I enjoyed my stay here since I got to meet a lot of new friends and we even went out for drinks together. The place is nice and comfy though the dorm is a bit small. The washroom is large and clean enough. I recommend to join the dumpling party every Friday night and also sample the local tea with...

If you are after a quiet, small hostel than this is the place. There are not many rooms, and during my stay many were empty due to the winter season. The hostel is located down a traditional Beijing 'hutong', offering a glimpse into local life and providing a break from the noise of the city centre. Staff were friendly and...

Rooms dorm or doubles, clean, beds very firm. Common Room with Dumpling Party on a Friday, breakfast is served and friends are made over a chat at any time. Helpful...

Small hostel located in a hutong area. Has everything you need and the staff were extremely friendly. Can help you organizing tours and tickets if you need. Rooms were clean and not to crowded and the facilities were just basic but all you need.

Nice place to stay and an amazing lifestyle to get to know as the hostel is located in a Hutong area. So you can make a check on your first sightseeing point, visiting a Hutong, by just living in one. What a great feeling. The hostel owner checked us in at 3am, so he is very helpful and a very...
