Liked: The Hostel is unique is way the design and environment, public area is wide, comfortable and have a nice atmosphere. Staff is helpful and able to speak english

Disliked: Cleanliness can be improved, the bathrooms for big dormitory room is only 3 and located on the 1st floor while the room is on 3rd floor. Location is a bit far and not much nightlife around.

Liked: The common area on the main floor was quite nice. The people working were friendly and the yogurt and muesli breakfast was good. Location good, close to metro and walking distance to other sites.

Disliked: The hostel says their "amazing" loft has 15 beds. This is not true..I walked around and counted 32 beds. Had I know that I could be potentially sharing a room with 30 others...I would have not booked. The air flow in the loft was terrible...the fans wouldn't turn on? And the AC barely flowed the first night and not at all the second. There is a toilet that the loft shares upstairs. It is disgusting though. I've used far nicer public squat toilets than this. Cleanliness really needs to be addressed. The smell would creep up into the warm loft at night. For showers there are 3 on the main floor, extremely small and as well not particularly clean. There is an additional toilet and squat toilet on the main floor. The facilities seem insufficient to accommodate the loft alone...if the 32 bed dorm is full...that is a lot of traffic on the one toilet they share. It was already terribly smelly and gross and thankfully the loft wasn't totally full. Also for security, the door to the loft never shut properly and lock. Then it was just a cloth curtain to get into the room. I did not feel particularly safe especially with that many people coming in and out all night, and never knowing if the last person properly shut the door. We were very happy to leave.

Liked: english speaking at the front deskprice

Disliked: do not take the cheapest dorm. you will be in the attic with 30 people and you will have feeling as you would be sleeping in the military camp. also the showers are in the first floor, and the toilets (which are upstairs) are smelly. if you take this hostel, i would recommend smaller room. the taxi to the hostel from the train station will cost you aprox 25 RMB, (do not take "black" taxi)

Liked: Big dormitory.Close to the subway, a nice lounge but a little expensive for drinks and food. Accepts major credit cards. Staff speak good English!!

Disliked: the lounge was old and worn out with unstable or broken chairs sometimes.The poor direction in English. The address should not be translated to English like "Plum village and Plum street" The shower on the 1st floor and no ushering when you check in. The blankets and sheets are in the locker.

Liked: Staff were helpful when our room card didn't initially work. WIFI was really strong (there was a router right outside our door).

Disliked: Had to slam our room door to get it to shut, and had to move one of the beds slightly to get the door to open or close. It's about a 10 minute walk to either the metro or the bus.

Liked: The atmosphere was great. They had a cute puppy.

Disliked: They refused to serve food, even though the menu said it was until 13.30. Also, it would be nice if they could train the puppy a bit...

Liked: Communal lounge area nice and relaxing, air con mostly efficient, some staff great, good location (when we found it) good laundry facilities

Disliked: Nowhere to eat/ drink your own food. 'Kitchen' was a microwave and hot water dispenser- no bin, no sink. Too few showers and toilets (all of which not very clean- long black hair covered the wet floor). Some staff less helpful.

Liked: Convenient location, not far from metro.

Disliked: A bit difficult to find if you take a taxi. From metro station is easy to reach. Even tho they have a board with prices for breakfast and coffee, it's not available.
