    Love the place! The location is great (just a short 5-10mins walk from the nearest metro, Chunxi Road Station) The staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful. Cheap beers during Happy Hours I got to meet many other friendly backpackers Tried their Six room dorm, Single Private Room and Twin Bed Private Room. All were amazing and value for money.

    The only reason I gave it a 9.7 instead of a 10 is because they should have the bar on the rooftop. There is a bar in the entrance level but the rooftop is amazing and would be 10 if the bar was up there. Staff especially Marcus was awesome and the rooms were nice and clean with comfy beds.

    Great location, great staff, great rooms and bathrooms. All my roommates had been Chinese and I didn't make any friends in the dorm. The barbecue party they put on my last night was nice. Every night there's someone selling a lot of fruit outside the front door. The panda tour is a rip off, just go on your own. Staff makes themselves available via WeChat.

    Relaxed hostel at great location in the city, with metro and shopping/eating/bar areas within walking distance. Staff is friendly, helpful and organized several nice events. Dorms are decent, equipped with lockers and curtains for each bed.

    Good hostel, but we had a mixed experience with the staff: we ordered a ticket to a top rated opera, and asked the staff for help to get the payment through. Instead they booked us into a hostel-arranged opera, which was really... average and felt like a tourist trap. We also paid extra for so-called 'VIP' tickets which turned out to have no extra value at all.. But over all the staff was friendly and helpful, and the hostel was really good.

    The hostel had a very unfriendly atmosphere. The reception staff kept telling us wrong information, ie cost of taxis and even our plane terminal! I think it’s because they want you to take their expensive tours! I also was not impressed with the 4 birds stuffed in a tiny cage! Would not recommend anyone to stay here
