This hostel is far away from everything. You have to walk a lot from the metro station. The neighbourhood is not the best. It is totally safe, but there's nothing there. The hostel is a bit hidden in an alley. As I said it is a safe area but the place is very isolated. The hostel is pretty basic. The... More

A short walk from the subway at the end of a narrow laneway you will find this hidden gem. The delightful personality of owner Sammy and her staff have created a friendly atmosphere with secure and comfortable rooms and shared central courtyard and other facilities. It's only 100m away from a large traditional Chinese market that will consume your senses.... More

I stayed at the Inner City hostel in December 2013. I was studying in Hong Kong and decided to make a short trip to the capital of China before the semester was over. The communication with the hostel personnel was very good. I got an email with all the necessary information on how to get to the hostel from the... More

stayed 3 nights here in Jan 2014, overall it's a nice hostel with friendly staffs and quiet environment. Situated in a narrow hutong which is hidden and not easy to find at first time, but outside there are a few shops selling local/street food and a traditional market where you can buy fresh produce if you want to cook in...

We stayed at inner city in sep 2013 for the first week of our long term travels. We found the hostel to be in an excellent location, hidden away in a local Hutong area with the charm of a traditional Beijing home. The staff here made our week in Beijing so enjoyable. They are all so friendly and welcoming, they... More

We had the good fortune to stay at INNer City Hostel for 6 nights while we explored the amazing city of Beijing. The hostel is a little hidden however it was no trouble to find thanks to the directions we received in our confirmation email. The ladies that run the hostel are all lovely and went above and beyond to... More

Great place, full of chinese culture and atmosphere. Based within traditional hutong's area which makes this hostel wonderful place to stay. This was our first stop during our trip to China, we were welcomed with traditional chinese dinner and lovely hosts! Greetings for Sammy and Yang! :-) I wonder do you work there still? ;-) Greetings from Poland! Ola&Wiktor

This was our third stay with our three children. We live in Tianjin, just a short train ride away, and after our first stay we decided that we absolutely must return at least every spring and fall, just to be with the people again and in that atmosphere. When we first arrived, and we were walking from the subway station,... More

We stayed two nights while visiting Beijing. We really enjoyed having the common area to relax, read and play board games in the evening. The staff were friendly and generally helpful. We were told breakfast was included but were a bit disappointed that it was just a help-yourself toast and hot soy milk. One thing we really enjoyed was the... More
