Hotel situation excellent. Great assistance from Reception as could speak in English. A small restaurant which is not bad, you can at least have a good breakfast and sandwiches etc available all day. Room very very small, two persons cannot move freely. Place only for beds. The toilet was always blocked. The shower is foud next to toilet seat, so when you are having your shower the entire bathroom get wet. No space to put your suitcase, no wardrobe nothing. The corridors have carpet which look very old and dusty. We stayed for 4 nights and could mange, if more that that impossible.

Room Tip: Choose a room on ground floor with windows.

Stayed in a 6 bed dorm. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. Most had decent English and if not there was normally someone nearby who did. You can book tours from reception and there's free wifi which worked well for me.

The room I was in didn't have any windows and the beds were quite hard so I'd recommend bringing a sleeping bag or something to make it a bit more comfortable. Bathroom was like any other I've had in Asia (aside from hotels I've been in), wet. But the staff dry it out when they clean the room every day and hey at least there's a western toilet :)

Good for a leave in the morning come back at night sort of traveller.

There was just a short walk to many attraction. The room was small and almost clean. There was room with and without window. We wanted one with window, BUT the window was indoor. Turned towards the corridor. Not exactly what we had ordered.
One of the receptionist was friendly, but otherwise the staff was rude.

Location is obviously convenient.
We got (by chance?) a kind staff from bar to reception desk. Good place.
Rooms are small but what do you except for this location and cost.
Will recommend to any travelers not looking for 5 stars.

Remember to take the card from reception's desk because ALL taxi driver can't speak English. Location was fine, quite near (around 15 minutes at least) with subway (Tian'anmen East Station), but if you are carrying a heavy luggage then better to take a cab.
The receptionist was okay, kind of mind your own business person. You can booked a trip from here as well to few places for tour/visit (at table near entrance).
For the price you pay for a hostel in the center of Beijing with 'quite near' attraction places, then the condition of the room would be a bit compromise by the hostel operator. but for those traveler who leave in the morning and back late a night, just need a place to sleep then this place should be okay. At least you can recharge yourself here.
Overall it's quite okay, by the price, location and maybe a bit less in comforts..

Room Tip: Some room don't have windows.
