The garden inn is very suitable if you plan to just stop over in the city of Shenzhen before leaving for elsewhere. The rooms are adequately clean, though very dark. Wifi is advertised, though in our experience, non-existent. The staff are helpful, though the place is fairly empty.
This is probably because of the location. On an outer bypass style road, there is very little of interest close by, though it is near to the border crossing (thus its merits as a stopover place). Should you be stopping at Shenzhen as a first port of call for a trip through China (as we were), then this hostel is not for you. It is very hard to begin to imagine yourself moving forward due to the language barrier that is strong here in comparison to other hostels in the city, and the lack of other residents with which you might talk and learn about the area.
A good hostel in terms of functionality, but a bad hostel for those seeking a comfortable, long term experience.
