Liked: the courtyard and the central location

Disliked: NO LICENSE FOR FOREIGNER (yet), so booking on the web is useless, they don't even handle/read the booking emails if you book from this website. So the double room I booked was not available, I had to wait a very long time before finally being put in a 4-dorm, next day I had to change to a 6-dorm. And it got even worse, the day after that even had to change to another (Leo) hostel, much further away and old, worn out rooms. (as far as Lonely Planet 'publicity' goes, I think it must have been ages ago they last checked the Leo hostel out). What should have been a relax 4-day stay in a double room became a 4 times change dorm to dorm !!! Except 1 staff most were rude and unhelpful, limited English. No closets in dorm. No door key, each time you want to go in your room you need to call someone from reception to open the door. Bed sheets not always changed as they should be (after guest leaves). Wet walls, humid inside, stuff gets smelly. Construction going on nearby (dust/dirty). In short, DON'T BOTHER DO BOOK THIS...

16 April 2013 Jonathan would recommend this property

Liked: Anna (the owner) was incredibly accommodating and friendly. I can honestly say that this is far and away the best hostel I've stayed at in China. The rooms are comfortable, the location is perfect, and the atmosphere was great. We were a bit leery about doing the tours through a hostel, but they turned out to be way better than expected. We did the acrobat show the first night and the Great Wall tour the next day. The show was incredible, and the Great Wall tour was as advertised; it was far from any crowds. Would highly recommend this to anyone travelling to Beijing!

Disliked: Jonathan left no negative feedback.
