Good hostel, BUT beware of bedbugs!!!
The location is great, and the staff is very friendly. Their home drawn maps would benefit from some improvements though... The single rooms are small and a bit stuffy and do not have any safety boxes, but the price is good. The oven baked pizzas are excellent!
This hostel has everything one can ask for. BIG, clean rooms, great location, very friendly and helpful staff, tours organized as well as information on public transport. The lobby is a very nice area to hang out. The only minor thing that is not perfect is that WiFi does not work in the rooms - but who needs that when there is a lobby?
The place has no "hostel" atmosphere at all. No place to hang out, not much information provided. They should also give better directions. I asked several taxi drivers to take me to Angelie from the bus station, but they did not know. We finally had to call and get directions. My dorm room only had one safety box with a key. However, the place is clean, the location is great, for Jiuzhaigou the price is as low as it gets, and the staff is friendly enough and do try to answer your questions.
A bit too much of a party hostel for my taste. Drinking games including puking... Otherwise perfectly fine. The dorm rooms are a bit small. Friendly, helpful staff, and very good location.
The hostel is very nice and very conveniently located close to a restaurant street. Also, the staff is very friendly. The only negative thing is that they announce that they have free pickup from the train station which is not always true. If you arrive late in the evening, they may not have any driver available. They were supposed to email me the day before my arrival to confirm about the pickup. They never emailed me, and nobody picked me up.
The location is perfect and staff is very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The only minor drawbacks were mosquitoes in the room (I was there in July), too soft bunk beds in my opinion (I am a light person), and thin walls which made it a bit noisy. You have everything you need here in terms of WiFi, safety lockers, kitchen, luggage storage and full access to everything after you check out on the day of your departure. I highly recommend!
The staff at this hostel are really super friendly and helpful. The facilities are also very nice and clean, and are located a few minutes walk from the main street. The only drawback is that there were not enough lockers for everyone.
It is a very average type of hostel, not a place where I would hang out too long. I was told I could hand in my valuables at the reception, which I did. When I came to pick them up, they had a hard time finding them, which was kind of ennerving. When they finally found them, they did not verify that what they handed to me actually belonged to me. They have a laptop for guests to use, but it ran out of batteries and they could not find the charger.

I stayed in a dorm room for six nights. The rooms very cleaned every day and the entire place was tidy. Breakfast, which is included in the price, was plentiful and delicious and different every day. Glenn lets you borrow movies and various beach equipment for free, and snorkeling gear is half the price of what is offered on the beach. Ok, the place is not ON the beach, but it only takes a couple of minutes to walk there. Excellent value for West Bay!
