Liked: Great location, very secure, need key card to get into the room area. Just so happened that we pretty much had the dorm room to ourselves as no one else had booked.

Disliked: Room wasnt cleaned after previous guests. Staff weren't very friendly, not much english.

Liked: Location since it's only a 10 minute walk to Tiananmen Square and Qianmen subway station. Even though it's advertised as a hostel it is an actual HOTEL and is set up like one. Even the sign on the building says so: Kings Joy Hotel! LolI spent two nights here before heading south to Datong and Xi'an. I'll definitely book a couple more nights at Kings Joy when I'm back in Beijing in two weeks.

Disliked: Nothing really.

Liked: The location, and nothing more.

Disliked: It's regrettable that the one thing that made King's Joy fun -- namely, the lively bar on the 6th floor -- was shut down in order that they might use the space to squeeze in a few more rooms. Also, like most hostels in China, this one no longer has an international flair. I've been to King's Joy twice in the past, and back then it was a place where you could hang out with people from all over the world. Now, it's mainly just a cheap flophouse filled with loud and obnoxious locals. The owners are going for the money, period.
