Liked: The location is perfect, just a short walk from two metro stations and near a relatively walkable area in Beijing. It's also easy to get to other main destinations because it's close to the metro which has two lines running through it. The restaurant was convenient and pretty good food.

Disliked: Rooms were not well maintained, our room had a lot of mold on the ceiling and the bathroom was just wiped down every day and not thoroughly cleaned. Also the beds were so hard it was difficult to sleep.

Liked: First off, when I enter the hostel, the staffs were so friendly and helpful, and they did speak English. Secondly, the staffs there will clean the room and the room toilet everyday, I rate 5 stars for the cleanliness. I think the atmosphere there was great, the building was built in Chinese style and was full of character which really worth going to feel China! I really enjoyed staying in it.

Disliked: I like the hostel so well that

Liked: Clean room. Good atmosphere in the social areas. Great variety of food, was nice to have Western food available. Booked Kung Fu, Acrobatics and Great Wall (Jinshanling) events through the hostel and transport provided which was mostly good. Staff were English speaking and helpful. The owner was often around to help and advise, which was nice.

Disliked: Our room was directly opposite the kitchen and the (rather dirty) fridge in the corridor, where staff are extremely noisy from 8am, causing sleeping problems. One of the events we were not provided transport back, but given money to get a taxi back, which proved difficult on a busy evening and didn't cover the entire cost. Seeing a rat run past our bedroom and the kitchen to under the fridge was rather dissatisfying. Our bedroom door was left open by the cleaners for quite a few hours while we was out, which the hostel told us was due to a leaking air conditioner, however I believe this was not true - there was absolutely no sign of a leak and we later found the door to be faulty, whereby it sometimes the latch gets stuck, so the door probably blew open when we was out. As a result, the hostel seems to have lied because they didn't know the reason.

Liked: Location is great. The bar has a nice rooftop terrace, reasonably priced beers and a 2 for 1 happy hour.

Disliked: The wifi is quite unreliable and you can't receive it in the rooms. The great wall tour is a real downer, as you actually spend more time in shops than at the sights. This shopping (40 mins at a jade factory, half an hour at a teahouse and half an hour at a pearl store) was not announced until the start of the tour. Staff at these places are really pushy. Most importantly, the need to go to these places makes the guide rush you through the sights, which leaves you about 1.5 hour at the great wall in practice. I suppose the hostel cant really help the way the tour is conducted but they could at least notify you beforehand.

Liked: It has style and character, with the hostel decorated Chinese-style.

Disliked: The staff did not provide much help in helping us secure bed space during the last day, which we booked beforehand but cancelled. They were not as eager to retain repeat customers and give priority to them as much as they are willing to welcome new customers.

Liked: Very nice hostel, good location and helpful staff. Roxie in particular really went out of her way to help make sure i got the train tickets i needed, she's a star. All rooms are air conditioned and come with lockers, food is cheap by Western standards, you can get on Facebook with their computers and they offer bikes for rent. Location is great, right next to the Llama temple (worth a visit) and 2 minutes from Beijing's very efficient and straightforward subway system. Also available: laundry (10 yuan per kg), 600ml beer for 10 yuan, movie nights, Chinese lessons etc. They'll also book train tickets for you but take a 30 yuan commission (the tickets are delivered to the hostel the same evening which is handy)

Disliked: Nothing of note.

Liked: It is in the center of Beijing, not far from metro station. We got an extra free beer. Internet connection is pretty slow but there are two computers in the lobby that you can use for free. There is also a printer available. The staff is very helpful and speak English very well.

Disliked: I have nothing to complain about except that it is very hot in the corridor and I didn't receive a locker (there were 7 lockers and 8 beds in my room :)).

Liked: Great location, close to underground, supermarkets and local food stalls and/or restaurants. Wi-fi in the room, although sometimes didn't work very well. Fantástica localización, muy cerca del metro, supermercados y puestos locales para comer y/o restaurantes. Wi-fi en la habitación aunque a veces no funcionaba muy bien.

Disliked: Maybe the buffet was too expensive for what it was. You need to rush if you want to try the Beijink duck Quizas el buffet fue demasiado caro para lo que era. Tienes que darte prisa si quieres probar el pato pekinés.

Liked: La ubicación el hostal es estupenda: a 5 minutos de la estación de metro "Yonghegong Lama Temple" y dentro de uno de los hutong (barrios tradicionales) de la ciudad. Te ofrece la posibilidad de visitar el curioso Templo del Lama, el Templo de la Tierra y su parque (a escasos pasos tras el metro) y comer en alguno de los numerosos restaurantes de la calle Yonghegong y alrededores (no os perdáis los dumplings de los pequeños negocios). Además, está cerca de Sanlitum (para tomar una cervecita nocturna), Tiananmen y la Ciudad Prohibida. Y ahora ya dentro del hostal... las habitaciones asi como las zonas comunes son cómodas y limpias. Siempre que voy a Beijing me alojo aquí y es fácil charlar con los otros huéspedes en la recepción o el bar. Esta vez coincidí con otros hispanohablantes. El personal es ENCANTADOR. En la recepción se habla inglés y siempre que he necesitado algo me han ofrecido una respuesta inmediata y cortés. Si tienes suerte coincidirás también con una de las recepcionistas (muy guapa y con unas gafas verdes) que habla español y te dedicará unos minutos extra. No dejes de pasar por el bar y si te sobran 20 yuanes deja que las camareras te preparen un cappuccino (nada que ver con los pseudocafés que sirven en la ciudad... ). Los desayunos son abundantes y el servicio rápido y agradable. Además, si te gusta el billar podrás echar unas partidillas en la terraza

Disliked: Nunca he encontrado algo que me desagrade
