I stayed at this hostel with a couple of friends last Summer on an all-too-brief visit to Hangzhou. The hostel is quite difficult to spot from the road, but it's not too difficult to find. The downstairs is a lovely and relaxed lounge, with spirits kept high by the beautiful pair of dogs. Our dorm room was very comfortable and... More

Overall average hostel. Rooms ok hostel standard except that the windows could not close/lock due to missing handle. Note that the pictures of the rooms on the website are misleading, the rooms are not new anymore. Prepare to wake up early, because of the two neighbouring schools playing very loud music every morning from 7.30 to about 8.30 just outside the windows... More

The only good thing about this hostel is it's location, you can literally just cross the street and you are on the west lake and there's a bus station right in front that will take to all the touristy spots. The room was so small, you could fit a bed in there and that's it, the bathroom as well a... More

Took a cab to the hostel upon arrival at the train station and the cab driver did not where it is. Lucky thing that I did my research prior to the trip and I manage to direct the driver to... More

I stayed here for two night in their single room, which was basic but adequate and ensuite. Food both Western and Chinese downstairs, cheap beer, lounge/bar to hang around in. Wifi and computer terminals to use. These guys spoke great English, were very helpful and knew the types of things travellers need. Location is a little out of the way... More

This hostel is great, especially considering it's supposed to be a youth hostel, and one often doesn't associate that concept with nice things. The pros are the rooms, the staff, and the food. We had a double room with a private room and it was basic but exactly what we needed and wanted. The staff was friendly and gave good... More

I stayed at Westlake Youth Hostel for 2 nights and it was a good rest for me after a hectic tour in Shanghai. The hostel is situated just a 5 minutes walk from Xihu (Westlake). The staff were helpful in assisting me to book a tour and giving directions to various places. I didn't eat in and chose to walk... More
