We stayed two days in this hostel. The check-in was absolutely friendly, although it was late in the evening. The room was simple and clean. We had a privat room, which was clean and for us comfortable. The only minus, that you can smoke in the common area and that is hard for non-smoker. But in the end, many thanks... More

The ladyboss is very helpful and willling to accomodate to our requests. She is very friendly. However, the cleanliness and condition of the toilet could be improved. The other staff were also not as au fait with the hotel procedures as compared to the ladyboss.

Don't stay here. I thought it could've been better because some of the reviews said that it's been improving, but I guess I don't know how bad it was before. the dorm I stayed in was very cold (they said that the heater was on, but I can't feel any heat coming out of the "heater"). very minumu English was...

The staff are really nice. The man gives good recommendations of Datong and is willing to help make the stay enjoyable, sadly he only speaks Chinese. But the lady speaks decent English. The car rides they host to the attractions are worth it and good! The place is decent. Yes people do smoke in the common room, but thankfully are... More

Location is good if you want to use the bus. The walking street is very ritzy and not much around. The hostel itself was noisy. We had a private room and might as well been in a dorm. They have a child that stomps around and screams in the common area....we had to ask for toilett paper and towels and... More

The staff are very nice and do their best to help despite limited English. For what it is though I think it's somewhat overpriced. The drains are a bit smelly, no toilet paper or towel provided and the room layout is rather odd to say the least. Bed was pretty hard (as usual in China) and the linen was worn... More

The room is big enought, they are friendly, the location is good but we can listen the people at the street. The bathroom is a glass box, so if you are planning to share a room with a friend don't be shy.

You do not have a lot of offers in Datong but this one is enough. Staff speaks a bit english. Bed are chinese standard and clean (not soft ;) ), Location is good but the entry is difficult to find. Street is loud, do not expect to sleep late. Bathroom are average too.
