Mingtown hostel in Hangzhou, the price you pay is to high for what you will get in this hostel. Poor cleaning, very noisy and so unconfortable beds. Restaurant staff not friendly. Be carefull with breakfast, cofee will not be included on trhe set breackfast menu.

I stayed here for the second time and generally happy with it. However, the room at the ground floor is quite run down and no internet connection. You need to go to a room where there's wifi. The one in the 2nd floor is good in terms of wifi and it's newer. It's 20 mins walk to Hefang street and... More

This hostel was great !!! A little difficult to find at first. Rooms are small but perfect for travelers, and cosy. There is a cafe/restaurant in this hostel which is great to relax. There are sofas and plugs to bring your laptop. WiFi very good in the whole place. Food wasn't excellent but is definitely useful ! Staff was great... More

Nice, recently decorated hostel, a 15min walk from the Lake. Hostel rooms are upstairs in a stunning building. Entrance and reception is accessible via a brand new glass extension on the side of the building, which is also the Cafe style communal area. Staff were really friendly and helpful The only weird thing was that the toilet right next to... More

The greatest attraction of Hangzhou is the West Lake, and finding an affordable yet good quality of accommodation located by the lake is quite challenging. Luckily we found this property. Although it's priced slightly higher than other youth hostel we stayed, it's the only room nearest the lake we could afford. The room was basic, but clean. Also clean toilet.... More

This hostel is located right next to the lake which is handy if that's what you are most interested in, however it was a bit of a mission to get to the amazing pedestrian streets and anywhere decent to eat which was a pain. The cafe and bar at the hostel itself was much like food in all the hostels... More

Stayed here for two nights. We had a double room. It was clean and comfortable although there wasn't a door between the bathroom and bedroom just a curtain. Staff were pretty friendly and helped us out but I did feel like they were getting a bit annoyed with me at times. There is a really nice rooftop bar with good... More

In brief: - the restaurant food is the worst thing, avoid it. They are also quite rude - even if it is well located, near the lake, this hostel is overpriced (50 USD, averagely, and it is China) - no wifi and no wire connection, except near the reception desk - they want a huge cash deposit (and if this...
