Brian DeRoo

18 October 2008 Brian would recommend this property

Liked: The Sleepy Inn is set in a beautiful hutong on the lake. the staff were friendly and the room was spotless. the location maybe slightly out of the way but once you get to know where things are, you are set. the tube station is only a 6 minute walk away. this was our favorite hostel in China! if you are looking for a hopping bar this is not the place but you are close to all the nightlife of the north lakes area!

Liked: Lovely staff, very helpful and friendly. Fantastic location close to hutongs, pretty lakes, nice bars, restaurants and cafes. 10 minute walk (beside lake) to subway stop. Central area but with lots of character. Clean, quiet and safe. Hot showers with the power to blow your hair off - if you've just come off the train you'll think you've gone to heaven!

12 August 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The prices they charged for a 6 person dorm were ridiculous, the hostel was practicly empty, but apart from their rates it was a fantastic hostel. I guess the Olympics wasn't the best time to visit Beijing.Extremely friendly staff which was willing to help you with everything. Great atmosphere ! Good place to meet people !

Jyrki Kallio

07 December 2007 Jyrki would recommend this property

Liked: Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean room and a clean bathroom with a well-working shower. Adequate heating in the room. Good, basic breakfast available at a reasonable price. Excellent location near some hutong-areas, the parks around the Houhai-Xihai Lakes, and the Bell and Drum Towers. Easily accessible with the Metro. Peaceful and quiet place, even with the ongoing street work on the nearby Deshengmen Nei Dajie; the completion of the street work (in the next coming months) will mean a significant upgrade to the surroundings. Nice and intresting clientile with a chance to meet with some locals unobtrusively, as well. Could imagine that the terrace and courtyard make the place even nicer during the warm season.
