We have stayed in 6 different hostels in our China trip in late august 2012, both in Central and Coastal China. I can say this is the best one by far. All the staff speaks excellent English, they help you to book train tickets for a small commission so you can avoid loosing time fighting in train stations if your skills in mandarin are limited, rooms are really cheap and clean compared to what we have paid for in cities like Hangzhou and Shanghai, free wifi available, the hostel is centrally located in a lively and fashionable street called nanluogu xiang and...oh my god! There's free western breakfast included with what you pay, a real oddity in China hostels. What can else be said? Oh yes, their tour to the great wall is highly recommended, so if you go to Beijing in a tight budget, make yourself a favour and go there! They do not even ask you to write a nice repport about them when you leave as the other chinese hostels do :)
