It took us almost one hour to find this hostel. We needed some help to get there cause there were no signs. During the process of checking in the unfriendly staff woman started to talk to another guest cause she spoke Chinese. So we had to wait about 10 minutes and she didn't care about us! Then it was our turn again and the Chinese woman came back and asked something while I was talking to the staff woman. I was like excuse me can you please wait but they both didn't care! And after all this mess the staff woman said they have no light and water until 7pm every day which you couldn't read in the booking portals for sure! Is this unbelievable or not?! Then we asked for a discount cause we can't wait for simple things like electricity and water until 7pm - you can be sweaty at noon and the mobile phone can run out of charge in the morning...

Firstly the hostel is a bit hard to find in an alley, quite away from the main square. I'm quite disappointed that even though it's part of the Hostelling International group, the place is quite rundown. The wifi is very weak in the room itself, and can only really be properly used in the lobby.

The layout of the hostel is messy, where there are no lights at the staircases, so climbing up in pitch-black darkness to get to your rooms on the upper floors is a bit dangerous. The room is sparsely furnished.. with a thin mattress, it's not the most comfortable for sleeping.

The toilet is mostly clean but doesn't look very inviting, not to mention that there's a stench coming from the other toilet when climbing up to the 2nd floor.

The only redeeming quality is that it's cheap at RMB35 a night.

Thank CactusAvenue
