Liked: The owner and staff were EXTREMELY nice. The place was very clean. The bathrooms were also very clean. These were two important factors for me. I also loved being in old Beijing. We had an authentic experience. I did not want something catered to westerners. This was the perfect mix between authentic experience ...... and clean beds and bathrooms!

Disliked: Nothing. They were so nice and accommodating to us. They went out of their way to help us and guide us to prevent us from being scammed when we toured around.

Liked: Very friendly staff and nice courtyard to chill in.

Disliked: Noise travels a bit as the bedrooms were aare all around the centraly courtyard. But that's the nature of living in a Hutong, so it was still worth the experience!

Liked: Staff are super helpful and very friendly. Good communication before arrival as well!

Disliked: Walls are a bit thin so sometimes can hear others talking early in the morning. But it wasn't too much of a problem.

Liked: Excellent staff who spoke great English, provided good itinerary suggestions and directions. Comfortable common area. Great character. Located in a hutong, a 15 minute walk from the Nanluoguxiang subway station and market. Good wifi.

Disliked: The owner smokes inside although it is usually contained but at times you could smell the smoke.

Liked: Great feel to the hostel, very relaxed atmosphere and nice settings. The neighbourhood is lovely to explore and the locals friendly, a quiet hostel with good beds and nice and cool in the mid summer heat. Staff were good at giving advice and always on hand. Breakfast dumplings were good also.

Disliked: Would have been nicer if the subway was closer, but it was only about 12 minutes away. Only a problem if very tired or very wet.

Liked: Location was excellent, if a little difficult to find at first. The reception staff were excellent, helping with all trips, recommendations and services. Very comfortable room; quiet, good size and very clean. Lovely, relaxing courtyard to sit and enjoy a beer and a book. Would stay again!

Disliked: Nothing, apart from slightly musty room when we first arrived but soon disappeared.
