we stayed as a family and checked in on 2 rooms at the first floor. The hotel is cozy as all other hostels and the rooms are clean. We have everything available. There is a school for children next to our rooms and I delighted seeing children playing outside of my window. The staff is very friendly and the food... More

We stayed 6nights here during March spring 2014. We booked thru Expedia. The price was really competitive. The location was not at the Hangzhou city center. It was not convenient at night as it is far from the eateries and shopping area. I like this hostel too because it juz beside the beautiful west lake. We can explore the lake... More

It's within 5 to 10 mins walking distance to the Leifeng Pagoda and some garden & part of xihu. Most importantly 3-5 mins walk to the the bus stop(公交车) nearby. Because with a bus you can go further. No In-room wifi, you need to go to the lobby for strong wifi. There are many people sitting around the lobby, using... More

We stayed for two nights. Our room had a very horrible musty smell (which was not obvious at the beginning, I assume the room was good vented before we arrived). Staff is okay. Food is okay. Location at Westlake is very good. Warning for light sleepers: there may be playing kindergarten children from 07:30. Wifi in lobby only.

If you choose to stay near the west lake, the location is unbeatable. Across the street is Leifeng pagoda area, and not far is entrance to Su Causeway for a nice stroll next to the west lake. Staffs were very friendly and helped us with directions to restaurant, buses to catch to the airport, etc. Hostel itself is cozy with... More

The hostel is located very near Xihu and Lei Feng Pagoda and the receptionists are polite and helpful. But this hostel is located in a narrow lane off Nanshan Road which is quite difficult to find and there are no restaurants nearby and it is quite far from town. Wifi is weak in the room and only strong at the... More

I booked the 6 bed dorm room. The room was quite small for 6 persons, and the door was broken. The bathroom is inside the room, that's a plus, but it was not very clean. However, the lobby is really cozy. You can use the WiFi (which only available in the lobby), watch movies, sit on sofa, and play the... More

The rooms were quiet as well as clean and the staff friendly with plenty of ideas for sightseeing. The location is not only close to the westlake but also next to a bus stop which takes people directly to the train station, the Six Harmonies Pagoda and the Lingyin temple and Buddha carvings. Just ask the staff to write down... More

located on a narrow lane near to the main road around westlake. Not so easy to find on the first. 3 minutes walking distance to westlake. Nice receptionist, we check in at around 12 midnight, staff are quite attentive as they already prepared the room and only ask for registration on the next morning. We enjoy the stay over there....
