Liked: Location was good. Hotel is clean and service of staff was good. Room was cold but staff brought addition heater so problem was solved.

Disliked: At the time we stayed the hostel was renovating their reception and bar. Therefore there was no warm general room to hang out. Also all activities where cancelled. It was (western) new years eve and unfortunatly they didn't offer any alternative.

Liked: It is extremely value for money for the location. Its in between 2 metro stations, has the famous gui jie food market, lama temple and even nanluoguxiang walking street within walking distance. Changes my towel and cleans toilet daily too

Disliked: Not really a good place to make friends. Maybe its winter and people would rather stay in their rooms.

Liked: I loved the location!! You can't beat being a five minute walk away from the metro! Also I appreciate the fact that they have free wifi and a kitchen that works from 8am-11pm, and you can even order breakfast earlier if you plan the night before. I also liked that they provide you with free linen and towels, and that the staff will help you with anything, from getting a disposable razor to explaining to you the best/cheapest ways to visit various sights. Also, they were kind enough to warn me about the lunar eclipse that was happening one night!

Disliked: The bathroom would get rather dirty...I'm not very sure people cleaned in the rooms everyday really, either. But you can ask for new towels and sheets whenever you want for free. The bathroom just had a moldy smell to it, since the shower rains over the entire bathroom because of the flimsy circular partial curtain.

Liked: This Hostel will let you experience the reel Beijing life. By being directly located in the Hutong, and beside the Lama Temple, you will experience daily China in a far better way than in a 30 floors hostel!

Disliked: The bar is being renovated. Luckily it a terasse outside and its winter right now.

Liked: This hostel has a really cool atmosphere, neat decorations and common areas where it's easy to socialize. The bar was also nice and there's a pool table. The staff was cheerful and helped me find which bus I needed to take to get to a few parks. Awesome location, right by wudaoying hutong and llama temple subway station. Not far from sanlitun either. One of the computers there has a VPN too so you can get on facebook

Disliked: internet was SO SLOW! Both the wifi and the desktop computers. Beggars can't be choosers though. Rooms were a bit dirty and smelly, probably a major side effect of the fact that you're not supposed to flush toilet paper. If you don't speak Chinese not all of the staff members can help you and you might have to wait to have your questions answered (I loved the staff though!)

Liked: The hostel is close to subway stations, and busy street with plenty of restaurants that opened till like 2AM.People interaction is very good and I met people from Germany, French, and we all had great conversation.Bike rental is very helpful to me. It costs only 20 RMB a day, and 300RMB deposit. Make sure you keep your deposit paper copy, or you are not going to get your deposit back.

Disliked: Staff needs to work on their service and attitude towards their customers. I think it's a general problem in China Service industry and it just takes time to improve.
