We are a small family run hostel with a different twist on hosteling. We are not just a hostel, but it is our home. A place you can feel at home and not be just another number at a hotel. Welcome to our home-hostel!

We are located in one of the last old parts of Xiamen, come see the way China used to be everywhere 50 years ago. Experience the old Xiamen before it disappears!

Just a 5 minute walk to the ferry port to Gulangyu Island and Zhongshan shopping street. We have a large rooftop garden with a view of the city and harbor, Wireless Internet, Big community kitchen. We are next to the Kaihe wet market which is one of the largest open air food markets in China with LOTS of fresh seafood and veggies. You can also eat some the cheapest food in China at many small local eateries.

Prices are per person per night.

The most important is to first find #160 Xiahe Road (厦禾路 160号)

Our address is: Jiutiao Alley #24 (九条巷24号). Please note!This alley is in a maze of small alleys, that even the local get lost in.

Once you find 160 Xiahe Road (厦禾路 160号) you are VERY close. Go up the stairs that enter into the old town, once at the top turn to the right and walk to the first alley on the left. Go down it and we are on the left side about 30 meters,(#24).

From the Train Station:
- By Taxi: will cost around 100 RMB, but sometimes they will try jack the price up by not using the meter and taking the long way.

There is BRT bus system which uses an elevated road like a metro system. Take #1B to kaihe road stop(开禾路口站)。it cost 4.5 yuan and an hour to get to the hostel stop..then come up the stairway right underneath the bus stop road..at xiahe road 160#

From airport:
-THERE is shuttle bus at the right side of the exit of airport..it costs 10yuan /per around 25 minutes to get off at the last stop (ferry port.) then transfer a regular bus just one stop away off at the Kaihe road bus stop.(开禾路口站)..next to the stop is the Xiahe road 160#, then follow the above directions.
Taxi costs around 50 yuan to kaihe road bus stop..

From the Hubin road long distance bus station
