I only stayed here for one night, but I found this hostel to be comfortable and clean. The welcome was very warm and friendly, I even got a tour around the hostel and was shown to my room. However, I had to wait for about half an hour until I could check in because no one was at reception. I understand, however, that people do need breaks, so I simply made myself comfortable in the cozy lounge in the meantime and one of the many DVDs.
The backpackers is located above the Mountain Jade Factory, and fro the lounge you can actually look down into the shop, which makes for a very different and interesting view. Also, you get a 10% discount when you buy something there.
Practically everything can be reached on foot in just a few minutes, and a public library with free WiFi is just. Few metres down the road.
The walls in the common areas and even he rooms are decorated with funny wall paintings instead of the usual advertisement posters. Everything was very clean. The communal kitchen, however, is a bit small, and although there were several free spices, all of them except for the salt were empty.
In summary, my stay was pleasant, and considering that a night at this hostel is cheap in comparison to most others, I got excellent value for my money. I would definitely recommend it.
