  • The dorm had no access to fresh air. It smelled and felt like sleeping in a wet, moldy dungeon. A lot of our stuff smelled like this even after we left. We only stayed because there was nothing else available during mid-autumn festival. Some staff seem to get rather fretful when you need information in english. Others, however, are at least trying to help you (which is all I'm asking for). I'm not really picky regarding accommodation, but this was a rather bad experience.

  • Not the best choice for english speakers who will be needing information in english. If you do choose this hostel, ask for Lizie. I had seen another review a person had said that they roll their eyes when having to deal with the English speakers....its true. Thank goodness for Lizie. At least there was one person there to save me. Room was small, but for one person, I was happy. The shared other reviews have said....not a pretty thing to share. Someone had really bad aim.

  • Positives: perfect location. staff went beyond what would be expected of them to help me out (in a city where English isn't that common). not much better value for money in this area. Negatives: some rooms have smelly drain, but not all.

  • It's the best we could have had for a room in the center of Hangzhou at such a great price. The staff is really nice, helpful, and speaks English pretty well. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable. The decoration and the atmosphere were exactly what can be expected of a youth hostel in the center of a big city. I loved my stay there! The only thing that I would change would be the price of the coffe at the Cafe, a bit too pricey in my opinion.

  • We had duplex room - the room is very good, clean, done in wood, tatami matresse is good, air-con works ok, the bathroom is clean, big, with real door and ventilation, many towels, slippers. There is a TV, kettle and cups, place for baggage, very-very small yard. The location - in the middle of walking streat, 15 min from subway(not a pleasure walk). In the hostel there is a cafe, small rest zone, umbrellas, laundry(25Y for 3 kg - the staff wash and dry themselves), maps.

  • Everything worked and I was comfortable and slept well. The staff were what really made this a terrific hostel. They were friendly, very helpful, full of useful information and spoke excellent English. It is also a pleasant, clean and well located hostel, on a pedestrian street with good connections to many buses and metro and within walking distance of the lake. I would definitely stay there again.
