    I stayed here for a week. The location is perfect - right next to the lovely river walk of Pingjiang Road. The cafe/bar at the hostel is very quaint. At night, temperature of the dorm room was perfectly air conditioned. I loved getting to know the hostel staff over the week. The only complaint I have is there were a few mosquitoes in the dorm room and bathroom, but I suspect this is because the hostel is right next to the river. I highly recommend this place!

    Beautiful hostel on one of the main pedestrian streets in Suzhou old town. Staff was very helpful and understood enough English to help me (a helpless non-mandarin speaker). My only complaint is that the hallway to my room and bathroom was connected to an open courtyard. There were quite a few mosquitos and a small spider in the corner of the shower.

    The hostel is great! I booked a private room and it was very clean. The location is great and on Sundays you can have breakfast in a food truck that is just crossing the bridge in front of the hostel. One thing to improve is the English of the staff members :S all of them would profit from some practice.

    Nice Hostel located on one of the main tourist streets in the "historic" quarters of Suzhou. Friendly and helpful staff, free hot water and nice breakfast in the cafe (not included though, around 30-40 rmb). Really recommend checking out Yaba Shengjian's pan fried dumplings (located in walking distance, can be found on TripAdvisor), best I have ever had!

    awesome location, for the price it's really unbeatable. Beds are a little old and crickety but each bed has its own power socket and lamp which i appreciate. there aren't much common areas to socialise and they don't provide walking tours or options like that so if you're traveling solo be prepared for this. The issue i have is there aren't enough toilets so you'd have to wait your turn when the hostel is fully booked. Otherwise it's a fantastic choice to stay here and i'm glad i did.

    Our private room had damp but you can never guarantee quality in hostels. The location is situated in the heart of where you want to be in the city as a tourist. The atmosphere was welcoming and all amenities were solid. A strong breakfast was also available to order

    Great location, close to metro and near a lot of the cool stuff. Lacks a little atmosphere but all in all a good hostel. I would stay again.
