This hostel's location is excellent - very easy to find. It's right behind the Laojie (Old Street) stone archway, opposite a popular fine Chinese restaurant. Though it's on a busy pedestrian street, it's not noisy at all when you're in your room. The private ensuite rooms are beautifully decorated with oriental furnishings (unlike most other spartan-looking hostels).
The Hostel reception can book minivan transport (18 RMB per person for one way; leaves at 6.25 am from the hostel) to Tangkou where you can catch a special tourist bus (13 RMB) to any one of the 2 cable car stations. The front desk provides free walking sticks if you prefer to hike up Mt Huangshan. Staff service is ok with some nicer or more efficient than others. 2 PCs are placed near the lobby for guests' free use. This hostel seems rather popular (front desk is usually busy), probably due to its excellent location and fairly reasonable price. Recommended.
