We checked in late at night but the staff is still accommodating. Though not many of them can really speak english very well. The restaurant is very beautiful and the food is just about right. Though the room's okay, don't expect luxurious room. It's just a simple two beds and an ordinary restroom.

First and foremost I have to say that it is vital that you have the name and address and probably a map for this hostel printed out before you try to find it as it is down a little pedestrian alleyway so your taxi driver will not be able to take you to the front door address. Such was the turmoil of my friend and I having arrived in China for our first visit in -13C temperature, being unable to find our digs.
Once there, the place is lovely, charming and comfortable - and brilliantly located in the old part of Beijing where there are lots of cute places to visit and in walking distance to many attractions.
As stated in there reviews, this was not a particularly sociable hostel, I was travelling with friends so we were fine with that.
The people working there were also considerate and helpful, one even letting me use her local credit card to book ballet tickets.

Located in a renovated hutong area of Beijing is this lovely youth hostel.
Don't expect 5 star bed, services and food but if you look for a decent place to sleep, a shower and breakfast: this is a great option.
We booked private rooms to ensure a private bathroom. Prices are very low compared to other hotels so that was no worry.
The location is very nice: in the hutongs with lots of bars and restaurants and very very close to the subway!! Also the Forbidden city is within walking distance!

Room Tip: Choose a private room

Stayed here for 4 nights and it is very close to Beijing's subway which is one of the best ways to go around this huge city. Rooms are quite big and very very clean. Since it is located at Nanluoguxiang, do expect tourists (both local and foreign) to flood the streets. We however could not hear any street noises from our room so that was fine. The NLGX street is laden with plenty of shops and prices are pretty fair for most stuff.

Room Tip: Twin rooms seems to be on level 1 next to the common area. Double rooms are on level 2. :)

There was zero communication to us from this hostel even though there had been major road work on nanluoguxiang (the main street to get to the hostel). 95% of shops, bars and restaurants were closed due to the roadwork. The peking international youth hostel is pricier than all surrounding hostels and is certainly not worth staying at under these conditions. The hostel also made zero effort to create a friendly and welcoming hostel atmosphere. The staff were unhelpful at providing information and the services were expensive (11 AUD for 1x laundrey). This hostel was more like a mini hotel except that it was extremely noisy at inconvenient hours, e.g. cleaners banging on the floor or dropping things at 5am. On the plus side the room (deluxe double) was spacious and well lit during the day. Overall a really disappointing experience and I wish i had booked elsewhere.
