Very Good!”
Our stay was okay. The location is near zhongshan walking street and zhanhei rd station (metro) and arport bus terminal (airport bus). We booked a twin bed room with no windows. Our room was clean. However, the CR does not have a door. It was only a shower curtain. The guys on the reception was very helpful! We dis not know any chinese thus we had a hard time communicating but they did their best to help us. The building was quite old though. Overall, it was a pleasant stay. 😊

clueless service, not that clean”
you're better off staying at a Chinese chain like hanting or 7 days. I asked about booking a tour. they pointed at a Chinese poster and said to call that phone number. so you get the same clueless and rude service that you'd get at a chain except with a dirty bathroom and long black hairs in your bed.

Youth hostel, China style ”
First ofF, I like Koala far better than nearby mid-range hotels because it's a real hostel, complete with wandering young people from all over the world who want to stay up late and drink beers and talk of their plans and dreams. This wonderful free-thinking vibe is common in other places, but not China. Rooms are acceptable, though my garden-level room just wouldn't put out hot water, only warm, which earns them a disappointing two stars on facilities. I would nearly say the same of the staff, but their friendliness almost makes up for their total lack of helpfulness on their city or its attractions. It's clean enough, sort of smells like young people in there. Hey, Chinese hotels are not at a high standard,so this counts as one of the best places I've stayed in a city.

2-Nights Stay in Xiamen”
Hostel is centrally located, but finding it for the first time a bit tricky - it is located behind PCD Stores along Zhongshan Pedestrian Street. To find it, you have to take a side street (facing Adidas), the entrance would be at the back. Hostel is quite nice and inexpensive. Hotel staff can communicate in English and I also appreciate that even if I arrived past 12am, there were staff who could help me with check-in. Basic room necessities are provided and bedding is quite comfortable.

It was a nice stay. We stayed for two nights. They provided a tour that we wanted to take and were helpful and honest about it. The room was descent. It could have been a little cleaner, but for the price and that it was a hostel, it was decent. Overall, not a bad place for a budget hostel.

Centrally located, air-con and 24 hour staff
The hostel is centrally located. It's a bit difficult to find as it's not really on the main street. The room is clean and you can check in 24 hours. The bathroom is small and stinks a bit and perhaps they should clean it more often.

Roughing it at Koala Hostel”
Terrible and disgusting. The sheets provided were covered in mouse feces and the staff did not provide me and my roommates with towels. They didn't even suggest a place where we could buy them. The bathroom never had soap and the floors were dirty. The only good thing was that it had met the basest requirements for life.

They had cold drinks
I've stayed in a decent number of hostels and this one was pretty bad. We stayed as a group so we booked multiple rooms. One of the rooms had rat feces on the bed. There were also no towels. Another room had insects crawling on the bed. Not bed bugs, but something else. I spent the whole night trying to kill these things. The bathrooms in the double rooms are see through which is just plain awkward. I don't expect a 5 star hotel but feces, insects and see through bathrooms? I'll pass.

Hostel which is good in every aspect”
location, cleanliness, atmosphere
It provides an economical place to stay at Xiamen, when compared to the goods and food sold nearby. It's clean and close to the busiest shopping zone. However, guests should aware that curtain instead of a normal door is used as the toilet door, which is quite cool when taking shower in winter time.
