Good place in the center of the city. The personnel give a lot advice and it very accessible. I sleep two night in this hostel. Really, you can come in this hostel. The dorm is simple, but it is very good for a price. The bed is comfortable and you have shower and toimet by room.

The staff here is so helpful, friendly and service minded. This place is cheap but has an ok standard for a night or two. Very convenient to the railway station. The beds are softest so far in China, also they're wide. Good internet provided. I would stay here again.

The rooms and toilets are clean but they all look like they have been around for ages without touch up. Room without window has a smell and we had to air it as much as we can by opening the door. Still a good place to sleep for me though. Location wise, it is very near to bus station where... More

Weary run down place but central, near to downtown and buses. Very basic room but cheap I guess. Old main door couldn't even slid open easily, hard when you've got luggage. Not a bad area to meet other travellers.

The only good thing is the location. It doesn't look like a hostel. The furniture and equipment in the rooms are all recycled one, very old and not clean. TV is not good, the color is strange - all in blue color shade. The remote control for TV is missing in the beginning, I have to ask staff to find... More

We stayed in a clean and spacious double room at the back of the building. There is a small restaurant serving meals and breakfast. The hostel is a few minutes walk from the bus station and the train station is a little bit further down the road. The Sun & Moon Twin Pagodas are also within walking distance. The staff... More
