Liked: The location of this hostel was good, it was a ten minute walk from the subway and there were a lot of things going on around the hostel. Our room was nice and we had a view of the river. The beds were comfortable and the shower was good.

Disliked: The hostel wasn't serving food and didn't have an explanation for why. The staff seemed friendly but they didn't speak much English and their knowledge of Chongqing was not as you'd expect from somebody working in a hostel, we asked for directions to 2 museums and both were wrong. Check out was at 12pm and I was unhappy when a member of staff knocked on our door at 11 30 to tell us to leave.

Liked: Nice location in an ancient town area, good restaurant with lots of possibilities to spend time, rooms and beds ok.

Disliked: Even though I am used to, it might be a problem for foreigner to use chinese toilets, there aren't any western, plus you need to bring your own paper.

Liked: The staff were generally friendly, the old town in which the hostel is located is quite nice

Disliked: The staff didn't have any information about Yangtze cruises (one of the main things to do in Chongqing). The hostel is a long way from the centre of town (about 25 mins by taxi) although the area by the hostel is much nicer than the centre. The toilets and bathroom were really basic.

Liked: big sofas! hall ways to rooms were very cinematic, like Barton Fink. kitten. balcony. excellent location in old town.

Disliked: VERY dark in halls and toilets etc. and i can put up with karaoke just about but not at that volume, I was alone but it drove me out of common room two nights running, ands theres no way you could have had conversation with somone. but maybe it was just for holiday week. chinese food tasteless. pizza advertised but not available. breakfast in menu but not available.

Liked: The location is really great. Its within Ciqikou, a recreated "ancient town" which is fun. There's a lot going on and the hostel's location is right next to the river- so its quite scenic. Its also really close to Shapingba hot spots like 3 gorges square and the museum of martyrs.

Disliked: Because it is located in a tourist area, it can be loud. Also, the hostel is somewhat darkly light and a little unkempt. Its not that I would say it's dirty, but it could use a more thorough cleaning between guests.

Liked: the staff were fantastic and went out of theirway to be helpful. What we didn't like was the poor restaurant or oprovision for drinks and food. For example it took 50 minutes for them to serve two simple pancakes with sugar for breakfast. this was at 8.30 and we were the only customers. Terrible.
