Before I start I will say my partner and I are 25 and 23 and have stayed in a lot of hostels in Australia and Asia in the past 14 months whilst travelling so we are not picky or judgemental.
Positives are 8 bed dorm room was great. Comfy beds, great shower and toilet facilities.
Negatives is the hostel charge extra for everything. I am travelling on a budget yet its 100RMB deposit per room key. Towels are 30RMB deposit. Extra butter and jam for breakfast is 2RMB. Free hotpot night on a Thursday is in fact not free its 15RMB per person.
Hostel is extremely expensive for food and drinks considering your in China. Example, hostel beer is 20/30RMB yet convenience store 10 paces away has large bottles for 2.5RMB. However, this may be to do with the fact that a coffee chain is based in the hostel.
Wi-Fi not great struggled using it in rooms and even sometimes in the lobby area.
Considering all other hostels we have stayed in over past year, this has zero traveller spirit or atmosphere. Think they are trying to be a hotel/B'n'B rather than a hostel and it tells.
Special note to Abby behind reception who came with us to China Unicom store and sorted us with Chinese SIM cards, would have been impossible task otherwise.
All in all, if I was booking again as a traveller I would choose elsewhere!!!
