Great spot! It was so nice to spread out in our own apartment! Gorgeous courtyard. We didn't partake in festivities but it looked nice. Front desk was helpful. Located quite close to the cathedral and lots of bars and restaurants. Would stay again

Wonderful stay! Staff was very helpful. 4 tours everyday! Very cheap drinks and breakfast as well. The pool wasn't much more than a wading pool but the option was still nice. Would stay again!

We went into it expecting a campground, and that's what we got. The rooms are a little musty but that is to be expected. There was a bar but we didn't check it out- yes the place is full of rowdy Aussies, which is fine. If you can get your own room, fight for it. It's no extra. Would have been happy enough but there was no staff when we tried to check out at 10-11am. The sign said "back at 4". Not acceptable. They also didn't have our reservation when we arrived but managed to squeeze us in.

Friendly staff, a little bit of a walk to town, but decent patio bar and large, clean rooms. Would stay again.

Had a blast! Although be aware that the hostel pub crawls are really "club" crawls. There was always free food (dinner and snacks), and the atmosphere was good for meeting people. Rooms were quiet enough to sleep. Would go back.

The girl at the desk on night shift was very informative and quite nice! The morning staff was rude and sent us to the wrong train station when we asked for a taxi to pick us up. That being said, ensure you work out a price with the driver before getting in, we got charged double on the way to the hostel. Wifi was great throughout the hostel and our room was great value for money! Good times.

Great value, great location, clean and with most of the amenities. 700 beds is a lot, there's nothing personal about this hostel but it has a great bar and a decent breakfast and a good value.

The hostel itself was charming and clean enough, although the breakfast was very basic. The owners are almost non-existent, and we were overbooked and booted out on our second night, despite the reservation. A nice deck upstairs and a nice common area though!

Thank younfor highlighting our charming, clean hostel with our nice deck and common area. We are sorry to hear you were not satisfied with eggs, bread, 4 diff marmelades, 2 diff chocopastas, honey, syrops, cookiepasta, milk, coffee, tea, tapwater and cornflakes for breakfast. Certainly after you only paid 36 euro for two persons in � private twin room. We gave you this free upgrate as we were not sure if you would come after cancelling your booking and not replying anymore. We kept this twin as � backup because we would never ever want people sleeping at the street. Sorry we hardly met you. Thankfull that we had nice chats

The guesthouse was located half way between the train/ bus station and the old town, so a good spot. The room was clean and nice, and they let us check in early, which was nice. The 3rd bed was just a lumpy cot, but we dealt. Miro was hilarious and as helpful as he could be. Thanks, Miro!

I've stayed here a few times and always have a decent time, nice bar. But each time the staff surprises me with how rude and unhelpful they can be. Everything seems to be an inconvenience! The bar staff is better, but the front desk could learn to be friendlier!

The common area wasn't that impressive, but I'm sure the rooftop bar will be fun in warmer months. Right down the st from Babylon if you're going to see a show, and about a 15 min walk from alexanderplatz. Wombat's in Vienna gave you much more of that friendly hostel feel.

Best View in town from the rooftop bar. it's not quite as happenin' as MonkeyJane's, but still a GREAT place to chill and drink cheap beer. The private double was immaculately clean, but the bed cushions in all rooms are about an inch thick. no food to order in the bar.

This hostel is a little farther away from the happening spots in old town, but it was quietly tucked away and relaxing. there is a 'suggested' midnight curfew. the girl at the desk (i think lillian?) was MOST helpful, and helped us with all our travel bookings with patience and a smile. often only one of their computers it working for internet, so don't leave the laptop in kunming. the small kitchen doesnt offer too much, but food options abound in the neighborhood!

the hostel and bar are great, the rooftop area is a nice place to chill. however, at night, the bar/ pool area turns into a locals/ chinese hangout and the place is overrun. the bathrooms are not the best that we've seen in hostels in china, and the laundry situation, while cheap, insists you allow an extra day or two to hang out your clothes yourself. still a fun place in a convenient, easy-to-find spot

The hostel was everything you needed. a little far away from the sights but a 15 minute walk to the subway. i recommend renting a bike to see the sights. the travel desk was helpful, however; DO NOT book your Tibet tour here. wait until you get to Xian or Chengdu. they presure you into making those decisions quick so you use their guides, and the price is not worth it. typical china hostel; cheap beds but you have to drink their beer and eat their food if you are in the common area.

Thank you very much for your good comments, hope to see you next time. Regards Sanlitun hostel

Don't be mislead, this is the downstairs to the owner's Apt. great for a quick one nighter if you're not spending time in the hostel at all, only one b-room for 10 beds and it wasnt clean. no kitchen area or privacy. owner is nice enough but not any of the area info you should expect from a Seoul hostel.

free storage shouldnt consist of a pile of backpacks in the middle of the common room floor. the staff was helpful in trying to book the fuji bus, but unknowledgable in the fact that you can also take the train there if the bus is full (which it was). 3 trains to get to downtown tokyo, but it was a nice quiet neighborhood; dont expect to see any action after midnight.
