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

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.

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.
