Quiet, Safe, and Social Hostels in Suzhou, China

Quiet, Safe, and Social Hostels in Suzhou, China
Suzhou: a city of canals and history. Worth a visit of at least a few days, Suzhou is an important historical city as it was home to the Wu kingdom. Various gardens and historic buildings line the plethora of canals that stretch out from the main river, adding to the vibrant economic and cultural atmosphere of the city.

The hostels we've listed here are all near the Old Town area and provide guests with comfortable places to stay in charming locations. The down side of historical buildings is often the older facilities, especially the bathrooms, so be warned that with such historic charm comes the price of non-charming other things. But the hostels make up for that in other areas, so give them a good look and then make your decision.

No.28 Pingjiang Road, Suzhou
This very charming hostel is set in a historic building with plenty of historical features. It’s worth the price of staying here just to see the place. The location is also perfect, as it is set on an old canal in the middle of the city. Being close to public transportation options and shops and restaurants, you really can’t go wrong here.

Private rooms and dorms are available, both with and without ensuite bathrooms. The rooms are decorated perfectly. (A female-only dorm is available.) Dorm bunks have outlet plugs, reading lights and plenty of space for your belongings.

The common areas are also very nice. Several small courtyards and a large lounge area in the front are great places to relax. A shared kitchen is available for those wishing to provide their own meals. As meals are not served onsite, guests will have to look elsewhere for food, but restaurants and supermarkets are nearby.

Laundry, Wi-Fi, and other typical amenities are available as well.

Reviews from previous guests highlight the terrific location in Old Town, the charming building, and the comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. The feel is said to be more of a boutique hotel with dorms than a large hostel.
