Good place to stay in Xiamen, takes foreigners, nice area with good food and vibe.
The hostel is really basic, a bit shabby, but nice. The rooms could have cleaner and could need a renovation. The bathrooms are Chinese with squatting toilets with the shower above.
The staff was super friendly and helpful. The area of the hostel is really nice with good and cheap food. The location of the hostel is very good, a bit outside the city but right next to a bus stop. It's close to the beach as well. When arriving it can be a bit tricky to find, so accept their offer to pick you up the first time. After that it's no problem. You can wash your clothes there for free.

Friendly, helpful staff. Very close to the bus route and any shops around to get street food from. Very good location.

Cheap eats and less touristy.
WiFi could be better. If you have bad luck, the trip to/from the city can take up to an hour during peak traffic hours (maybe 15 to 20 mins if traffic is normal), so avoid these times and you are fine.
Really nice hostel next to the campus of Xiamen. This means cheap and good food options around the hostel. Hostel staff is nice and helpful and there is a nice courtyard (in winter it may be a little bit to cold to sit there). Good and relaxed atmosphere. Three buses are going to the city centre.

It's very hard to find. I took a taxi and the driver couldn't find it. There is no sign at all. If you can't call the staff you should ask someone for help. My bathroom was next to a gym. It was a little bit noisy.
The staff was very nice and friendly. The room was okay. Nothing special, a normal dorm. The bathroom was okay too.

nothing but it is a little far off but anyway the bus to the city center is in front of the house. So 1 yuan and you are in the center 15 min later :)
atmosphere, staff, common area, close to the beach

In conclusion I can surely say that the hostel is excellent.
The only little problem was wifi hadn't been stable especially in the evenings.
I stayed in this hostel almost 23 days.Firstly I would like to say that the personal was very kind and helpful.They did everything for the comfort of the guests. Special thanks to Malu and Tabi, especially for Malu for her care and giving me needed medicine when I was sick. And with Tabi also we had a great time. He offered me Chinese beer and local wine. That was really good. I appreciate that. And what about the property, it is located in very good place. Bus stop was very near and there are many local restaurants including halal food and as well as many shops and of course street food around. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Each room has an air conditioner.

Nice location, helpful staff, but too expensive for almost no facilities.
The facilities in the dorms (I stayed in a 4p-female dorm) are very poor; no bed light, no decent mattress, no lockers, no ladder to the upper bunk, no curtain, no storage space. Almost never somebody at reception. Bad internet connection. After check out you can not leave property without a key to the front door. No free water. No secure luggage storage after check out. This place has so much potential but vibe and facilities are lacking. The price is way too high for what you get. Pay a little more and you find a nice private room elsewhere.
The location is very nice; away from the city center but close to the beach, public transport and lot's of shops/restaurants around. The couple running the place speak decent English and are very helpful. The hostel has some nice common areas.

Really not good
The picture looks too great compare to the reality, the house is not a house but a prefab in plastic with zero insulation, it was smelling piss. We choose the "suite" expecting something correct.. it was worth than anything especially when you expect a little bit of comfort. The host could speak good English but really not helpful concerning a trip to the Tulou. To finish she couldn't even offer us a coffee on a morning and there is no coffee shop around. For 70 euros i was expecting a little bit more. i definitely don't recomand this place sorry.
Maybe the little charm of the courtyard

The bathroom maybe too small and not clean every day.
Nice welcoming ;) good point of wiew on the top. Nice shared spaces

The mosquito nets before the windows were broken. It might be because I was the only (foreign) guest a the time, but it felt more like a very basic hotel than a "backpackers hostel"
Relatively spacious room. Quiet area.
