Liked: I highly recommend this hostel! The hostel is clean and comfortable. Most importantly though, the staff are incredible. They are very warm and welcoming and eager to help you with anything from booking tickets to your plans for the day. It is a great place to meet people with lots of group meals. Plus, at the moment, there are kittens to play with!

Liked: most of all, the stall were very kind and helpful. the 2 manager ladies, Jean and Shell, were both so friendly and made my stay pleasant and easier. When i complained the weak was too weak, the next day it was fixed, i feel well listened : -)Beijing, or china in general was extremely difficult place to backpack unless it's a group package for many reasons so having little travel infos are important like bus numbers and so on. They well provided me with such little info. (So many places here you have to take the local buses not the subway which makes non chinese speakers soooo difficult.)

Liked: Chinese Box was a great hostel to stay at. Its the perfect size to get to know the people and the staff well so you don't feel like your staying in a hotel. The staff works hard to make sure that you get everything you need and are there to answer any question you have or give recommendations about the city. The rooms were nice and warm at night and the showers were hot, it was great, definitely stay at Chinese Box if you are in Beijing.

Customer review

02 March 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Incredibly friendly atmosphere, promoted by get-together suppers: for example, dumpling night (free, and you can learn to *make* dumplings too if you like) or Chinese family dinner. When I arrived, they were just off to a Tibetan restaurant so I jumped right in, got to know the guests and staff and had a good meal.The staff are always ready to help you plan your trip -- whether it's taking the subway to Tian'anmen Square, hiking the Great Wall or going to Tibet (Joe seems to be something of a specialist on touring Tibet) -- and they'll make you a hearty breakfast before you go.I made great friends here -- with both the staff and fellow guests -- and I'll be back.

Liked: The best place I have stayed in China, but expect the facilities (bathroom, showers) as kind of basic compared to western standards. The owner Joe is the best chinese guy I have met, you can ask him for anything, he is always helpful. The hostel organizes stuff (free dumpling making party for example) every night, so it's easy to meet new people if you want that.

Liked: This was a wonderful and safe hostel with perhaps the friendliest atmosphere of any that I have stayed at. The owner and staff are always around to help you to get you where you need to be. What is more, they are very friendly and will sit down to talk to you and make sure you are having a good time. This nice atmosphere also promotes everyone staying there to be very friendly, and it takes no time at all to meet new friends with whom you can see the city with. I will be visiting again!
