Customer Travel Tip: Stay in Ping Jiang and avoid this hostel. See a garden and a museum and you have really seen what Suzhou has had to offer.

Liked: Most of the sites can be walked to in the north of the city

Disliked: Too many electric bikes.. construction of the subway had us walking in the middle of the street with the cars. When does China think of pedestrians as important?

Customer Travel Tip: I.M. pei museum All the gardens ( recommend the small one's like garden of the nets ) day trip to one of the little water towns around the center. walk around at night near the hostel is a great scenery.

Liked: visiting the gardens and especially the I.M. Pei museum ( for architecture lovers)

Disliked: the old city centre has given away for many boring commercial buildings, at first sight it makes the city centre un attractive.
