We've been in China for five weeks now, and stayed in six different hostels. Most of the recommended by Lonely Planet and they were really good.
But this place is by far the worst experience. They have got new owners, apparently, so it's not the Singaporean couple any longer.
Room was very small with fungus on the walls. No soap on bathroom. The bar closes early and there is a big sign in the bar about the rules of the place (no fighting, no offensive manners etc.). Also a sign in the room of behavioral regulations (vomit in bed charged 100 rnb) - why is al this necessary?
But the worst thing, which made us furious, was the sign in the bar telling that we could get a free drink for rating them 100% on Tripadvisor. This simply just undermines the entire concept of Tripadvisor.
The staff was arrogant and the atmosphere was horrible. Such a shame, since we were really looking forward to this place.
