I stayed there for 3 nights and did not have any problems. The main reason I choose this place was because it was pretty close (about 30 minutes walk) to a 4star hotel (where I was attending a conference) and it cost me 70 Yuan per night in a dorm room with 8 beds as opposed to 450 at the hotel where the event took place. Since there was no one in the dorm except me, I had the whole room to myself. But it would be crowded if all 8 beds were occupied (4 bunk beds) It is about 5 to 7 minutes walk from the bus stop. Number 5 bus from Dalian railway station travels to the bus stop near this hostel. Its a little more than 4 KM from the city center but closer to places like gardens and Zoo and good for budget travelers since they can find buses to these places. The beds are hard as in most of china, there are no fans of AC in dorm rooms so I will NOT recommend it for summers. Luckily for me it had rained and the weather was temperate. The shared toilets are clean. The showers in the bath are pretty good, good water pressure and very good supply of hot water (did not run out for the 30 minutes I used it). The water does leak out from under the door so be careful when you leave the bath. There are water heating kettles and quite a few cups so you can make tea/coffee for yourself. There is also a bar at the reception but I did not try it so can't say anything about it. There is free wifi. There are quite a few books but most of them in Chinese and maybe some other languages, nothing in English. There is a small shop right outside where you can buy stuff like cold water, biscuits etc. A much larger market with shopping malls etc on the main road a little further down the road from the bus stop. There is also a McDonalds there, about 15 minutes walk. There is a farmer's morning market in the open area in front of the shopping malls etc from early morning till 9 AM. There are all sorts of shops on the roads around the bridge. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the lady in charge can speak good English. I would recommend it to group of travelers on a budget who won't mind sharing a dorm room. AND only in TEMPRATE and Cool weather. NOT for HOT weather since there are no fans and AC in the dorm rooms. They do not allow children so not for families. Their room rates are kinda high and I would recommend looking for other nearby places which are much better with slightly higher rates. PS: Mosquitoes in that area in hot to temperate weather, so take some mosquito repellant and use the electric repellent provided in the room. Its cheaper to book a room/bed via phone compared to online booking websites, search the name in google and you will find the number on one of the pages.
