Customer review

Alone

Backpacking / gap year

02 July 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It's in the lakes, so it's quiet and authentic Beijing, but close to bars and local restaurants and transport to the sights. I walked to the Drum and Bell Towers by strolling along HouHai (lake). The girls at the desk work very hard and are always ready to help with directions, an onward booking, etc.

Liked: It was a really nice place to recover. Nice location, nice staff. The only thing that could be changed is the explenation of the direction to it. Add a distance to 'walking along the bank of the river' The rest was perfect! Thanks!

Gillian Murphy

07 October 2009 Gillian would recommend this property

Liked: Sleepy Inn is great if you want to come home to a quiet area after a day of navigating the crowds in the centre of Beijing. It is between two lakes, and situated amongst some hutongs and local shops and restaurants. If you don't speak chinese it can be difficult to find something to do in the immediate area but if you cross the road and walk along the bigger lake you soon come to more bars and restaurants with english menus or pictures of food to help! The subway is a ten minute walk away too, as are a pharmacy and larger supermarket, so it is quite convenient. I would definately stay again, for the peaceful atmosphere around the hostel!

Customer review

09 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Hostel was very clean.Postings in lobby should include more information regarding warnings to tourists about scams (for example: English-speaking girls who befriend tourists in Tiannamen Square, then scam them at tea ceremonies and/or dinners). Also, staff should tell guests about the other lake (across the street), which has more restaurants, shops, bars, etc. than the lake where Sleepy Inn is... We didn't see the other side until our last day. :(
