Hostel Old Observatory Reviews


Qingdao Observatory, the first contemporary observatory in China, is home of our youth hostel, which is situated on Mt. Observatory in the heart of Qingdao, it is a hidden gem from which to explore China's most vibrantl coastal city. It overlooks the Qingdao Bay, most hostel rooms have a panoramic view over the city's skyline. The national ground zero point for China's altitude is located right in front of the hostel; Many heritage buildings lie around the Old Observatory, a place to communicate with the history.
