I chose this hostel first of all because of its price. Food in the hostel is a bit overpriced but very good. Handy when you are too lazy to go outside to eat or it's just too cold. Menu has many options and they are all delicious! No free breakfast, internet only in the common areas and apparently on the first and second floor. Beds are not so comfortable, but it's something you can handle.
Didn't find the hostel a good place to meet new people specially because there are many chinese people in it (yes, guests) and they only speak between themselves.
15min walk to the train station. 10min walk from Yashow Market (which was GREAT)
Bathrooms are clean and shower is good. All the tours offered in the hostel are EXTREMELY overpriced!! I read some people saying staff is not friendly and that if you don't go on a tour with them, they pretend they don't know anything, but I disagree. To me they were friendly and helped me with everything I needed. There is also a bar area 10min away from the hostel. I didn't go there but two of my roommates said it was really good. Overall a cheap and fair hostel.
