i stayed here for 9 days while looking for an apartment in beijing and i had a lovely stay. from the moment i arrived, the staff were kind, friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. i spent 5 nights in a single en suite, and then 4 nights in a 4-bed dorm. the single was clean, secure and comfortable. the dorm was also clean, simple and a great deal for a room in the heart of the city. the shower room was right outside my door and was well maintained. there were also big lockers in the room for your luggage, which is peace of mind for when you are out during the day. the staff spoke very good english and nothing was lost in translation. further, the location in lishi hutong is lively and means there are various shops and restaurants on the doorstep, and with a 5 minute walk to chaoyangmen subway station and plenty of taxis it was easy to travel almost anywhere in the city. i realised towards the end of my stay that a half hour walk straight up the road and you are at jingshan, overlooking the forbidden city. i couldn't have been happier with my stay at xiaoyuan and have just helped some friends book a room there for a few nights in the summer. i look forward to seeing all the staff again soon.
