I felt at home at Red Lantern. They picked me up in the airport as I arrived late at night. I was happy that a clean and comfortable room welcomed me as well as a good smelling bathroom. The staff was very helpful to right down in Chinese characters the places I need to go to. They have a nice... More

A great budget hostel like traditional hotel/hostel, providing bed & breakfast, or single/double bedroom with/without bathroom attached. Nothing can beat this hotel value and prices. Place is consider convenience by 500meter walk to metro station line 4 of beijing. Breakfast was serve at the main building lobby, it's a simple breakfast with a cup of nice fresh brew coffee.

This is a great place - cheap, full of character and wholly authentic. We fell in love with the Hutong district around the hostel and whilst we found china at first a little difficult to adjust to the family here really softened our opinion of it. We cooked dumplings in the hostel, shared rice wine with the family and met... More

I stayed at the Red Lantern in March 2014. I found the hostel to be exactly what I was looking for - well-priced, friendly, quiet and located relatively close to two subway stations. My flight from Doha to Beijing was delayed, but even so the driver from the hostel was there to collect me. This was fantastic! It was good... More

Affordable, clean rooms, dorms and showers. Great location amidst Pinganli´s hutongs. Big social area. Lots of fishtanks to look at. A nice old cat. Many additional services provided. I stayed for over a week, got over my jetlag, made lots of friends and explored the city from here.

This was a charming backpacker's Inn. The staffs are very friendly and the location is very good. The Inn is nestled in a local residential area, but just 1 or 2 blocks away is a popular main streets with lots of food options. The decor inside the Inn is a traditional Hutong style and very charming. We enjoyed our stay... More

A nice and clean hostel with a homely atmosphere. Rooms are cleaned up daily. Ideal location ,just off the busy city, but a few minutes from the metro. With a cozy courtyard, breakfast is somewhat unclear, with or without coffee? Never the less recommended We were picked up at the airport what gave us an easy start. Beijing has a... More

I stayed in a double ensuite in the east yard for 10 days in September. It was perfect! 5 minutes away from the metro station, clean rooms, great service, quiet hostel (more suited to family's or travellers in groups wanting a quieter time in Beijing. Not most central hostel but that suited me just fine and the buying was authentic,... More

Even at first look the hostel doesn't look clean or save (I'm guessing because of the area where is located), the place is very clean and comfortable. Beds are clean, room and bathroom in general also. Nice typical Chinese environment. As I said before the area of location seems like an street market, so by daylight is crowded and by... More

Relaxing, quiet place to stay in a traditional hutong. Close to subway stations and within walking distance to bars and restaurants, although not many (English speaking) options close-by, especially for breakfast. Staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed in a double room off the courtyard. It was very quiet, clean and comfortable.
