Clean but saw and killed at least 6 cockroaches during my stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful, but despite the place being a) huge and b) fully booked, there was never ANYONE in the common area so the atmosphere was non-existent. Great location, though.

The staff here are awesome. I had an odd situation occur on my first night but the staff were very accommodating and gave me a different room upon request. And then continued to make sure all was okay. Atmosphere was non-existent but that's because there were barely any guests, location excellent.

No complaints! Great staff. On the first night our dorm froze it was that cold, but upon telling the staff they arranged a wood-burner to be installed the same day and everything was great!

Possibly the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Really friendly staff, great set-up, and a great social atmosphere with all guests mingling/talking. Plus free pubcrawls almost every night and a good meal deal! Awesome place.

Can't fault this place. Great location, really clean, really nice staff. It's off-season so not many guests but those staying all made an effort to talk so the atmosphere was fine. No complaints!

Excellent location and staff, security non-existent (no lockers and wide open dorm room) BUT everyone says this and the hostel is in a safe area and has seemingly never had any problems so fair enough. Atmosphere was lacking but it is off-season in tourism terms so this is to be expected. Would recommend to anyone.

Totally fine hostel, a little hard to find but close to Zhongshan Park and a few tube stops. Bar is really nice, though not the most social - mainly people on laptops, but that's China hostels for you really. Staff were great, very clean, would visit again.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in, really cool and friendly reception and bar staff. Easy to reach the centre on foot in 10-15mins, very welcoming place and it looks great too. Right in the middle of Metelkova, if you wanna party.

Was a last-minute booking so wasn't expecting much....very clean, safe and with a decent location but completely lacking in atmosphere. Common area is too quiet and nobody there, so hard to meet other travellers. Staff very friendly though.

If you're a solo backpacker, avoid. Basically, a sprawling hotel with hundreds of guests, 99% of which seem to be organised groups of overseas students.No common area, you will not meet ANYONE here. Very clean and comfortable beds,but WIFI doesnt work at all (had to pay across the road to use internet, daily)&most things usually offered for free, you pay for here. Staff-friendly,but due to the sheer number of guests, always rushed off their feet.

Good location, clean but a little basic....though this is the look they are aiming for. Staff were friendly, only downside was a lack of atmosphere in the common area but we did realise it'd be a more chilled out hostel when we booked.

Would recomend, really good location and decent value for money. Only downside was a lack of atmosphere in the common area, but I suspect this is because most guests seemed to be 'live-in' guests, perhaps working or studying in Riga. Staff were a little absent at times, but helpful when needed.

Funny enough if you read the previous review (also with not a very high rating) you will realize that there is social atmosphere and party going on but as always it's a bit hard to maintain it in the low season. In the low season our maximum stay is 2 weeks. If people work or study in Riga, we try to help them get their own apartments and send them on their way.

Shuhe Doumi Hostel, Lijiang, China

1st May 2013

First off, it takes forever to find the place and when you arrive, it appears they are still renovating the place. It's also located in a dodgy, dimly lit series of back alleys that you wouldn't want to navigate after say, 11pm. Basic as anything, but they recognise this and allow you to bring in food/drink from outside. Dog going berzerk all day/night, probably coz its a big boy and spends 90% of the time chained up. When fully functional, Doumi maybe okay.

We arrived at night and it took us 2.5hrs of walking up and down to find the place, intructions on how to get there are poor and despite being set several alleys off the main path, no signposts either. Staff very friendly and helpful though, but fairly basic.

22nd Apr 2013

If you must go to Zhangjiajie, this is your best option, but dont expect much. Cleanliness is great, and the dorms are great too, but there us zero atmosphere - literally, it feels like you're staying in an abandoned building, staff are pretty much invisible. No safes/lockers. Decent and cheap, but you'll feel a bit alienated here.

Hostel staff were great, very helpful and the place is clean and well-located....couple of complaints, though - 1) We were told we'd get a train station pickup, this never turned up and we had to get a taxi 2) While the dorms were very cheap and good value, the bar prices were ridiculous. I understand a pint of imported weissebier costing a fortune. What I dont understand, is how they can charge £2 for a small bottle of local water, that costs 10p in the supermarket 10yrds away.

Location good,place itself was almost like a stately home,decent. However,although the female staff member is friendly and helpful-AVOID the oddball guy in the glasses at all cost.The guy is rude,ignorant,seems to hate social interaction and offers no help.He thought an acceptable way of waking me up was to stand over me as I slept and bark words at me til I woke up.He's lucky he didn't get smacked in the jaw,it was an unpleasant surprise to say the least!
