Reviewed 10 October 2011

I stayed here with my family of five for one night (the last of 4 nights spent in Xiamen, as the only hostel accommodation I could find left during China's very busy Golden Week public holiday). The hostel is located in an old and pretty house with a garden in a very good location, a pleasant 10 minute walk to Zhongshan Lu. The family room had 3 large beds and could comfortably accommodate the five of us. The room was very basic with no towels or even toilet paper provided unless you asked for it at reception. The hostel rate is a very good price, and having stayed in many hostels in China I expect basic, which is acceptable and fine, but I do hope for cleanliness. The floor in the rooms looked very dirty and the sheets on the beds were "coloured" - something of a bug-bear of mine as I always think coloured sheets are used to disguise the fact that they are probably not very clean. The beds were comfortable but I woke at 3am having been bitten all over by mosquitos (I did not have the windows open).
All that said - the hostel staff are simply wonderful ! Very young girls and boys who are very friendly and went out of their way to book a coach tour for me at a very good rate. They were all wonderful with my children and this place was a huge hit with them! I don't think I would choose to stay here again simply because of the floors and sheets but it was fine for one night.

An attractive old house and good quality rooms at a very cheap rate make this a good choice. Were I to go again however I would choose to stay on Gulangyu, but if you are staying in town then this is an excellent choice (friends stayed at a mid range hotel, paid four to five times the price).
A few minor negative points: The staff speak very little English but do their very best to help you out. Location: I was never really sure where in Xiamen I was. I ended up taking taxis to get around. I suspect the rooms might be subject to damp in the height of summer when humidity must be much higher. Breakfast wasn't served until 8am (I think)
But in a private room you have A/C and a flat screen TV - can't ask for much more in a Youth Hostel.
Do go and see the Tulous while you are there.
