We stayed for 4 days. It located 5 mins from Dongsi subway station, which is very convenient for going to /from airport, and alos easy to hail a taxi from the road next to the hotel. Many restaurants besides the hostel. We tried one that is just beside the hostel, and not bad at all ! Good price and great... More

Staff were not so friendly with the exception of the 2 ones that works in the cafe (a man and a woman)! I woke up several times with the hostel staff screaming outside my window, opened it and asked them to make silence as I was sleeping (it was late near midnight) but after a couple minutes they started shouting...

Good location, near shopping, 15 min walking distant from Wangfujing, near metrostation, surrounded by restaurants, friendly hotel staff, especially Hardy which helps us to write in Chinese what we want to eat (people understand only in Chinese). At the front desk of the hostel you will find Jack (of China Travel Service). He speaks good English and is very helpful... More

It was near the subway station,DOngsi Station. It will only take less than 5 minutes to reach the subway. When you get tired from a long-day of sightseeing, then you can easily get to your hostel and rest.Also, the place was clean. I would always forget to arrange my slippers when I leave the room, and when I came back... More

The hotel is clean is good. Staff are speaks English efficiently. Service are wonderful except to one guy on the front desk. He seems arrogant and do not know what is a good customer service. I do not know if it is a what sort of "MAINLAND CHINESE CULTURE", but I doubt, since other Chinese are very hospitable and kind.... More

We stayed at this hotel for about 10 days during my 3 week visit to Beijing last year and it was a pleasant stay. We were only looking for somewhere to sleep and shower so I chose this place for its rate and location. The rooms were clean (stayed in two different rooms) containing two single beds, an unusually spacious... More

In this hostel you can find the opportunity to have a clean and modern room for a very decent price. The location is in a nice hutong street, close to metro station and forbidden city, right in the center. The restaurant beside the entrance offer very good food at chinese rates. The more positive point is the cleaness, as the... More

We stayed at Hostel 161 for a total of 3 nights. My boyfriend was studying in Beijing for the summer and checked out a few other places before deciding on this hostel for when I came to visit at the end of the summer. As a result, we already knew that we liked the rooms before we stayed there. They... More

I had 2 nights stay there and what disappointing me was the limited bathroom facility there. They only have 1 shower room in this entire hostel which to be shared by all rooms from four floors. Also could heard people closing door loudly from inside my room. However, this hostel is near to dongsi station and is within a few... More
