This hotels pictures on the website don't match with what it really looks like. Rooms are super tiny. The man in reception was very nice. But it is located just off west street so SUPER noisy the whole night. Not very nice if you have driven for 8 hours to get here. Booked for 2 nights but did not stay...

We spent a Saturday and Sunday here in mid-Sept after four nights in a more rural location. 120RMB a night, seemed like good value for such a central location. Room was decent size, clean and well-appointed. En-suite Western toilet and shower. The owner was helpful, renting us bikes and helping us book tai chi lessons. It is a small place...

Things we liked: Good location, room was fairly clean. Thing we didn't like: Room was very noisy and bathroom smelt bad. Also, the owner - he completely tried to rip us off by adding some '15% service charge' to our stay. I was having none of it and refused to pay the extra as we had booked through hostelbookers. After...

The Location is very central just a few seconds from the main strip which makes it easy to pop out. My room was very clean and you get the feeling that they have made a real effort to make the place nice (something that is sadly lacking in most of China). Wi Fi was good. Lastly the owner Jack was...

Great place to stay if you're not looking for a party hostel. Rooms were comfortable, clean. Jack was very helpful, and was able to give advice, book onward travel and arrange tours. They seemed to be Chinese speaking tours, but after speaking to others there seems to be few English tours available, so more for convenience if it's a bit...
