To be fair , I don't think that you will find anything cheaper with the same type of " quality " but the front desk girls can use a little less attitude .. I walked miles in this cold weather, they gave me so much attitude and can mumble to me where to find an ATM . And stairs ..... More

Beijing hasnt the highest living standard so it was ok. Very nice employees, good english for Beijing and helpful, but the room was awful, the bathroom was full of mold, also a bit in the corner of the beds, the beds itself were hard as stones.

Bar staff were nice enough. - Room was awful, I know this is a hostel so I wasn't expecting the Ritz but my room was... More

Generally in a decent part of Beijing near the Sanlitun Bar Street and some excellent restaurants and eateries are also a short walk away. Our room was a private room and was generally average. The room was a bit dusty and the ensuite bathroom was mouldy and the shower generally lacked sufficient water pressure and / or hot water at... More

This was the most disgusting hostel I have ever stayed in. To start, there was blood on the disgusting yellow pillow. The beds were moth eaten and the sheets were filthy. Worse of all, me, my dad and husband were trying to have a quiet drink in their bar and we were attacked by one of their drunken customers. The... More

Nearly everything about this hotel was a disappointment. The rooms were dusty and didn't look like they'd been thoroughly cleaned in a very long time. The shower didn't work properly. The food at the restaurant was appallingly bad. The staff was neither friendly nor helpful. And construction started outside my window at 8:00 AM. The location was great, next to... More

Seriously, DON'T stay at Santilun. I stayed there for over a week and the bad conditions NEVER changed. 1. My room was super dusty. I think they have no idea of what a duster is. There was a table full of stuff from former guests. It was so dirty under that table; like they hadn't swept/mopped the floor during a... More

We stayed there for more than a week and although we asked 3 times for fresh towels and linen we ended up having to find them and do it ourselves. Room cleaning, zero. Otherwise, good location and not bad value.

We stayed at the hostel a couple of nights and actually planned to stay longer, if it wasn't for the bad staff at the hostel. The staff wasn't cooperative, the rooms were not clean and if people smoked cigarettes in the room nothing was done about this. The Wifi was crap, it was only available in the noisy common room....

We booked a couple of nights there, in a double room. The room was big enough and sufficiently clean. Staff was neither friendly nor unfriendly, in a way that one would expect in a bureaucratic organisation more than in some hostels. The first night we were spending some time at the bar, chatting with other guests, when some people -... More
