This is the nicest hostel I have ever stayed at in China as it’s clearly up to international standards! One negative is the location as it’s a bit of a hike (maybe 10-15 minutes) to the nearest subway & the train station (the tram goes by much closer though) IF you have a lot of luggage (Dalian is also hilly) BUT it’s worth the trouble to stay here. My other complaint is the lack of e.g. a tourist/travel binder or something w/ up-to-date Dalian info as some of the front desk staff speak English while others do not (but they still did their best to be helpful via translator apps). The toilets etc have toilet paper & soap or shampoo – generally not common in Chinese hostels! They were also reasonably clean BUT this might depend on how many people are staying here. The beds (there were no upper bunks - at least not in my room) though don’t have blackout curtains for complete privacy/darkness if the lights are on. The hostel itself has an industrial design with a lot of open space or places to hang out with power sockets. I did not eat breakfast here (there are convenience stores right by the hostel and places to eat nearby – if you speak Chinese…). There was water available in the main space (I assume this was filtered) and a kettle to boil it with the Internet generally work fine here (but the cement walls in the rooms may disrupt reception in the rooms).

Stayed here for the weekend with two of my friends for a 15K we were running. We stayed it the 4 person shared room. The room had lots of space and beds were very comfortable. There was no bathroom in the room. If you are cool will the whole hostel sharing 3 toilets and 2 showers you will be fine. They had 2 squat toilets and 1 western toilet. Showers were nice, you get a locked door for privacy. I would say bring your own toilet paper. There were a few occasions that I walked in to the stall and there was no paper. Staff all spoke understandable English, and we ate at the the restaurant for brunch. Food was comparable for the price. The hostel is located a little outside of the main downtown area but the subway line 2 is just a short walk away. As well as, a mall.

Ubisoft is located within 20 minutes walk from the train station is a popular hostel for local travellers. My room has four built in bunk beds although I saw some with two twin beds in them. White bedding and comforter on the bed with a locker in each. A pad lock can be provided at the receptionist. Spacious lounge area with sofas, tables and chairs for those who prefer to work outside their room. The unfinished poured concrete walls was accented with simple decor adds to a homey feel. Prices are very reasonable for my two nights stay. It has a cafe/deli that serves western breakfast, coffee, and alcoholic beverages in the evening. Although a little distance from towns attractions, however, if you know how to ride the public transit it ok. During my stay, I did not encounter a single foreign traveller. Mostly young travelling Chinese. Highly recommend to any travellers.

We stayed here a night from Saturday to Sunday in April. We used open street map offline map to find the hostel, it's not far from Dalian train station, but there are no signs to find it. The entry looks nice, but the building and the area looks really run down. Inside the hostel has a nice industrial look. We booked a family room with three beds and got a room with a double and a single bed. The staff was friendly, they even spoke a bit English, but we couldn't get a third blanked. Check-in starts at 3pm, if you arrive before you can bring your luggage to a special room. In the hall of the hostel are some couches, tables, a reading are and a big TV, everything looks nice. Breakfast is free, which is really good for the cheap price of the night. Now the bad things: our room was in the main floor, directly near the big hall with the tables and the TV. Even after they turned of the TV and shut down the lights (10pm), you could hear everything - everybody walking through the hall and the people in the room above (when they spoke and even when they were listening music). The walls are too thin and there is no construction to avoid noise. After finally I fell asleep they started construction in the hostel on Sunday at 7am! The used a loud saw and hammered all the time - it sounded like they wanted to break down the house - at 7am! It's a pity, because the hostel is nice, clean, friendly stuff, you get towels, linen, breakfast, even a toothbrush for free and the price is okay. But with the noise it's impossible for me to come back here. If you want to book this hostel, you should ask them for a room upstairs at the end of the big hall (opposite site of breakfast room) or bring something to cover your ears in the night.

I went to another hostel before this, and they were really rude and didn't accept me as have a foreign passport. Many hostels and hotels have this problem in Dalian for some reason but Uniloft had no such problem. I stayed in a dorm for about $10 (which is nothing for the quality you get) and overall the hostel is spotlessly clean and the attention to detail in "chic industrial-esque "design is impressive. Fresh bedsheets, high pressured hotshowers, extra changing room in shower inbuilt are rare in budget hostels but Uniloft ticks all the boxes . Staff (Eric) too at the front desk speak fluent english which is unusual in China but of course helpful! Massively recommended as budget hostels like this are rare in this world
