    I am on a cycling holiday and the location of this hostel is so central that no cycles are allowed in that area. When the staff at the hostel heard about my dilemma they sent 2 staff members out to negotiate with the security about my cycle. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I have read that some people are not happy about certain things at this hostel, I really do believe people are spoilt. If I was in Nanjing again I would stay here.

    The Hostel location is superb. It is in the middle of the historical area, thoug this makes it a bit hard to find. The Hostel is clean and cosy. The staff was friendly but their english was moderate due to their age. However I would definitely stay there again.

    The hostel is in a great location. I arrived in the evening, and it was a little confusing to find, however, I googled the hotel, and followed the location which was perfect. The hostel was super cute, the staff spoke English and were very helpful. The room was a good size with a good and clean shower and bathroom. There were lager lockers provided in the room for luggage. I would highly recommend this hostel. I didn’t eat there, but it looked good, and at a great price!

    This is a very lovely hostel located right near the old city wall in the old district of Nanjing. It's in a lovely old building, and the staff was all very friendly. The beds are comfortable too. It was a little difficult to find, and we walked in circles a bit coming from the metro station, but once you find it the location is very good. Maybe a little bit pricy for China, but overall a very nice place and worth the money/effort to get there.

    Pros: the location is amazing and the staff helpful. We didn't use the bar but it looked ok. Cons: only stay here if you can tolerate mega levels of noise especially in the dorms! They have crammed in far to many bunks for the room size which are of poor quality so creak at any movement! Lastly our form was full of rude and noisy young Chinese who have no idea how to behave in a dorm! And took absolutely no attention to complaints made via the staff!
