Wushanyi International Youth Hostel
Wushanyi Intl. Youth Hostel is a member of IYHF, it is located in the pedestrian area, since moved from a garden on the hillside in the city central in April 2011, after 6 years there. The pedestrian area used to be the Imperial center of Latter Song (Nan Song) Dynasty, and the Imperial Street used to be 10 Chinese miles long, from south to north, connecting the Forbidden City, residences of celebrities and well-known shops at that time.
The hostel is only a couple of hundred meters from any of these tourist attractions: The Historical Gate, Traditional Chinese Medical Museum(TCM), Residence of Hu Xueyan, Pedestrian Hefang & Imperial Street. A short 5-minute walk will take you to either Wushan Square or Intime Shopping Mall, and it is just a 15 minutes walk to West Lake. The hostel is about 1.7 km from the main (central) train station - an 11 yuan taxi fare. It is an extremely conveniently place to hang out!
The hostel is a very bright and neat property combined with a Chinese exterior and a Western interior, clean rooms, cozy mattresses and big windows, a spacious lobby with couches and public computers that are always to be occupied freely in any time. Staff at the reception always do their best to be friendly and helpful to guests, who often keep returning from all over the world, either staying in shared dorms or private en suite!
FREE WiFi is available in the shared dorms and communal areas - where there is a pool table for relaxing and meeting fellow guests. Free luggage storage is provided at the reception, train, coach tickets and laundry service with extra charges are also available.
Western and Chinese dishes, as well as a daily breakfast, are served at Cafe Shine 200m away. The hostel and Cafe Shine are run by the same owner.
