    When I went there were only a couple of other backpackers there, so it wasn't much of an atmosphere, but I got a good vibes from the place. The facilities were clean, the storage lockers were large and very secure. The beds were hard (like lying down on them it felt hard), but it wasn't a problem and I slept just fine. The hostel workers were helpful nad nice. Highly recommend it!

    Great hostel with amazing staff. This was my first time in China and they helped me out a lot. They also helped us arrange transportation to Qinghai Lake, and told us other spots that we could visit in the city.

Very unconvenient!

    The building that the hostel is in feels rather shabby when you go in, but the hostel itself is okay and clean. The hostel owner is very helpful.

    Very hard bed. Good location for food and bars. Staff did help to organise a private driver but no further details were provided for what it would entail. If you are on a budget, this place is ok.

    Hard to contact a staff. The entrance street is very dark. Bad Atmosphere and decoration make it look like a horror movie.
