Liked: Great interior and exterior decoration, nice bar, heating provided, quiet. The place has good potential to be highly attractive.

Disliked: No guest notice on late evening hot water shortage on first night, I had to negotiate for 15 mins to get a discount for the night. Staff are not particularly welcoming - they just do what the are told by some distant boss. Laundry service (along with tours) are expensive and even requesting to use coat hangers outside for hand washed clothes seemed a big deal. No safe storage, internet is slow and inconsistent.

Liked: The rooms were a good size, clean with a large bathroom. The quality of the bathroom was great and the shower was decent for the price. I am 6ft 3 (2 metres) in height, yet the beds were a good size and comfortable for tall travellers like myself.

Disliked: The smell coming from the shower drain in the bathroom was quite eggy and unpleasant, and we had to keep the door shut a lot to stop the smell filling the room.As expected, the rooms can get quite cold in the winter, but just wear some thermals to bed, which to be honest you should be doing anyway in the winter months, we stayed during Feb 2014.The TV reception was pretty poor, I wasn't expecting a TV at all, so they might as well have not had one.The beds were quite hard, but this is a common thing in China, so you can't really escape that.

Liked: I didn't like anything about this property

Disliked: The property and staff were below expectation. The common area was the only place to interact with other travelers and it closed at 11:30pm and the food/drinks were extremely overpriced. The bathroom was horrible because it was cold and there is no such thing as warm water in the shower. The water was either ice cold or scolding hot. Look into other hostels if you are staying in Beijing.

Liked: Classic courtyard tucked inside a typical "hutong".Very friendly staff, and (for non Chinese speakers) fairly good English spoken.Location not too inconvenient to reach tourist spots by public transports.

Disliked: The lovely, historical courtyard is spoiled by a giant wood-and-glass pub. Luckily it is quite soundproof.Our bathroom (and hence our room) had a pungent smell of sewer, and of feet down near the television.The shower had either scorching-hot water or ice-cold. Only experienced jugglers can shower here.

Liked: located exactly at center for attractions in Beijing. easily get to wherever by subway or bus. such a cool and helpful staffs, esp Joanna! nice hot water shower and personal light per bad, locks, cozy bar with kind bartender.

Disliked: a water pipe of a washstand in my 6 dorm was broken at the moment. It was inconvenient as water keeps leaking but not a big deal for a few days staying.

Liked: The hostel is in a good location and is a nicely decorated traditional courtyard hostel.

Disliked: The rooms can be a little cold in winter as they are situated around the courtyard. The internet signal is weak in the rooms so you have to go into the courtyard, reception or café to use it.

Liked: Good value for money. Great area to be in. Nicely decorated, traditional courtyard hostel.

Disliked: The rooms and showers are a little cold in winter, but this is due to the traditional layout of the building which opens up on to the courtyard. The internet has limited signal in the rooms, but is available in the courtyard, which is dominated by the café in the centre, so you will need to by a drink to use it.
