Stayed here for 3 days in June. On arrival we were greeted by 2 members of staff, both were very nice and booked us in quickly before showing is to our room. The room was small but clean and fine for a hostel. The bar was good and had selection of food and drinks. The food was OK but not... More

The location is not bad in relation to the rest of the city but is tough to find and located in a horrible smelling alley. The dorm room was super average, horrible beds, no real window, dank and the bathroom was the worst I've had in China. Smelt awful, and had a toilet and shower crammed into a tiny cupboard... More

Accommodation in Beijing is expensive - especially private rooms in hostels which are more than double the price of other locations and doesn't come close to the same quality. However, this hostel definitely can't justify the price. There is a lot of construction around the hostel, and the location is terrible - it really feels like you are in a... More

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
