I agree with all the other reviewers that you'll not find a better location for the price. You'll probably never find a more friendly and helpful staff anywhere else in China either. The owner went out of his way to help me arrange an early-morning trip to the airport, and did everything he could to make our stay a pleasant... More

This hostel is located right in the middle of Old Beijing, so it is near everything that is really important to see while in this great city! It is also located near the subway (about a 5 minute walk). There are great places to eat near by, including the standard Western fast food places and coffee shops. So the location... More

Well at first hand we thought our stay was going to be a nightmare. We had emailed the hostel a week earlier to let them know we would be arriving the early hours of the morning for check in. That was confirmed ok by email. Only to arrive and they didn't have any beds. Thankfully we found somewhere for that... More

Excellent Position. Rooms were very basic but clean. There were problems with the sewerage/plumbing and toilets did not flush properly (remembering never to drop toilet paper in toilets in China!) Some English was spoken by some of the staff on the desk - others very little English and a couple appeared disinterested in trying to communicate. The position of this... More

I really liked this hostel. I think it was in a good location and we got it for a very good price. We got her private room which included a shower and it was basic but adequate. I liked the traditional nature of the hostel and thought it seemed friendly place. I would stay here again

It is very convenient. Near many of the town's sites and plenty of food options around that area. So it is good for this! However, I do not recommend taking their tours. It is expensive and in large numbers, so not worth it. I paid 280 RMB for the tour to Mutianyu Great Wall, not including the cable car ride... More

I called qianmen hostel 2 days before arrival and a very rude staff scolded me and say hostel booking.com is not their authorized dealer and they... More

Upon arrival we were checked in to a room in the middle of construction works. Obviously we did not accept. Our walk-out was kindly accepted though. However I am of opinion works of that size should have been communicated.

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
