I stayed here with a friend whist the school I was working at in Guangzhou was on Christmas holidays. We were at the hostel for 3 nights and I must say it is one of the better hostels I have stayed in.
There is a really nice and relaxed atmosphere there which I think is helped by the staff encouraging visitors to leave their stamp on the hotel in the form of art work in pretty much every room you go in to. There is a large seating area with comfy sofas and seating for lounging, going on your laptop, or ordering food. Or there is a smaller area next to the reception to order hot drinks form when if you are only having a quick one.
The room I stayed in was a 8 bed dorm. There was plenty of lockable cupboards should you want one, and the WIFI connection seemed to work fine throughout the hostel when I was there. The only thing I would probably change if I should ever return would be to get a room which had its own toilet. As we were there in December the place was really cold and during the middle of the night I have to go down 2 flights of stairs and out into a an outside courtyard where the toilets and showering facilities were. These were FREEZING and not lit the best. The showers in the morning were also just as cold, so maybe being in the comfort of your room, as so not to brave the elements would make this experience a little easier.
It is not exactly the most cleanest of hostels, but Wuhan is an industrial town, so therefore not entirely clean itself. I left with a bad chest and throat jsut from the couple of days we were there.
Wuhan is massive, even in Chinese terms. The city has actually been made up of 2 other cities, so therefore you will find things to do, it is just a case of actually getting there and back easily. However I found the taxi drivers to be really friendly and helpful (there was no metro at the time I visited, however I know that there was talk of one being constructed.)
