Liked: Location at the historic Liulichang Street, multiple good restaurants and shops in the area, spacious and comfortable rooms, location in the very heart of Beijing, within a walking distance to Forbidden City.

Disliked: Staff at the reception desk are poorly informed and not very helpful, sometimes they do not understand English well.

Liked: Its location is pretty well located. It's close to the subway station qintao, right opposite to the Tiananmen Square and forbidden city. It's also close to traditional hutongs with good restaurants.

Disliked: Very unhelpful staff!!!!...specially the rude woman at the desktop. When I needed something she said she didn't speak English however she really did....

Liked: Dorm beds are very inexpensive but unlike other budget accommodations the mattresses are actually comfortable. Room was large for a central city hotel.

Disliked: I disliked no controllable AC unit in the room. It got too hot some nights.

Liked: The location was okay but there is another hostel on the same street closer. I did feel secure. The staff was always friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone spoke a conversational amount of English.

Disliked: I knew before I came there would be no Wi-Fi in the rooms but I didn’t realize how inconvenient it would be. There is no hot water...but I have learned that is standard for China, it only gets lukewarm. The locations of the attractions are not THAT far but the distance is exaggerated...Forbidden City and ECT. Are more like a 20/25 min walk...it makes a difference when it’s cold outside!
