Backpacking is always my favorite lifestyle, whenever possible, i would definitely go out, to see what a beautiful world is.
A bit different from my other airbnb experiences, because this is a real hostel. However, the people were nice and helpfull. They do rent bikes, which is really a great way to explore the place, because of the immense traffic jams around the lake. Traffic jams before the door of the hostel make it a noisy place, and that`s a real pity.
Host was gracious and welcoming. Spoke English which made things easy. Heater in my room worked well and I was warm and comfy all night.
I booked this place for my parents who were visiting China. The hostel didn't meet the expectations of my parents. The cleanliness wasn't that great, no toilet paper was provided, towels only when they were asking for them. However, the food was excellent!
Nice youth hotel, convenient, near the west lake. There is a sympathic atmosphere with young people. The restaurant is convenient but if you prefer anothere place, a bigger restaurant is right next. The rooms are clean but not magnificent.
Highly recommend staying here! Super charming and cozy as promised, with friendly that speak good English and really take the time to talk and help out. Food is great and the location is within easy walking or biking distance to the West Lake and a lot of other attractions. One of my best experiences while traveling throughout China!
