When I stayed here the hostel was very dirty, there were spills on the tables that were not cleaned up for the duration of my stay (3 days). Toilets were horrendously smelly, and showers dirty. Access to the hostel is not ideal either, being located further away from the city centre than most hostels, and difficult to find. The main... More

If you are after a five star hotel then this place is not for you. However if you want clean (but basic) rooms, friendly staff, good location and excellent travel advice then this is the place for you. We paid less than NZ$20 for a budget twin room with shared bathroom which was all we wanted for one night after... More

I really like this hostel! The directions given were great except when coming out of metro exit D and see Wanda mall, go the opposite way on the same side of street. Do not walk towards mall. They all spoke pretty perfect English. Very helpful with bus and metro info even when we were trying to public transport to places... More

We lived in the four people dorm for one night. Feel exactly like home there. Each bed is equipped with its own curtain and bedside lamp. Protect your privacy and let you enjoy your space :p Bed size is okay for Asian people but may be a little bit small for westerner . The shared bathrooms and toilet is clean... More

Great friendly staff, however they can very busy when many other travellers bombard them with many many questions everyday. 1 of the staff even waited for me to reach (2am) as mine was the last flight into Chengdu. Rooms are clean, bed was reasonably comfortable with blanket and individual curtains and it has an individual charging point and light. Showers... More

They offer trips to Tibet. For sure one of the cheapest if you are looking for the basics, but do not forget that you still have to pay all your accomodations, entrance fees and transportation from trainstation or airport and transportation in Lhasa. They want to be a professional tour Company, but they are not! We booked our tibet tour... More

Not many other places to stay. Nice place with hot water all the time. Great price and good value food to match. They could do with another girls bathroom on the 3rd floor to match the boys 4! Its also a shame that all smoking is done on the 3rd floor courtyard because as two non smokers our room was... More

The hostel is run by a group who also owns lazy bone and Flipflop hostel. This one is the original one. When I stepped in the staff was very welcoming and able to recommend many local ways to explore the city. They could easily be the best league of staff you couldn't wish better in most hostels. I only have... More
