Lucky Family Hostel
Ranked #21 of 982 Speciality Lodging in Beijing
Reviewed 15 July 2017 via mobile

The room was okay, and clean when i first checked in. They didnt clean the room daily though, only cleared the dustbin.i booked a single room with shared toilet. They only have 2 shared toilet in the whole hostel, 1 at each floor. The shared toilet at the 3rd floor is a bit dirty, but manageable until one of the staff pooped in the toilet and didnt inform me that the flush is broken. So i kinda saw the poo floating inside and had to move to the other toilet to take my shower. The location of this hostel is at exit B of zhangzhizhonglu station, and take a 6-8 mins walk from there. There is 2 halal restaurants around the area, so its convenient for muslims.

After just 8 nights in the hostel, I have already got the feeling that it’s my new home. The staff members are extremely friendly and always ready to solve any of your problems. They are also up to have a nice conversation with you any part of the day just as well as the other guests are. Lucky Family Hostel is located within a nice hutong area which gives you the perfect opportunity to experience the locals’ everyday life.

In case some of the issues cannot be solved easily by the receptionists, the manager is definitely your man. He is always there for you and he is very much willing to give you much more than 100%.

While staying in Beijing, I have only used the bike borrowed from the Hostel and I have managed to visit even the outer side of Beijing easily(over the 4th ring road). The hostel is pretty much providing a central location and even though I haven't used any, good public transport options are also available just within 2 mins walk.

I have moved around pretty much a lot during my stay within the hostel, so I have experienced quite a variety of rooms from the single bedroom to the 4 bedroom ones. Tidiness would describe all the types of living areas in the hostel thanks to the kind and nice cleaning ladies of the place.

My conclusion would be that you get much more than what you pay for in this hostel. I really recommend giving this place a chance. I have never felt so welcome in any of the hostels/hotels that I have visited before. I am really thanking the staff members for creating such an unforgettable experience for me and I am sure that whenever I visit Beijing, I will always stay at Lucky Family Hostel, just so that I can feel like part of the family all over again! ;)

Standard small hostel room with private bath. Clean with good breakfast options and very close to subway. We booked a tour with them to the Wall that we were very happy with. A bus picked us up at the subway station full of other foreigners. The tour included a typical decent lunch.

During my stay in Beijing they were really helpful. Always wrote information in English and helped us to know how to go to places. Our room were clean and the atmosphere of the place was great. Met good people there. And location is really good.

It is a very nice hotel. The room is clean. The hotel serves affordable and delicious food. The staffs are approachable. The location of the hotel is 5 minute walk to the nearest subway station. We enjoyed our stay in this hotel.

The hostel was generally clean and the staff was courteous. However, the bathroom arrangement left a lot to be desired. The shower and toilet were accessible from the room, perhaps convenient but you could hear everything happening. Or you'd be waking up your roommates if you woke up and needed to get ready before them (the sink is inside the bunk room). Also, several areas in the hostel had a rather undesirable smell (the shower smelled of urine as did the walkway to our room). I enjoyed the location. Staying in the hutongs was peaceful and provided quick access to the subway. Overall, it was an acceptable hostel but I would probably stay elsewhere in Beijing knowing that for a just a few more RMB I'd be a little more comfortable.

Very close to metro and easy to find. English of staff is best I've encountered in Beijing. Cleanliness is what you would expect for the low price and courtyard smelled but the room did not, but every amenity you could realistically expect from a cheap hostel they provide. Would recommend.
