Liked: I could not recommend this place more. Great atmosphere, great guests from all over the world and great value for money. The staff are exceptional, particularly in the bar and reception. Wanted to say a big thanks to Apple and Amy in the bar as they always people very welcome and provide excellent service. I'm living in Beijing now and still go back about once a week to catch up, have a few drinks and meet other westerners.

Disliked: Only non smoking bar in Beijing but that's probably a good thing.

Liked: The dorms are very clean, with large comfortable beds and towels provided. There is a very nice (if slightly overpriced bar) at the back of the hostel, and they sell cold water at reception.

Disliked: It is rather difficult to find, being on a small unsuspecting back street in what is a lready quite a hard city to navigate. The bathroom was not really adequate for the number of people (although fairly nice) and the tours they operate out of the hostel seemed to be difficult to arrange and pretty expensive (we didn't go on one in the end.

We changed our dates of stay twice and they were highly accommodating. The great walk tour to Mutanyiu was brilliant.we got cooked breakfast at tge hostel An air conditioned bus with an English speaking tour guide, plenty of time to explore the wall and an excellent lunch at the wall in a restaurant. This was 280 yuan with the entrance fee included. Great value for money. You should stay here!

Disliked: Nothing at all!

Liked: The food wasn't cheap but it was very nice and great quality. The dorms are small but have all you need (lockers and reading light) The staff were VERY friendly and helpful, couldn't fault them!

Disliked: There are very few restaurants around the area. The staff didn't seem to know too much about the area which didn't help in finding something. Some of my laundry was lost but they replaced it without delay. Not much atmosphere in the bar

Liked: A nice, simple hostel that was quite tidy and clean based in a well situated area of town. The staff were very helpful and cheerful. I chose to go on one of the advertised tours and enjoyed myself immensely.

Disliked: The hostel could really benefit from a social area that isn't the bar/cafe - it was difficult to meet other people or have a nice place to relax. The air conditioning was somewhat useless in my room, but this wasn't a major problem.

Liked: We only stayed one night at Dragon King Hostel passing through, but if I ever come back to Beijing I will definitely come back here. The staff was extremely nice and helpful and spoke English very well. The hostel itself was really clean and in a good location- just a short walk to the metro station.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The staff was always helpful. They also provide good tours to the great wall. The rooms were very clean and the food in the restaurant was very good (except for the ceasars salad, which included only salad and tomatoes).

Disliked: Although the hostel is located in a quiet hutong-style street, with a subway nearby, the connection to visit the most important touristic attractions was not that good. Also there were quite alot of problems with the internet when we stayed at dragon king hostel.
