I stayed at this hostel as it is close to the train station that the fast train from the airport arrives at. This was the only positive thing about my stay here. When I arrived I was told that they had given the bed I had paid for in a 5 bed dorm to someone else. I was therefore put in an 8 bed dorm.
None of the staff spoke English, something I have never experienced in all my travels at a hostel.
When I did manage to communicate with them they were completely unhelpful and clueless. They couldn't tell me which station my train to Beijing left from. When I found out myself on google, they couldn't tell me even roughly how much it would cost in a taxi. They didn't even want to book me one.
The rooms were overcrowded and uncomfortable. The sheet didn't fit over the mattress. The duvet was dirty and had obviously not been cleaned since the last guest.
You also have to walk up 4 flights of stairs to get into the hostel, not much fun with a large bag. And they had absolutely no tourist info such as maps or leaflets.
Overall the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. Avoid at all costs.
