Believe the hype. I've been to many hostels around the world, and this one is right up there. In terms of value, it's definitely the best one I've been to. It's clean, fun, and quiet. Rick and Rachel are fantastic, and are the *only* hostel owners I have ever encountered that actually make a difference in the experience. They are your housekeepers, your travel agents, and even your chefs. Their english is great too! And the giant bottles of beer are something like 5 RMB.
The only negative part is finding the place, since it's in a series of back alleys and no one in the area speaks english.
