Liked: This is a cheap place and has a great location. It's literally right in front of Beijing main train station and has a subway stop 30 seconds away.

Disliked: I dislike the noise and not so soft beds, but totally worth it for it's location!

Liked: Location very good, cheap.

Disliked: No social areas unless consuming extortionately over-priced drinks in a bar utterly lacking in both atmosphere and (with good reason) patrons. Internet theoretically only available in aforementioned bar, actually not available at all. Dormitories have no windows, making them suffocatingly hot and stuffy, even in April. I dread to think what they would be like in August.

Liked: Incredibly easy to get to from the subway; Line 2, Beijing Railway station, go out Exit A, you'll see it before you finish climbing the elevator.I had a 4 bed mixed dorm, didn't have bunk beds, plenty of space for a hostel.Super cheap.

Disliked: Kitchen only on level 3 (I didn't use it). Bought a bottle of water and coffee, they were very expensive for crap coffee from a thermos (10 RMB) and not that great bottled water 500ml (8 RMB, total rip off). So though the bed was super cheap, better to buy food etc elsewhere.

Liked: The location. The rooms were ok too, actual beds rather than dorm beds, but very hard. The washing machines were reasonably priced.

Disliked: It was dirty and dingy, with very little natural light. The Internet was very flaky, and turned off at midnight, for some reason. The bar was dirty and dark, cigarette ends all over the floor. They played terrible music very loudly making it impossible to Skype. There was a communal kitchen, but it was industrial and not very clean. I wouldn't want to prepare food there. There was an overpriced breakfast available, but I didn't want to eat in the dirty bar. Staff could hardly speak English and were pretty rude. I would never stay here again.
