We stayed in the sister hostel, the inn. This was our first hostel experience in china and we couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised! We really liked this place and enjoyed the free dumpling party. We did a huge washing for 51rmb which arrrived the next afternoon to our room clean and dry, though it did smell smokey. We were on the third floor where the Internet was loathsome so all skypeing and such had to take place in the bar below. The bar was great, Very social atmosphere and friendly staff, I even watched a movie with other travellers as we waited for our sleeper train. We liked the food, especially the dumplings (20rmb) which we had for breakfast! Our room was nice, wee like everywhere else in china but it had lots of storage space, a desk etc and even a tv if you wanted. The only complaint would be that it was quite chilly. The bathroom was a wet room which was a little weird and seemed to take all day to clear but otherwise top class. We'd recommend it.
