Amazing hostel! Stayed in the loft - a steep lift-less climb, but such an spacious and comfy area! Great atmosphere and staff, loved the organized tours and the social vibe.

Seriously one of the best hostels I've stayed in - great traveller's vibe, comfy spacious dorms (loved the appartment setup!), and the girls at the reception were super-friendly and helpful! Will definately recommend it to anyone!!

Can totally recommend this hostel - it's huge, as was the female dorm I booked - couldn't believe it even had a roof terrace! All facilities were very modern and the reception staff super friendly and helpful. I felt it's not the most social place as there's no common area except the cafe, but if you're set for your stay in Prague, it's good! Will definately stay again.

Atmosphere bit more like a hotel than like a hostel - missed a bit communal areas where to meet other travellers: there's only the open rooftop bar, which was mainly empty (since it was rainy& cold, people were either in their rooms or out - no living room in hostel). Other than that, nice clean rooms, good bathroom, good location

Nice place to hang out - a little bit out of the way (it's over 30 mins walk to Yangshuo, and not in a super nice / interesting location either), but it's walkeable and they give you bikes free after 6pm - good to communte at night. Guess in summer this place is awesome, was a bit on the quiet side now

Awesome place to stay - the rooftop terrace overlooking the mosque is phenomenal. The rooms are good too - my only complaint are the poor bathroom facilities. No connected sink to wash your hands - WTF. Also, more than once found the toilets in a disgusting state. Some people might like the tiny kitchen, but since food is so plenty & cheap in Kashgar, why not use it as bathroom space?!?!?

Fantastic friendly place with a lovely owner! Hostel is an appartment in one of those sovjet-style housing blocks; feels more like a small appartment home than a hostel, and everything is spotlessly clean. Easy to chat to people and get tours started - would definately recommend that place!

The place is a good base to meet other travellers for tours and is conveniently located. BUT very unpleasant stay: I booked for a week and wanted to cancel 4 days right upon check-in - but they demanded full payment for the week, and got incredibly rude when I attempted to discuss it (after all they resold my bed and made double money!!) Rude staff, only 1 working shower, crazy loud from 7am onwards (staff runs into rooms 7.30am and makes beds loudly chatting while everyone is still sleeping)

Excellent base to explore Beijing, can't praise staff enough - you guys rock! (and help everyone out soooo much). They have a very fun bar, good to catch up with other travellers. Only point of complaint: said bar is super loud, so if you are on ground level and want to have an early night... tough luck.

They don't exaggerate, this entire hostel feels like a home away from home!! The living room is super-cozy, the entire hostel smallish for a really good atmosphere with your fellow travellers, and it has Russ, best ever St Paddy's day organisator and pancake man in the morning to start you for the day. Thanks for the good times :)

Facilitywise and overall a great hostel. Although very disorganized, had to change my bed 5x because of misbookings. Not cool to get home from drinking at 12am and find your stuff in a bin-bag by the reception. Twice. Staff was great & friendly - except that lady working during the day, who was disgracefully rude to everyone (staff as well as clients).

Man, I hated this place. Pumping loud music all day and nowhere to retreat, very poor common area (you can only hang out in the lobby which is as loud as a club), nothing in kitchen (not even cups & plates) Awesome friendly staff tho, and good to meet people. Guess it depends if you are after nonstop clubbing, or want a chill place

Very social place & great to meet people, funky hostel - bit messy & rundown tho. The toilets are annoying: only 2 in the building and usually occupied as they double as showers, so you have to march across the courtyard to 2 outdoor unisex ones.

Loud, fun and central, always some action in the bar downstairs. Good place to meet people. Found the common area a bit small/ uncomfortable (aka, not very comfy to hang out as alternative to the over-crowded bar) Quite noisy - great if you are out for party, not so great if you are after sth more quiet
