Pros: Friendly and English speaking staffs. They booked trip for me to the Great wall which was really great. Very close the subway station. There were lots of tourists in the hostel and I managed to make friends with many of them. Beds are nice and clean. Cons: The toilets are not clean sometime, and the numbers of toilets are... More

I was in a private bedroom with private bathroom... The room was dark, the bed not so comfortable and the bathroom a mess. The room service did not take out the trash! What I liked was the front desk... They were all very helpful. Also... NO RESTAURANT.

We stayed in 3 different hostels in Beijing and this one was the best. Everything is clean, there is no noise, the staff is very nice and helpful and the location is very good as well. We highly recommend this hostel when you are visiting Beijing.

Hostel is grand. Nothing special. Good location next to the metro station, some great restaurants and a micro brewery is a 2 minute walk away (if you love craft beers). Staff are friendly. Rooms were a bit cold in the evening and the shared bathrooms was a little too far away from our dorm for my liking. As far said... More

I like my bar as much as the next person but I was worried it would be very noisy at night. Well, currently it is out of action , as is the kitchen. I had a deluxe room which was very nice, bed firm, not hard. Large tv, but no English channels. Lovely helpful girls at reception. 5 mins walk... More

You get a towel, a locker, and a bed with a curtain. Not too crowded, but not spacious. At night time they dont speak english, so figure things out during the day. Breakfast is not included, but for $3 or $4 dollars they can make a decent one. And they have coffee, which at times is difficult to get in... More

A pleasant place to stay in Beijing. In the middle of a hutong area you can breathe a real chinese atmosphere. The courtyard of the hostel is beautiful, our private room was small but confortable. Subway is very close. But what I appreciate a lot was the reception desk: the two girls are very kind, they speak english and helped... More

Negative things: There are only two showers and two toilets for all the hostel and it was so busy. They asked for 100y deposit to pay in cash in order to have the key, and it's not mentioned on booking. A little bit expensive for the quality. Positive things: Good location and friendly staff. The room and the showers were... More
