    Charming hostel with very helpful staff. After staying in big hotels in China we were very happy to stay at this friendly place. They will give advice on how to go places and what to see. Also they have a nice restaurant next door that gives you a discount with a room card. The location is amazing, you can happily spend the day just waking around there.

    THIS HOSTEL IS AMAZING!!! We absolutely loved our time here - the staff were incredibly accommodating and helped us by writing notes in mandarin for taxi drivers etc. The room itself was great (we had a twin room) and the location was perfect. Easy walk to the West Lake, food and shops everywhere around but still quiet and felt very safe. We can not recommend this hostel enough and if we ever come back to Hangzhou will easily pick this hostel again. Lots of love from New Zealand!

    I chose to spend a couple of dollars more to stay in the Superior 6 Bed Female Dorm. The dorm was clean and private. I especially love the bathroom and toilet. However, due to the bathroom is located inside the dorm and it is very near to our beds. Be prepared there will be inconsiderate people using the hair dryer 2am in the morning! I would suggest maybe the hostel can put up some notes/notice to advise people to be a little considerate especially in the midnight when everyone is sleeping.

    The location is what makes this place great! It is 1-2 streets over from the historic Hefang shopping street and the entire area around the hostel is absolutely beautiful. The private twin room is perfect for two travelers and the cleanliness and size of the room is incredible for the price. I would highly recommend this hostel for anyone looking to go a bit off the beaten path and see the real Hangzhou!

    Pretty good, considering the location. Staff was very helpful! Would love to come back. The dorms are nice and spacious. But the location is really key. Walking distance from the West lake.

    I paid more and stayed in the superior female dorms and the extra money was definitely worth the cleaner and more private living quarters, especially with the bathroom. Less people tend to choose this option; there was only one other girl one night and no one else the next night. I also want to commend the hostel staff - who are absolutely amazing - for settling a payment discrepancy between online and front desk prices. They went through the online system to return the extra money I paid!

    Quite good. Location is good—in the area of Hefang Street, which has lots of shops & restaurants & traditional architecture & it’s not too far from the main attraction—West Lake. Best thing about this hostel is its restaurant next door—SO GREAT. Spent several years in China, had lots of delicious Chinese food, and this restaurant is wonderful! Def try the restaurant! Stayed in a priv room. It was good—clean & comfy, but there were several mosquitoes that I had to kill before I could sleep.

    Very Good

    Great location; very friendly staff; and free drinking water. I rented a single room. Sadly it was noisy (I could hear TVs, children, and hairdryers from other rooms. I could also hear people using the stairs and corridor); the shower leaked; and there was no desk for using a laptop; and the hostel wifi was poor in the reception area and in my room. As much as I love cats, I'd also recommend the hostel move the cat's litter tray and cage from the staircase to a hidden area.
