Clean and tidy room, hot water work well, great wifi, great food. Almost staff can speak english, so no need to worry. Walk around 10 minutes to subway station Dengshikou Very recommended for reasonable price!

We picked this place for two reasons: it was fairly close to the other hostel we stayed and couldnt book extra nights + the price was reasonable for a double ensuite. The location was convenient although about a 10-15 min walk to either of two metro stations (2 different lines). The room we stayed in was a good size, wifi... More

Pros: Decent location (not too far from metro), good restaurant, cheap cold beer, rooms and bathrooms fine but nothing special. Price high for China, but probably not for Beijing. Cons: They lost our booking for the first night, and put us in the luggage storage/office room. Room was ok (bunk beds, AC, TV) but employees came in without knocking and... More

The hostel refused entry to my Chinese husband, saying that it is hostel 'policy' to keep Chinese and foreigners separate. No explanation was given and I know for a fact that there is no kind of law in China to this effect. In our eyes, this amounts to racist discrimmination in his own country, and I feel that I absolutely... More

I stayed in this hostel (when they were previously called Saga Youth Hostel) sometime in March 2011. I was with a friend; part of our agenda was to see the Great Wall. We arrived late and the student who helped us was very patient and led us to a great room. We first had a room that had a shared... More

I stayed here for a week, and really enjoyed my time here. I arrived late (after midnight), and had asked them to hold my reservation, which they did. I got a single room with shared bathroom, and my room was really clean. There was a bleach stain on the comforter, but that didn't really bother me. The bed was big... More

This is now called Saga Hostel at 9 Shijia Hutong. Great location on quiet, characterful alleyway, but near busy street with lots of restaurants. Five minutes walk from Dengshikou metro station. Walking distance to Forbidden City. We had a twin room with ensuite. It was clean and bright, with all facilities, including kettle and hairdryer. Rooms vary, though - you... More

This was the first hostel I stayed in on my month-long China tour, and let me tell you - it was the best place I stayed at because of the people I met there. The hostel has a great lounge area for meals and a huge sofa settee meant for hanging out, as well as some other tables. These are... More

... having to convince the cleaning lady that in a room we just moved in to a blanket with sandy footprints and plenty of spots is neither "new" nor "just changed" wasn't a good start at this place. the new bedding felt much better, but still there remained cigarette butts in the corners to manifest the Cha Bu Duo/差不多 (it...

This hostel would be fine if not for two (related) things: 1.) bugs 2.) lack of cleanliness Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 nights and that was quite enough.
