I've been in China for over a year and the staff at this hostel were, by far, the friendliest, most helpful staff I have come across. They were warm, welcoming, and treated us like old returning friends rather than customers. The place itself is clean, quiet and beautifully decorated. The room was functioning and clean. The only complaint I have... More

Stayed here with 2 friends for a night while visiting the West Lake. The high point for us was the awesome staff they had. They all spoke pretty great English, were extremely friendly, and tried to help us whenever they could. I would practically stay here for the staff alone. The hostel itself is pretty nice, but I wouldn't say... More

The first thing to say is that all the basics are taken care of. It's clean, it's safe, and everything worked. To add to this, the environment is friendly and there's a cosy atmosphere. I was only there for a short time but they were incredibly accommodating - helping me plan what I wanted to do and helping me arrange... More

This is my favorite hostel in China. The rooms and facilities were clean and there was a good atmosphere. The staff is extreme friendly. The location is not far from West Lake and the nice green hills are right behind the hostel. They rent bikes, helped plan my day trips and helped me book the train ticket. Great time!!

I stayed in January 2014. It was around $30 for a room for myself and I was impressed with the quality of the rooms and service. I was able to rent a bike after putting down a deposit which was returned in full. The staff also helped me book a train ticket back to Shanghai and showed me where I... More

Yes it was secluded from downtown but peaceful corner. The staff was so nice! I had checked out, left my luggage with them so i could bike to the downtown market with their rented bike. Came back super sweaty and had to get to the airport very fast. They trew me a towel and said: go wash! They taught me... More

I've stayed at 6 hostels in China and this is my favorite. The location is very close to West Lake and the staff is extremely friendly. They helped plan my day trips and assisted me in buying tickets to Impression West Lake. You can also walk to the show from here. Its an hour walk but the scenery along the... More

I stayed at this hostel almost a week after planning to stay only a night or two. The rooms and facilities are certainly decent, just avoid the rooms downstairs if you can as they aren't quite as good (but still fine). What really sets this hostel apart is the excellent staff. They are so friendly and willing to help with... More

The location is perfect if you want to be within walking distance of the more scenic attractions in the area - the mountains! Transport links into the city are good too, just a short bus ride into the centre. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room I had (private double) was a little small but very clean and...
