We stayed 2 nights at Nanjing at this hostel. The staff are definitely the highlight! When we couldn't find the hostel we called them and they walked the street over where we were and took us to the hostel. They also gave us free towels and showed us on the map all the attractions and good places to eat in... More

Good location (if the tourisitc area of town is what you want). 15 min walk from the nearest subway station but the hostel provided excellent directions for getting there when I booked so it was no problem. The dorm room was relatively small but clean, as were the toilets and showers.

We spent two nights in this hostel in a private room. It has a good situation in a cute/touristic area of the city. The bad point is that it is almost 15minutes walk from the closest subway station, so quite far. Coming from the train station by subway, it took us around 35-40minutes to arrive to the hostel.

We found this YHA difficult to find. The taxi driver said he knew it and took us to 2 other YHAs before we found the right place. The young girl (at the desk) had to run out to meet us on the roadway as it is located in a mall. The 6 bed-dorm was EXTREMELY small. Lucky our family of... More

It's a cheap bed. Little love has gone into the place. It's a cold building with a faint smell of stinky Tofu from the nearby street stalls. Its in a tourist area of town. I did however find that one could quickly find good street food nearby. It's a little far from the nearest Metro stop (15 minutes walk). There... More

Old name but a new location for this hostel and most of the staff have changed according to one of the new owners. Very friendly and helpful people work there now. The hostel is in an excellent location in the Fuzimaio area of the city. It is on Gourmet Street and at night this is a quiet area so you... More

Toilet is a little bit old but still good. It was Chinese New Year (end of jan-feb) in 2010 that time, and it was really busy, although it was great because it's close to where the festival is. The staff is very friendly, very helpful with destinations, bus to take, routes and everything. They even have a cute tri-color cat.

I stayed one night at this youth hostel in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, China. The Good: First, I arrived at around midnight, after catching a late train from Suzhou, China. The hostel staff were adequately helpful, but not overly so nor enthusiastic. Then, the dorm room (sleeping 8) itself was furnished with metal-framed beds (as a comparison, other hostels I stayed...

The whole hostel is not very clean, but worst: we had BEDBUGS. My boyfriend was bitten all over his body! The stuff was not really impressed and i don´t know,... More
