I stayed here for about a month while looking for an apartment here in Wuhan, the hostel is livable, but has a fair share of negative points as well. The best thing going for this hostel is their staff, which is mainly made up of young recent graduates. The location isn't bad either, being about 5 minutes from the metro....

This hostel is one of the worse ones in China. Staff speak english and are friendly at the front desk, but extremely impolite in the common area/bar/restaurant. We had a double room with shared bathroom. First, the "bathroom" was at the other end of this highly confusing building, and felt more like a shed than a bathroom. In addition, it...

Reading the reviews here and the feedback I had from Chinese people, it looks like it used to be a very good hostel. I don't know about the past, but the present is a really different thing. The hostel wasn't particularly clean, rooms were very unattractive. Common area was not a meeting place, but a working place for students living...

My experience at pathfinder was really just a bad time. First of all I would like to say that the staff were friendly and spoke pretty good English. Unluckily this is where the pros finish. I only spent one night at pathfinder but that was too long. The building was old, dirty and cold. Various locations around the building smelt...

We stayed in a double room with a private bathroom during our stay. The room was large, cold and dirty. The room also seemed to be being used for storage of broken lamps and unwanted furniture. The walls were dirty and stained, and our bed was large and very hard. The bathroom was awful, a shower that couldn't supply proper...

Go if your young. Otherwise standards are pretty low, cleanliness, shower is right above the toilet in double rooms, frantic activities of hippies, walls covered in infantile graffiti and drawings, bar covered in hippie cloths. Expensive bar too. One tea, 25kwai? thats dinner for two on the street with baozi.

I stayed here with a friend whist the school I was working at in Guangzhou was on Christmas holidays. We were at the hostel for 3 nights and I must say it is one of the better hostels I have stayed in. There is a really nice and relaxed atmosphere there which I think is helped by the staff encouraging...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. We were only here for about 2 nights in June 2012, but we really enjoyed it. We chose a room with double bed and private bathroom. Our room was "fairly clean" ... not the cleanest hostel we stayed at during our travels around China, but it was pretty good. The beds were...

The only weakness is the hot water in...
