Robert Beveridge thinks…

"Bed's were massive! Could easily fit a couple inside. Right next to the Dai Temple which also leads up to Taishan and it also sits in a very lively area in town."

Liked: Beds were big and really comfortable. Dorm room was quite big and nice.

Disliked: Toilets were smelly and seems that nobody cleans toilets or showers. There was no light in female shower rooms and the place where the miror stands was so dark that it is not possible to use the mirror. Rats on the roof, you can hear them walking at night.

Liked: Bed's were massive! Could easily fit a couple inside. Right next to the Dai Temple which also leads up to Taishan and it also sits in a very lively area in town.

Disliked: I said I liked the lively location the hostel sits in. But be prepared to woken as early as 6am as the locals wake up and give the street a bit of vocal thunder. The hostels bathroom and toilets could get a look to, the toilet smlt rather bad and the showers were a little groggy.

Liked: Very large beds and bedrooms, very comfortable clean and with lots of wood-style applications, nice surrounding, ancient foodstreet and shopping street and very central, also very good to find by description and good point to start climbing Taishan from the very beginning (just arround the corner)

Disliked: Booked 2 beds in a dorm and got 2 beds in 2 dorms with only one key for saves. Not a problem at all, but I think a point to mention.

Liked: The location is very good if you are going to climb Mounta Taishan and nothing else - its 2 mins walk from Dai temple and u can take taxi that costs you only 7 yuan from hostel to Red Gate and start climbing. It's also very nice that washing is free for you.

Disliked: Basically the staff were helpful, especially if its one of the girls, the guy however is a little 无所谓 and you have to ask him constantly to answer with details. Apart from that, it was all great.

Liked: It is the only hostel in Tai'An. It is close to the spectacular Mount TaiShan

Disliked: This hostel is the worst we have stayed at in China in 4 weeks. The beds are as hard as wooden planks, there is no wifi operating in the rooms and the staff did the absolute bare minimum to help us with even the simplest of questions. It felt like we had checked into a soulless back street motel. Unfortunately there are very few other options for cheap accommodation in Tai'An so only stay here if you have to ......(fortunately climbing TaiShan is well worth it)

Liked: Spacious and clean room in a good location to climb Taishan (which we highly recommend to anyone thinking of doing it), which is about half an hour walk away from the entry gate.

Disliked: We had some very noisy guests staying next door but this is not the hostel's fault.

Liked: The staff are lovely and genuinely helpful. The bar is somewhat detached from the hostel meaning you can go there for a good drink but not be disturbed by it if you don't, The beds really are pretty comfortable and the place is spotless.

Disliked: Rooms are not coed.
