Liked: This is my home away from home in China. Each time I visit Beijing, I stay at this property. The restaurant has reasonable food for reasonable Beijing price. They have spicy, no9t spicy, meat or meatless dishes to choose from. If you don't want to learn the language you can speak to the staff, they speak English as well as Chinese. They can assist you with getting directions to your destinations, whether you want to take a taxi, bus, or subway. It is also conviently located near subway lines, buses and train stations. There are supermarkets, shopping, theaters, bars,restaurants, etc within walking distance. There are western and nonwestern toilets and soap and tissue in the bathrooms, which is a plus. Like most hostel, be sure to bring your toiletries such as towel, shower shoes, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, etc. There are dogs running around like a home away from home. Most travellers are very friendly, so be ready to meet many new people and a friendly family like staff.peace shalomtjuana

Disliked: Because it is a popular place, sometimes the community bathrooms are not always clean.

Liked: The place is conveniently located in Sanlitun, friendly helpful staff, great western breakfast or price and quantity compared to the overpriced sanlitun village restaurants. The omelette is a huge serving! My private room is always clean and perfect for one or two people and great price!

Disliked: Wifi could be a bit stronger times when i m in the area.

Liked: All the staff were friendly. The food was delicious especially if you are looking for Western style food done right and the hostel is located next to a string of delicious Chinese restaurants. The best part was it was very easy to book and decided what to do in Beijing by just hanging out in the hostel and talking to the staff. I The showers were always warm and the hostel rooms and bathrooms were very clean.

Disliked: It is about a 10 minute walk from the metro which is not a big deal at all but you definitely notice it after a long day of sightseeing or in the cold winter weather

Liked: Location is good for eating out cheaply and close to metro. Staff were helpful and it was generally clean. More like a cheap hotel than a hostel as it has a bar/restaurant as the main common area.

Disliked: Wifi could be painfully slow at times. Also, the music in the bar was terrible - the same songs (including James Blunt!) every day.
