An excellent place to stay, and cheap as well. The historic building with its interior courtyard is amazing, almost like a museum. The rooms are very cozy and charming (although they did get a bit chilly at night), The staff is also very friendly. We had both their breakfast and dinner, both excellent. So basically, this place is amazing, no... More

Like in most Hostels in China, the service here is very good: we were served by a young, very smart girl who spoke excellent English. She was eager to answer all our questions and help us in every way she could. She explained us how to get to the Hongcun and Xidi villages and even wrote us in Chinese what... More

For some reason this is marked as it is located in Huangshan, in reality this is town called Tunxi ! The hostel is located right on the "historical" old street ( in reality not so historical as many places in China it is rebuild). Location is good, prices are OK for what you get, beer in the on-site restaurant is... More

We stayed in a six bed dorm for 40 yuan, pretty good value. Room itself was good, spacious with large lockers and air con. Hostel is in a good location on old street and has a nice bar with pool table and karaoke, if you're so inclined! The reason for the average rating is that there was no bathroom in... More

Perfect base: Absolutely loved the location. The old street was full of shops and restaurants, one can spend hours walking through it. Perfect place to stay to explore nearby towns like Hongcun and Xidi, and the beautiful Huangshan, which they can arrange for you to get there. We stayed in a triple room for less than US$30 a night. We... More

Hostel is nicely located on the Old Street with lovely shops and excellent places to eat. Bit confusing to find it as the entrance is through the shop with tea leaves. It makes this place special but more visible information would be appreciated. People from other shops guessing that we are searching for this hostel immediately went to us to... More

We thought this hostel was excellent and enjoyed our stay here. We stayed two nights in a private double room, and at $30/night thought the facilities were clean and adequate for the price. The room was spacious, with a comfortable Japanese-type low bed. Bathroom was clean though fussier guests may not have thought so. The location of the hostel is... More

This hostel was in the perfect location. It was close enough to yellow mountain and was situated in the quaint town of Tunxi. The town was a lovely place to explore!

It's a great location for the hostel and nice walking around the town and old street. The hostel staff spoke great English and were very helpful in helping me get to the mountain and where to go for the day. The rooms are basic but accomodating.

There was a thank-you email message the moment we booked, which was nice. We stayed in a triple room with ensuite bathroom. The heating from the air-conditioner was inadequate and it was very cold at night. Our room opens onto a nice cosy open area for chatting and having a drink.
