Very clean and comfortable room with a friendly and helpful team. Close to downtown Hangzhou by bus or cab. A very enjoyable stay. Right in the heart of the Westlands area...almost a bush setting. Some nearby local restaurants if you feel like staying nearby or meals and a bar available at the hostel.

After booking we obtained e-mail with clear information how to get the hotel, what shall we know before arrival and neccessary details written in local language. Hostel is located in very convenient place if you plan to visit not only town and lake but also tea fields. It is bit far from the city centre and from airport/railway station so...

Directions To West Lake Hostel Getting here is no easy feat but once you are here it is a fantastic place. DO NOT FOLLOW MAPS.ME AS IT LEADS YOU TO THEIR OLD LOCATION. It's no longer near the lake. EITHER: • From the East Railway station get a subway to Ding'an. • Walk West bound until you are at the...

Nice people who manage the place; one of them, a young man, spoke english, so that was indeed very helpful! Place was clean and rather very well located. Food was just about ok; this is where they can do something more. A few umbrellas with the management would have helped.....for when it rained, one was stuck. I went an bought...

Absolute pain to reach, even though we speak Chinese, and we had the taxi driver call the hostel it took us 30mins to locate it even though we were in the west lake area. 2. The front desk could not locate my booking even though I showed him a printout. 3....

We arrived in Hangzhou after 14 hours of travel to the nasty surprise that the hostel is an hour and a half from Hangzhou East Train station by bus. The directions that the hostel gives you on their website are *not accurate* and make it seem close. We called to ask how many stops it was to Hangzhou Zoo, unable...

Despite the location of the hostel (a small distance from the main attractions), the hostel has very clean and new rooms (2015). The living area is accessible at all time and as a dog lover, they have a beautiful welcoming golden retriever. The backyard of the hostel is very well maintained and beautifully landscaped, with wifi accessible throughout the compound....

PRO: first of all the price, very cheap; the rooms are very clean; the staff is friendly; a beautiful garden around the hostel. A very good typical chinese restaurant in front of the hostel. CON: the rooms are very small, this is a problem if you travel with big trolley, you can't walk in your room; the location is quite...

The Receptionist is very helpful, speak good English and ready to be your travel guide, and give very helpful information about your next trip. The Dorm room have a private toilet/bathroom in each room. The bathroom and the room is very clean. The hot water run smooth, make you can sleep well after your trip. I really recomend this hostel....
