    SanMao Youth Hostel was the perfect place to stay the night after getting off our river cruise. The location is very convenient and easy to find. The staff was awesome and we felt welcome.

    Cool rooftop. Bit far away from city centre and bus stations. Rooms were a bit tiny. Really nice and helpful stuff, we were guided from the train station to the place with Wechat. Without it's impossible to find!

    This was the best hostel experience! The staff were so friendly and helpful. We booked a dorm, but they upgraded to a private free of charge. Our room was beautiful and clean; there was a lovely loft with a bed and a little seating area and bathroom down below. It was comfortable and secure, and there was a washer and nice facilities. While the hostel was not located in the central part of town, it was near a lot of restaurants and shops. We would stay here again!

    The hostel is mixed for locals and international travellers. The location is good but it was a bit hard to find. The staff speaks a bit of English only but they do their best to help.

    Kinda difficult to find, but they send someone out to find you. Very clearly someone's converted flat, but very cozy for it! Nice view, and conveniently right down town. No key deposit, as there's no need for keys. Westerners keep in mind: no western toilet

    The location is great if you need to take a bus, it’s just in front of the bus station. You have also a lot of stores and restaurants in the area. But, the hostel is almost impossible to find by yourself, as it’s in a residential building (the couple rent beds in their own apartment). The girl is very nice and helpful, and she helped me book my train ticket to Vietnam. The appartement is very clean, but has only one bathroom.

    Small friendly hostel in Central Yichang. The hostel is on the upper floor of a tower block. The facilities were clean. Recommended.

    The hostel was clearly an apartment made into a hostel but there were some very nice balconies. The hostels commonarea is really cold but you really cant sit in them anyways because the staff and their friends kind of take over the places. One staff was very helpful with information and okay english. We were only foringeers there. It was Nice with a kitchen and bathroom/toilet in the dormroom. Yes it is very hard to find but we got help from people around.
