Okay so, I have really mixed feelings about this hostel. No doubt about the fact that it's very very dirty. I stayed in a double room for 4 nights. The toilet was so dirty I went to buy my own bleach and gave it a good scrub. It is situated in the hutong, people call it a traditional area but... More

Oh, and a really cute small cat. The... More

Bad points: Room had not been cleaned, bedside table had bit of rubble on it and cigarette butt in the shower room. Hot water only lasted for 5 mins as it... More

The hostel is OK, it's fairly standard and it's in a good location - you can walk to Wangfujing from here and get around fairly easily. There's definitely no frills - it's cheap and the rooms are big but the people really made it for us - local people staying at the hostel at the time - cooked us dinner,... More

First it is important to remember that hostel stay is not like hotel stay. I took a group of about 15 high school and college students for a cultural experience in Beijing for about 10 days. The Sweet Garden Hostel is rich in culture is located in a pretty good location in the city. the little alley way that you... More
