Shenzhen LOFT Youth Hostel
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Just 15 min walking distance from Metro station. It's located in a high-end district, surrounded by trees. A place to escape from the noisy city. Many restaurants and bars are around though little pricy. I stayed in the private room with a small shower room with big window with view of trees. A great choice if you want to stay a place like home rather than staying in a chained hotel at similar price. You better call in to check availability as I booked on line and found no vacancy on line. but when I arrived, they still have a private room available. 離地鐵站只有15分鐘走路的距離,這區屬於高級地段,街道有許多綠樹,環境也比較清幽,在華僑城LOFT裡有許多餐廳和酒吧,用餐還滿方便的,雖然價錢會比在其他區貴一點。

I had booked a bed in dormitory of that youth Hostel, from the Guangzhou Riverside Inter'l Youth Hostel and they told me 't was ok. But then, after a long trip from Guangzhou and by the subway, with a heavy luggage, when I reached it, I was told unpleasantly and rudely that they didn't accept any traveller of more than 65yo in the dormitory. Although I asked them why, I didn't get any proper answer. So I had to take a room with many beds but for me alone, at an higher cost! There I met a Japanese of my age who confirmed that position. What I mean, that hotel does not accept a traveller if he is more than 65 years old! But they should say that before at least at the time of booking.
Besides that place is situated near the Overseas Chinese Town and is, of course, taking advantage of that situation to "appear" posh. I do NOT advise that hotel for a "real" traveler who likes to visit a place as a "real" tourist. Then the next day I left for another place more welcoming and friendly.

I have been in China 20 years, traveling all over and in different conditions. This hostel is the WORST ever experience, Expensive (with Rmb 200 you can find a 4 star hotel in Shenzhen), animals all around, dirty sheets, completely humid, cement floors, no safety, terribly noisy, never changing towels. And if you think that people in the South of China are friendly, well...this is the wrong address. No smiles, advanced payment required in a rude way. I am surprised that these structures still exist in China: the Yuyan Xue yuan (language institute ) of Beijing of the Nineties was better.

the place is located in a nice area: green and peacefull; it doesn't look to be in shenzhen.
The interiors are interesting and warm, it could be a nice place where to spend a night talking with other travelers and sharing experience... BUT at midnight the common area is closed, you cannot go in the garden, nor smoking anymore, nor chatting.
The staff is very rigid and not helpful at all, they seem mind their own business and don't care of the customers.

Friendliness of Staff: Some of them helpful, some of them not.

Room: I like their dorm room. Very clean. But, it is to small. The locker is outside, and feel unsecure.

Security: Everybody can enter the hostel. But for the room door, you need a keycard. The locker is outside, so it so unsecure seem anybody can go up to your room floow and open the locker. The alleyway is dark at night.

Location: I love where this hostel location. Surrounding by the beautiful restaurant. 10 minutes walked to MRT station. 1 station away from Splendid China, 2 stations away from Windows of the World

What I Dont Like: In the dorm room, they were 3 occupancy. Both of us have a cardkey. But the electricity is using the cardkey. Example, the electricity now is powered by the other person in your room, when he/she want to get out, he/she need to take out the cardkey, so there will be a blackout for a moment until you put your own key.

WIFI: Only at the common room. Quiet slow. And the common room really-really cold.

This is a nice looking place. It has a great motto printed on paper but it is never spoken so it isn't really followed. I think that is the problem. Our first and second night even though it is clearly printed no smoking our room filled with smoke from another room and it was hard to sleep. It is also clearly printed but not said to be quiet and respectful around the rooms but there were also many loud people around 11:30 at night.

The owners need to have the employees clearly state the rules of the hostel at check in because they are not followed.

The employees are also not very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. I asked for help and saw many people ask for help and they were not helped they were kind of ignored. There are lots of them working but they don't do very much.

There is only wifi in the common room. It is pretty slow but it works. We just went and it is really cold in the common room. They should have a space heater and the windows closed but I do understand that is a Chinese way.

The location is beautiful with many nice restaurants and shops. We enjoyed that a lot.
