Cheap hostel and perfect location in the old town. However, some of the staff were very rude. We met two different girls in the reception desk that spoke good English but they were totally unwilling to help us. We felt that we bothered them each time we asked a question (one of them would'nt look up from her phone while...

Nice quite night's sleep (though the hostel felt empty). Wifi worked better than at most hostels in China. Our room had a mouldy smell and some floor boards under the carpet-tiles were breaking through. The place needs a renovation. We were happy to find that the hostel accepts credit cards.

Hostel is located in the centre of old street in the city, very convenient for a stopover if you are preparing to go to huangshan on the next day. You can check out in the morning and leave you luggage with the counter, they are very friendly and helpful. Hostel rooms are standard but showering facilities are very clean and...

Ancient Town Youth Hostel was really comfortable, with an outdoor under cover smoking area and a "games area" on the 3rd floor, and a fabulous funky little bar on the ground floor! Smooth tunes and smooth Rum made us all feel VERY comfortable. Roasted peanuts were a nice bar snack surprise! The food here was also really good for a...

As central to atmospheric albeit touristy Old Street as you'll get. Chilled out common area on 3rd floor, indoors and out; ping-pong, pool tables there too; dorms comfy enough, balconies. Staff are lovely. After climbing the Mountain, missed last bus back from Tangkou (4.30pm not 5.30), they just released the night I'd booked and carried it forward to the following...

Stayed for 2 nights to visit MT. huangshan. You can book a chinese spoken tour at the hostel or get a bus to the mountain ( one way ) Friendly staff that speaks some kind of english. Clean place, hard beds and thin walls. They have a bar where you can get some food. The price is ok. Boring city,...

Absolutely loved this place! Felt just at home staying here. Movie room, recreation room (table tennis and billiards) and lots of lounge space. Staff were so sweet, especially the ladies at the front desk... And they speak a decent level of English. In a great spot right next to the old street. The only negative thing I have to say...

Ancient Town is a nice hostel located on Haungshan's Old Street. It is a good location with some good restaurants and shopping nearby. Staff was very helpful and spoke english well. Tom who usually works in the bar is especially helpful at booking accommodation on top of Mt. Huangshan. Stayed in an all girls dorm which wasn't too bad. Room...

This hostel is great. They've made a real effort with the decor, there are loads of little corners where you can go and hide away with a book or some friends and some beer. The four floors are organised so that there are several balconies where you can sit in the evening and watch the bustling street below. The staff...

Unable to find English speaking help getting transport, went to the Ancient Town Youth Hostel and met Murphy! She was so great securing a taxi to Huangshan Airport for us. Her cheerful and perfect English was a breath of fresh air when we needed friendly help. So if you are in the area say hi to Murphy and let her...

“We had a private room on the 4th floor with a separate bathroom, apparently some rooms have a shower cabin in the room which may not be the best thing.”
