Had a wonderful time there for 8 days. Yes the rooms are small, 2 twin beds with very comfortable mattresses. No closet. TV with only one english speaking channel which was the news. Bathroom adequate but dimly lit. For the money it was a great value and lotaion was spot on! 2 blocks from The Forbidden City, 3 blocks from Tianenman Sq. to the west. Two blocks to the east was Wangfujing Street. Huge pedestrian walkway with hundreds of stores, shopping malls, eat streets, market places and no traffic to deal with. Turned out to be a better value than I expected. Staff was helpful in changing reservations, calling taxis etc. Nice downstairs restaurant that serves a western breakfast each morning for $5.00 a head. Bar and lounge as well and nice lobby area to hang out. Caters mostly to the young backpack crowd but we also saw large groups of older people in the 8 days we were there. You could spend a lot more and do much worse than this hotel. Difficult for taxi drivers to find so download the map, hotel name & location in Mandarin!

Room Tip: 2nd floor and higher facing the alley or courtyard are best.

My partner and I were in a private room, the place was clean, although the shower was slightly mouldy. This place is more like a hotel than a hostel. If you want to make friends don't go here for atmosphere. The restaurant closed at 9pm and stopped selling drinks, despite the sign saying will serve till 2am. It's close to the forbidden cit which is great. But I wouldn't pay again to stay here. There are nicer and cheaper places in Beijing.

Booked a four bed dorm with my friend. We arrived late night during heavy flooding in Beijing. From what I could tell, this was previously a hotel that has been changed into a hostel. Upon our arrival we were given a room at the ground floor of the building with a street view. The beds were comfortable, there was even a TV set which we never used. The toilets are a disaster, they were never cleaned throughout our stay. There was hair from previous guests in the shower area. The walls, doors and the ceiling was covered in black mold, you couldn't breath, cause of the unpleasant smell. Stayed there for two night and would never repeat this adventure. The stuff at the reception is rude and doesn't speak English at all. It's a 10 minute walk to the main shopping area of Beijing.

The very best thing about this hostel is its location. You are in the perfect location for Forbidden City, Tienanmen Square and the Metro (which is fabulous an cheap). Great for backpackers or those looking for a cheap place to lay your head while you take in all Beijing has to offer.
Staff are helpful and most speak excellent English and are more than happy to help you find your way around.
Do not go under any illusion that the place is luxury; dorms are comfortable with little storage space and air con goes from 0 to freezing in a short space of time. Breakfast is also not very good for the price.

Room Tip: Try not to share a dorm - bathrooms are not cleaned often enough!

I originally booked this place as a hotel, but they seem to advertise themselves as a hostel as well, no real issue for me but it might be if you don't like finding yourself among backpacking tourists.

The staff spoke only very limited English but were all friendly and helpful. The breakfast costs 30RMB and has a reasonable selection of western and Chinese options.

The room itself was definitely hotel-like and adequately large. The state of the furniture was alright but the cleanliness of the room was quite poor. Towels and sheets were never changed during my 4 night stay. There was no WiFi available in the rooms but it is offered for free in the lobby.

If you arrive with a suitcase it's best to get a taxi as the nearest subway station is quite far. Do make sure to write down the address in Chinese as the drivers have trouble enough finding it, and an English address will not help them very much.

The location is very good, within 10 minutes of walking from the North gate of the forbidden city.

If you don't get your expectations about a clean room up too much then this is a cheap and decent option.
