Liked: NIce hostel - lots info about how to get to places in Beijing + staff are helpful The area is very nice and also quiet- near 2 subway stations so transportation is easy.

Disliked: If you want to stay somewhere within walking distances of bars this is probably not for you. Also on my floor there were only 3 shared showers - not a problem for me but if it was busy in the summer months it might be annoying.

Liked: The Hostel is located in a traditional Hutong in the center of Beijing. It is a beautiful place and uneblievable high value for money. I stayed in the double room no. 111 with private bathroom. It was around 20sqm, nice and clean.

Disliked: Free Wifi in the Lobby kills the communication among travellers.

Liked: I really like the hostel, as it is very convinient to reach from the main railway station. The rooms were clean and the staff always friendly if you had any question

Disliked: The hostel is not like a proper hostel, so if you want to meet people it's not the perfect place. But except for that it was a very pleasant stay.

Liked: We had a great double room with heating, big bathroom, free wifi and big bed. The staff here were superb and we booked tours and show tickets with transport which were excellent. Good location too near metro.

Disliked: I have one criticism and it is that the restaurant food was not so great.

Liked: I was staying in a double room with attached bathroom and I was pleasantly surprised by quality of the room (spacious with decent furniture). The breakfast options in the on-site cafe were good (c.£2.50 extra). Also, it was quiet, which is not always easy to come by in Beijing!

Disliked: Compared to some hostels it didn't seem to be very sociable or characterful. Also the location is a bit of a pain as the nearest metro is about a 10 minute walk away, and there aren't any interesting sites nearby (the nearest is the Forbidden City which is a 30 minute walk)

Liked: Placed in an small hutong. A small tourist information desk inside the hostel, that affords a lot of different tours an tickets. Very nice staff! The twin ensuite rooms are really big and nice. If I go to Beijing once more, I would definitely stay here again. A lot of food (and breakfast) to choose among on the hostel´s menu, and quite cheap internet on good computers. About 5 minutes walk to the closest subway station. English speaking staff. I can´t think of anything that is bad here, the best hostel I´ve ever stayed in.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

10 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel was easy enough to find, with the help of locals and some directions. The staff was good, but small, making some of the processes like checking-in or getting food sometimes pretty difficult. It is also a place that many different travelers use, making it a safe place to store your things and sleep for the night. But unfortunately for these rooms, they were quite dirty: the bathroom drain was clogged, the tile was filthy, and the beds needed to be cleaned long before we arrived. Also, there are no towels, television accesses, or wi-fi internet, making some of the email checking and picture uploading impossible. Overall, a 7 or 6.5 out of 10.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
