Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Pros: Great location as its close to the Moon Pond but also not right in the noisy town centre; Hostel is in a traditional house and has a lot of character Cons: Staff can be friendlier, they didn't seem to care too much Cleanliness can be better especially in the bathroom It can also be a bit tricky to find, email them to ask for directions ahead of time if you want.

As me and two of my friends walked into this hostel we were amazed. the aesthetics of this place are amazing, I couldn't beleive what we walked into when we walked into the courtyard area, which is amazing to relax in. The room was great (we were in a 3 bed room) with a good ensuite and comfy beds, the 3rd bed up top is really cozy too. The staff were very kind and helpful, basically if you looking for a great quality, cheap, chilled place to stay for a few days, this is the one. If you get the chance, stay until a Sunday evening/night when all the tourists have left and the village starts winding down, its ridiculously peaceful.

If you're looking for a place of great Chinese history, beautiful, good food, a family vibe, good customer service, good internet and a place that is not crowded (almost impossible to find in China), this is a good place to go. If I return to anywhere around this area, I will make sure to return to this hostel. There weren't too many negatives, other than the owner has a lot of stuff so some areas of the hostel can look a bit cluttered; although, these areas are few and far between. This is a great hostel and the owner is very accommodating to show you around. He also makes tea and understand's the Chinese tea ceremony very well. Like another reviewer stated, it is a little hard to find, but so is most stuff in the town. Make sure to ask the owner or someone on staff to come and show you how to find your way to the hostel. Also, there are mosquitos everywhere, but this is not the hostels fault, and the hostel does provide things to combat the mosquitos. This is a quite hostel, but not the most quite place. If you want a nice, simple, hotel like experience, this is not the place. If you want a place with character, with guests around the age of 20-40, this is a great place to go. It still quiets down at night (Also something not found often at Chinese hostels), this is you place

Stayed here for two nights in a six bed dorm. Location would be tricky to find but we gave them a ring at the ticket office and someone came to meet us. Nice touch. The hostel itself is in an old house not far from the main drag, fantastic looking with real character and a beautiful courtyard. There's numerous nice seating areas. The only thing that really lets the place down is the cleanliness in the bathrooms. There's only two, and a toilet downstairs, but they are filthy. Also, there is no toilet paper provided, which I think is a bit tight. There's no food option, but there's plenty surrounding places to chose from. I enjoy a hard bed but this one may have been my limit. Pretty much like a wooden board. They say it's good for the back though! I feel a bit bad giving an average rating, but for 600 yuan p/n, I think it's about right. I liked this place, but reckon I'd check out others if I was to ever come back.

It has been a lovely stay in this Old House with wooden refurbished rooms. The courtyard could have been better taken care of, but it adds to its own "old" taste. The owner is friendly and helpful. It has been a great experience in rural China, altough Hong Cun is a major turistic destination.

If you want an "international" aka English-speaking hostel, well, they know about 5-10 words, so you might as well stay in a Chinese hotel: would be a LOT CHEAPER. They have no material on the village in English. No map (well, a tiny one on their card). It's location is just terrible: the other en of the village. Very hard to find. You'll definitely get lost. If you like animals, you got Mosquitos and spiders in the room. Filthy toilet seat. No hot water in shower. Weak wifi in room.

Common bathroom was absolutely disgusting and stinky ! Bed sheets were not changed and not clean. It smells pi everywhere. Ok the building and the location are great but it was so dirty and stinky that we really felt bad here. Morover the staff was not so friendly and we had a hard time to find this place in the village. I do not recommend this place at all.
