Great food, great staff, great rooms, great location and it's cheap. Just do it and go there. The lobby is also very relaxing and was not crowded at all. The integrated restaurant has cheap but awesome food!

First & foremost, this hostel's breakfast food is not to be missed! It's the best western style breakfast I had in all of China - the banana & honey waffles alone are to die for! Hopefully that got your attention! Anyhow, on with the review. I stayed in a private double bedroom with a very reasonable rate. As I had...

Was going to stay here, but the client put me up in a large hotel nearby, so I popped in for breakfast. Food and presentation was great, staff friendly, let me park my hire bike inside for security (bikes go fast in China, even with a lock) and the place is very clean. If the café is a reflection on...

I was only one night here. It was perfect and I will recommend you to stay here. It's clean, cheep and real central to main city. The bed was good for well sleeping and no noise in this central place. If you like, you can get a breakfast as well.

Fantastic location next to the commercial pedestrian street, right in front of a pretty decent food court, steps away from the river and within easy walking distance of the twin pagodas park. All the staff speak English and are very helpful and motivated. Place is very clean, common room is pleasant. The little café and restaurant serves pretty hearty breakfasts...

+ Room was spacious + Air conditioning was good + Location perfect, next to the pedestrian street + Easy to find with the instructions provided by hostel + English speaking staff - Bathroom smelled bad - Wifi wasn't good in the room - Very noisy hallway and you can hear it to your room (acoustics is very poor)
