I had a great stay at Mr.Panda. The staff is very nice and very helpful. The common area is great. Just mind, when I left, they just got some kittens, so unfortunately it is not a good place for people with allergies anymore.
It is generally a nice place and the staff is (in the Chinese way) really helpful with booking tours and trains. I stayed in the dorm above Cozy bar, which was quite loud in the evening and also in the morning when a musician decided to practice with the amp on... the main building looked nicer and more quite tho.
This is the cleanest hostel I ever stayed in! And the staff is really friendly and helpful.The tours they offer seem a good deal, but it is a lot of driving. If you do you research you can do it by yourself and a few flights instead of three days on dirt roads. All has its charm tho...
I had a good stay. The staff was very nice and the room was okay. However the shared bathroom situation was not great. No seat on the toilette? Really?!?
This is definitively a party hostel! Which includes all day and night loud music in the lobby and therefore in some rooms as well. If you come to party go there! If you come to relax, rather don't. It is a very clean hostel and the value with all meals included is unbeatable. To me the general atmosphere was rather medium. I guess everyone was hung over during the day and only after 8pm the party and more social atmosphere started picking up. Overall, excellent for party, medium to bad to relax.
I really enjoyed my stay at Duo Housing! Most welcoming stuff and really nice common area and kitchen. "Welcome home!"
