Part of the great year-of-horse family vacation. I was in a 3-person room; it's tight quarters, but I recognize that it's a hostel and that's part of the deal. If it weren’t dead of winter, we’d use the common space more, but that’s not practical right now. Many things are fine: location, cleanliness, more-or-less stable wifi, mostly reliable doorbell system.... More

Backhome does not feel like home, unless you are used to living in filth. The room we stayed in was dirty and dusty and smelled of stale cigarette smoke. The management didn't seem to care about much and almost forgot to ask for the keys back when we left. The location was also not very good. It is in a... More

In this Hotel I spent 5 days in the beginning of March.I had no luck with weather, because it is always a little rain and fog, and ewen snow one day. Room smelled of moisture, and this is probably the reason of bad weather throughout the winter. Maybe in the spring and summer is better, because it looks nice ambience.... More

I wonder who and where Mike was coz i didnt meet him during our stay in the hotel last week. Nonetheless the staff that entertained us was helpful and could understand English. He was very creative and effective in using google translate if needed. The hotel was a little far from the subway, and if youre looking for some restaurants,... More

I completely agree with the last (Italian) review. Good price, friendly staff (translations by computer!), comfy bed, and no appearance by the legendary Mike. One suggestion for a filling, yummy & cheap breakfast would be to walk down the long alley towards Xisi stn., turn rt. at the main road, and the restaurant is a few blocks down on the... More

I stayed here alone after arriving by train from Moscow. My friends had reservation in other hostels, but very soon all of them moved to BackHome Beijing, leaving behind their already paid rooms - this tells everything about the place:) Mike at the reception is awesome!

The only down side is the location. Although it is right at the beginning of the small alley, it is only convenient if you are taking cab back to and from the hotel. If you are taking subway, the nearest station is right at the other end of the alley and another 500M to either left or right. I wouldn't... More

It was a wonderful holiday. The hotel is very cozy. Lovely staff, who strive to create a homely and friendly atmosphere. Evenings at one table with a family were especially remembered. I really felt at home. The trip to a karaoke is was cheerful :) Many historical sites and the metro is very close. This hotel - a fine place... More

I could not recommend this Guest House more highly! The service is as good as any I have had in 5-star hotels. Mike does an outstanding job of taking care of his guests. One day, I was asking him if he would write down something in Chinese for me, to make it easier when I went to the pharmacy. I... More
