A fairly average experience

by Melanie B on 24 Oct 2016 (Solo Traveller)

As others have said, getting here is a bit tricky, and I wouldn't say it's ''in the heart'' of anywhere. You have to walk a lot to get to places, and if you don't speak Chinese navigating your way around can be a bit confusing. In terms of the hostel itself, the room was fine, bathrooms were fine, and yes it was quite clean. However, the staff were not friendly or helpful in the slightest, which I believe is an essential part of any good hostel. For that reason I rate it as average and no highe...

Not great

by medication on 03 Nov 2015

I wasn't impressed with this particular hostel, to be honest. After experiencing how good hostels can be in Xi'an and Chengdu, this was a bit of a let down. First, a horrible location. You have to either get a taxi or find your way through slums to a centre of town. Which could be an authentic experience in itself, though. Secondly, the rooms aren't great. The staff didn't speak much English, unfortunately. They were nice though and tried to be helpful.

Nice hostel, amazing location in Chongqing

Stayed at this hostel for 4 nights and felt like it was the real China - not the glitzy high end shopping mall city.

Firstly. I would not recommend if you don't like steps because this area has lots although you can avoid some by using the bus. Second. The directions to the hostel are i...

Service with a smile!

by kanabara on 04 Sep 2015

Location - as others have said, slightly difficult to find. Taxi driver wasn't sure even with the map provided. We paid 20rmb for taxi from jangkou metro. The driver started at 30 so we thought it was a good deal, but prob wasn't. We weren't sure it was the right hostel as the big sign says 'travelling with hostel' however I was able to recognise the archway which confirmed correct location. Once we got in, service was excellent, from sorting out the minor issue with room price to them phonin...

Good Chinese hostel

by DjangoDjango on 01 Sep 2015 (Couple Traveller)

We had a nice stay in this hostel in Downtown Chongqing. The staff is really friendly and speaks a decent amount of English, so they will be able to help you with any requests for your further travels. The communal area is nicely decorated and they have also a pooltable. You can get some Western and Chinese food. The dormroom we had was rather small but clean enough and the bathrooms where correct. The room was a bit worn out but still correct and it can get a bit noisy like most hostels in Chin...
