Shenzhen Loft Youth Hostel.
The Shenzhen International LOFT Youth Hostel has a good reputation as a good place for clean, convenient, simple accommodation. It is in the very pleasant garden area of Overseas Chinese Town, next to an Art Centre. The Youth Hostel is inside the Creation and Art Park where disused factory buildings have been converted to have a renewed life as centres of art and design.
The hostel building used to be a standard building for housing factory workers but has been renovated in a contemporary style. Some rooms have wall to ceiling glass windows and half of the rooms are in Japanese tatami style.
Rates are very reasonable and single rooms, twin rooms and family rooms are available with a self-service kitchen.
The proximity to the Qiao Cheng Dong metro station means transport is easily available to other parts of Shenzhen and the Qiao Cheng Dong area is close to many tourism places such as Windows of the World and the other theme parks, together with art galleries, scenic paths for walking and places to eat.
