Liked: The hostel is very clean, cosy and the atmosphere was serene. But most of all the staff was very accommodating. Here I also met other travellers whom are very nice and made new friends. Highly recommended place to stay.

Disliked: The only thing which I find uncomfortable was the shower.The water was very slow and the holder of the shower head was spoilt and cant hold the shower head, thus very inconvenient.Should be repaired. Other than this everything was perfect.

Liked: Nice quiet location just a short walk from XiSi metro station. My room was ok

Disliked: My room was very dark as the lighting wasn't bright enough. The only other problem was horrible drain smells coming from the sink - but that problem could be eliminated by leaving the sink with the plug in and filling it with water.Given the length of my stay I would have liked them to empty the rubbish bins every day (they were only emptied when I asked)

Liked: Very friendly staff, always ready to help and give advice. Speaking good English. There's a BBQ on Mondays, family dinner on Wednesdays and on Fridays there's a dumpling party. Nice common area where there's always guests around

Disliked: The beds are clean, you get fresh linen when you arrive, but the rest of the bedrooms could be cleaned more properly.

Liked: ideal location for the metro into the tourist spots of Beijing, Don't make a judgement on forst impressions, the alley way to the hostel looks like a dump, and i thought whether i had made a huge mistake in chosing this hostel, but once inside the gates, the welcome is very charming, free first drink, lovely breakfast, free monday night BBQ. I travelled on my own to Beijing but met many in my situation and socialised with these people.

Disliked: The first alley way walk to the hostel, yr first impression is totally incorrect

Liked: Great location for lone travelers and backpackers, and the staff are amazing. Very clean facilities and beds, breakfasts are very good as well (best mosly in beiging by my account). Dominant advantage: staff give off wonderful tips for touring through Beijing's less renowned sights.

Disliked: Not the cheapest option on the list. Them Hutong alleyways leading to the hostel ain't the prettiest, though the neighbors're quite friendly.
