Our room and bathroom were very spacious.The location is perfect for shopping, food, elephant hill, pagodas/lake.

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...

We stayed here for 4 nights, and couldn't be happier with the hostel. Staff was extremely friendly, and spoke good English, always happy to help. Beds were comfortable, had curtains for privacy and security lockers were well located by the beds for extra safety. Private bathrooms in the shared rooms were also appreciated. Food downstairs was reasonably priced and delicious...

We had a private room and it was SMELLY! The room had an overwhelming odor of something I could not identify. The bathroom also smelled very strongly of sewer - it was bad enough that I found myself going in there trying to hold my breath as long as I could. The smells were so bad that I dreaded going...
