We went to Harbin for the annual ice festival this hostel fit the bill for what we needed: cheap, convenient, and facilitated transportation/tickets to the festival. Even sent us our official fapiao after we left. We did private room, which was pretty basic - bathroom had a slightly bizarre smell but looked like they had installed a brand new hot water heater for those showering. Heat definitely worked - our room was almost too warm. Typical Chinese beds (pretty hard). However, GREAT location in the old town - can walk everywhere you want to see walking street, river, St. Sophia, etc. Also, fact that it is the Old Main Synagogue definitely added character. For a quick weekend trip on a budget, definitely was a good pick.
