Good hostel for decent price. Very friendly staff, rooms weren't very cosy but they were clean. It's a place worth recommending, as they are supposedly very few like that in Milan.

Hi Inn Jingan Temple

Shanghai, China
80%

Hostel is located very close to Jing'An Temple, absolutely a great location and very easy to find. Unfortunately, the staff barely speks English and getting an answer for even the easiest question might turn out to be impossible. There is no bar in it, but many in the neighbourhood. Room standard is typical for hostels in Shanghai, could be more cosy.

The hostel is located in the very center of Shanghai, 1 min from the subway and 5min on foot from Bund. Stuff is friendly, even though they had some problems with English. The room was very spacious and clean, it also had a decent view. Unfortunately bed was a bit too short (and i'm only 1,76!) and the duvet was too small for two people. Still, for this price the place is definitely worth recommending.

The hostel is located in the center of Hanghzou, very close to West Lake, Shopping Centres and all kinds of facilities you might need. The staff was very helpful and explained us how to get anywhere we wanted to. Room was small, but we stayed there for one night only, so it had all that we needed. The only problem was that we had to go two floors down to take a shower.

Hostel is located in the city center, but it's not so easy to find it if you don't have a very detailed map. Rooms are very nice and clean but staff is far from being helpful- they pretend to be very nice, but all in all thaey don't know about anything and do not bother to check it, as they seem to be "busy" all the time. There are definitely better hostels in Shanghai.

Located in the centre of an old german district, it takes about 20min on foot to get to the sea (about 35min on foot to get to a decent beach) and 30 min to get to Badalung. Rooms were clean, but showers haven't been renovated for at least 15 years (still, they were clean). There's a nice bar/restaurant in it, but food is just ok. Stuff speak some english and they're willing to help. There are few hostels in Qingdao and this one seems to be the best.

Sanlitun Youth Hostel

Beijing, China

Located close to the subway, in a district full of pubs and shops. Staff was extremely helpful and they spoke great english. They also have a very nice restaurant/bar, which is open until 1am. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean. If you like going out until late, then this place is definitely a great destination for you.

Popularview Guesthouse

Vang Vieng, Laos
73%

Vang Vieng is a very small town, so everything is located in the city center. Hostel was quite expensive as for standards in Laos (breakfast was included, but its quality varied each day). Rooms are not very cosy, but they were clean. Bathroom was rather old and stinky. There is no pub or anything in the hostel, but lots of them around it. Stuff spoke good english, but they were not especially friendly. You can find cheaper places in Vang Vieng for this prace, with the same quality.


Tavern 47

Shangri-la, China
87%

Hostel is located in an old, tibetian-style building. Rooms are extremely cosy and they have their own unique style. As it located in the east of old town, you get everywhere within 5 minutes. Stuff was very helpful, even though their english was not very good. The only problem was that sometimes, we didn't have hot water. Except for it, a great place - definitely worth recommending. Check out, the terrace on the first floor!

Mama Naxi`s Guesthouse

Lijiang, China
77%

It's impossible to find any destination in Lijiang, because there's one street that goes all around the city, and there are many biuldings which have exactly the same number, which are located on it (wu yi lu). It took us half an hour to find it and nobody knew where it was. It's a typical backpackers' hostel, which you can rarely find in China. Big dorms and a cool, laid back atmosphere. Nice bar, always full of people. If it was only easier to find this place!

Hostel is located very close to a big buddhist temple, but it not in the city center. It takes about 20min on foot to get to the subway.

Place definitely worth recommending.

Location couldn't be any better as it is very close to People's Sq, 5min from the subway and 10min on foot from Nanjing Rd. Hostel is located in the old building and has its unique character - i guess that's the way foreigners want to see China. Room was clean and had some basic stuff like towels, cups, toilet paper etc. Staff was friendly, but we didn't have too much contact with them.

Hostel is located in the city center, 5min from People's Sq. Staff was very friendly, maybe a bit too biurocratic and slow. Room was very nice, a nice combination of chinese and western style. It was very clean and sharing the bathroom was not a big problem. There's also a nice bar/restaurant but when we came back at night (2 am) it was already closed.

Room was clean and very well designed. They had some western food in bar, but it was nothing special to be honest. Hostel is located in the old, renovated building, very close to People's Sq. Staff was nice and they spoke some decent English.

Located close to the city center. The room was rather clean although it was kinda smelly in it. There is a curfew so it's better to come back to the room around 11pm as it might be difficult after it. Nothing special to be honest but it is the only choice in this industrial city.

There is another hostel, which has almost the same name - it can be misleading. Located in the city center, close to the People's Sq subway station. Room was clean and the stuff was friendly. We just stayed here one night so we didn't check out the bar, but it seemed to be nice.

The Phoenix

Shanghai, China

Hostel is located in the very center of SHanghai, about 300 metres from the Subway station. Rooms are very spacious and they were clean when we got there. Staff was very friendly and they spoke good langauge. There is a very nice bar on the roof floor - unfortunately opened only until 12pm. Defenitely a nice place to stay - it looks more like hotel than a hostel.

I highly reccommend this place. Even though not easy to find, it's located in the very heart of Shanghai. There are shops and places to hang out all around the hostel. Room was small, but ery cosy and clean. Towels provided, shared bathroom for three rooms was clean and in a good condition. We didn't visit the bar but prices there seemed to be reasonable and place looked really nice. Staff was really helpful and they spoke pretty good English. I definitely reccommend this place and will go there the ver
