This hostel is slightly different to a lot of hostels as it's kind of run also as a bar and they state that you cannot take your own food and drink into the bar. There are 2 problems I have with this: one is that the prices for drinks in the bar is high (certainly compared with everywhere else we've been in China - 15Y for all beers); and second, the bar is the only real communal space in the hostel so I think it's a harsh rule not to allow food and drink in there.
This aside, we stayed in a 4 bed dorm and it was nice and clean. The showers are good and there 24hr running boiling water for tea and noodle pots as there is everywhere in China. The staff speak pretty good english and are helpful. They provide many services and also some trips to the wall etc although it's cheaper to do it yourself. Location is good too.More
