I booked for 2 rooms with separate beds. However , when I arrived I was informed that the hostel is under renovation and they only have single large bed for us. I wasn't happy initially cos they should have told me earlier. Luckily, we are all small in sizes so we wouldn't mind to stay just for a night. The... More

If I could give this hostel zero stars I would. The staff were unfriendly and there was no restaurant or common area to sit. The heating didn't work in the dorm room and the key stopped working in the middle of the night so we had to leave the door open all night. The light was so dim that you... More

I enjoyed it so much staying in a historic building after all the new and modern in Shanghai. This was my first hostel stay after... More

If I were ever to go back to this hostel it would only be because the staff were friendly and is on the coolest street in Suzhou. The room, a second floor, stank of cigarette smoke and the bathroom drain. There were mosquitoes, but there was a electric bug repellant in the drawer. The bed was comfortable and so were... More

Excellent. Excellent location. Excellent value. Very comfortable. Much more than I expected! Friendly and helpful staff. Gorgeous building. Would love to go back just to hang about for a few days. Good coffee just across the canal.

we extended one more night here in Suzhou, since we found it not just the private gardens are worth visiting in Suzhou, which is not a big city though, taking a stroll along side the river is highly recommended, also, there are several cafe and bars near the hostel, so it's good for a relaxing vacation in this city

After having stayed in several hostels for 7 weeks during our travel allover China, Mingtown Youth Hostel was a major disappointment and one of the very few hostels we would not really recommend. Pro's and con's in short: + good location along the canal on Pinjiang Road + nice building, rooms with old wooden furniture showing some personality - 145... More

The hostel is perfectly located on a pedestrainised canalside with a w/e/night market in the historical district very popular with chinese tourists, lots of teashops and souvenir shops. It is very picturesque and a popular setting for wedding photos. It is within easy flat walking distance of the Suzhou Museum, Humble Administrator''s Garden, Master of the Nets Garden, Couple's Retreat... More

This hostel is located on one of the prettiest roads in Suzhou. Pingjiang road really reminds you of old times. There are plenty of cafes and bars on the street to waste your time at, and plenty of vendors selling everything you can imagine. There are people who set up games too. You can sit and have drink near the... More
