First impression isn't great, but the location is quite central. Really helpful staff, especially Holly, very sweet girl. Nice clean accommodation. Rooms clean & great air conditioning. Had everything we needed and more. Food was reasonable enough and quite nice.

This hostel is quite good. Near restaurant. And the clerks are helpful. I stayed here 3 nights and I found that this hostel is good. Its near Dongsi subway station. So, dont worry if you get lost in Beijing, because this place is so near with the subway station

I stayed at this hotel for three nights during April 2015. Staff were friendly, they could speak English. and they were able to organise tours of the city and of the Great Wall. Located within walking distance of the centre of Beijing, near a tube station and fairly easy to find. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for... More

We stayed with friends for three nights and found our stay to be an excellent one. A subway station is just a few walks way from the hostel, making most destinations easy to reach They got a friendly staff available round the clock. They can speak English which is great considering there's a huge language barrier outside. They also provide... More

We have been there in triple room- very small. Bath room also very small and almost clean. The stuff was friendly, expect one girl on reception. Its not far from subway station. Also walking distance (20 minutes) from Forbidden city. Prices ok.

We spent there 3 days in triple bed room. There was so little space to walk that only one person could go between beds e.x. to toilet other people should stay on bed. Very little air in the room (about 6-7m2 for 3 people in 30C weather, when AC is turn off after you got out). Shower is so near... More

Hostel had an OK location about 5-10 min walk from the Dongsi subway station which is a stop for both lines 5 and 6. Area is rather dark and deserted at night but was still safe like in most of Beijing. I stayed in the hostel dorm which was OK. Hotel wifi was the most inconvenient feature of my stay... More

There are both pro's and cons to the Happy Dragon Hostel: Pro's: - location is good! 3 minutes to the subway station, the Temple of Heaven and there are shops and restaurants only minutes away. - the staff are very friendly and always willing to help! - they offer great tours around Beijing. The tour to the Great Wall was... More
