Red Lantern House was an ideal place for us. It's located in a cool little hutong, close to the subway station, and within walking distance of some interesting stuff. The staff was exceptionally nice and made the stay even better. The decoration and set-up of the guesthouse itself is really interesting as well, definitely worth checking out. It was clean,...

Me and my sister started our China (August 2012) tour with Beijing and slept here our first night in China. We really enjoyed our stay. In a nut shell: the food was good, the rooms were clean, the bathrooms were clean and the atmosphere was amazing for travellers wanting to meet other travellers from all over the world. Cons: it...

we stayed in this hostel for 5 nights and were very happy with our choice. The inside is decorated with chinese artifacts of all kind, which really gives you the feeling of being in an ancient chinese house. The rooms and common areas are kept very clean (the bathrooms are cleaned more than once a day). We ate breakfast here... More

The hostel is possibly difficult to find - or maybe that was because all we had was an address in English, no map and arrived late at night!? We got there in the end, and the place has a great vibe. The staff speak good english and were friendly. They serve the cheapest beer we found in our entire trip... More

This was our first hostel experience and we loved it in our kind of way. Our room was neat and clean and the toilet too. The place was very quiet and peaceful. Close to the Xinjiekou metro station. Take the B exit, up a flight of stairs and walk left into the Xizimen Inner St. (if you take the lift... More

We stayed here for a week in August as a family of four with two young children. We stayed in the East Yard, just round the corner from the main building, which has a lovely garden courtyard. It was a great place to relax after a day of manic sightseeing in the inevitably busy Beijing. The surrounding area is a... More

“Located in a traditional hutong, not so far away from the subway station. Good housekeeping. Efficient train ticket service. My single room was around 10m², with AC and a good bed. Nice courtyard. Quiet by night. The main interest of this place is the on-demand food service, for a reasonable price. Breakfast can be bought for around Y20. Good cheap... More
