  • I had trouble finding the hostel (it's not on Huashan Xi Lu), so I called them for help. The man who answered just said "Ting bu dong." and hung up on me, so I was alone on the street at 1:30 AM. The room had moldy walls and no air conditioner. The towel was full of holes and the hair dryer didn't heat up. When I called the hostel for directions from the bus stop, the staff couldn't help me (it was two blocks away). The most helpful thing they did was book a car to take me to the airport. Avoid.

  • Like many places in China, facilities have gotten older very quickly here. Great atmosphere in the garden and restaurant/bar. The staff was very accommodating for our student group, preparing breakfast for us an hour before they officially opened every morning.

  • At first it doesn't seems so appealing, but then the atmosphere conquers you and if you are lucky enough to befriend some guests, your stay will be unforgettable. Brig a good mosquito repellant if you go in summer!
