Liked: Quite

Disliked: For the same value i can get even a better courtyard hostel such as decorations wise, more classic and more ancient feels.... At the same area Dongxi... The price is kind of expensive and not worth of that kind of pricing.

Liked: The staff was really nice and helpful and their English was really good - I can compare to other hostels and Hotels in China and they were surely among the best. Also, the place is very neat and clean. The female bedroom (6 beds) is really nice. Drinks, breakfast, maps, tours can be purchased at/through the Hotel.The Location is great - Walking distance to most inner City sights (although might take 30-60 minutes by feet). There are lots of nice, very local and affordable places to eat around. Around ten minutes to the next Metro Station and half an hour Walking distance to the rail Station.The courtyard is great for community - everyone's out there and since you share tables you get into conversations easily.

Disliked: Unfortunately our shower head in the private bathroom fell off, but there is still the common shower that is huge (admittedly, you have to go through the courtyard to get to the common shower). Also, the bathroom has been worn off on the edges, but still clean in comparison to other places.

Liked: Let's get the technical stuff out of the way first - western toilet (you'll be glad of these once you've encountered the 'squatty potty'), spacious room (myself and my boyfriend were in a twin room), amazingly comfortable beds, air conditioning, quiet atmosphere at night. The hostel is located in the Dencao Hutong which is centrally located to restaurants, shops and the Dongsi subway line, which in turn is centrally located to a lot of the main attractions (Beijing is massive so it still takes awhile to get around). As for the personal experience, we loved it. Daniel and the staff were so nice and helpful. Any questions we had were answered. Just in case you wanted a taste of home, breakfast was a western styled fry and was a great way to start the day. We had kung fu lessons at the weekend in the courtyard so for a martial arts nut (make that two), it was an amazing way to finish our stay in China. We went home happy! The hostel had a wide range of customers, from families with babies to older couples, singles and the younger travelling couple like ourselves. I would certainly recommend it and definitely stay there again.

Liked: Easy to get talking to other guests. Cleaner than most hostels in china.

Disliked: The staff were very friendly but there seemed to be more staff members than guests, and sometimes there would be nowhere to sit in the common area by reception because of all the staff playing on their laptops. Also, one staff member tried to claim that an ipad left by a guest belonged to her - when he returned for it, she said "oh we were just wondering whose that was." Hopefully this was just an isolated occurrence! The drain in the dorm bathroom was very slow so showering would fill the bathroom with water for a long time. The computer doesn`t have a soundcard so you can`t use skype. The tour to the wall was overpriced at the hostel - other guests on the same tour who had booked via other hostels had paid 100 RMB less for the same thing!
