Liked: nice clean hostel. Other reviews described that the hostel tries to make money off you in any way, which is a little bit true. Internet connection was very good, thus we did not mind having to pay 1RMB per 15min. breakfast (28yuan)and drinks were priced similarly to other hostels in town. Good location near metro, bakery and restaurants. This hostel is located in a more modern (expat) area of town. Lots of staff always buzzing about and the bathrooms and public areas were kept very clean and tidy. secure rooms with key cards and lockers in room and additional lockers available near the reception. Lots of services available (all with additional costs though)

Disliked: staff was a bit reluctant to help us get a taxi to the hospital but realizing that they probably look a bit odd if they would not help somebody to get to the hospital they could be convinced to walked out to the road with us and called a cab - problem solved and afterwards very helpful with storing medicine in fridge.

Liked: Great location in a fun neighborhood, helpful staff (although not very fluent in English), great highly recommended breakfast, fun bar. The rooms also have air conditioning.

Disliked: The rooms were as expected for the price. That said, they were full of mosquitoes. My boyfriend and I were covered in mosquito bites after staying just two days there.
