I have to agree with all the reviews I have read on this hostel. Great location, great rooms, amazing beds, good food and excellent staff ...
We stayed here three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We arrived at 8am after an overnight train from Pingyao and we were in our room by 8.30am! We were on the 3rd floor which did take some climbing with cases as there is no lift.
The room was spacious and clean and the beds were really comfortable
Modern bathroom with an excellent shower.
Wifi was mainly okay, but sometimes a bit weak.
There is a water cooler/heater in the corridor, which takes some working out, but works fine.
We had laundry done (10 yuan per kilo - sun dried)
There is a good snack menu available in the hostel and local restaurants nearby
(The supermarket opposite sells cold Hans beer for just 2.5 Yuan!)
We could hear music in our room from about 9pm for an hour or so, but not too intrusive.
Easy walking distance from the Bell Tower and Muslim Quarter ...
We booked our trip to the Terracotta Soldiers through the hostel which included a free beer when we got back!
They also run an evening trip to the Big Goose Pagoda which is free (just pay your bus fare of 2 yuan). Whilst there, our guide took us to a sister restaurant where we were treated to free beer!
We then walked to the pagoda to watch the 20 minute 'fountain and light' display.
Overall an excellent stay in an excellent hostel which I would recommend to anyone.
