Gulangyu International Youth Hostel: the only place that you can meet other travelers

The main problem in China is most of the guesthouses don't provide areas for common usage so it might not be possible to meet and get socialized with the other travelers.Gulangyu hostel is a great place to met the others.The staff is very helpful and both rooms and dorms are very clean.there is a small but a nice garden where you can enjoy your drinks or food.there is a kitchen where each cook costs 10 yuan and there are some western food on their menu which is quite expensive in comparison to the prices in China.
even there is not a bar they sell beer and some spirit but you can also simply buy your beer from the market and enjoy in the garden.There is no bar and only 2 cafes which are quite expensive for budget travelers on the island so the small garden of the hostel seems the best place to have a drink
I would recommend this place for the backpackers and the mid range travelers as the dorms are cheap and convienent for the backpackers mid-range travelers can enjoy the single or double suits
which offers more than a budget hotel

there is 10% discount for the customers who hold an International Hosteling Membership card

There is an internet access which you can not easily find neither in Xiamen nor Gulangyu
There is Laundry which costs you 5 yuan per a usage of the 5kg machine which the other places ask 3 yuan per piece
There is a video and TV room where there is choice of more than 100 DVDs and Chinese tv chanels
There is a reading room
There is a peaceful garden which can turn to a party place or a playground after a few beers

Harbour Bay Hotel: Good location and comfortable

This is a new hotel. Very clean. Large rooms. Nice views of the sea and the harbour. 10 min. walk from the Gulangyu ferry and and the colonial town. Breakfast is delicious. We enjoyed our stay. The hotel was recommended by another one that was full.
It is not mentioned on traditional guidebooks (Let's go; Lonely Planet).

Location and comfort. Helpful and smiling staff.

Wai(4) Mao(4) hotel: 3 star hotel

Hotel located at hu bin bei lu which is next to sofitel Xiamen. Hotel room is quite small. did not really take note of the hotel facilities as i only stayed for 1 night. Though the hotel tariff states 500rmb, always remember to bargain. we stayed there for 250rmb including breakfast. But the breakfast are quite lousy.

tried looking around the hotel for breakfast restaurant, but it seems that there are no restaurants open for breakfast.

Just on the left of this hotel, there is a tour agency if u want to book any tour trip to other parts of china. for me, i booked a trip to wuyishan which is consider average price. but the lady is very friendly.

Hu Bin Da (Lakeside Big Hotel): Cheap hotel in Xiamen

Only 187 RMB per night; No bellboys! And the elevator is on the second floor. So we had to carry our heavy baggage up the stairs.

Crowne Plaza Paragon Hotel: Great service and very reasonable price

I booked a twin room with an extra bed via www.hotels.com.
Everything was prepared including a very comfortable extra bed already made up in the room. Impressive as usually we have to wait for staff to find, trolley and make up the bed. The hotel was extremely comfortable and whilst we didn't have the breakfast included, a Starbucks is attached to the hotel so we could save a little cash here.
Swimming pool is great as are the landscaping for a city centre hotel.
Well done Crowne Plaza!

Loved the pillow menu!

Moshixiaozhu Hostel: Budget Accomodation in Gulangyu

Moshixiaozhu Hostel is a small local hostel or Guesthouse in Gulangyu. It is located Guxin Road, nearby the organ museum. It provides clean budget accommodation in Gulangyu. It comes with single or double rooms with shared bath, also rooms with attached bathroom. Most of the rooms have limited space. Most of the budget rooms do not have windows.

Its location is away from shops and restaurants, so it is quiet, but there are not enough street lights in the alley to the hostel so it is dark after 7pm.

This is a great budget accommodation option in Gulangyu as others are ranging from fancy to luxury price tags.

I booked this hostel through www.elong.net.. Y98 per night, a single bed with shared bath. The bathroom is located near the front desk.

Yu Lu Fei International Youth Hostel: YHA in Gulangyu

This is the only YHA in the Island of Gulangyu. I visited this Youth Hostel because it is nearby where I stayed. It is a three-storey villa with the dorm rooms (4,6 8 beds) and different classical designed Mediterranean style rooms with attached baths. Dorm room is starting from Y60 (US10).

I think this might be a great place to stay if you plan to meet other travelers, and it is one of the best budget options in Gulangyu.

It is nearby the organ museum, in a quiet neighborhood.
