Beautiful, spacious room, hallways and decor are like a proper hotel, but common areas have nice hostel feel - warm, friendly, lots of interesting people. Great courtyard for chilling. Our daughter had fun exploring and playing. Staff were helpful with arranging tours, despite our last minute requests. Food was good, if not a bit slow to arrive. Only downside is location - across the highway from the old town. Not terribly far from the old town, but also not right in the thick of things.

Location is great - in the middle of the old town, and in a nice, relatively quiet part, as opposed to the crowded noisy areas. One small downside is that it's hard to get to especially with lots of luggage, although they provide pickup. Cute rooms, appreciated the towels, comfortable beds. Cute courtyards. Only unpleasant part of stay was battling with mosquitoes at night. Mama Naxi and her staff are warm and very helpful. They spent time to come up with an affordable tour to meet our needs.

One of the hostel's 2 toilets was having issues (not flushing, and was a "squat" toilet besides) and eventually an "out of order" sign was put up. Definitely inconvenient having only one toilet for everyone at the hostel. Other than that, the staff were courteous, the hostel was nicely decorated and clean, and the terrace is beautiful.

Beautifully decorated, very new, neat and clean, hard to believe it is a youth hostel. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. The neighborhood where it is located is clearly "posh" - it is located in a gated community, very quiet and secure. Easily accessible by bus along Huandaonanlu 环岛南路 but a bit far from the center of town (a 20 minute busride?) and a 5-10 minute walk from the bus stop. Highly recommended, with only downside being distance from the city center and restaurants.
