Liked: Nothing

Disliked: This hostel is just awful. I never review my hostels after my stays because generally I have positive experiences and the existing reviews capture the quality of the hostel well, but this one I must comment to WARN other travellers. I am a well travelled individual and have stayed at hostels around the world. Do yourself a favour, DO NOT STAY HERE. The location of this hostel is not only highly inconvenient (as it is far from the city), furthermore to try and find it when you get to Zhonghuamen Station is close to impossible without having to call the hostel. I can speak intermediate mandarin, and even the taxi drivers have no knowledge of the hostels existence. That is really saying something in China. The bathrooms are not particularly well kept and smell heavily of urine, the beds are a thin mattress on wooden slats that creak every time you move (you can literally feel your bones on the slats). Apart from waking up with a very sore back, I hardly slept as the hotel is close to a highway and a rail line which is noisy throughout the night. It is also a 15min walk from the closest railway station. This is particularly unsafe at night time when walking back, especially as a lone female traveller. The staff are unsympathetic and speak limited English. Furthermore there were no foreign backpackers in sight. I hope other travellers will read this review and choose to stay elsewhere, as I had an awful experience here at this hostel (if you could call a hostel, in my option it is a shabby add on to a sub par hotel). If you do choose to stay here, DO NOT use the address provided in the hostel world generated email in google maps, it is wrong and will take you 20km out of Nanjing city in a taxi.

Liked: The rooms were clean and the hostel itself was big. They have a restuarant/bar which is nice and convenient. Although, the prices are a little high, the food was good. Overall, I like this hostel and will probably stay here if I visit Nanjing again.

Disliked: The location is outside the city center, but the area it was in is nice and clean. It's a 15 min walk to the metro, which I don't mind I walk the same amount where I am staying now in Shanghai.

Liked: very clean, the hostel itself is beautiful and set up realy well. Cheap drinks at the bar and very skilled entertainers at night out near the bar. Pool table was good and more places you could need to sit and chill out. very spacous also.

Disliked: At first I thought the location was a drawback, but then i quickly learnt that the hostel is situated in beatiful quite self-contained district area that was only a short walk from the metro, also it only cost 18 RMB to get to the bars in Nanjing itself.

Liked: They had a nice coffee bar and a cool outdoor landscape. The location was quiet and a bit withdrawn. The room had good heating. The place is a short walk to the city's wall.

Disliked: It didn't look like they had cleaned it. There was trash on the floor of the bathroom, used stuff in the shower, and trash underneath the beds. It was a long walk or a bus ride to the metro station, so a bit difficult to get any where. We couldn't find anything to eat in the vacinity.

Liked: Los dormitorios son realmente limpios, y es una propiedad bastante bonita, con mucho verde afuera y en general muy silenciosa, ha excepción del ruido de los trenes que de vez en cuando pasan de noche. Cuenta con un bar no muy economico pero con muy buena musica, buena opcion de cervezas y comida. Ademas de mesa de billar y lugares para relajarse y leer.

Disliked: La ubicacion no es la mejor, aproximadamente 20 minutos caminando desde la estacion de metro, que por cierto atraviesa unas calles sucias llenas de negocios de mecanica. Pero si caminas al salir de la estacion n el sentido contrario del hostal encontraras un centro comercial nuevo con un Wallmart (aproximadamente 30 minutos aminando) donde puedes conseguir cosas para el desayuno, ya que dentro el hostal cuesta 36 o 38 yuanes, que es bastante costoso para los precios de China.

Liked: While the location is more or less convenient, the setting of the hostel makes it very interesting. You don't feel like you're in the middle of the city (except for the annoying train sound from afar). There are cheap local restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk from the hostel. The bus station to go to the airport is not too far by walk.

Disliked: 15-20 minute walk to the subway.

Liked: The room was really cheap, and the showers were fantastic. Also, the WiFi was not too bad. Not far away from the hostel is the metro, and there are lots of nice small citchens where you can have a decent meal for a great price.

Disliked: It was a little bit difficult to find. You should know that the histel is closely located to the OLD railway station south, not the fancy new one. Otherwise, it can take a while to get there.

Liked: facilities are fairly new and clean

Disliked: directions were absolutelly terrible. I had the address and directions in both english & chinese, but nobody could point me out how to get there. Location is terrible, after getting of subway need to cross a huge highway in the middle of nowhere. after I got to the place there were no signs on how to get to the hostel's building inside the campus, and of course the security guard didn't speak any english nor knew about the hostel at all.

Liked: Great bar and restaurant. Really spacious, with cool decor. All toiletries provided.

Disliked: The location is not brilliant, it's a fair walk into town, though you can get a metro from about 15 mins walk down the road. I'd advise printing off the email with the address in Chinese as the business park that it's inside is a labyrinth of warehouses and not very well signposted. The security are helpful if you have the address - they took us right to the door.
