****** It is not the price as shown on the international hostel website! They said they charge much higher price and we should refer to the China one instead of the international. After that they charge us double price and without a receipt ! No hot water supply. Really bad experience !! And the association should keep an eye on this hostel !

When we arrived they did not recognize our booking even though we had gone through hostel international. We were stuck in a room with another roommate which is not what we had requested. While we did have a personal shower and bathroom the bathroom stunk of sewage and the shower only trickled out warm water. I would not stay again, especially due to the lack of English skills among the staff, we had to rely on other travelers or translation applications since no one spoke English.
