Located in a Hutong a stone throw from the Dongsi subway station this hostel offers clean comfortable rooms. With out a doubt the best thing about happy dragon besides the central location is the staff. While the English skills vary from person to person, the staff shared one thing in common; a friendly and very helpful demeanour. They helped us... More

Nice hostel, clean, good facilities, located 3 minutes walk from a supermarket and 4 minutes from a tube station, allowing you to get anywhere in the city until midnight. The bar area does get a bit crowded and the music volume is high throughout the day, would be nice to have a more quiet area. Staff were very helpful and... More

I stayed here for about 8 days during my trip in Beijing. The staff are all very helpful and speak English decently. If you have a question about a trip or transportation, they are quick to help. I stayed in a 5-bed room, which was relatively clean. One note to consider is that many bathrooms in China do not have... More

- Friendly and very helpful staff - David, Jack, Carl & Sally. Without David’s help, we wouldn’t be able to book our train ride to Tianjin. He was very patient and accommodating. - Staff speak good English; they would even write in Chinese the places where we want to go so no hassle at all - 10 mins. walk from... More

My mom, sister and I stayed here on our recent trip to Beijing. We had arranged for transport from the airport to here upon arrival, so we had no problem getting there and then once we knew where we were, we never had trouble finding it again.

I really hated Beijing....I have never seen a city show such contempt for tourists. But people at this place are the exception. Very friendly, and well, cute. they didn't bat an eyelid when I woke them up at 3am in the morning to go for my runs. I was very close to the bar, so it got a bit noisy,... More

Spent loads of time looking for the 'right' place to stay in Beijing. I read it was hard to find so I organised an airport transfer, only to be taken to their sister hostel. Not the hostels fault, but a 15 min walk turned into an hour walk, as no one could help us find it even though we had... More

We stayed here 23 nights. Difficult to find, there is construction sites right next door and it does get noisy early in the morning. But it is only 5 minute walk to subway and 20 minutes to the pedestrian walking street with heaps of food. The room was average. We booked a double but were given two single beds pushed... More
