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.

The staff are friendly and very helpful. The rooms where nothing special but for China standards, I had stayed in worse for alot... More

We stayed here for six nights in a double room w ensuite. We had to change rooms as our courtyard room was far too noisy at all hours of the night. The second room was also noisy as it faced a side street with trucks and public walking past 24/7. The beds in both were rock hard, as I travelled... More

This was a really lovely little old courtyard place, and is a great example of the kind of place the recently rebuilt Qianmen St is trying so hard to recreate. The staff were friendly and helpful, and helped us plan our - though they discouraged us from going to the 'wild wall' at Jiankou which turned out to be totally... More

Great little hostel minutes from Tiananmen Sq and southern hutongs. Beautiful old courtyard. Great staff. We'll priced beer and soft drinks. Rooms were in need of a little renovation love, but pretty reasonable prices for our ensuite double.

fairly cheap hostel. good location, close to subway and tourist attractions. Fairly quiet. Staff was ok. but rooms are pretty cold and basic. Shared bathroom and showers were good but located downstairs. Tours can be a little expensive.

Staff were friendly and manage to re-order their bookings to accommodate an extra person in our party. Ultimately, you get what you pay for. It's just a bed. Drinks are cheap. Location is excellent. Definitely recommend this hostel.
