Firstly the hostel is a bit hard to find in an alley, quite away from the main square. I'm quite disappointed that even though it's part of the Hostelling International group, the place is quite rundown. The wifi is very weak in the room itself, and can only really be properly used in the lobby.
The layout of the hostel is messy, where there are no lights at the staircases, so climbing up in pitch-black darkness to get to your rooms on the upper floors is a bit dangerous. The room is sparsely furnished.. with a thin mattress, it's not the most comfortable for sleeping.
The toilet is mostly clean but doesn't look very inviting, not to mention that there's a stench coming from the other toilet when climbing up to the 2nd floor.
The only redeeming quality is that it's cheap at RMB35 a night.
