Liked: Excellent hostel, staff very helpful, wifi was quick! Bar had very nice food at reasonable prices and the location itself was only a 1-2 minute walk from the metro. The rooms were very clean- and well heated! :-) showers and toilets were also very clean, and the water hot. Would definitely recommend! I so felt safe there which was important as a youngfemale travelling alone. Also had a very good tour to the wall!

Disliked: Nothing!

Liked: The hostel decor is really nice, because it is located in one of the Beijing hutongs. Hostel staff is friendly and speaks pretty good English. Nice selection of drinks(in drinks menu I saw cocktails named "Oral Sex" and "G spot", heh) and food in the hostel bar. My dorm room was quite warm for this time of year.

Disliked: I didn't notice a common room here, but maybe I just wasn't looking hard enough. Anyway if you need a place to seat and use a computer you can use the bar.

Liked: First impression wasn't great as the cab driver couldn't find it despite having instructions printed off in Chinese but once he called the hostel he found it in a bit of a back alley. Staff were very helpful finding us a cab when we left and the restaurant bar was a good place to meet other backpackers. ThE rooms were freezing though!!

Liked: nothing

Disliked: Its very dirty - and after asking for changing the sheets the cleaner came took the hair from the bed and flattened the sheets. Toilet and shower are horror. Furthermore the staff is really unprofessional, unrespectful and does not keep their words. The place is in very bad shape and is disincentive... furthermore its cold

Disliked: Common area was very cold in winter as it is entirely covered by glass so the heating doesn't work too well.

Liked: close enough to get to the subway

Disliked: staff didn't seem to know what was going on at times and the fact that the bar is mixed up as a social room doesn't seem a good idea also if you stay in 1 of the shared bathroom dorms you have to walk across a courtyard to get to it not very nice when needing the toilet at night, wouldn't of minded if it was just down the hallway!

Liked: Nice bar. You can meet nice people there.

Disliked: I was staying in October and I must say that it was a bit too cold to stay in this hostel. I didnt like the common shower and toilets. They were ok, but not very cozy and comfortable. The bar is a bit expensive and you cannot take your own food, so you have to order something when u sit in the bar...
