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.

I don’t usually review hostels if I don’t sleep there but in this case I was so glad I found this hostel that I’m going to do it anyway: I had booked a (K) overnight train from the old Huangshan station, everyone presumes you need Huangshan north high speed railway station. Last bus there (i.e. to the high speed station) from Tangkou town went at 18.00 (also at 17.20 and 17.40) for the north station I took local bus 21 which connects both train stations, takes quite a while. Area around the old train station was pretty dark and deserted, I was very happy I spotted Koala hostel where I spent a couple of hours, had a nice curry dinner and some beers in their comfortable bar/common area. The experience on the K trains was rather bad: unfriendly staff and very dirty.

Stayed here for 2 nights in July, easy to find from the bus stop. Staff were very helpful and accommodating - checked in late at night, and they went through the mountain and how to get there etc (there is a puppy that roams about downstairs so this might not be the place for you if you don’t like dogs) When booking, there was a note that said the hostel provided a shuttle to mount huangshan - this is not true. You have to cross the road to the train station and get a shuttle from there. En-suite wasn’t very nice - squat toilet didn’t bother me (it is China!) but the shower is practically on top of the toilet which isn’t very nice. Bit of a long walk to the old street but if you’re just going to huangshan you can’t fault the location. Overall, would stay again.

This hostel has lovely staff who are super friendly and happy to help out when they can. They helped some other guests order delivery and can offer handy hints for getting around and where to find the best convenience stores. The hostel is tidy and clean. They have a very eclectic feel, with paintings on the walls, knick knacks on the shelves and window ledges. They have an extensive amount of reading material on offer and a very chilled common area. Each floor has a quiet spot to hang out, and western bathrooms if the squatties still worry you. The rooms are clean and tidy. There is plenty of space to lock away your luggage and the bunks have curtains - a must if you want some privacy or just want to make getting dressed and sleeping less of a public affair. Each bunk has a light and wall plug. There is a long shelf next to each bed wide enough to store phone, wallet, etc on. The internet is strong and free. Just a note: The hostel is located next to Huangshan Railway Station. When you book tickets to make sure you book for this station. There is another station to the north about a 20min taxi from the hostel. The taxi cost me about CNY45 (but it was a national holiday when I arrived). The station to the north is where most of the G class bullet trains come in - especially if you are traveling from Beijing.

We didn't actually sleep in the hostel, so couldn't say anything about the rooms or beds. We just walked in to ask directions to our own hotel that we had difficulty to find. They were so friendly we decided to come back the day after, to ask if it was possible to use their laundry service because our own charged too much. They helped us with it, and we got to do our laundry for a really fair price. The staff is really friendly, so we decided to leave a good review! :)

THEY HAVE THE COMFIEST BEDS IN CHINA!!! This hostel was an oasis for us! When we got off the train (11.30pm), we had no idea where we would sleep. We rocked up randomly and immediately felt so much love by the staff! Everyone is super friendly and accommodating (for English speakers, this is a great one). Everything is super clean and the atmosphere feels like home. SO GOOD! 很好

Practical place near the train station and buses so that it's easy to go around. But you will have to take a bus to go to the city centre for restaurants and drinks. I have to mention that the staff is really not friendly and barely speak English. As for the rooms, I had 2 big cockroaches in it!

The location isn't the most attractive, but it is conveniently close to the station. The rooms are nice and clean. The staff are very helpful. the food and drinks are reasonably priced in the chilled out common area.

Okay the hostel is very near the train station easily within walking distance. However, to get to huangshan will require a early morning bus trip which the hostel can arrange for you. They have an interesting way of decorating the place because traveler have written all over the walls here. Had to walk a little way to find the street food vendors, but there was a decent grocery store that required a 1/4 mile walk.

i stayed here in a six person female dorm at the start of my epic two month trip around china. it's decent, basic and very average. i'd only recommend this if you have an early train to catch the next because it's so close to the train station. more atmospheric and fun hostels are in the old town region. koala hostel is basically on a anonymous strip of auto/motorbike repair shops. there's a decent grocery store nearby, that's it for activities. i broke the sink here (knob fell off) and there was only a squat toilet in my dorm. if you stay here, try the "roasted bowel" they have on their menu and let me know how it is. :D
