The location of the hostel is excellent, just outside is the old town part of Hangzhou. The hostel is a good choice for Hangzhou, overall. Main negative aspect was that my dorms was freezing cold when I arrived (it was around 6°C outside) and it took around 2 days of aircon to get a bearable temperature inside. Also, there's very...

This hostel is located at He Fang street & Nan Song Yu Jie. McDonald's is just 300 m away from the hotel. The hostel is clean and cozy. I stayed here for 3 days and was a pleasant stay. You can get the public transportation & taxis once you walked out of the HeFang street & Nansong Yu Jie.

Great location on a safe and relatively nice quiet street adjacent to busy hefang street. Stayed in a spacious 4bed female dorm which is pleasantly equipped with a clean ensuite toilet! Met many friendly solo travellers although there were more Chinese than foreigners. There's a cafe with good variety within the hostel or you can also try other hipster cafes...

Good Hostel! We are a couple from Norway, and stayed in private room. Room was really nice and had great location. (However it smelled like smoke when we arrived) The reception closed at midnight when we were there. We rented bikes at the hostel for a day, which was fine, but they should check breaks and bells a bit more...

The staff were super friendly. I was sick and the staff checked in on me during the day. We ended up renting bikes and we toured around the lake. The hostel is in a great location, not too far from restaurants, markets and stinky tofu. Thankfully a pharmacy wasn't too far either! It was clean and comfortable. Though I think...

A little hard to find the first time around coming from the train station but overall a great location to explore the city and the lake - everything is within walking or biking distance - they have a few bikes for rent quite cheaply. My single room was small but had a nice clean bathroom and a very comfortable bed...

Very quiet street but yet in the middle of the centre, clean hostel, friendly staff. We took 2 beds in a shared dormitory but had a seperate place for ourselves (mezzanine). Lockers available to store away your backpacks. Airconditioning is doing what it has to do ! Also a nice bar and restaurant next door.

I stayed comfortably in a 4 bedded dorm for around €7 a night. I had a peek in the private doubles and they looked lovely, TV, kettle, nice bed etc. The bathroom for our dorm was good, air con and clean. 4 out of 5 as there's no self serve kitchen, although hot water is available in the common area....

A very good Hostel I stayed at for a weekend. After going through a series of hostels around the world, I have developed a set of expectations, which in my opinion represent a truly great hostel. Hofang Youth Hostel was almost all of them. The staff were mostly friendly and many spoke very good English. They were able to provide...

Stayed here for 3 nights before we head to Shanghai. We booked the 8 beds dorm and the room that we got was 6 beds downstairs and 2 beds upstairs. We are a group of 4 people so all of us got the double decker beds downstairs. The room is clean it is just that the noise where people coming...

“If you want a good night sleep, opt for the private rooms as the dorms are quite noisy with people coming in and out. A lot of snoring too.”

“Rooms in the inner-courtyards are more quite. If you have half day available in Hangzhou, a visit the tea plantations is a must !”

“We stayed at Duplex Double room. The room has stairs to go up to the bed. Stair steps are very small and the stair itself are built narrow up. It is not suitable for old people and small kids, so if you are travelling with your parents or kids, get extra bed (sleep downstairs near the bathroom) or get other room.”
