Liked: Friendly helpful staff, convenient location in the middle of the bar and embassy area, clean and comfortable with decent food available at the restaurant. One drawback is that the hostel is a long walk from the nearest subway station, Dong si shi tiao.

Customer review

24 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: We stayed in a private room at this hostel and had a good time. The downstairs bar serves good beer, and the rooms were clean. The internet in our room was quick. The staff were helpful when it came to booking tours outside of the city, and could point you in the right direction of Beijing's sites. The food in the Cafe is good, although you sometimes have to wait a while of it to arrive and they can (when busy) forget the odd order. The main downside for us was that the air-con in our room was very noisy and this was not fixed despite us complaining. Overall though, we had a good stay and would recommend this hostel to others.

Liked: the people here are not so friendly as i expected. Yes, but every one has their own things to do. I tried to talk with some people here, but failed.And the most important is that DO NOT TRUST THE TRAVELING PACKAGE IN THIS HOSTEL. THOSE ARE SO EXPENSIVE. BUT THE PRICE OF THE ROOM IS REALLY GOOD.

Lee Atkinson

11 June 2009 Lee would recommend this property

Liked: The staff we're excellent, really helpful and available all the time. We couldn't have achieved everything we wanted to do and see without their help. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable, I've stayed in much worse hotel rooms at 3 times the price. Location was pretty good too with restaurants and a supermarket and an ATM just around the corner. Would definitely recommend as the hostel helped make my stay in Beijing even better than I imagined!
