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.
