We stayed in a double private en suite room for two nights in May. The room was the worst we had in China- it was not warm or enticing by any stretch of the imagination and I did not feel relaxed or comfortable in the room whatsoever.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hostel's email had some kind of problem and our emails before we arrived had reached some fraudster who was trying to take money from us in payment of the room. Wada intervened quickly and helped us in this regard. They were also very accommodating when we changed our reservation last minute and when the shower head broke off in our room they sorted a replacement immediately.
We went on the hostel's trip to the rice terraces which was very well organised and great value for money- as far as we were aware the driver was going to drop us off and pick us up a few hours later- he in fact led us on our hike/walk to the best scenic spots and his knowledge and guidance added to what was an incredible experience.
This hostel is extremely sociable and you will meet lots of other travellers. We travelled as a couple and weren't really looking for a lively/rowdy hostel to stay in so I don't think Wada was entirely suitable for us, although I'm sure it is more than ideal for some, especially if you are travelling alone and looking to meet others.
