This was some of the most attentive service and hospitality we received during our stay in China. The staff at Chinese Box were always ready to help and provide any information that was at their disposal (and if they didn't know the answer, they were willing to look for it). We booked a tour to the Matianyu section of The... More

The staff here create a warm environment, and are incredibly helpful. Beautiful rooms, and a common room area that encourages travelers to mingle, with special themed meal nights. An excellent place for a solo traveler.

I would highly recommend this hostel. Nice and clean really friendly staff who are very helpful with all of our questions, thanks Amy! They have heaters in the toilet and the rooms are nice and cosy. It has a very cultural feel about the place. Thank you for a wonderful stay and all your help. We would definitely visit again.

No complaints...Great place to crash for a few nights. The bathrooms are sufficiently clean, the beds are comfortable, the rooms are warm and the subway is close by. Nice people as well. It is nice to have free breakfast in the morning although it doesn't start until 8.
