Add:22 Zhongshan Rd M.
Previously tucked away on a hill slope near Hefang Street, a year ago Wushanyi youth hostel moved to the Royal Street of the Southern Song Dynasty, becoming one of the few youth hostels in the city close to the railway station and West Lake.
The hostel is a neat property combining a Chinese exterior and a Western interior. The first floor is a spacious lobby, in green-and-white decor, with cozy chairs and public computers and a wall covered with train tickets, scenic area entrance tickets and postcards sent from old customers.
The lobby has a restaurant that provides Western dishes, and next to it is a snooker room.
Reception staff speak functional English and free wifi is available in the shared dorms and communal areas.
