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.

Liked: The staff was really friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was great too. When we stayed there we met a lot of people, like business man, students, families, travellers... And we stayed hours chatting and drinking beer in the common areas. The location was good, there's a subway station 5 minutes walking.

Disliked: The only negative thing was the bathroom cleanleness, but it's not so bad.

Liked: LFH is set back in a lovely, quiet hutong and yet is but five minutes from the metro. It's also about a ten-minute walk from the Confucius and Lama Temples. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean, pleasant, and quiet. I loved that all I could hear in my room on the third floor was the wind in the trees.

Disliked: This isn't even a big complaint since it turned out not to be a problem, but if you have a private room with a shared bathroom, there is only one shower, and it's on the second floor. I was told there are bathrooms on the second floor, as well, but I never found them and had to use the one on the first floor instead, which is great for some extra exercise!
