Was going to stay here, but the client put me up in a large hotel nearby, so I popped in for breakfast. Food and presentation was great, staff friendly, let me park my hire bike inside for security (bikes go fast in China, even with a lock) and the place is very clean. If the café is a reflection on...

I was only one night here. It was perfect and I will recommend you to stay here. It's clean, cheep and real central to main city. The bed was good for well sleeping and no noise in this central place. If you like, you can get a breakfast as well.

Fantastic location next to the commercial pedestrian street, right in front of a pretty decent food court, steps away from the river and within easy walking distance of the twin pagodas park. All the staff speak English and are very helpful and motivated. Place is very clean, common room is pleasant. The little café and restaurant serves pretty hearty breakfasts... More

+ Room was spacious + Air conditioning was good + Location perfect, next to the pedestrian street + Easy to find with the instructions provided by hostel + English speaking staff - Bathroom smelled bad - Wifi wasn't good in the room - Very noisy hallway and you can hear it to your room (acoustics is very poor)

We stayed here for 4 nights, and couldn't be happier with the hostel. Staff was extremely friendly, and spoke good English, always happy to help. Beds were comfortable, had curtains for privacy and security lockers were well located by the beds for extra safety. Private bathrooms in the shared rooms were also appreciated. Food downstairs was reasonably priced and delicious... More

We had a private room and it was SMELLY! The room had an overwhelming odor of something I could not identify. The bathroom also smelled very strongly of sewer - it was bad enough that I found myself going in there trying to hold my breath as long as I could. The smells were so bad that I dreaded going...

My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights in a private double room. The whole hostel was clean and tidy, there was air conditioning and the en suite shower was brilliant. There is wifi throughout the hostel, the main area has a VPN built in so you can get into Facebook and watch iPlayer with no problem. The staff are... More

Definitively like this place. It is centrally located and easy to reach by bus. The staff is very helpful and really nice. The dorms are new, spacious and very confortable with a bathroom attached. You can also do laundry free of charge. No fault on this one. 100% recommended.
