I can't tell about the dorm, but our private room was in the horrible condition. It was dirty, without any facilities and very cold. It had AC, but it didn't help. At night we could hear our neighbors returning from some clubs or parties. They have a cafe inside, the food is ok, and relatively cheap, also they sell some... More

I'm not highly into hostels but this was pretty good as, though I would have preferred the rooms and shower / toilet area to be cleaned a little more. However for a short stay, it's cheap, in a great location, and the wifi works well.

Location is good, as it is by the Confucian Temple Area, with lots of shops and restaurant. However, the subway station isn't THAT close. Staff was really friendly and helped me with a lot of information. The downside in my opinion was the cleanliness, not good at all.

Pros: The location is really good right near the Confucius temple and the action in the evening. WiFi is pretty decent and it is clean. Staff are friendly enough and the price is right. Walking distance to metro and Power Point for each bed Cons: This is the squeakiest, most rickety bunk bed I've had in China so far. The... More

This hostel is located very conveniently: 10 minutes from metro stop Fu Zi Miao (line 3) and 15 minutes from San Shan Jie (line 1). It has good shower facilities (over 10 cubicles) and a nice atmosphere. You can even sit on their cosy (but small) rooftop terrace. The wifi also is good quality and there is a big seating... More

No bad location in southern Old Nanjing. Comfortable enough dorm. That's the positives. This is a weirdly run business enterprise even by Chinese standards. To get to the minkit skankit toilets (which, contrary to other reports, are not swabbed out once a month: once every three days the effluent is washed onto the washroom floor) one has to waltz barefoot,...

We got a private room for one night. The bathroom didn't have soap nor did it have any towels. The toilet paper lasted one use since they provided so little. The front desk wasn't foreigner friendly. When we asked how to get to places they were very vague and reluctant to help. I wouldn't recommend staying here. Oh also, we... More

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.
