Liked: I had to change my reservation around and they did it without any trouble.When I came in, they gave me a toothbrush, comb, shampoo, soap (liquid and bar) and they replace it everyday (which I didn't know about). I was pleasantly surprised, it is quite do-able and affordable. I switched from a private to dorm room and the people were really nice and friendly, visitors and staff alike.

Liked: I stayed at the hostel for 5 nights with my mother and overall we were satisfied with our experience but that was mostly due to the amazing location and the helpful staff at the front desk. The hostel lacked a "hostel feeling" as we only saw other Chinese people staying there and the restaurant and bar area was closed, which we were counting on for breakfast. Luckily one of the guys who worked there told us about their sister hostel close by so we could go there. The rooms were big enough and had plenty of storage space and everything was new, maintained, and clean. The Great Wall tour and acrobatics tour booked through the hostel were great. My only comment on the Great Wall tour is that the included English guide really isn't a guide but an escort to bring you to the wall and tell you where to meet after. This was fine with us as we wanted to experience the wall at our own pace. The convenient location, directly next to the metro (which is fabulous) and the front desk people made the stay for us:)

Disliked: My biggest problems with this hostel were the fact that I only had 1 hot shower during my 5 night stay there. On the second night the hot water was broken and on the following night we had lukewarm water or hot water for 5 minutes and then no more. Second was that the shower floods the entire bathroom making it all wet and slippery. Warning, the beds are hard as a brick, maybe made with the same material as the Great Wall and the walls paper thin so we got to hear our neighbor have a loud Chinese conversation till 4am one night.

Liked: Good location, right next to the subway stop. Nice rooms.

Disliked: It says they do breakfast and the hostel has a menu up but we were told they don't do it anymore. It's a bit annoying if you advertise it but don't do it. Also, I'm not sure what the difference is between the deluxe rooms and the normal rooms apart from the price.

Liked: Staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were very nicely decorated and very clean,well maintained. Located conveniently literally next door to the subway station.

Disliked: Nothing really, at first I thought the bar area couldve been bigger and there shouldve been more computers but there was never a need for any more so there is enough! I was pleased.

Liked: Rooms were clean and quite big. Hostel is just beside the subway station.

Disliked: Although there's a subway station just beside it there's nothing much around. You need to go somewhere else to eat or do whatever.
