This centrally located, clean hostel is ran by a friendly, English speaking staff. The beds are the softest you will find in China and having a private bathroom per dorm was perfect. The bar that is located in the hostel offers good, though pricey, food and is an extra asset to the good vibe that can be felt throughout the... More

The first day, I ordered eggs benedict, it was quick and delicious. The second day, it took them over an hour, and they made food for about 15 other people first while I was waiting, and when they brought it out, it was rushed and disgusting. I think they forgot my order, and did not want to admit it. It... More

We arrived late - well over midnight - but the reception was open late and the staff friendly. Good budget option accomodation - a hostel more than a hotel - so the rooms are basic and not the most appealing, but the location is good (close to metro - on the line to the trainstation for the high-speed-trains - and...

This great little find housed 6 of our group in the one room with a private bathroom. Towels are an extra cost however we were given ours free. Friendly staff with a good wifi connection. On the ground floor of the hostel is a bar/club and a Jamaica Blue Cafe. Prices are not overly cheap but a great feed. Approx... More

I like the food served at the travellers bar here, and the coffee is pretty good. However, I felt the whole vibe of the place was a little "down", as the lighting was very dim, and probably cause it is approaching winter. Walking down the alleyways, there is a strange smell and loud construction noise on the first night I... More

this hostel is very nice and central, the staff are inconstant in helpfulness but overall ok. The rooms are fine and clean with the exception of the shower but they supply shower slippers. There in no elevator so if you are on the top floor it is a bit of a hike. Was wonderful to have Jamaica Blue Coffee shop... More

Hantang is a great guesthouse, with extremely soft beds, good food, better cappuccino and an overall good vibe. Rooms are spacious with large clean beds, TV, a small desk and private bathroom. The bathroom is nice as well, with a good shower and toilet, all very clean. The only downside is the noise. Of course, it's the guests that make... More

The rooms are a reasonable size and are clean. The staff were very helpful and there was alway someone available. The street is not as clean, but is what you would expect from a back street in China. It is well located for sights. I would recommend staying there if you are in a budget as the staff were exceptional.

This Hostel had a lot of positives. Centrally located - within 5 minutes walk from the subway - also very close to the Bell & Drum Tower and the Muslim Quarters and an easy walk to the Ancient City Wall - this Hostel is situated in a small alley lined with local people selling their fruit and vegies + dumplings...
