Stayed for 5 or 6 nights. Walk to great shops, daily morning market on the door step, train 150 m, great breakfast ( western) and about 1.5 km walk to Forbidden City. Staff and front desk (24 hr) were really helpful with local restaurant tips and guide advice and made our stay cheap, fun and safe. Strongly recommend.

If you want to experience how it is like in Beijing on an ordinary day, the trick is to stay in a hostel in a hutong district. HAPPY DRAGON HOSTEL in Beijing is a classic example. Beijing Happy Dragon Hostel is located at a Hutong area with a busy morning market everyday where you can buy cheap fruits and see... More

Great place to stay if you're on a budget, and worth the money. Beds are comfortable and rooms are of decent size. The staff members are all very warm and love to help / give directions. I have stayed at this hotel 3 times. Haven't regretted it yet!

This hostel is decent if you're travelling with a budget. The rooms are outdated and freezing cold when you check in (stayed in November). You need to turn the heater on for 30 minutes (when it works) before the room becomes warm. The location is alright, you are about 5-7 minutes walk from the metro. Next to the metro, you... More

I guess it does help when you speak the language.They even offered to help us make a restaurant reservation and that was great! Location wise, its indeed not the most easy to find but use the descriptive maps that they give you... More

The room was quite small but comfortable, the TV wasn't great. The location isn't too bad as you're very close to a metro station and also within walking distance of the walking street and night market area (maybe 30 mins). The restaurant food is pretty good. The breakfast is ok, but a little overpriced, however the coffees are decent. They... More

We stayed in this hostel in November upon checking in we were shown to our room. The room itself was spacious enough two single beds pushed together as many people will know the beds aren't the most comfy. The bathroom was clean with the shower above the toilet. Staff were always friendly and helped us out when we needed anything.... More

Overall ok. Breakfast was not worth the money, you even had to buy the coffee/tea separate ?!? So order something else from the menu. The bed was as hard as concrete. I could not turn the radiator off. (normally the opposite problem). Reception were not helpful about these problems. Very close to a metro station. But hey. So is everything... More
