The staff weren't very helpful or approachable, but everything else was good. Location is handy - fairly near a Metro stop and a supermarket is just around the corner too. Wifi in rooms would be a bonus, instead of having to sit in the common area all the time. Would stay here again.

I stayed there for 2 nights, in 3-bed female room. The room wasn't big but sufficient. The beds are comfortable and the sheets are clean (u start appreciating that when backpacking).
The toilet was clean with hot water.
The lounge is very nice with free wifi and some computers which u can use for money.
The staff was nice and helpful.

The only problem for me was the location. It was pretty hard finding the place in the first place-far from the metro station, but it's ok if u're not staying for a long time.
There is a big grocery store near by.

So, in total, i recommend this place coz it's nice and cheap.

Enjoy!

I stayed two non-consecutive nights in this hostel. And both experiences were overall nice. The staff in welcoming, and really helpful. Furthermore they can provide you with all the information you may need for a trip to Hong Kong or other Mainland cities.
I stayed in the 3 female dorm, the room was clean (although some mosquito repellent would be a good idea), the bathroom was clean also.
The common area was spacious, filled with daylight and comfortable to stay in the evenings. There is also a kitchen open for the residents (boiler, fridge but no cooking plates). Breakfast is served from 7.30 to 9.30, very basic so you might consider just going out to one of the coffee shops nearby. Laundry services are also proposed, 12CNY for a load.The major problem I have encontered staying in this hostel was the incredibly slow (or sometimes not working) internet connection. The should really think about upgrading the installation.
Overall, Shenzhen Youth Hostel is a great option for a short stay in Shenzhen and a good place to plan your future travels.

The hostel is actually a bit far from de MTR station. But easily found with de guideline/ map of their website.
I was staying in de 3 bed-female dorm which was located on de 3rd floor. It was over-all clean and funished in IKEA's style. de Shared bathroom is clean enough.
De atmosphere of the hostel, common area is really nice. So do the neighbourhood of the hostel is nice and relaxing.
