The hostel has a good location if you plan to visit both Longjing and West lake. It's well connected by bus to both places and also to different bus/train stations. The atmosphere in the main lobby is very amicable and staff is very helpful. I booked single room via bookng.com and got a room under the staircase - humid and... More

The location of this hostel is far from the Hangzhou Railway Station (approx. 30 mins horrendous taxi ride, Hangzhou taxi drivers are mad drivers!) Nothing to eat around that area except a tiny eating place outside the hostel (where there's no patron all day). Otherwise have to go further down the road to a sort of 'local happening place' which... More

The hostel can be hard to find if coming in from the train station, you need to get a bus and will be lucky to find the right stop. Luckily we met a Canadian lady on the bus that helped. The staff in the hostel are really great, especially a camp guy whose name I cannot remember. He was amazing... More

We stayed here a long time ago but promised to write them a review. Harry (not sure if he still works there) went completely out of his way to make sure our stay was perfect. He even helped us book our train tickets to Shanghai as we thought we might not make it back to work in Beijing in time.... More

In this lush wooded slightly scattered village #4 bus (zoo stop) out south from the lake there are two hostels which as a non-Chinese one may feel things more cosmopolitan. One is Tour'an; t'other is Daisy. Don't get me wrong, I have nae probs being the only non-Chinese in camp (plenty fun anyway, despite some language barrier); just nice once... More

Stayed here one night. The staff were really helpful, especially Owen. They provided us tourism advise and advised on where to eat and how to get around which was really helpful. The communal showed and toilet are cleanish. But there is no lock on the shower room door so people come and go as they please, which may make some... More

This hostel is advertised as a backpacker hostel, but it doesn't really feel like it. The lobby/main area is probably the only part that makes it "backpacker". It's really well decorated and has couches and a tv. However, the rooms themselves are really plain and just seem like dull hotel rooms. Our double was tiny, it literally fit just the... More

Besides the fact that the staff was really enthusiastic and tried really hard they just couldn't make it true. I would never go here again or recommend this place. There were dogs and cats walking around everywhere which was really disgusting. I was so done with this place after eating a sandwich with dog fur. Beds were terrible. Never had... More

This hostel is located to a fair distance from the lake, and very close to the tiger spring and the pagoda. There are buses which run regularly close to it, please make sure you have the change for the bus. Inside, the hall is very warm and unique.

Touran Backpacker Hostel is exactly that, a backpackers hostel. This makes it a great place to meet people - the commom room downstairs is perfect for this while you can have your drinks here, and breakfast and diner are verry good. Also the wifi is best downstairs - so you want to be there :-) The staff is great. Very... More

“Dorms are en suite with western loos, so in this respect superior to Daisy Hostel (see my comparison review from round the corner.”

“We stayed at the top floor in room 215. The bathroom had a constant puddle of water on the floor. The beds are hard but comfortable. If you are a light sleeper, you may find the traffic (Hupoa Lu is busy) a bit much.”
