“Great Value-for-Money Hostel with friendly staff and excellent food”
Reviewed July 29, 2010

I stayed here for 3 days but extended my stay up to 5 days because I liked it so much. The new "manager", Melinda, did a very good job in helping me arrange trips and solve problems. It's a small hostel and family-run, so the atmosphere is very friendly and the staff is sleeping right next doors, if you had any problems :)
Location is very good, on a side street of the busy west street. Small downside: construction site behind the house when I was there. The room was basic, but clean. The bathroom was small but good enough for me. They also had a larger, nicer room, which I did not chose, since I was traveling alone.
The food there was excellent, though not exactly cheap; the serving time was a bit slow but the waiting time was more than worth it every single time! I only ate outside one time and would rather not have done so. I would definitely recommend this hostel to any backpacker and juvenile travelers, I had a great time there.

This is a simple small restaurant. I ordered Cashewnut Chicken but first was served some beef curry. At 28RMB mine was a rather cheap dish to be bad here, making the place kind of expensive. This may be justified by the quantity rather than the quality of food: my dish was too much for me but the taste didn't motivate me to eat more than necessary. 
Besides chinese there are western dishes, including a set of pizzas and pancakes/crépes and something they call "typical Israely" which is mostly Schnitzel. You can also have breakfast here. The manu is in English and Chinese and at least the owner/boss speakes enough English.  
The interior is decorated with graffity and praises from guests and there is free WiFi internet.

My wife and I stayed for two nights at the Backstreet Café in December. The location is excellent, the hospitality is warm and Hanah’s impressive English is refreshing. It can get a bit cold in the winter even with a heater in the room, but for the low-low price, this hostel is a good value.
