This is a very funky and modern hostel that used to be a paper factory . The dormitories are cheap and even cheaper if you book in advance. It's in a good location and the staff are very helpful. They also sell postcard and stamps and there is a relaxing cafe.

The reception / cafe area is very trendy, with a young and vibrant feeling. We had a large, clean and comfortable twin room with plenty of personality and large windows. The air-conditioning worked well and the bathroom / shower was also very good. Good value for money at the higher end of the "budget" hotels. Would definitely go again!

This is a fancy hostel, sure if you want to share a dorm it is only 50rmb a night, but rooms do go up-to 300rmb, and they really are nice! Located centrally it isn't a bad place to stay, no smoking throughout, travel service, cafe, bar, and internet with a VPN what more could you want in the land of... More

We spent 2 nights in double room with bath. Room was acceptable. Clean and as you would expect for the price. Staff very helpful with good English skills. They helped book early morning taxi to airport, Sichuan Opera tickets, hotpot recommendation. The attached restaurant was good for snacks and drinks. Everyone was very friendly!

Appreciate a well-heated room in chilly February. Fairly basic bathroom and bedroom facilities (towels not new or fluffy if that's important to you) but overall decently put together. Street has a lot of places to go in the evening. Not too noisy late at night though. Good tasty breakfast choices and proper Italian espresso (not to be sniffed at in... More

We paid good money for a cheap hostel because we thought it would be a warm and charming experience as opposed to staying in a cheaper but better business hotel. Regretfully, it was a terrible experience. Extremely basic with tatty towels, bedding, blinds, etc. Service was bad. I don't know what happened to the staff that the reviews praised about...the...

We stayed in a 4-bed dormitory for a couple of nights. The room, located on the ground floor, was a bit damp but away from the noise of the Common area. It had a curtain around each bed and a readind lamp, which was really nice. We had a good breakfast at the restaurant next to the hostel, which was... More

We stayed here for a week and with the yha card it cheap (if you don't have one get one at reception) It's a really funky place to stay. The staff are very helpful also. They do a free meal once a week which is a good way to meet people. The place is clean Enjoy

We stayed here for 5 nights in a double room. The building itself is interesting, believe it was a brickworks before. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. There is a sofa area downstairs with a DVD library and an area to watch films, a courtyard garden outside to sit in with a free pool table and a cafe area that... More

Fantastic hostel !!! Staff were all excellent. Room was modern, clean, big, airy and bright. Common areas help create a real hostel atmosphere. Excellent value for money, even had one local beer or Coke included in the price. Area around the hostel is gentrifying with plenty of bars and restaurants mixed in with a few old local places. Would recommend.
