Liked: Staff was super nice, beds were comfortable. Its a really chill place, I'd definitely recommend it.

Disliked: Restaurant was a little pricey, you can get the same amount of food for half the price outside the hostel; you're paying for convenience.

Liked: A little expensive, but it's beijing. Amazing staff! they are always trying to help you if you need help. The atmosphere was amazing, people were open to meeting new people, made a couple friends it was a good hostel! And if you r looking for cheap local food, right around the corner, there are some chinese restaurants, serving rice, fried rice, and noodle, noodle soup, cost you around 8-13quai per meal.

Disliked: the location is a bit off from the centre, not much tho and there's a subway station nearby. From the subway station, forbidden city is about 15 minutes ride, so not really off from the centre of the city. but a little pricey for the service i got. Although beijing is usually more expensive, i think i could find cheaper hostels providing the same service in beijing.

Liked: Its hard to find the words to say how much I enjoyed staying at the Happy Dragon Hostel and the Happy Dragon Courtyard. The second is way nicer but the atmosphere is better in the hostel. I think its the best hostel i've ever stayed in 10 years of traveling. The girls working there are just so nice, friendly and helpful, they just solve all of your problems, and treat you as if you where part of the happy dragon family. I have no complaints, Betty, Summer and Kathy are the ones that I spoke and befriended more with. The whole staff makes you feel like home. I've returned to beijing several times in this trip and I always go for the Happy Dragon. I had so much fun, meet cool people, made good friends...

Disliked: Well maybe i could say that the beer at the bar was a bit expensive comparing it to some other bars in Beijing, but anyway it was perfect...

Liked: The staff is absolutely service oriented. They are ready to listen and help with a smile and usefulness. Printing service, city directions for shopping, quick tour of the room. They arranged taxi to take me in the night for the airport with no delays. They also upgraded my bed with no extra charge. Simply put, excellent service.

Disliked: Location, there is not much beyond the doorway. You step outside of the hostel into a boring alley.

Liked: Happy Dragon was located in an excellent spot in Beijing with many tourist hotspots within walking distance.The subway (Dongsi) is only a 5 minute walk away. The staff a the property were very friendly and helpful especially Betty. I would definitely stay at this hostel again. The bar/restaurant also had amazing food, both Western and Chinese!

Disliked: As a note to the hostel, on your webpage you should inform guests that a 100 CYN deposit is require on top of the balance when checking in.
