Great hostel, though as an American I found the sister hostel (Han Tang Inn, a few meters down the road) more hospitable, with (much) better food and thankfully no smoking in the bar/restaurant. The restaurant/bar area really is classy looking (if you don't mind the smoking), and the staff was quite attentive. Their tours -- identical between the three sister hostels -- are good and a good value.
Perfect hostel experience -- one of the two best hostels I've enjoyed in China. Lobby area feels like a nice pub; the western food is genuine; the staff are relaxed. The room was small but classy.
Great rooms - we had a private double ensuite, hotel-quality. Easy walk to get downtown. Hostel-arranged tours very good. Front desk staff not very professional though, as if all were trainees. Didn't know how to work their own lockers, gave wrong starting times for all tours, & almost made us miss our train because the shuttle they arranged didn't come. Still, I recommend the place.
Basic but cheerful hostel. By "poor security" I don't mean personal safety -- it's just that there's no real practical way to keep valuables safe when you go for day trips, since there's no locks on the room doors. The crowd passing through was a fun, laid-back mix of westerners and mainlanders. The hostel arranged a busy full-day tour to most of the local sights, which was worth the price (85 RMB) for simplifying the transportation. Entries to all the sites weren't too bad.
