The Hutong Culture Inn was a cute, out-of-the-way hostel and we found the room to be clean and spacious, overall a good value. We also really enjoyed taking the Mutianyu/Ming Tomb tour from there and there's a nice street of restaurants, shops and bars within walking distance. They're also fairly responsive by email, which I very much appreciated.
However, we found it difficult to get cabs to that area and the one staff member who spoke English wasn't always following what we were asking. We arranged for an airport shuttle both ways, and coming to the hostel was no problem. However, on our final day of the stay when we asked them to call us a taxi to visit the art district, they kept insisting that they'd already called the airport shuttle and didn't need to do it again- obviously lost in translation. The airport shuttle also took us to the wrong terminal, requiring us to take an additional 20 minute bus and had our flight not been delayed we might have missed check in.
