I chose this hostel because of the fact that it is a renovated mansion from republican era China. The hostel itself is pretty cool. There are lots of antiques and fun things to look at, and it is in fact a renovated mansion! The staff were pretty unhelpful though. This could be that I'm an american, but they all seemed...

The hostel is situated in a good location, which is surrounded by beautiful buildings built during the early 20th century when Guo Min Dang was running the city. It's about 10-15 mins walk to the metro station nearby. The Presidential Palace, Six Dynasties Museum, Jiangsu Art Museum, Nanjing library and many tourist attractions are all within walking distance. The hostel...

This hostel has a nice relaxed atmosphere and the food and drink selection was good. Most of the staff seem semi-helpful, although when asking if they could call a taxi they basically told me to go find one. The room was mostly fine with good facilities apart from it was quite dark without a main light. I also thought soap...

I stayed here with my parents and my partner for one night, in double rooms. Reception was ok but the staff seemed a little bored. They answered any questions quite willingly, but were not particularly engaging. The rooms were 320RMB each. Spacious, clean (apart from scuffs on floor and chipped walls and doors etc). Shower and bathroom were both clean....

This hostel is located just behind one of the main streets, the locals are very good at guiding the lost traveller directly to the hostels door. The hostels interior is beautiful, an amazing mix of retro and modern china - you could spend hours just drinking coffee and looking at all the paraphernalia that takes you back to the 50s,...

We stayed for one night in a private twin room. Pros: Helpful staff with good English They allowed us to have a shower/store our luggage when we arrived early in the morning after catching an overnight train Nice reception area/café, good (but pricey) coffee. A good place to read/chill for a few hours if you want a rest Air conditioner...

My wife and I stayed in a double room. We could hear everything in the hallway, out the window and through the wall to the neighbouring double room. The young couple next door used their room to talk very loudly, bang the walls and laugh until 4:30am. After doing the nasty they then fell asleep and started snoring loudly. At...

Lobby area had a nice vibe, rooms were not available until 2:00. So they kept our bags behind the desk. Check-in staff were nice. The room was simple and clean. Firm beds and no where to put your bags but on the floor between the beds. The bathroom probably had the most need for a update. I was able to...

Slept well, friendly poeple and republican-era building surroundings create a good atmosphere. Clean room on top of the main entrance. The terrace is a bit negleted. Some mosquito nets on the windows would improve the stay. Not so easy to find.
