“The worst hostel I've ever been in!!!!”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

I would like to say that this in not a real hostel, infact there are a lot of private rooms (maybe good rooms, i don't know) and also dorms, but dorms are abandoned....the feeling is that they mantain dorms only because they are on a famous guidebook.
The dorms were really dirty, with broken beds, there was not hot water, only cold. In the bathroom cleanliness was non-existent.
Really a terrible place, I would never recommend anyone staying at this hostel.

We stayed here for two nights and though it is a big place, I'm pretty sure that no one else was in the hotel. The room we bargained down to 200 yuan, a big discount on the advertised rate. The room was great; roomy, clean, good shower/bed, and well designed. The staff were helpful and their western cafe is very nice. If it wasnt for the atmosphere I'd have given the place five stars; definitely one of the better places to stay in China.

We stayed at the youU hostel for 2 nights and enjoyed it very much. the staff, especially Yan and his sister (? partner?) were extremely nice and helpful. they bargained for us with taxi drivers who took us from and to the Jiuzhaigou airport. the rooms were great and the restaurant also very good.
room rates can be bargained over, and pay attention that a balcony room will cost more. overall - we highly recommend to stay there!

Absolutely do not stay here. We had $600 stolen from us at this location. stayed up all night with the police and hotel staff and came to no conclusion. The rooms are extremely cold, no hot water and the heaters never really heated up. Granted, we were here in December, but they charge a big price for a fancy facade. My friends and I are very experienced China travelers. We all lived there and spoke Mandarin easily. I never thought this would happen to me.
