I loved this hostel as the reviews state before its a charming place with a great selection of room types and prices. I would recommend getting a room with a bathroom as the shared ones weren't great. OK for two days but i was glad to leave to get back to my bathroom at home!!!
Bring a towel or buy one for 30RMB.
Staff very friendly and speak english perfectly. They organised our tour to the Great Wall for us for 320RMB we did the hike from Jinshanling to Simatai - strongly recommend this it takes 4 hours but is well worth it! Has a fab zip line at the end for 40RMB.
The food is good and you can pre order breakfast before your tours and they get up and get it ready for you even at 5 in the morning!!!
