We spent 3 nights here after leaving another highly recommended hostel that happened to be hardly average. This was a very good surprise. I suspect we were given a good ensuite room because the hostel was nearly empty but anyway, good quality for money. The most important thing was the people at the front desk: they were really helpful. Either... More

We arrived late (around 1am) from the airport. We got scammed-the taxi driver had fixed the meter so by time we arrived it was at an exorbitant rate. We argued and my friend went to go and get the reception staff to help. They pretended not to know what was going on except for the fact that they slipped up... More

Yes, it's a deal breaker!! They say hot water for showering and there is none. It appears that many people come here for a few days and have to move on because of it or just put it up with it. You come to Beijing as a tourist and the last thing you have time for is searching for another... More

Beijing Happy Dragon Courtyard and its companion property Dragon King are a 1 min walk apart on 9th alley No51, Dongsi Jiutiao, Dongcheng District Beijing. This is not the Happy Dragon Hostel located elsewhere but the name is easily confused when searching for it. I stayed at the Happy Dragon Courtyard. It was wonderful. I had a private room with...

This place was ok. The building itself was pretty cool and was lit with dim lights to highlight the Classical Chinese courtyard. Unfortunately the hostel itself was not amazing. There were only two showers and two toilets available. The only common area was the bar where you could only eat food and drink purchased there. No drinking water was provided.

I stayed at the Happy Dragon Courtyard in Beijing August 1-5th, 2015. I stayed in a mixed dormitory, shared with 5 other people. I was travelling alone and it was my first time staying in a hostel, and travelling alone. Everything was very clean and comfortable. We had a bathroom in our room with a shower, and a set of...

Stayed here for over a week, and loved the traditional 胡同 element. This place is related to the hostel down the road, the Dragon King, and both are great bets in Beijing. As for value, this place is incredible! I cannot stress how great a value this is. The ONLY downside is that every room surrounds the bar and the... More

We enjoyed our stay at Happy Dragon Courtyard. The location is good, very close to a subway station and close enough to walk to many attractions. The double room with en-suite was on the small side but just about OK. In the bathroom the shower is in a cubicle, not the normal wet room style common in China - a... More
