Stayed there couple of times. Every time I visit Beijing I try to find a couple of days to stay in this hostel for its international atmosphere and nice hospitality. Always fun to meet people from almost every part of the world. Good food, great traveling offers. Very comfortable location even for a walk: shopping malls, clubs and pubs are almost just around the corner. A very quiet yard!

I rarely write hostel reviews. But for this hostel, I feel compelled- This was one of the worst experiences. The Sanlitun Youth Hostel rooms look like they have never been cleaned. The staff is incredibly rude and barely speak english. The toilets do not work, and have been "under repair" for weeks. There is no wifi in room (4th floor), only at reception. I asked the staff if I could use one of their unused spoons for eating my breakfast. They angrily retorted that this was their spoon, and i should find one outside the hostel. Avoid at all costs.

I happen to stay there a night and was disappointed and disgusted. It is because the boy in front desk not care whether you stay, of course, it is understandable they just need your money, not your long-term business. Therefore, It does not have wifi in the room as it claims. A room was uncleaned and the mattress was hard. Ok, that was the only room and front desk and I cannot really prove any of my feelings. Hope that a picture below will illustrate how they take care of the hotel.

First room there were cigarettes in tge sink and toilet flush did not work. Second room the lights in the bathroom failed at some point. Rooms were not clean and seemed like their best days have been a looong time ago (wallpaper coming off etc.). The guy at the bar seemed not interested at all to sell us something. We had two nights booked, arrived really late, but left early next day. On the plus side, they gave us the full money back for the second night without argument. Overall, cheap for Beijing, but not worth it. Atmosphere was not good.
