Harbin Kazy Int'l Youth Hostel
Ranked #1 of 136 Specialty Lodging in Harbin
Reviewed February 28, 2012

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.

Stayed in a private ensuite room, which is very basic but equipped with a tv. Heater didn't work very well, hence the room temp is still cold. Wifi is not available at room, but available at lobby only. Location is not bad, service is average. One thing good about this hostel is, you can get any winter clothes, from hat, mask, glove... down to shoes, at very reasonable price, if you are not prepared like me, in freezing cold Harbin..
With the same price., one could actually get a standard room in the hotel (7 days Inn) just across the street. Which I was told the room having better quality, from another traveller who stayed there.

We had read the reviews and my husband, Chinese friend and I booked a triple room thinking this would be a great hostel. We were very disappointed.
When we arrived, we were shown to a room which had 3 single beds, a tiny window that didn't open and a private bathroom. There were no towels or toilet paper so we inquired about them. It was 5 yuan to rent a towel and 1 yuan for a roll of toilet paper. We were shocked! We had never had to rent towels or buy toilet paper at any hostel before.
The room was so small, there was really no room to walk around the beds. There was black mold around the window sill and the air in the room stung our eyes and caught in our throats. The hall had incense burning so even the air outside our room was hard to breath.
The lobby was very small and filled with smoke. The internet wasn't working and hadn't been for a few days.
All in all, we stay for about 2 hours rather than the 4 nights we had booked. A 10-min walk down the road was a great hotel which was cheaper, bigger, cleaner and just pure heaven compared to where we had just been.
