Charming small hostel tucked away in a beautiful Hutong (Hutongs are the traditional Beijing neighborhoods).
I only spent two nights at this hostel but had an unforgettable experience. Located at a traditional courtyard you can experience the real feel of living in a Beijing hutong with none of the drawbacks. It's comfy, rooms are spacious and have there own western style bathroom. The decoration of the common areas is perfect (traditional chinese style) with lots of room to sit and many magazines and travel guides to borrow. The rooftop looks promising for the warmer months, but I visited in March and it still was a bit chilly outside. Another great feature is that this hostel has its own heating system (it does not depend on the government switch on and switch off dates). So for the chilly months like november or march (when there is no government heating and it is still cold outside) this is perfect!
But really the best part was the laid-back, relaxed and friendly ambience contributed by the perfect and helpful service! I did not meet Bob (he was on holidays). Instead the person in charge was John and he was perfect. He was always ready to help with a big smile, always giving great advice of what to do and see. It really is a pleasure to stay in a place like this, where everything is so good and the service is just great!
I would recommend this hostel to anyone with any doubt! Specially for couples!
