Yes!

I recently stayed at a lovely hostel on Pingjiang Lu called the Mingtown Backpackers. You can search for it on hostelbookers.com or hostelworld.com.

It's cheap, pretty central to town and it's along a really quaint cobbled street next to a canal. The only downside is the bathrooms and toilets are quite cramped and have no windows so get a bit sweaty. Also they keep all the windows open so expect mosquitoes!

But apart from that, a really nice place to stay (and cheap - 50 RMB for a dorm bed or 120 RMB for a double room)

Have fun in Suzhou!

You could also try Joya International Youth Hostel in Suzhou's old town. Its biggest appeal is the fact that it's housed in a nice looking tradtional Chinese building. It's also close to the canal and the train station so quite convenient. Details below.

A:A few years ago, Filipno teachers were beginning to find acceptance in training schools. I think there were special requirements for them to legally get to teach in China. I know that many Filipino teachers found their way into training schools in the southern regions of China.  I do not think they get the same salary as a typical foreigner teacher from a western nation. The benefits are not as numerous too. They are asked to work longer hours. Basically, they are seen as cheap labor, compared to the standard ESL teacher. I have heard of some manipulation of visas and holding of passports. In other words, they are often treated as third-class citizens.  I know of one training school in South China that treats Filipinos very well, but it seems to be an exception than the norm. Extremem caution and due diligence is required for these teachers.  -- nashboroguy
