My family and friends stayed in this hostel for 5D/5N from Dec.7-11. Our room was large enough for 6 pax with 3 double beds but we booked the room for my family only (4 pax). The CR is just right and cleaned everyday, with hot and cold water. The climate is so cold outside but the room is warm enough. There are thermos of hot water by the hallway for anyone to bring to their room. The staff are also accommodating and can speak English. The beds were comfortable but no TV in the room. With wifi connection. Breakfast is served every morning but for 5 mornings, we have the same orange juice, 3 toasted bread, 1 sausage or bacon, butter and jelly, fried egg and 2 small slices of fruit. I suggest to management to have variations for each morning for 7 days. We were fetched and brought to the airport for a fee like in a taxi.
Food stores are found around it. So many streetfoods, small restaurants and shops when you get out of the hostel. Not so long walk to the main road where our tour bus usually waits us for. However, it is so far from the subway station. We walked about 8-10 blocks from the hostel. We thought of taking a bus but almost all Chinese we asked for direction cant understand and speak English so we'd rather rely on maps.
You can ask them to fetch and bring you to the airport for a fee like in a taxi.
Overall, I would recommend this hostel. God bless.
