This hostel is located in a great spot for tourists being near a subway station and a few major attractions. The hostel itself is located inside a fairly traditional looking hutong where cars are not allowed (although I did still see cars every now and then driving through). Although our taxi driver from the airport had likely never spoken a word of English in his life we had the address printed out in Chinese and he got us there with no trouble.
The staff consists of a bunch of cute Chinese girls who all speak English and are very friendly and helpful. When we arrived we found the lock on our door was broken. We told one of the girls about the problem, some men immediately arrived and started fixing the lock. The staff will also help you book tours. I was happy that the tour we booked through happy dragon did not include factory visits, which is a scam that is all to common in asia.
The girls also run a restaurant/bar/cafe type establishment in the courtyard. The meals are good and priced well.
