Fine for a night. Lockers cost $15/day ($5 plus a $10 lock) and no real kitchen to speak of, just a hot plate. Common area is just a big dining table. Plenty of outlets to charge but nowhere to hang out.

We were here over the holidays and I’m sure it’s different other times of year but the place was full of families with young children running around and long-term locals. The hostel is run like a home but that means the staff invite their friends over to hang out and get high. That being said, the beds are nice and have curtains for privacy so that’s definitely a plus.

Staff is great and super helpful--thanks Maryam! The facilities could use some work. The bathroom stalls don't have doors on them and there aren't any (working) lockers. It's a really good place to meet travelers but it is a bit of a party hostel. Expect guests to come back to your room around 4am every day and expect to wake up to empty beer bottles and dirty dishes everywhere. Breakfast in the morning is great and the free filtered water is a nice treat.

Great hotel in a quiet alley. The view of the Ganges is amazing, and the staff--especially Ricky--is super helpful. We had some issues with our onward train tickets and the staff called around to help us sort it, and accommodated us for an extra night with little notice. They then woke up at 5AM to check the status of our train for us and really treated us well. Great place. Thanks guys!

Really nice place with a great courtyard. Just inside the Eastern city gate, far enough from the Foreigner's strip to keep some of its authenticity but close enough to give you the salvation you probably need. Really helpful staff and better deals on bus tickets than the multitudinous travel agents around town.

Great place in a great location. Good food, pool tables, local/expat atmosphere. The rooms themselves are also far enough from the bar area that it's not that noisy at night, too.

Great environment perched 16 flights above the city. The staff is helpful, the dorms have large lockers (and free locks), and the cafe has a pretty decent breakfast.

Standard Hong Kong budget room, but in a great location in Mong Kok. Small rooms (as expected in HK) with thin walls (as expected in HK) but the owner, Jacky, was helpful and welcoming!

Great hostel tucked into an art district, just east of the Yellow Crane Tower--walkable on a nice Spring morning! The staff was helpful and the bar and restaurant area was large. Free wifi was nice as well!

Awesome building in an old synaggoue. The bar area is nice, and the staff could help with a trip to the ice festival at a discount. The location was excellent, right around the corner from St. Sofia's. The bathrrom and shower situation was poor at best. Only one shower for the entire hostel and it's in an unheated room. The unisex toilets were a little questionable as well. Overall, good location and good value.

One of the nicest hostels I've ever been to. Pod beds with universal outlets (and USB chargers), nice kitchen area, rooftop garden, gym, pool table, and loads of movies. Great place to stay.

Excellent hostel! Great activites every day (walking tour, bike tour, etc.) that pairs up with their partner hostel. The staff is AMAZING and very friendly and helpful. Good food and the prices are good too--both Chinese and Western dishes. I will definitely stay here next time I'm in Chengdu

Super helpful staff. Weekend rooftop party was awesome, with burgers and pizza, and of course Tsing Tao beer. Shared showers are in the basement, which is a bit annoying, but no other complaints. On the top of a hill, and right near the markets

Helpful staff could map out the best way to get up the mountain, and gave a pretty good estimate on the time it would take as well! The computers in the lobby could use an upgrade but the wifi works pretty well.
