Staff were friendly and manage to re-order their bookings to accommodate an extra person in our party. Ultimately, you get what you pay for. It's just a bed. Drinks are cheap. Location is excellent. Definitely recommend this hostel.

Don't stay here! When we complained to the staff that we had bugs running around on our bed, their response was "oh, they are just small bugs. No one has complained before. No one cares." Do yourselves a favor and don't stay here.

We booked online after reading positive reviews. Email communication was slow with the hostel but they did reply. We got to the hostel and the reception area looked OK, they did food and had a little bar area. I think we were ripped off booking train tickets through the hostel as we were charged £4 each extra for them to... More

A surprising find close to the centre of Beijing, sights and subway. Stayed here for two nights with my girlfriend and both thought it great. Excellent location, friendly staff, clean rooms, nice place to stay. Highly recommended.

The end of February we stayed for several nights in this hostel, perfectly located just south of Tiananmensquare, closeby to some unrenovated beautiful hutongs. The staff and owners were excellent and very helpfull and their child was adorable. We hope they can manage to renovate the old courtyard-houses. They are beautiful. Good breakfast as well!!!

Comfy and everything you need is there. Nice hot showers! Some of the staff are extremely helpful. Location is good. It seemed slightly lacking in atmosphere when I was there, but I wasn't there for very long.

I stayed in one of the dorm rooms during a short weekend visit to Beijing. The hostel is greatly located for sights in the centre - especially Tienanmen Square and onto Forbidden Palace. The metro station is less than 10 minutes walk away, giving you connection to the rest of the city. There are quite a few snack places/shops along... More

Spent 4 nights here during the middle of Oct 2012. First night was in a private room with no bathroom (i.e. had to use shared bathroom), other nights was in a private room with dedicated bathroom. Hostel rooms are basic, but completely liveable, especially the one with a private bathroom. Having to go outside through a courtyard to get to... More

The location of this hostel is quite convenient, nearly at the center of Beijing and a short walk from a metro (subway) station. Many of the top sights are within walking distance. My friend and I stayed in one of the private rooms without an ensuite bath, so we shared the common bath facilities. The room was dingy, and the... More

“Not about the room, but if you use public transport go to Qianmen station, take Exit C, use the underbridge, cross the croad and keep walking for a little while. The hostel is on the right hand side opposite McDonalds.. Took me a while to find it ;)”
