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.

I stayed here instead of staying in Hunagshan town as I was climbing the mountain, and I am so glad I did, Huangshan is nowhere near as nice or relaxed as Tunxi or this hostel. The dorm rooms had comfortable beds, clean internal hot showers and sep bathrooms, plus aircon for $50 Yuan a night. There is wifi, internal cafe/bar... More

I won't say anything new here. This is an excellent hostel, and indeed, the restaurant across, Meishi Renjia, is a great place to eat (you won't find such quality of cooking, variety of choices or such low prices later, on the mountain). We spent one night in a twin room with ensuite at a discount (member) price Y117. The room... More

My spouse and I spend 4 nights at the Huangshan Old Street Youth Hostel in September 2011. We had booked a twin bedroom with ensuite bathroom (although that was a mistake, since we really wanted one bed for both, so we should have gotten a double room with ensuite). What we loved most of all were the super-helpful and super-competent... More

We used Old Street Hostel as a base to visit the Huizhou Villages and Huang Shan. We stayed four nights in a twin room with ensuite. The hostel is conveniently located at the archway end of Lao Jie (Old Street). It's easy to find and within walking distance to many restaurants, snack stores and shops. A taxi from the train...

This hostel's location is excellent - very easy to find. It's right behind the Laojie (Old Street) stone archway, opposite a popular fine Chinese restaurant. Though it's on a busy pedestrian street, it's not noisy at all when you're in your room. The private ensuite rooms are beautifully decorated with oriental furnishings (unlike most other spartan-looking hostels). The Hostel reception... More
