My husband and I stayed four nights at Lucky Family. Our cab dropped us, jet-lagged, at the entrance to the hutong in the dark and the rain. We were immediately met by a couple of friendly Aussies, "Are you going to Lucky Family?" They helped us with our bags, telling us how nice Lucky Family was. And they were right.... More

I stayed one night in the Lucky family hostel in Beijing in August 2013. Room/hostel/beds were very clean, A/C was good, lockers with keys are included. Price was cheap (something around USD 12 for a 4-bed mixed) Basic breakfast is included. The staff I experienced during my stay were very nice and helpful (not often the case in China). One... More

We stayed there for 3 nights. Everyone was very helpful and friendly, very sweet people. The hostel is very well located in a hutong, and only 5 mins or so walk from the metro station. We had a double en suite room, that was very clean and spacious enough. Breakfast was nice and the general atmosphere in the hostel, was... More

We booked two double rooms with ensuite bathrooms for 4 nights. One room was rather smelly and the mattress worn through. We only managed to change into another twin room after threatening to look for alternative accommodation elsewhere. The rooms were adequate, but the two communal breakfast and internet rooms insufficient for all guests. Laundry was offered at an additional... More

Spent three nights here in a mixed 4 person dorm. The hostel is clean, decent English is spoken, and the place seems well run. Our room had its own shower and toilet, which was a pleasant surprise; big lockers, for bags and valuables; air conditioning, which we could control ourselves; and they provided towels. They have computers and wi-fi, in... More

I stayed in a 4 bed dorm. The room is quite large,the bed is comfy but I stayed on the top bunk away from the AC so it was warm to hot. There is only one public desktop but you can connect WIFI from your devices everywhere in the hostel and it was very very fast. Staffs are very nice... More

Love staying in a Hutong in Beijing. Stayed at lucky family hotel with friendly staff and not far from the subway. Price is good and room is clean. Unfortunately the neighbor is constructing a new house and all building materials have to be brought in through the reception area, thus causing inconvenience to guests.

Stayed in the lucky family hostel for nearly a week and the staff here could not have done more for us if we tried. We were greeted with a friendly smile from Amy on arrival who helped us to carry our bags to our room. Such a lovely person who could not do enough for us. Rooms are basic but... More

Great location, excellent staff, clean and comfortable room. Close to the metro and lots of restaurants nearby. There is also a large supermarket close to the hostel. Staff went out of their way to assist with all matters which was greatly appreciated. The breakfast is basic, but we enjoyed the convenience every morning. Wifi usually didn't work in the rooms...
