Incredible hostel and by far the best one we went to in China. The staff are INCREDIBLE!! So friendly and funny- always joking and messing around. They are extremely helpful as well. The food is also great and we ate there most of the time. Both western and Chinese food was incredible- the s&s pork in particular was amazing!!

Amazing ambiance, everyone is between 20-30 years old. The staff speaks perfect english. The food is really good! They have a lot of tours organized with you can book (rice terraces,... More

The hostel is beautiful , well- decorated and most importantly- very social! many... More

The staff were super friendly and spoke flawless English. Cozy ambiance, cheap beer, knowledgeable staff, solid bunk bed. They were eager to please and openly asked for a positive full star reviews, and they deserved it.

By far, my favorite hostel I've stumbled across in China. Hubbed out of here for 4 days to see rice terraces, take a river cruise, and climb some mountains. Staff is great! Great common areas to meet people from all around the world. Great food and bar. Close to train station and major bus routes.

I've been backpacking around Asia now for over 6 months and this is by far the best hostel I've stayed in!! Rad (and clean) facilities and the girls are amazing - honestly, they're so helpful. Not to mention all the little freebies (laundry, towels, DUMPLING PARTIES). Thank you so much for everything over my two stays, you girls ROCK! Cheers... More

The girls that run this hostel are so nice and heplful! They learned my name after day 1. The food here is great! They plan activities to meet new people like dumpling nights. I truly enjoyed staying here and would do it again in a heartbeat.

The Wada girls are very helpful and speak great English. The email directions they give you from the train station are easy to follow. The hostel runs many of its own tours with their private driver for guests to join. They host a free dumpling making class every Monday evening and afterwards you eat as many of them as you... More
