We booked 2 nights in a 4 bed dorm. We were told on check-in that we would have to change rooms for the second night. I asked what room we would be changing to and was told it was just another dorm. The next morning we were taken upstairs to a shed on the roof where the staff sleep! We had one bunk in the doorway, with the staff in the area behind. This room was filthy and not the same standard as the room we had booked and stayed in the night before. After expressing our thoughts on the room we were allowed to move back to the original room.
Apart from all that stuffing around, this is quite a nice hostel and in a good location down one of Beijings hutongs.
The staff were helpful, especially Angel who helped us book train tickets.
