There are 2 different locations for this hostel. I stayed in the main building where the dorms are. The ensuites that house more people are in another building.
This review is for the dorm. I stayed for a week.
Location: Fantastic location, minutes to XiMenDing. I walked around XiMenDing (for food, bookstore, shopping, bubble tea) so many times i felt like XiMenDing was the backyard. 5min walk to metro station. Metro station is well-connected to other lines. 3 convenience stores along the street, good for midnight snacks.
Rooms: Not in the best conditions (screeching bunk beds, thin mattress) with no sound-proofing between rooms. Dorm are near to windows, expect traffic noise. I got used to it by sleeping with music/earphones. Bedsheets are changed after every guest moved out.
Facilities: Free use of common computers within restricted time. No problem with the computers & free wifi. I could stream drama series & youtube songs with my iPhone.
Staff & Service: Friendly if you are friendly to them. Sounds kindly basic, but you will be amazed. I didn't have any problem with all 3 owners.
Value: Good depends on what is your priority
