Liked: The atmosphere was absolutely fantastic. The staff were very friendly & helpful & even offered for me to sit & have lunch with them one day. As well as helping me with directions, sight advice & even purchasing of a sim card (no easy feat if you don't speak Mandarin). It was much more interesting to stay here than at a hotel & I met lots of very nice & friendly guests.

Disliked: The directions to VIP Deluxe & Hutong#2 are WRONG! Where it says to turn right from Fuchengmen st you actually need to turn LEFT. Or you can turn left before the main st (if you are feeling adventurous) on the lane after shop 193, follow that down (many good food shops here) & turn left at An Ping Xing alley (main alley at the end) & they are both on the right hand side - look for the signs. If you've reached the main road you've gone to far. The beds are a little hard (where isn't in China?)

Liked: Very helpful and friendly staff. Great location super close to the metro.

Disliked: The beds were quite hard, but that is the norm in China. Also a littl chilly, we were here in November, but there was a heater in the room and they gave us extra blankets upon request.

Liked: It was a nice place and the staff were as helpful as possible. The location is very good with only a 3 minute walk to Xisi subway station. I would stay here again as it was very comfortable.

Disliked: I think it could be a little cheaper per night, as close to $50USD a night is a little pricey for a place that doesn't give you a fresh towel everyday.

Liked: One of the best places I've stayed in years. So refreshing to stay in a small, friendly place with so much character and not anothyer bland kids' party hostel. Fantastic staff, lovely sociable courtyard area, a million miles in atmosphere from the busy streets of Beijing. Highly recommended.

Liked: This is the 2nd time I've stayed at Templeside, and each house has its own characteristic charm! #1 is hostel-style: great for meeting people and sharing journeys. Like the website says, this is a courtyard-house (siheyuan) and getting in/out lets you wander through the alleys that make old Beijing famous.

Customer review

18 May 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It's a siheyuan, located down a "hutong" (traditional, courtyard house) was fabulous! We were 150m from the local market, bus stops, and then just a few minutes' walk to off-the-beaten-track museums. There were very helpful tour suggestions. Bobby, the owner/manager, was super-helpful and so accommodating. The other guests weren't all-that-friendly, but it's not a reflection on Templeside. The staff seemed to make up for that grumpiness!
