Abedin Rafique thinks…

"The location was great (bar street is really a 10 minute walk away), and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The cafe/bar on the property is great!"

Liked: Excellent location. Very clean. Friendly staff.

Disliked: Beds were a little hard and food and drinks were a little pricey (15 for a beer and 30ish for cheapest food). It's also a bit annoying that I turned up to book a room and ended up having to use their computers as you could only book the 8 bed dorms online. But seriously, these were the only bad things about the hostel I can think of. I thoroughly recommend.

Liked: Great location, helpful staff, nice common area. I really loved the location as it's close to tourist areas, bar street and shopping centers.

Disliked: The rooms are very basic. Also, there is no elevator so it's tiring lugging your backpack/suitcase up 4 flights of stairs!

Liked: Once you were inside, it seem clean

Disliked: Everything, the location was at the back of a building site, car parking lot, did not look inviting at all. The staff were very unfriendly, and not helpful, food was very pricey, and so was the beer, and they made no effect getting people together and talking.... not a fun place to stay. No choice of movies or music..... Just boring!! They also lost my train ticket, very unprofessional and did not make me feel comfortable at all.

Liked: They have a nice bar. You can drink good draught beer there. Staff is really friendly and helpful. They sent a way description after we had booked. We did not find the hostel in the darkness although we were already very close to it. People around adviced us to take a taxi but we asked again at the reception of another hotel. The reception gave Sanlitun hostel a call and told us to go to the next traffic light where we were picked up
