Liked: Great price, location, and value! I've stayed in the dorms before and they are also really well done with a private locker and decent showers/toilets. This time, I stayed in the single ensuite, and it was a great! Can't find anything comparable for price or location, so this is a gem!

Disliked: The ceiling in my room could use a coat of paint, but otherwise everything was good.

Liked: The showers are GREAT! 24hrs /7 days. Wireless very quick & reliable. Great food served right through the day & drinks cheap. The dorms were warm... Maybe a little too warm at times. Individual lockers . Staff were friendly & approachable but & spoke relatively good English.

Disliked: My dorm had an obvious old aged western "long stayer" in it- a COMPLETE NO NO for any YOUTH hostel. This guy felt it was appropriate to sleep naked, snore/talk in his sleep & generally be a slob in his bed space. This should not be allowed as it wrecks the ambience & vibe of the place. Seriously, these guys need to NOT have their midlife crisis in a youth backpackers hostel- NOT cool! The pet kitten! Cute, I'll give ya' that.... But not when it's running all over the tables that people sit & eat at!

Liked: I really liked how friendly and helpful the staff were. I found it to be a clean and safe place while I was in Beijing.

Disliked: I had some trouble finding the property when I gave the hostel's directions to the taxi driver, but I called the front desk and they helped right away.

Liked: The location is not in the center and most of the taxi drivers might not know where the place is, but as far as i learned it id typical for Beijing. The hostel is close to the subway station and bus stop, close to the big shopping mall, market and bars&clubs street.There is a nice and cozy bar in the hostel with good prices, and it is a great place to meet new people.The staff is nice and friendly and very helpful and their english is way better than that of the staff in big expensive hotels. There are guided tours organized from the hostel, they are not for free, but the price is ok. So you will never be bored staying there!The rooms are average, have safe lockers, you just have to ask for a paddle lock on reception.

Disliked: Common shower/toilet was not my fav place there, apparently :)but must admit that the place was cleaned regularly and mostly there were no troubles

Liked: The hostel is located in the perfect place, it is near the markets and restaurants, bars and clubs, and is also only a short walk from the subway. The staff are really helpful and speak very good english. The bar area served good food and they have different deals on each night for the food and drinks, the hotpot night is especially good! The rooms are a good size and the beds are comfy the showers have hot water in them. The location means there is not too much noise coming from the street aswell so you don't get alot of drunk people coming past your window at all hours of the night.

Disliked: The hostel can be a little bit hard to find because it is in a back street and you cannot smoke in the bar area.
