I had a great time in this little courtyard hostel in the middle of beijing. This place is in one of the many Hutongs, and the relaxing atmosphere really gives you a chance to relax from the stress that comes from being in a mega city like Beijing.
The rooms were spacious, there was some dirt and hairs on the floor, but I guess that's not that special in a hostel, especially since I only paid 10€ per night. Also the bathrooms were very simple but I got used to that pretty quickly. The beds are extremely comfortable!!!
But what made this hostel so special for me, was first of all the amazing staff. Rain and his colleagues are so incredibly friendly and they Really go out of their way to make you feel welcome and fulfill your every need.
The other special thing is the great people you can meet there. I met people from almost everywhere china (of course), Israel, japan, holland, France! You just sit down in the cozy courtyard and there's almost always someone asking if you want a beer and you just start talking.
It might not be the most luxurious hostel, but the people in it and the relaxing location make it an incredible place to stay! I've never experienced being that welcome in a hostel.
Greetings to Rain, Amy, Johann, Mitsuo and Norman!
