't get a key to the room so the room had to be left unlocked all the time. No lockers, grubby room, grubby toilet. Cheap but not that cheerful.

Recently renovated throughout. This is probably the best hostel I have stayed in in Austrailia. Great location just opposite the flinders station, walking distance to MCG and near all the shops. Staff were really nice, rooms were great and very good bathrooms. Big movie room and huge kitchen.

Fantastic location for Coogee beach, literally just across the road and also near all the bars, shops and restaurants. My room didn't have any lockers and I think only a couple of plug sockets. Bathroom was tiny and always soaking and was completely insufficient for the number of people trying to use it. On checkin they advised you that they would take an additional 3 dollars from your room key deposit for cleaning the bed sheets. Surely this is standard and should be included in advertised pri

Location is good, opposite nice park and ten minutes from central train station. The building itself could do with a good clean, everything just looks old, worn and a bit grubby. Staff were ok. Wifi was poor and only available near reception. Although it was pretty cheap, when I returned back to Sydney for a few more days I stayed somewhere else (Railway Square YHA) and although more expensive I thought it was much better value.

Great location for Waterfront but this hostel needs a lot of updating/maintenance to match other near by hostels. Admittedly it is very cheap but you get what you pay for. Atlantic Point is just round the corner and is much better value.

Five minutes walk from main square. Really friendly staff, very good breakfast. Nice clean hostel. Pretty tricky to find. When the taxi drops you off kids will offer to take you to the hostel but they will want paying and probably try to rip you off.
