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!

First of all, we didn't stay at this hostel so I cannot say anything about the room/service/area. I'm wirting this review because we booked this hostel thru booking.com 6 days prior to arrive in Beijing. We received the booking confirmation. As we were expected to arrive in Beijing around 10 pm, I tried to send a mail to their mail... More

I have also stayed in the other Happy Dragon hostel which I enjoyed but the Happy Dragon Courtyard has a lot more atmosphere just because it's in a Hutong courtyard. There were building works going on during our stay but these did not really cause any problems. The cafe is good although the toast with the western breakfast was pale... More
