If you're looking for a modern, cosmopolitan city dwelling, this place is not for you. If you're looking for a taste of China and a homely, traditional place to stay, then look no further. Set in the 'back-streets' of a hutong, Kelly's doesn't look like much from the outside - in fact, you can hardly see its exterior. However, once you step through the main entrance into a peaceful courtyard you really feel like you're a million miles away from the nearby bustling city streets.
Bob, the owner was a fantastic host - from communications prior to our arrival, through to our departure, he helped us with all our transer, travel and sight-seeing enquiries; recommending places to eat and writing down Chinese translations when he thought we might need them. Bob arranged a trip to the Great Wall for us, and gave us a quick call during the day just to check that all was well and that we met our drive/tour guide ok.
The rooms are quite small and a little old fashioned, but they have everthing you need. The communal space provides guests with a place where breakfast is served and a roof-top garden that is great for relaxing after a busy day sightseeing. Snacks are available to purchase on an honesty basis - beer, water, soft-drinks and crips etc.
Kellys is a short distance from 2 subway stations so its very easy to get around the city and see the attractions. There are plenty of places to eat near the hostel and Bob directs you to the best ones to try. We really felt like we'd had a real taste of China after our stay here.
