    This place is truly stunning, had a very traditional Chinese style/feel. Location was great. It's a very touristy area, so lots to eat and buy. Staff were friendly and fun to talk with. Had a private room - very satisfied. Not a far walk from the closest station. Food they provided was delicious, mostly had my breakfast and dinner here.

    We had a great time in Suzhou and at this hostel. Uncharacteristically, I lost my passport and the hostel staff were helpful and accommodating (ended up finding my passport—a Chinese tourist found it and turned it over to the police!). Anyway, we stayed in a private room with a private bath—very satisfactory. The location is perfect. The ambiance is nice. The breakfast menu is good. Definitely recommend this place!

    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 was very well located right next to the busy night market street in the centre of Suzhou. The staff could speak some English and even upgraded my room to a private. This may have been due to a lack of other guests, as it was very empty during my stay. The interior is nicely designed in a typical chinese style. Unfortunately there where only a few showers far away from my room. For food and drinks you can visit the hostel bar or roam around the many stands and tea shops nearby.

    While this is on the old street in Suzhou and full of character, I found the staff to be unhelpful. I needed to use the PC to top off my WeChat and it was not installed and no one spoke enough English or cared to help me solve the problem. As an HI hostel, I felt they could have been more accommodating. Instead when I was visiting during high peak Chinese tourist time, the staff seemed to be nonplussed and just raking in the cash for Chinese tourists. Beautiful facilities and great food.

    Outstanding location, interesting building, helpful staff and comfortable bed. However, the room, on the ground floor, suffered from damp and smelt very musty. Would recommend avoiding the ground floor rooms, especially at the back of the property. Upper floors may be better

    This hostel has a good location walking distance from metro and on an old shopping street. Good definitely benefit from having more showers and toilets. The staff didn’t even show me to my room which was unusual. The ac was good and lockers with a lock and key are provided. The hostel isn’t much more than a place to sleep.
