“Great rooms but staff don't speak English”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012 via mobile

We took a bit of a gamble with this hostel as most reviews were written in Chinese. It was better than expected for the money. The room was spacious and comfortable. The staff don't speak hardly any English though so not very helpful with directions or advice. We asked how much laundry was which was a hassle because they couldn't understand us so they had to call someone and we tried to explain over the phone. In the end it cost an absolute fortune so I wouldn't recommend it. The only English channel of TV was China News channel and the location is not ideal but only 10 mins walk from the metro. Overall for the price of the room we were happy.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2009

If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay without any frills... this is the place. We had a very comfortable stay here and the staff is courteous and helpful. The language problems exists but that is everywhere in China so be ready to use sign language to explain what you want but once they understand they are prompt and eager to please.

Also serves a decent breakfast.
