I can't say I was overly impressed with my stay at the Cosy Garden. While the hostel was quite nice, it was quite a way out from the town. The staff would often ignore you and they weren't particularly friendly or helpful when they did speak to me. I would suggest going down the road to their sister hostel Carpe Diem. Most things were cheaper there and the staff were much nicer. Be aware that they offer pick up on the "directions" page and then charge you for it when you arrive.
I love love loved my stay here at Wada! The staff were amazing and knew me by name after only a few hours of being there. They are nicely located near the train station and it is super easy to get around the city with the wonderful help of the staff. They even have lockers that I could leave my huge backpack in while I went on overnight trips around the area. I loved the whole vibe here, but it is DEFINATELY the staff that make this place so awesome! Best hostel I've stayed in while in China.
I enjoyed my time here and would happily stay here again. I was lucky enough to stay here during the Naxi Torch Festival and got to join the staff as they participated and took us around the town. The food was also delicious and the atmosphere was serene and lovely. Definintely recommend this one!
This hostel was very nice and beautifully located with a great view (though very hard to find in the dark, bring a torch!!). The staff were nice and helpful and the rooms were pleasant. However I'd probably avoid the food here, I ate eggs here and ended up sick for 10 days with a parasitic food poisoning.
Super unhappy with my stay here. The rooms are loud and very very bright all night. I found some of the staff to be dishonest and extremely unhelpful. Worst of all I accidently left a jacket in my locker when I checked out, I rang an hour later at the girl on the desk said they had found it and would keep it for me, but when I rang back a few hours later to organise picking it up they claimed it was not there and had not been found. I thoroughly regret having ever stayed here.
I was initially booked into a dorm room here but ended up switching to a twin, but I will base my review on the dorm. The staff here were lovely and the location was great but that is where it end. The dorm here is blatantly a linen closet that has had a bunk bed put into it, and to access the bathroom I had to walk down two flights of stairs and go through the restaurant and kitchen to access it, which is shared with the guests dining in and the kitchen staff. Don't book the dorm room.
I was very pleased with my stay at Flip Flop, I would definitely recommend staying here! Everything was clean, the staff were very helpful, and the facilities were excellent. I would stay here again for sure!
I really enjoyed my stay at Han Tang Inn. The staff were super helpful and spoke excellent English. The location is perfect and really close to all the main forms of transport. My only issue was the bathroom shower in our dorm took forever to drain and the wifi connection could be a bit iffy. But on the whole I thoroughly recommend staying here! Great value for money.
My stay at Luoyang was pleasant. The owner is very nice and the room was exceptionally clean, as was the bathroom. Location wasn't great but I was given plenty of help with how to get around. I struggled a bit with seeing the value for money part as the power was out for the better part of a night and day during my stay (no ac, no wifi, no hot water etc.）but that can't be helped I guess. The owner was nice enough to upgrade from a dorm bed to a private double room, which was nice.
Quite happy with our stay at Le Tour Traveler's Rest. We were in a private twin room, it was comfortable and clean. It was an internal room, but still had a window to let light in. The staff were few, but all plesant enough. The location was the best thing, just a short taxi ride from most places of interest and most driver's knew where it was. Good shower with hot water available every time it was needed. WIFI was available in the reception area, but not in the room. Overall, very happy.
I was pretty happy here at Hutcha Resort. The staff were really nice and very helpful. We only stayed overnight on our way to the airport but was just what we needed. My only concern would be that the basic twin room is advertised as having air conditioning but our room only had a basic fan.
I-bed had great facilities and was great value for money. It was nice and clean and the staff were quite helpful, though their English seemed to be limited which made booking taxis and tours a little difficult since I speak little to no Thai.
Penzy's guesthouse is great. Its a good locaiton, very close to the beach and the main street of Chaweng but still manages to not be noisy at night. Penzy is absolutely lovely and VERY helpful! I would thoroughly recommend staying here and would stay here again myself in a heartbeat.
