Yes, there are better hostels out there. But as the previous review mentions, this place does the job. Staff is great, especially at the front desk. Rooms are mediocre and the shared ones could be better. At the end of the day, this is sort of the experience you should be expecting when you are paying ¥50 a night. A... More

As I say in the title, this place do the job. Nothing to complain at all, rooms are basic but clean, it is located in the walking district just beside the main tourist street. The only down side is that it doesn't feel like a youth hostel, probably because of the restaurant/common room. Yet, I would totally recommend.

The hostel is good but for their restaurant , they don't have more than 30% of their menu available. I tried it for dinner and for breakfast. Avoid it. For the hostel: this is well located, the rooms are not expensive, some rooms have a view on the lake

I was absolutely appalled by this place. I've stayed in a lot of hostels around China, for a lot let money, but this was disgusting. I booked a twin room at quite a high price and was very upset to be given a room that was filthy and mouldy. The air in the room was fetid, the walls were covered... More

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
