Very social and helpful... Though thin walls and can hear everything, construction, people in the bar and loads of sex (Actually that was kinda cool). Overall it was a good place for people wanting to meet people

Only stayed one night as my preferred hostel (Lucky Dragon, two mins away from here) was fully booked. This place is great though, a little hidden world in the HuTong! Cheap as chips, lovely restaurant/bar, free wifi, friendly staff accommodating at all hours (I arrived at 03:00!) and comfortable enough beds. Only issue was poor-ish wifi signal and slightly weird... More

Great hostel that has separate Ensuite Rooms, lots of young people passing by. We stayed for 6 nights and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hostels trip to the Great Wall was the best, not too busy and great food. A bit hidden away down a Hutong/Alley so we would recommend getting a pick up by the hostel if... More

At only £5 a night, this was great value for money. Very scenic location in a clean hutong, not far from a metro station and there are many local shops nearby. The rooms aren't much to write home about, but the beds are comfortable and everything is regularly cleaned. (I only spent time in my room whilst sleeping, because there... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Happy Dragon. We had a private double room that was spotless and dotted with characterful features. The room was cleaned daily. The hostel had a wonderful bar/restaurant in the central courtyard with extremely friendly staff, great food, wonderful coffee and themed evenings such as dumpling making, BBQs, and video night that would be...

great place in a very traditional location in the hutongs (although can be quite hard to find at first). The staff were very friendly and the cafe was great. The room itself is quite big but it can get quite cold.

This is a great hostel in an out-of-the-way hutong (alleyway) in Beijing. It's not the most centrally located, but it is near the subway. The prices are great, the staff are fantastic and the café on premises is fabulous. Depending on who is staying at the hostel it can be a bit noisy at night. People can stay and drink... More

super clean and super convenient! 4 of us got a 6 beds room with our private bathroom for only 75 kuai a night/person. This place is really clean, beds are comfortable! provides with towels and individual outlet by our beds along with individual night lamp. It's also near everything in Beijing, I will def come back again!
