The staff were very helpful and spoke good english. The room was basic but clean, quite and comfortable. The attached restaurant was good and there was also a roof top terrace, though it was a little chilly to sit out much in March. More atmosphere than a regular hotel and right in the middle of an interesting hutong. Also close... More

This hostel leaves other hotels (and many hostels) slouching in its wake - the rooms were spotless, and stylishly decorated, and in a building in one of the old hutongs. There's a rooftop bar/terrace, a cosy lounge area for guests, and a cafe that did a really tasty breakfast. Laundry was cheap and quickly done, and there was lots of... More

If character is what you're after, then Peking is for you. The hostel is located on Nanluogu, in one of Beijing's most charming and popular "hutongs" (the city's iconic alleyway networks). The hostel is a quick 5 minute walk to the subway, or a 30 minute walk to some of Beijing's must-see landmarks (The Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, etc). Cabs... More

Though I did not have the privilege to stay in its hostel, had a great time having a break in it's very nice café. The waffles are not too bad while it's brew of coffee is excellent!. The ambience is one of cosiness, trendy, nature & friendly. It's a place for a nice chat or get together for a group... More

This place by far is one of the best places we have stayed in our trip. Located in the middle of the Hutongs, great location close to the Line 6 Beijing metro. In the morning the place is quiet and invites to reflection and comes to a vibrant live as the hours pass. But the best of this hotel is... More

The location of the hostel is great, in the middle of the hutong area with a lot of restaurants and bars. Close to the subwaystation. Rooms are spacious and clean and the bathrooms are brand new. Breakfast is expensive, but in the same street are a lot of places to get breakfast. They can arrange tours to the great wall... More

We travelled here for 2 nights with our 1.5-year-old daughter and enjoyed our stay. The location in the hutong was nice, although it's a bit of a walk from the main road where the taxi drops you off. Being near the tourist street was nice, but it was VERY busy and a bit noisy. Overall, the positives were: - Beautiful... More

Had 2 really nice nights here. Thought we'd booked an 8 bed room but ended up in a 5 bed, was good but not quite like the pictures wed seen online. I had an almost attic/loft space type bed, which I loved and was very comfy but did have to kind of climb over someone else's bunk to get in.... More

You will love this Hostel / Hotel, the area has a lot of options to see, eat, enjoy, and is very close to the Ⓜ station. Very clean, good food, drinks and music. The staff really wants to make you feel comfortable even though just a few speaks English.
