Liked: Friendly staff, good area to have great choices of food. The best thing I liked was that there are many Muslim (Halal) food shops there. You can have a nice lunch/dinner and it is safe to eat food there too. I recommend it to Muslim travellers to live in this hostel if you don't want to eat any food that is not Halal. Awais

Disliked: Road where the hostel is a bit un-clean.

11 March 2015 olivier would recommend this property

Liked: The location was great (litterally 2 mins from the subway) and it was near to everything in the city (about 15 mins by subway from all attractions). The staff was friendly and even invited us to join their dumpling night for the lanthern festival. They were very helpful even though they spoke broken english. Overall, We were very satisfied and would definitely go back.

Disliked: It was hard to find the place on the first night because we didn't know that hutong meant alley. On our arrival, the room we reserved was taken (double bed) so they gave us another room instead (triple bed). We weren't happy but it was fixed the next day and we got the room that we wanted. The cleanliness of the bathroom could be improved.

Liked: At first it was a little tricky to find, but it's a great hostel and has everything you require. The wifi can play up if a lot of people are on and it's only usable near reception. The staff are more than helpful. They helped me with everything I needed and every question. They are very friendly, they have two common rooms and comfy beds!

Disliked: Wifi can play up if a lot of people are using it and it's only really good if you stand near the reception.

Liked: This hostel was excellent, the room was large and clean with a good bathroom. The staff were so helpful and explained about all the great tours on offer. The location was perfect in the old Hutong district and very close to the subway station. There was no kitchen but cheap (and very good) breakfast and snacks were available.

Liked: Friendly stuff. Near the centre. Early check in was no problem

Disliked: We had a room outside of the central building and it was a bit shabby most of all the bathroom. There was also no window in the room this gave ous a feeling like living in a cave. The biggest Problem was that everything was a bit wett including the bedding!! It is hard to find.
