One of the best places I've stayed at for overal value and location for the centre of Beijing and hina tours. All the staff are helpful and extremely friendly all of the time. You will struggle to find a cheaper more reliable location anywhere in Beijing, especially for back packers.

I didn't book this hostel but I got information from other traveler. And I went there straight away without booking. I was able to check in right away in dorm with 8 bed. The room was clean. The bathroom wasn't clean enough. I forgot my toiletry bag in the shower but it had disappeared. And the staff there couldn't find...

I think this place was pretty reasonably priced. Yes we stayed at cheaper places in China but this is the capital city so you have to expect slightly inflated prices I guess. The staff were really helpful from the first email I sent after booking (explaining that we'd be checking in late at night), providing late check in for us...

I exchanged emails with this hostel days before I arrived. It was confirmed. I gave my flight details to inform them I'm arriving past midnight. I arrived at the hostel. They photocopied my passport. Then the nightmare began. The person at the reception with a name tag "Rich" asked another person who can speak better English to attend to me....

Reslly friendly little hostel. Staff spoke pretty good english and were very helpful. The bar had a nice vibe and was a good place to meet other travellers. Wifi was great downstairs but no signal in any of the rooms. They did the laundry as a service - cheap and worthwhile. The rooms need a bit of work, mattresses hard...

The Sanlitun Youth Hostel bar is great! good, loud and busy atmosphere with plenty of people there looking for a good laugh! The rooms however leave a lot to be desired if you're looking for anything more than somewhere to dump your bags. The beds were hard and not very clean, stained sheets and dirty pillows. The walls were mouldy,...

at first glance this hostel is great, a cool bar , good crowd and decent facilities with a relaxed decor. if you want to meet people and socialise this is a great place to come. there is a relatively expensive food menu serving western food and drink , and the price of accomodation is certainly good. only downsides would be...

I stayed here a few times during my 6 months in Beijing, wonderfully cheap, clean, and with a great party atmosphere. The staff all speak English perfectly. There is a nice, open bar/food area that is bustling every night, but more relaxed during the day, which is a great place to meet people. Expensive compared to local food, but pretty...
