Liked: Stayed in a dorm room. Nice big in-room lockers large enough to fit a carry on suitcase. Common areas very conducive to meeting people. Even though the hostel claims it's location is not that good, it's very close to the metro station so no issues getting around. Breakfast buffet was very good particularly the dumplings.

Disliked: Mattress was truly awful. It was a 1 inch thick piece of foam which was badly worn, you could tell because the sides were much higher than the middle. It gave me back ache for the whole time I stayed, and was difficult to sleep. I discovered at the end only top bunks had this terrible mattress, so if I was to recommend this hostel I'd say make sure it's a bottom bunk! One particular staff member had a poor attitude and acted like everything was a hassle and you should never disturb him. All the rest were great. No wifi in rooms and could be a bit spotty.

Liked: It's very close to a metro station and in a bustling neighbourhood (even if it's not close to the centre of town). It provides a free breakfast, including genuine Chinese breakfast food, which was much appreciated and the staff were generally helpful in telling me where I could find things I needed near the hostel.

Disliked: There are only 2 showers on the ground floor, which meant I had to wait quite a while for a shower, but otherwise it was good.

Liked: the room was really big, and beds were comfortable. The staff at the desk were freindly, and helped us with bookings etc.

Disliked: Only one little thing - neither the desk staff or the cleaning staff would give us a second towel, we stayed four nights and had booked a twin for the two of us, but only got one towel between us each day.

Liked: Big with lots of facilities, nice and clean with free breakfast.

Disliked: It could be brilliant if the staff were friendly, however everyone I came across was very grumpy and bored, not willing to help. It was a great place but because of this the atmosphere wasn't very relaxed or friendly, and you couldn't ask for advice with attractions ect.

Liked: Very close to the subway station. Staff is very helpful and will help you with directions and on getting cab, even wrote where I was going in Chinese so just in case the cab driver did not speak English. Hostel is very clean. The breakfast was awesome with a lot of foods to choose from. Huge hang out area.

Disliked: There was nothing that I disliked!!
