Liked: location is good, but the staff made a mistake with our reservations and tried to charge us an additional 500 RMB. Wasted half an hour of my time until they figured out that it was their mistake.

Liked: Really good location, especially if youre heading out on the train. Good tours and a nice bar (although unhelpful staff). Walls are like paper so you cab hea every thing and being close to the bathroom meant you could hear the chinese men honking up their saliva...a regular thig in china.

Liked: The location was excellent as it is near a subway stop easily able to get to the airport line. The font desk agent I worked with spoke English which helped me get to the Great Wall tour accross the city after my initial plans with the hostel's booking fell thru for some reason.

Liked: I liked the general organisation, the fact that you can leave your luggage even though you've checked out. I enjoyed the half-chinese, half-european breakfast. But it was quite noisy and the floor of my room obviously had not been cleaned.

Liked: It was handy for the train station and Tiamanmen Square. But the bar was a bit gloomy and the wi-fi was unreliable. Also, there were no locker keys but the security box at reception was too small even for a netbook. but the dorm was fine and it had good showers.

Mervi Johansson

15 September 2009 Mervi would recommend this property

Liked: The place used to be cleaner three years back otherwise, but the shared showers have been improved - they are clean and every shower has a small changing room that you can lock so don't have to worry about anyone taking your belongings. Staff (especially on the third floor bar/cafe) doesn't speak very good English which is at times a bit frustrating. The prices are high in the bar and especially annoying was the charge on the internet as the computers run quite slow most of the time. But the location is perfect for a stay in Beijing as you can take the subway just about everywhere in the city these days! And if you don't plan to spend time at the hostel, it's definitely worth it.

03 August 2009 Dale would recommend this property

Liked: Great location and easy access to the rest of Beijing via the subway and the rest of China via the train station across the street. Rooms were small but adequate. Restroom/bathroom facilities were clean. Hallways are long and in need of an upgrade, but overall a great place to stay for a reasonable price.

adam connolly

23 July 2009 adam would recommend this property

Liked: Large room, very close to beijing train station (opposite), internet in room, clean, good showers, nice bar area, it is more like a hotel than a hostel really as very large, beds very very hard though. Booked tour to Great wall through tour desk, good value for money, have to put up with obligatory shopping stops but still good value for money, can book train tickets at desk for same price as in station. Forbidden city etc is within walking distance. Can't go wrong, specially if you arriving into Beijing by train (main station not West)

Richard Lodge

21 July 2009 Richard would recommend this property

Liked: The place is basically a hotel with dorm facilities so is very new and modern with good a/c which you need in the summer. This is the perfect place if travelling by train as it is over the road from the central station. The hostel is also centrally located for alot of the sights of Beijing.

Disliked: Richard left no negative feedback.
