We stayed in this hostel twice - in December 2007 and June 2008 - and had a very good experience both times. The common areas are clean, comfortable and have a homey feel. The ensuite double rooms are really nice - the bathroom seemed almost new. As with other hostels in China, there is free internet (wifi and computer), laundry facilities, hot water to make your own coffee or tea, area to watch DVDs, etc. A good mixture of people staying there and the lounge area is conducive to meeting other travelers.
