The ambiance was so cute. All the decoration was made by hand and most of the workers besides being so friendly speak English. Shin, his manager was a really interesting, kind man who gave us conversation during the first night after explaining us the most interesting spots of Harbin. What's more, they have a notebook in English with important information... More

Like a Chinese hostel, you shouldn´t expect breakfast - or a "party environment". But the common area is pretty lively during Harbin high season (winter) - with 90% Chinese guests. Staff is great and very open to foreigners. There are items to buy to protect yourself from the cold, you can also purchase tickets for attractions (they even have shuttle... More

Honestly I must say it's my first hostel stay in China, so I just can compare to my South East Asia experiences. The hostel standard is ok, the lobby is really comfortable, drinks are cheap, they sell different needs for Ice festival (gloves, heat pads, etc.) and the reception speaks English very well. The dorms are basic and clean. Unfortunately... More

After 45 hours standing on trains all the way across northern China from Xinjiang (you'd think late November there'd be seats left: mei you, mei you, lo lo lo - take that as a no then) this hostel in the warm central Russified heart of Harbin's minus-double-figure-below is a place I am biased about already. Chill in a comfy way,... More

bathroom and toilet smell bad, bathroom can use only 3 room in each floor and male and female don't separate, bed very hard but it's ok if stay only 1 or 2 day and location is good not far from walking street.

We left the Harbin Russia International Youth Hostel with a bad taste in our mouths and really disgusted at all aspects to book here at Kazy and could not be happier that we came.

Apparently around about September 2013 they moved from their old building, the red and white one, to a new place. This new building, 27 tongjiang street, was very difficult to find, as there is no sign saying Kazy, not in English anyway. There is a nice common area with wifi, and lots of services available. However, my dorm room was... More

Overall, we had a great stay at Kazy's hostel. The venue, a converted old synagogue is very atmospheric, and the living room / reading room are great for meeting people. We stayed here during last year's Chinese New Year and had an amazing dumpling party with (obviously) dumplings, beers and fireworks, lots of fun! The downside: the rooms are incredibly... More

Converted synagogue that is a bit dilapidated. Great venue, close to amenities, easy to get taxi and the building is amazing. Unfortunately we were not staying in the actual synagogue, but a little annex located next door. Didnt actually tell us that when we booked. The room was old, tatty, mouldy, not too warm with an ensuite that had limited... More

“If you have 4 people go the Room with the Mezzanine floor. Plenty of space and although the mattresses suck you will appreciate the space for your 8 layers of jackets and stuff. Ensuite is tiny but showers are HOT and great. BYO food, HEAPS of ways to cook and socialise in the kitchen. Drinking your own grog in the kitchen also seems totally fine :) (Aussies, we love to find a good cheap way to drink :P )”
