    Claire was amazing ! Right next to the subway, The rooms were cleaned every day, the bathroom was satisfactory. What I liked most about this hostel was the environment, felt at home instantly like I do with every good hostel. The dog was really nice and the meals she had to offer was substantial considering the small kitchen. If I return to Suzhou I’m staying at blue gate! (If you’re a perfectionist looking for an incredibly modern and clean hostel this is not for you)

    This hostel was a really great place to stay for the weekend. I stayed in the dorm room style with 6 girls. It is about a 5-10 minute walk from the metro station, and about 30 minutes from the train station. It is super close to the canal and just a short walk to the streets with shops and food. You can buy american style breakfast in the morning. In the hostel, there is one squatty potty and one wester style toilet, and two showers that are shared. Overall, great location and a great place!

    Nice place to stay in a fairly central location. Not so close to the train station but near the canals and a big food market. Staff was helpful on recommending I visit Tongli water town which was a highlight

    The hostel is pretty easy to locate. About 5 mins walk from the metro station. Claire and the cleaning lady, they are very friendly and helpful. The female dorm is at the same level of the male dorm or the mixed dorm, probably. For female travelers, be prepared you might bump into male travelers walking around in their underwear due to the shared bathrooms and toilets. Overall, the experience in the hostel was pretty pleasant. :)

    This hostel should not be a 8.5/10, it's more of a 6. Pros: close to metro and walking street. Cons: not a good place to socialize (bar = they sell beer in the lobby), bathroom is set up to do laundry not to shower and get ready for the day, the beds and the bedroom doors are loud.
