Below are some comments from our guests:
*** I want to thank the Beijing Far East International Youth Hostel for perfect lodging during my 6-day stay in Beijing! The hostel, its staff and the day trips and activities it organized were great, and the location and atmosphere second to none! Once again thanks a lot
*** This is a great 'hostel', more of a hotel really. Rooms are cleaned every day and it has every service you could need - Internet, laundry and a tour office which can organize your trips to the Great Wall etc. The location is perfect - in the middle of the old part of Beijing. We spent the first few nights here in another part of town and this area is much safer and more fun, I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Beijing for the first time.
***The entire staff at Far East is so incredibly helpful! Having a tourist office inside the hostel was definitely useful, and they're really good at explaining how to get around the city. It's within walking distance to both Tianamen Sq. and the Forbidden City, and the shops along the alleyways are so much cheaper than the silk market! We found that out a little too late. The restaurant on the first floor is really good, and the cafe at the bottom floor is also really convenient. Make sure you stay in the main hostel, not in the court yard!
*** Fantastic travel desk and massage facilities - staff very friendly. Great free Internet service and good breakfast buffet - constantly restocked. Great!
***The great food and excellent Internet facilities provided by the hotel make life very comfortable and with only a 10 minute walk to the nearest underground station, or a 20 min walk through some very interesting streets leading to Tiananmen Square, the location is quite central. I've stayed in this Hotel 3 times now and will definitely stay there again.
***Absolutely fantastic! Extremely nice people, very helpful, good tours and EXCELLENT massages! Loved it and would definitely stay there again. Just one thing: it would be nice with a few strictly female/male rooms. But apart from that it was all more than good!
*** Better location - it's impossible! Nothing better than being in this fantastic Hutong. In front of the hostel, there's a fantastic bar-cafe, where you can eat for a reasonable price. I would return!
*** It's very clean (we had an en-suite) and the food offered at both the restaurant and cafe were excellent in taste and value for money. Free Internet was great. Within walking distance to Forbidden City.
