Liked: Shuyuan is a refreshing reconnect with the traveller scene during a trip generally away from it all, and it's nice to do sometimes. It's not really a 'party' hostel and there are plenty of quiet nooks to relax and talk in. Food and drink on site were appreciated after a long day and the other guests respectful. Of others - unlike some recent Chinese mountain based dorms.

Liked: Great hostel, right by the South Gate of the city with great views and a lot to do around. Small but clean dorms. GREAT bar, you get a free beer EVERY DAY, but the hostel is still quiet so you can enjoy both sides. Big commom areas to hang around, friendly staff with good English.

Disliked: The directions were just not enough, plus the location in the map was not exact and the address in Chinese was wrong so it was hard to get there the first even if it is actually fairly easy to find once you know where.

Liked: The reception staff were very helpful giving us a map, and telling us exactly where our room was, what to see in the city and the free beer at the bar. The bar was great, and the free beer was a big size.

Disliked: It was difficult to find. There was no locks on the lockers.

Liked: Great location, plenty of space for hanging out with other travelers, clean...

Disliked: One of the staff was very very rude, the rest were o.k. When you book it says there is a free pick up from the train station BUT they dont mention that this doesnt go for both train stations...Its just for the one closer to the hostel.

Liked: The place was in a traditional courtyard, and it's very well furbished. The facilities and the restrooms were clean. There's a bar in the basement that has a chill vibe.

Disliked: The staff while I was there was not very helpful nor friendly -- maybe the weather's too hot? There's not really any AC anywhere besides your rooms, so in the summer it gets reallly hot.

Liked: Really nice building, good facilities (including one of the best bars in town). Great location. And a guitar to play!

Disliked: Laundry had to be handed in and in return you are given a receipt. It was not made clear what would happen to this- as it turns out, you had to return and ask for it. How long it would take was not obvious, and if the staff weren't in the laundry room at the time, too bad.Also, the first time I visited the cafe, somebody told me to wait a few minutes to order. I didn't realise that she was the one working there, but as it turns out, she was, and this was so she could finish playing a game on her phone. When she was done she then wandered out and reappeared about 10 minutes later.Was also woken by staff playing music in the cafe at about 6:30 am.

Liked: Staff were so friendly, staff could book train tickets for you rather that battling the train stations, great terracotta warriors tour organised by the hostel, free dumpling making classes, very social and party hostel, amazing bar downstairs that was popular with tourists and locals, free train station pick up in the morning

Disliked: The squat toilets were not cleaned regularly and the staff tried to mask the smell with insence which made it worse
