Liked: This hostel is located in old town of Qingdao. So you can go to many tourist attractions by feet, about 10~15 minutes, such as Xinhaoshan park, Zan qiao pier, Pi Chai Yuan, and so on. and I'm sure that nobody can booked like this hostel. This hostel is the most cheapest accommodations in Qingdao, but you can get big pleasure because of friendly staffs and nice location. If you consider of accommodations in Qingdao, I recommend this hostel.

Disliked: Facilities of shared restroom and room's heating system are not good. Breakfast at the cafeteria is expensive. And wi-fi signal is very low :( Besides, if you search for the internet to use wi-fi, you can't access on facebook and google because of blockage of china government.

Liked: Very welcoming and friendly. Enjoyed my stay very much. Bar has nice atmosphere and good (mostly Western) food ththat's not too expensive. Staff were helpful and kind, eg helped me book ferry, recommended nice places to go. Well located for the station and old town.The free map of the local area is really useful and thoughtfully prepared. Wifi in common areas.Stayed in 7 bed dorm: sheets were cleam, locker with key, access to hot drinking water, laundry (160 yuan) worked ok and they gave me detergent for free. Some nice common areas including library up in the roof for quieter time.

Disliked: Bar often smokey in the evening. Wifi not the greatest.
