    I stayed at Kaiyue for 9 nights, which I initially thought was way longer than anyone should stay in Qingdao but after my stay there can assure anyone who reads this that you could really stay there forever if you are at this hostel. The atmosphere was very quiet and chill but the location, the staff, the facilities and that amazing roof balcony all made it great. Furthermore, the staff were great, especially Helen who was super nice and helpful. I will definitely return.

    Guests need to bring a compass or download the compass app for their phone. It doesn't require internet, just a phone with a magnetic sensor. The hostel doesn't explain that the pickup and drop points for the 702 airport bus are in different locations, like a half mile apart. I got lost. They could include links to both Google maps and Baidu maps and encourage guests to take screenshots. I pulled out my compass and went north after arriving at the hospital. Beyond the directions, it was good.

    Staff were wonderful and helpful — as an illiterate, China can be really tricky to navigate but the staff helped me out with maps and buses. The bar/restaurant in the basement has a great atmosphere.

    One of the nicest hostels Ive stayed in thus far in China! Very clean facilities. The staff were friendly and very helpful in assisting with directions. The location was near to bus routes and walking distance to some attractions. The restaurant/bar had nice selections as well. Would recommend.

    This place seemed more like a hotel than a hostel. It had a nice feeling to the place, and was very quiet. A great place for a relaxing weekend away. The staff was very friendly and helpful, but it is not so much a place to meet other travelers, since common areas were very small and the staff turns out the lights after 11 PM. The restaurant in the hostel served very good dinners, but tend to run out of different dishes/ food items as the evening wore on. But the bar was nice, but is pricey.

    I would’ve expected a hostel like this to have female-only dorms. Having only mixed dorms was a little disappointing, but generally the hotel was very nice and the staff very helpful.
