“bad rooms, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

The rooms are really bad, but mostly clean and without cockroaches but the really need to be renewed. But the staff is very nice and the best is the food. If you don´t care so much about nice rooms it´s really nice there.

I stayed in this hostel with my parents, so I saw both a private room and a dorm room. The private room was ugly, has a tiny window, a leaky sink, a bathroom with a curtain for a door, no TV, no cups, no towels, had an uncomfortable bed, and had bad insulation. My parents were awoken by the neighbors having sex the first night.
My dorm room was stuffy and uncomfortably hot, had the thinnest mattress I have slept on in over 3 years in China, and had almost no internet signal even though I was on the "network for my wing of the hostel." The bathroom was constantly wet and the hostel did not supply a pair of slippers for each person.
The hostel in general did not have a public kitchen for guests to use. The staff were always milling around, playing on their computers or chatting. No one was ever behind the bar, and often the front desk went unmanned.
I have stayed in hostels in over 10 countries and this was by far the worst I have stayed in. I suggest you stay away from this place.

Can't be bothered to cab down to Houhai or Gongti to get smashed? There's a bar at the hostel with free pool, an indoor basketball court and cheap beer. Located near the Yonghegong Lama Temple and in the middle of the hutong, expect lots of cheap Chinese food in the area.
