This hostel is located inside a tea shop on a very pretty street in the town of Tunxi. You enter through the tea shop and at the very end is the reception. The hostel was surprisingly clean and pleasant. It was inexpensive, and we we got a double room with private bathroom. The staff was friendly.

My husband and I stayed here for one night on New Years Eve, before we headed up the mountain the following day. Even though we checked in at 11pm, they were waiting for us and even had a small cake for my husband's birthday! The staff spoke English, and they were able to answer all of our questions about the... More

We had a great stay at this IYH on old street. In the back of a tea shop----make sure you know that so when the taxi driver lets you off late at night you can locate it. Great staff with English and super helpful with plans for the area both for sightseeing as well as directing us to help for... More

we (3 friends from Israel) stayed at the hostel after hiking in the yellow mountain. The hostel is located right at the entrance to the Tunxi old street, which is a sight for itself, both at night and during the day. The staff was very helpful, spoke in English fluently and even picked us up when we couldn't find the... More

We stayed here for one night before heading to Huangshan. The location is great, right on busy end of old street with lots of things to see and eat, although a bit touristy. The room was big and clean, bathroom had no toiletries at all and we had some issues with the shower draining but other than that it was... More

The huge plus point for this hostel is its location, which is right smack at the beginning (or end) of the charming Old Street in Tunxi. The hostel is located at the back of a tea shop, but it is not hard to find. Our room was clean and spacious, so is the bathroom. However, it was a bit dim... More

Good location. Nice views from the window. Very nice old street. Pleasant to walk on it day and night. The staff is friendly. Cheap Excurtion. We went on a tour of two Chinese villages. Everything was organized perfectly, but the guide spoke only Chinese. But it was not anything bad, because we had a guidebook.

The staff at this hostel can help out with many local options, including booking buses and trains for your onward travel. I stayed in a triple room with really comfortable beds - what a bonus. The room was clean with a TV and kettle. Bathroom had towels and soap. We were on the 2nd floor right near the bar and... More

The staff here were so helpful. They booked us our bus to the Huangshan mountain, a night's stay at a discount price in a hotel on the mountain, and our coach back to Shanghai. This included a ride from the hostel to where the coach departs which was excellent and made our trip to the area much easier. Staff spoke... More

Simply, this place is awesome. Nice price and kind staff, wonderful location. Unfortunately, There are no WiFi or Ethernet for rooms, but are WiFi just for lobby and restaurant. However every other stuffs are just wonderful. If you want to visit Tunxi, here is an answer for stay.
