Liked: If you travel in a group so you can book the whole room, or if you just stay one night, I think you will be ok.

Disliked: If you travel light and dont mind to wake up and be told to pack your things and move to another room, or even another building a few minutes away(!), before you go out sightseeing in the morning, then this is the place for you! If you just get a dormitory bed, you will never be sure that the bed you sleep in one night is the bed you sleep in the next. Depending on the booking situation they are moving people around to make place for groups/families when needed. Also try to avoid the "other building" as it is worse than the main house. I am never returning here as a solo backpacker.

Liked: Authentic Hutong house. Good atmosphere and character. If you want to live right among the Chinese, then this is the way to go. Also, the ping pong table is a definite plus.

Disliked: Not the best place to meet fellow travellers as mainly families stay there. So you should know what you are looking for.

Liked: Staff friendly and very helpful, especially ordering taxi's, booking day trips, recommending local places to eat & get grocery items. Staff able to understand English, which was fantastic! Difficult for taxi drivers to locate, however staff provide directions when driver phoned. Beds comfortable; room clean, tidy & warm. Would stay here again

Disliked: Private bathroom was not private - shared with staff (?)Not related to accommodation - be careful if getting a taxi from airport. Travelling in a party of 5 with children & not wanting to be separated, we got ripped off with the taxi fare, even though we went to the taxi rank. BEWARE of private taxi operators who have false documentation & no meters. Even though we knew this, we still got caught out. We took two taxi's from then on.

Liked: It's a really nice place with a chinese atmosphere. The staff was friendly and really heplful. It was possible and easy to order tickets to the Beijing Opera, acrobacy show, Kung Fu-show and even a transportation to the Great Wall.

Disliked: Location seemed a bit far away from everything, although there was a subway station near by, about 15 min. walk. Inside the room it was a bit moist and it smelled like it too. Safety boxes would have been nice for passports etc.

Liked: Prima guesthouse voor een goede prijs in het relatief dure Beijing. Ze hebben ook een grote kamer bestaande uit twee verdiepingen met boven 2 2-pers bedden waarvan 1 met een super goede boxspring matras. Daarnaast kunnen in de woonkamer beneden ook nog 2 mensen slapen op de bedbanken. Dus een prima guesthouse voor gezinnen met 3 a 4 kinderen! Verder erg sfeervol. In de buurt kun je prima eten en in het guesthouse kun je ook een prima westers ontbijt bestellen.

Disliked: De Dorm room ligt in de kelder en beschikt i.t.t. het vermelde niet over een eigen badkamer. Deze badkamer wordt ook door het eigen personeel gebruikt.
