This stay was part of a stopover on the way to the Philippines. We had 2 rooms with private baths. A triple was 280 RMB and the double was 220 RMB. Given the time of year, my two main concerns were heat, and hot water. Both were no problem. After a long day of sightseeing, we had nice long, hot... More

We have been here for a week and we enjoyed out stay here. The room had a big bed, a clean toilet and not beautiful looking but working shower. The only problem was, that the room got very humid after showering despite the ventilator. The staff is very friendly, speaks enough English to recommend some things and helps you if... More

Good location and staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Didn't have much of a social aspect but rooms were clean with decent showers and bathrooms. Nothing to complain about, very nice stay here.

It was a bit hard to find and not the best hostel i've ever stayed at but it could have been worse. The location is really good and there are heaps of cheap restaurants in the area. The doorm rooms are quite small, the bed a bit hard but I got a few good hours sleep and the showers and... More

This was a fun hostel. We ate breakfast in the lobby on a unique table so you had no choice but to speak to other travelers. Service was just ok. It was mostly the culture and the build that made this hostel unforgettable! I usually travel in solo and found that i met more people here than anywhere else. Slept... More

the location are just great, near to the famous food street in Beijing, walking distance to MRT, TianAnMen square and lot of HuTong (old street). The old Chinese style accommodation and backyard are just awesome for those wanted to feel the pure chinese architecture.

I enjoyed my stay at this hostel for the following reasons. Location is amazing, the staff is very friendly, the food prices were amazing and they offer all sorts of tours making it easy to see the sites. The hostel is in an old heritage building that added to the charm and experience of old city Beijing. Be warned that... More

Everytime I've stayed at Qianmen Hostel service, price rates and treatment from the employees has been awesome. A "must" for every traveller looking for a relaxing place to stay, but at the same time allows you to meet other travellers and exchange experiences and itineraries both in Beijing or other places around China. As said, perfect cheap place to stay... More

This isn't the nicest hostel in the world, but it feels like...a hostel. It's cheap enough, has hot water and good water pressure (and the shower actually drains, always a plus). Big bottles of Tsingtao for 5 rmb. I know there are people out there who care about this detail. The breakfast was good (includes a free coffee! or tea/juice.... More

Lonely Planet (LP) has this as one of their top picks in their Beijing guidebook. My experience here was just alright -- bit dingy and run-down in places, staff had a few issues understanding English, a bit of a walk to Tiananmen (20 mins) and Qianmen Station (10 mins), but otherwise a nice, cheap, comfortable stay.
