The hostel is in very convenient location, not far from the bus stop, many local restaurants nearby, only few minutes walk from the plaza of the city center which is very impressive and fantastic in the evening. Staffs are friendly and helpful. However if you have a group of Chinese guests, you would be a bit annoyed with the noise.

This hostel is located in the old town of Datong, behind the wall of old city. It is 3 min walk away from very beautiful Huayan Temple (must visit!). We had a very quiet double bed room, that was facing the opposite side of the main street, hence very peaceful room. Very budget friendly (20€ per night). Room has it's own shower and toilet, TV, WiFi is very good etc. The only bad part is that during the night it can smell funny because of the bad draining system in the shower. And they don't clean everyday, so trash stays in your room until you depart. Still had a pleasant time here. Recommend to anyone! :)

+ Basic but good enough room considering the price and the short duration of our stay. Request a quiet room not facing the main street as this one is ridiculously loud from the early morning. - Internet is often not working. Sadly, like in most hostels in China, the issues are most likely to come from other guests (noise, smoke right in front of your room...) who couldn't care less if they are right in front of your door. Management not lifting a finger to have some sort of respect is, in my opinion, to blame too... The street noise level during the day is mad, not that it is these guys fault, but worth noting in my opinion...

This place is very well located. It’s walking distance for main attractions inside the walled city. Rooms are very comfortable and warm for the cold weather in October. Showers are excellent. Unfortunately the toilet’s door in our room was broken, forcing us to use the shared toilets. There is a lack of information to get to places on your own since the place is running some tours. Staff is not the most friendly but ok.

The hostel is in a central location inside the city walls, and we found it using public transport and a bit of walking. You have to go through a shop to get to the hostel which was a bit confusing, but there's signs so you can find it. The staff were really helpful, (and spoke far more English than our very limited Mandarin which helped!) and helped us to arrange a taxi-share to the Hanging Temple and Hengshan Mountain which made our trip a lot cheaper! The toilet and shower was in our room, the shower cubicle leaked a bit but was fine.
