I have gone to Beijing a couple of times already and this is where I always stay. Okay let us start with the good points: the place is cheap ... I think 60 usd a night is golden. Home inn is a chain of hostels and there are many of them in Beijing ... It is also near the good places where cabs pass by ... Its signage has a crescent moon in it with text of golden yellow and purple, just in case you spot it on your way from the airport :)
Bad points: you need a dictionary, staff cannot speak English and this could be trying when you are trying to nook or when you are trying to get a toothbrush. However, suggest that whatever you need, either show a picture thru your phone or iPad or point out the word on your pocket mandarin dictionary.
