I have lived in China for 4 years now, traveling around the country on my holidays. I have stayed in countless hostels in China and staying at Tianfu was a pleasant stay after being on the road for a week in Henan province. The past reviews weren't great, but they were also outdated so I rolled the dice and booked...

The front of the place is lovely, including the lobby. But get back to the rooms--it's a mess. We were told we had a private room. I guess they forgot about 1am, when an extra body showed up and lumbered into the room. The room had a large window on the hallway; and the lights in the hall ran on...

This past spring we had already been in China and stayed at other hostels and were happy 'roughing' it. But this was ridiculous. It would have been better to sleep in the lobby. We were used to and expected dust and dampness - but it is as if the owners didn't try or care. The location is great (plenty of...

We have been traveling in China for more than 8 months altogether and this Youth Hostel is definitely the worst we have seen in this country... as well as in whole South-East Asia! We are used to travel "budget" and to stay in youth hostels, in dorms and in double rooms. This time we booked a double room for 3...

This hostel was easy to get to from the bus station. It cost my friends and I 480RMB (extra 100RMB deposit) for two nights (total 4 people). When I arrived, the room was very damp from the shower because the vent in the bathroom does not work. I needed to change the sheets as soon as I was there. The...

We're not complaining about hard mattresses, long waits for hot water or bed linens not being changed daily. It's a hostel, it's China and we know what to expect. Nevertheless, when we stayed in a twin room at Kaifeng International Youth Hostel, it failed to please us in many ways! The place is rather dirty, starting from the yard which...

This is the only hostel in Kaifeng, so a little more pricey than others in China, but we werent dissapointed!! Ryan and his stall are all fantastic and really made us feel at home. Its hard to find anything to complain about... but a hot shower would have made this place even better!

The main advantage is that it's cheap - though it should be cheaper; the much nicer Yijia hostel in Luoyang is 25% cheaper. The entire place gives the impression that the Australian owner opened it not out of an interest in travelers or traveling but because he needed a job and it seemed easy, so everything seems to be about...

This is a centrally located (only about a ten to fifteen minute walk from the west bus station) and inexpensive hostel. The rooms were clean, but basic. The staff was friendly and most spoke good English. It is definitely not a four-star hotel, but the price is great, and it is a good place to meet other travelers. The Gulou...

We stayed in a dorm without window, with disgusting bathrooms (we could not even flush the toilets!). The water took at least 5 long minutes to heat up. Most of the staff could hardly speak english and were of very little help when we asked for travel advice (they handed us a photocopy of the Lonely Planet). I don't recommend...
