Liked: Some of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly! We received a warm welcome when we first checked in. The rooms are good value for money, clean and warm (which at this time of year was important).The bar is very cozy and the bar man very freindly and always happy (and singing).Easy to get from Capital Airport and subway only a short walking distance.Note, best to have hostel name and address written in Chinese characters for taxi driver.Lee (the manager) and recpetion staff helped us with our forward travel plans - very helpful!Michelle and Steve from Scotland! :-)

Liked: The hostel is clean and not too far from a subway station. The rooms are quite small but we managed fine. The bar area is nice and cozy and the food was good. The staff are very friendly and helpful we were there for their 1st birthday and were given free duck and cake! We also spent a night on the wall and they kept our bags overnight for us.

Customer review

05 November 2009

Liked: Good: * Most of the staff were very nice. * Average Beds, good doonas. * Food served in lounge area was pretty good, and cheap too. * Good location, close to forbidden city etc, 2min walk to Subway, actual street is a bit of a dump though. * Free dumpling party thing on Friday nights. Very noisy though. * Our 4 bed dorm had its own attached bathroom.Bad: * Beer was expensive. * When we checked in they had us split into seperate rooms. No big deal but kinda annoying. Sorted it out after our objections. * Wifi didn't work in our room at all and was pretty shit in the lounge aswell. Staff put a note up saying, if it's too weak, use a chord. Aaah.. Didn't we pay to have wifi in our room!? * NOISE! You can hear EVERYTHING from your room. Even at 1am you can hear ppl (often staff) talking in the lobby and music being played. * Only one very small common-room which doubles as restaurant. Always crappy pop music being played really loud & lots of ppl smoking. Not at all a relaxing place to chill out after a day exploring. * As above, nowhere to just rest and watch a movie or read a book. * Pretty crappy bathroom, made the whole room STINK like rotten vegetables all day everyday. * Lots of smoking in lobby and restaurant, often by the staff, makes it a horrible environment to sit and eat a meal or read the paper/surf the net. At the end of the day our clothes stunk of cigarette smoke! * Heaps of mosquitoes in our room every day. No idea how they get there. * Pretty flimsy lockers, could easily be broken into if someone tried. * Staff were nice but their info/directions were fairly vague and even wrong sometimes.

Liked: the location was great: right next to the top of the forbidden city and close to all transport hubs, which was great now the weather in Beijing is getting cooler! the staff and atmosphere were fantastic: helpful and friendly and the bar/food was excellent. Good social crowd and the place to meet other travellers. Rooms were clean and tidy. Also offered all the tours etc so plenty to do in the day, in fact almost too much to do! Would definitely recommend and stay there again!

Liked: Great Hostel. Really easy to meet people in the little bar/lounge area. This was my first stop so was a little daunting but felt at home and would recommend to all. Food in the bar was also pretty good if you cant be bothered to go out. I really enjoyed the olympic village area - for me a must for any visitor!
