“Good location! near the subway”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

I stayed for 3 nights. The location of this hotel was perfect. You can walk easily from the subway to the hotel. It took 5 minutes walk. There were a lot of restaurants around this area. The convenient store was not far from the hotel. There were a lot of foreigners staying. The staffs were helpful. They could speak English well. The room that I got was not quite good, it's just ok. They didn't provide soap or shampoo in the private room, but they provided them in the dorm room. However, they had the shared bathroom on the second floor that you can use.

We had our flight from Beijing to Xi'an inexplicably cancelled by the airline after keeping us waiting for well over 6 hours (thanks for nothing Hainan Airlines!) so we returned to Beijing very late at night or very early in the morning depending on your perspective. The Hostel staff found us a serviceable room at short notice and they were very nice in helping us to navigate the whys and wherefores of re-booking or cancelling the other parts of the Beijing to Xi'an leg of our trip. The room was seedy and the beds hard and uncomfortable but given the price and the time of night we could not have done better and could have done a whole lot worse! If you are on a tight budget but want a serviceable room in a great location this is the place for you.

We have just spent the past 10 days at the Dragon King Hostel. It is located in a delightful Hutong in central Beijing. I am delighted to say that the reception staff, Angela, Cherry, Sarah, Flower and Nana were all incredibly knowledgeable/helpful, and all speak very good Engish, and as well as this the rooms were very clean and extremely comfortable and quite. A great feature of this hotel is the fact that it has no carpets!!

The restaurant are also extremely good and they too deserve a good word...thank you!

We personally vote this hostel as being one of the best we have stayed at. We are sad to leave.

It really appreciate everything here, you can not image how helpful the staff is . they treat me as an old friend. Dragon king is my home in Beijing . I definately will come back . Excellent location near by the subway station , cleaned room , nice breakfast and cool beer in the bar. At last I highly recommend it for everyone.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less A/C unit noise

Very helpful staff. The staff spoke English and were able to write things in Chinese so we could buy train tickets. Their help was much needed and much appreciated.

The restaurant is nice to hang out in. It has good food, and again friendly staff.

The location is initially hard to find, but is close to the subway. So it is convenient to travel anywhere in the city from it.

The wifi was good in the restaurant. The shower was nice and the room was clean with lockers.

Excellent facilities, lovely bright room with en suite, laundry, bar and very cheap tours. Great location, next to the tube and 'Ghost street'. The bar makes a good breakfast ( usually difficult to find) and has themed nights, pizza, make your own dumplings, happy hour and a full menu of delicious food. The main thing is the hospitality though, they are so cute! All speak perfect English and welcome you like you are a long lost friend. Thank you for having us!

Reading the reviews below they have either made dramatic improvements or I'm just lucky. Communication in China is difficult so good English speaking friendly staff really make a place and can dramatically improve your travelling experience that's what I've encountered here. Everything is on your doorstep, 3 minutes from subway, several banks, foreign exchange, supermarket, bakery, passport pictures and outdoors supply store. The food in the hostel is really good and the portions are big. There's an excellent noodle place just around the corner prices start about 8Yuan. It's cold at night but big cosy blankets are provided. The tours are fairly competitively priced if you don't want to brave them by yourself. Tiranamen Square/ forbidden City are about ten mins by subway and the silk market embassy's ten minutes in the opposite direction.

Only complaint is they advertise they accept credit cards which they don't but I've experienced this a lot in china.
