12 September 2009 Andrew would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel is great, the staff are amazing, everything is AWESOME. I would actually consider moving to Beijing and living in this hostel, it's so great. All the staff are so helpful and just hang out with you all day whilst you sit in the bar which is great. Never a dull moment. The bar is awesome! the guests are great! Great location. There was a party on Friday night and I had a train booked to Shanghai but the party was great, so I didn't want to go, so Amanda that works here even came to the train station with me to help me change my train ticket! If you ever go to Beijing, STAY HERE! Big up to Luke and Hugh

05 September 2009 Bev would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were brilliant and it was very lively. My only complaint is the one communal room/bar is small and allows smoking so non-smokers could not breath and it was not very nice to eat your food in the room.

Liked: amazing hostel! This was the first place i stayed in China and after travelling around to several other hostels I have realised how much of a hidden gem this place is. The staff are brilliant and so helpful they definitely make the stay special. There is a very homely atmosphere there which is so important (and what every other place lacked). If you're going to beijing, definitely stay in the happy dragon hostel.

Liked: The Happy Dragon was fantastic - It was a great place to stay, staff made the place amazing they could not do enough for us it was brilliant - laundry came out really clean, internet was good - the bar area and food good we can't rate this hostel high enough - if we manage to make it back to Beijing in the future this will be the first place on our list for accomodation.

Liked: The atmosphere was excellent and the rooms were clean and had lockers. They also offer activities like a bike ride (really cool) and Chinese lessons (both for free!!!), as well as tours to the Great Wall and evening shows. The best thing in the hostel though is the staff: they are really friendly and helpful, AWESOME!

Stuart Fraser

18 August 2009 Stuart would recommend this property

Liked: The staff here are incredibly friendly and welcoming, even more so than in the many other great hostels I have stayed at in China. The rooms are ok with lockers big enough for valuables or people travelling light but not for a whole backpack. It isn't especially spacious and there isn't a huge amount of common space. Just a small restaurant/bar and an internet area. This is probably a reflection of it's location in Beijing and may be true of other hostels in the city. It's conveniently located close to a subway station and I would definitely stay here again.
