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!

Okay, the location is not the best in Chongqing. But you can go to all the important places easily by bus. But in all the other points this hostel is great! They helped me to find everything, arranged some nice trips, they offer nice food (try the beef pizza!) to reasonable prices and the rooms and hostel itself is very... More

We stayed 2 nights in a double room. The hostel was easy to find, as we came off a cruise and it is right by the docks. The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. It is clear the rooms and areas have been recently renovated. The staff was great. The food and drink was reasonably priced and tasty. However, the... More

We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights at the start of october. The hostel itself is very good but Chongqing as a whole is a building site and the hostel feels a little cut off from the parts of the city that have already been developed. There is a bridge that is underconstruction next to the hostel at the... More

i hate it when hostels rest on the laurels of being recommended by lonely planet. the subsequent steady stream of clientele gives them room to slack off, as is the case here. pros: - there's a view of the yangzte river from the lounge area. cons: - as people have said here, lots of construction/demolition going on immediately surrounding the...

This hostel was perfectly adequate, nice enough bar/lounge area. The downside is the location, it is by a bridge that is in the process of construction (and apparently has been for years), so is a bit noisy. The area seems semi industrial.Also there are no shops nearby. We did a tour to the Dazu caves with the hostel, the caves... More

We stayed in ChongQing for a couple of nights and think this place was one of the best hostels we stayed in on our 7 month tour of Asia (South Korea, China, India and SE Asia). We stayed in a 6 bed dorm which had excellent large bunk beds along each wall. None of your shaky metal pole bunks either;... More
