This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I love this hostel!! such a great price value and the staff is super friendly! I paid 35RMB (about $5 USD) a night for a 4 female bed dorm. there is also a shower and bathroom inside the room.

the place seems very clean, housekeeping changes the sheets and comforter everyday!

also they provide free laundry!, what more could a traveler ask for?

I think the best thing about this place is the staff. I feel like they would go out of their way to help you. they also speak english very well, which is nice.

anyways, very clean very cheap and great staff! :D
