I don't normally take the time to write bad reviews, but I strongly feel like there are much better places to stay. I understand that bad experiences are often an anomaly, so I'll attempt to state facts and leave out subjectiveness. I arrived in Chongqing after a delayed flight. I managed to get to the hostel after the taxi driver... More

We stayed here several times three years ago and it was great, however we returned recently and it was absolutely awful. The staff were rude and unhelpful, the manager was not just actively unhelpful but deliberately rude and racist against several of our party. The accommodation was poor and overcharged. Our whole experience was not just poor but actively dreadful.... More

I really liked this hostel, the bed was incredibly comfortable with nice clean soft bedding. Our room was a twin and was fairly spacious. The common room has a really good atmosphere and you can get chatting to other people there easily. It is very close to the wharf if you are getting on or off a river cruise. If... More

Probably the best feature of this hostel is their friendly and helpful staff. Rooms and dorms aren't huge, but nicely decorated. Their cafe/restaurant has a little terrace with river/bridge construction site view, and really nice, cheap chinese and western dishes. And beer :) The hostel lies at the bottom of very long stairs, so prepare to do some climbing on... More

Yangtze River Hostel We arrived late from Jiuzhaigou, having taken the airport shuttle to Shangqingsi (the last stop) for 15 Yuan. Two taxi drivers turned us away when we brandished the address to the hostel (in English and Chinese), we caught the last one by just getting in the car before we told him where we wanted to go. It's... More

I stayed at this place for a couple of nights during a recent trip to Chongqing. Overall, it's a pretty nice place that's kept clean and tidy. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm which was comfortable and had its own toilet, the shower room was shared with other guests. The lobby/bar is a nice place to relax with a... More

Expect charming staff, with clean, yet somewhat small (tiny!) rooms. Location is right on the waterfront, however don't expect crystal blue water... This is China remember! A 15 minute walk up a series of stairs to get to the town centre. Good facilities; free pool table, free computers, nice cinema room and lots of seating in the bar area

A little hard to find and it is under the ORANGE bridge not yellow. The beds were comfy enough and the staff were friendly. The bedrooms were clean were it counted (the beds) but in other places like under the bed were pretty awful. The hostel also helped us to book a 4 day cruise which was great as well.... More

It is a little hard to find but well worth the effort. There was a lot of construction going on around the Hostel when we were there (6 March) but that did not affect our stay. We arrived by train and walked to the Hostel, which was downhill all the way. The Hostel is located on the river below the... More

A nice basic hostel in Chongqing. We tried both single room and a dorm while our visits in Chongqing and either way the accommodation was ok. Staff was friendly and helpful and the kitchen.. That was awesome!
