I like my bar as much as the next person but I was worried it would be very noisy at night. Well, currently it is out of action , as is the kitchen. I had a deluxe room which was very nice, bed firm, not hard. Large tv, but no English channels. Lovely helpful girls at reception. 5 mins walk... More

You get a towel, a locker, and a bed with a curtain. Not too crowded, but not spacious. At night time they dont speak english, so figure things out during the day. Breakfast is not included, but for $3 or $4 dollars they can make a decent one. And they have coffee, which at times is difficult to get in... More

A pleasant place to stay in Beijing. In the middle of a hutong area you can breathe a real chinese atmosphere. The courtyard of the hostel is beautiful, our private room was small but confortable. Subway is very close. But what I appreciate a lot was the reception desk: the two girls are very kind, they speak english and helped... More

Negative things: There are only two showers and two toilets for all the hostel and it was so busy. They asked for 100y deposit to pay in cash in order to have the key, and it's not mentioned on booking. A little bit expensive for the quality. Positive things: Good location and friendly staff. The room and the showers were... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our trip and will stay again next week before flying to Dubai. The location was great, close to metro and lots of shops, restaurants etc. Although it may b difficult to find at first as it is on a hutong, small alley. It has a nice restaurant, tasty food and...

Happy Dragon Courtyard was in a good location- close to sites and restaurants but down a little alleyway which made it feel more authentic. The staff were really helpful and their English was perfect. The place was relatively clean and had a good atmosphere.

Happy Dragon Courtyard was clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. It's off the busy street, and in one of Beijing's charming hutong's, or alleys. There are bars and restaurants near by, and it's only a 5 minute walk from the nearest subway station. My only complaint was the bar/cafe in the hostel: we were overcharged three times. I don't think it... More

Great bed, nice shower and the staff was so helpful and gentle (specially the trainnees). The location may seem a bit dodgy, it is in an hutong, but we nevel fet in danger at all. Nowhere in China, to tell the truth.

I'm happy I choose it! From location to atmosphere, I totally recommend this place in the heart of Hutongs of Beijing. Good points: Not huge hostel, so you'll find enough beds but also tranquility. The courtyard is very cute and local, much more interesting than other normal hostels. Bar has upper floor too, great in summer and good options of... More
