I was there recently fo 2 nights with my girlfriend. Yes, the girls at the reception speak good english but they just seem to be bothered by any questions and try to get rid of you as soon as possible, with the shortest answer possible, and no effort whatsoever. Examples: Q:can you recommand a good popular restaurant near here? A:go... More

I had stayed in this hostel several times before and in general I had a very favorable view of this hostel. The location was good, it was clean but this view has been shattered after I discovered my euros were stolen out of the wallet while I was shopping in Beijing. Before arriving in Beiiing I held my euro in... More

Friendly and helpful staff both working on reception and in the bar, who could speak very good English. The staff kindly wrote down my symptoms in Chinese so I could get some medicine from the pharmacy, otherwise we would have had a lot of difficulty; I think the staff at the pharmacy were relieved when we came in with the...

Very low shower pressure and only reaches a maximum of luke warm temperature. Some staff friendly but others not so friendly. Food from cafe is expensive so better to eat outdoors. Close to subway which is... More

Close to the subway, right on a local market it is a funny place to stay. Neighbourhood is a bit funky, but overall good atmosphere. Vibe in the hostel is good, clean and big bunkbeds. Food is Western and expensive there so go out on the streets. Staff is very friendly and help you with anything.

I stayed in a single room with the bathroom inside. For the good point, the room itself is fine. The size fits with a solo traveler and everything is clean. The location is not far from the subway like just 10-minute walk. The first bad point is about the huge construction in front of the hotel that is very noisy... More

The staff are very cooperative and helpful. And what's more is they all can speak English, something very rare in all Beijing. The room are okay, clean and cozy enough after all day walk whether in the Great Wall, Forbidden City or even the long walks in the subway train stations.. The Dongsi Subway Station is very near too.

I stayed at Saga Hostel, one of the Happy Dragon Hostels. The best thing about the staying at Saga was the fantastic staff. Always helpful, open and friendly. Candice the manager really made me feel welcome on my first time in China. She made an effort to tell me of Beijing's sights, what to avoid and what to explore. All... More

We very enjoyed our stay at the Happy Dragon Hostel. Staff were amazing and very helpful. The rooms are a bit small but it's ok. Hostel location is wonderful. Very close to the subway station "Dongsi" and in a walking distance to the city center and to the food night market. Very recommended Hostel.
