Cold place away from center Oct 11, 2016
This hostel is located in a residential area and building. It's an apartment converted into a hostel. Located away from the center, train station, etc. There are public buses to take you there. Center is about half an hour by foot.

Building doesn't look great, and elevator doors close very quickly, but once you enter the hostel you find yourself in a very nicely decorated place. It has typical Tibetan decorations, and gives the place a special feeling. However, this is the only think I liked about this place.

It was cold, and the heat was not working. They give you lots of duvets, but it was so cold. Beds are hard, but that's typical for China.

There are several rooms with dorm beds, at least four that I can remember. Also, couple of private rooms. Private rooms had nice sun room with arm chairs. Dorm rooms had no lockers to store your things.

This place, with all the beds, I guess somewhere 20 to 30, has only one bathroom with shower, and one bathroom without shower. I can't imagine the wait. It's crazy. Besides, the shower had very low water pressure, so it takes forever to shower.

The guy at the reception was sort of cold, just like the place. He spoke excellent English, and always smiled, but somehow I didn't feel very welcome.

He charged extra for calling a cab.

There is a big terrace, but we had bad weather so didn't get to enjoy it.

WiFi worked fine.
