We stayed here for a week. It had a great location to walk about the city or get the underground. The place was clean with good facilities. The wifi was terrible while we where there though. We booked a cheap rate online and continued to pay the same rate each day extra we wanted to stay so that's a good... More

If you are looking for simply a place of rest which is also convenient and cheap, there are very few in Beijing that can offer this combination. This place is one of them. The Hostel sits right next to the bus stop, train station (Beijing Railway Station) and metro (Subway). Immediately outside is the Post Office for which you can... More

First the good. Dorms are four bed proper beds. No bunk beds. Clean dorms with lockers. Location is right in front of the main train station. Excellent. When you are walking out of the station look to your left/front for the pedistrain bridge. (About 10:00 if looking at a face of a clock)The building that towers above it will have... More

The hotel is located very close to metro subway station line 2, 5 minutes walk to MRT Exit A so it is easy to go everywhere in Beijing with 2 CNY only. Across the street of Beijing´s Central Train Station.Room are clean & decent.Wifi connection only available on the club.

When I visit china all time I have been in this Hostel. The reason is close for every thing. It s just next to train station. also clean rooms and average price. That`s why I like stay here. Staff not rude but not professional but every one can speak English.

We stayed one night in this hotel. The room was quite spacious. It had two single, twin beds. The frames were quite basic and, as customary in China, the mattresses with extremely thin. That's what you should expect at any hostel in China, though. It could have been a bit cleaner. It was not unlivable or filthy, but both the... More

The hotel is located right in the centre of Beijing and very close to main attractions. A bit dirty and with lots of people that smoke within the hotel, which leaves it with a horrible smell throughout. The rooms are basic and the beds are hard, almost uncomfortable. Breakfast is OK but just too salty. There were cockroaches on the... More

I had booked this place for one night, simply for convenience due to its location next to the railway station and easy access to the airport on the metro connecting with the airport express train. However I only really think there was Chinese people staying in the place which I found quite noisy. My private en-suite room was spacey and... More

I had a great time in the hostel, although there wasn't much of a hostel vibe during low season. Most of the guests were chinese and although there is a common space with billiards tables, people were not really mingling. The room was nice and clean and the bed was comfortable. They had a large locker for luggage. The location... More
