Double rooms with shower ok but a little smelly and damp.Food limited and expensive.10 rmb for 1 piece of toast with butter is a little steep.Plenty of places around to eat though.Common area is small but clean.Many chinese tourists when we were there so interaction was limited.Great if you want to practise chinese.WIFI in rooms is no good and with everyone on skype or downloading movies outside sux as well.Staff if helpfull but it is hard to know who staff is as it seems to be a drop in centre for friends.Dont let location put you of as the metro is 5 mins away and takes you everywhere.Dumpling party was good.

This is a great place! I'm a Chinese Canadian and I booked this hostel on Hostelworld. I wanted to have a feel of the Beijing Hutong style of living.

The place really did not disappoint me, I feel very at ease staying here. The lounge and the bar are great places to mingle and interact with other interesting travellers from other countries. As I only speak English and Cantonese, I was worried that I can't find anyone to talk to in Beijing. However, I realised there're so many travellers from outside of China who're able to talk to me! We had much fun, talking very late into the night.

Transport-wise, it's within 5min of walk to subway station, and it is situated near the city centre, so it's really very convenient to travel around!

Room Tip: Quiet and early sleeper - rooms from 2nd storey

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed out stay at Wada Hostel. We moved there from another hostel after the first place was very cold and had no hot water. We got one of the nicer rooms at Wada, although some of the others we saw did not seem as nice. The bed was comfortable, the room was spacious, and the shower was phenomenal. The only downside to the room was that a bad smell was coming from the bathroom so we had to keep the doors open to air it out.

The highlight was definitely the staff there. They were incredibly friendly, easygoing, and fun to hang out with. There is a big courtyard area where all the guests hang out and talk--it was a great place to meet people and have fun; Wada seemed to attract a great group of people to stay there. The courtyard could get rather smoky at times, as a lot of people smoked there. Also, people tended to hang out there rather late, so bring ear plugs if you want to go to sleep early. I wished their WiFi was faster.

Room Tip: Request the really nice room if you can afford it
