The property is a classic hudong - family residence compound. It has been fixed up so as to provide hostel-style (primitive) bedrooms, some with very basic showers. it's not for the mainstream tourist. But it is interesting from a historical perspective.

Great feel to the hostel, very relaxed atmosphere and nice settings. The neighbourhood is lovely to explore and the locals friendly, a quiet hostel with good beds and nice and cool in the mid summer heat. Staff were good at giving advice and always on hand. Breakfast dumplings were good also.

Location was excellent, if a little difficult to find at first. The reception staff were excellent, helping with all trips, recommendations and services. Very comfortable room; quiet, good size and very clean. Lovely, relaxing courtyard to sit and enjoy a beer and a book. Would stay again!

For anyone wondering whether or not to stay at this place.. JUST DO IT! Ive stayed here three times now and each time has been a very good experience. Since my last stay (February 2014) there have been some pleasant improvements to this place. Sadly in many hostels in China, the owners will try and milk as much profit as possible before putting the money back in, not in this place. Every time I go there are improvements, like the owners actually care more about customer satisfaction then the money they get in return (a rare thing in China). Things to note: 1. Very friendly staff, all speak good English. 2. Has a nice bar / restaurant (recently expanded - improvement no. 1) albeit a little expensive (but still worth it). 3. Easy trips to visit the wall (Suggest Mutianwu if you are not Chinese). 4. Wide variety of rooms. 5. Beds in dorms ALL have curtains giving extra privacy (Improvement no.2) 6. Quiet time well enforced. 7. Lots of informative signs about scams and tourist sites, helps keep you in the know.

Great hostel.I really liked the curtains around the bed, and each bed got an individual outlet. Bar was good, always had specials and the staff was nice. Also, great location. Llama temple is about 20 minutes away, and tianmen and forbidden city are walkable. Also on the walls they have lots of info about the big attractions so you can just take a picture or write it down if the staff is busy. The staff is really nice and helpful, especially Candice and the people who work at the bar.

It is situated in a nice Hutong in the city center and though it is obviously prepared for tourists, its covered courtyard is nicely decored and inhabited by some carps. It is not cheap (given that there is no breakfast included) compared to Chinese prices, but not expensive either: Worth the price and nice for staying in central Beijing.

Lots of character in the bedrooms and in the common areas. The hostel is spotlessly clean and the staff are very helpful. The location is also great - very near the subway and the nightlife.

If you travel in a group so you can book the whole room, or if you just stay one night, I think you will be ok.

The hostel is the perfect location to experience the traditional Chinese way of living. It is located in a Hutong, so that you get an insight into a traditional neighborhood, with its local shops and markets. Additionally, the Hostel has very friendly staff, which provides helpful tips and personal insights. They try to fulfill you every wish/request. Communication was quite easy as the staff either speaks fluent English or German. The hostel is furnished in a practical way and decorated with loving attention to detail. It is cleaned every day and they even tidy up your bedroom. A typical Chinese-style breakfast can be ordered to experience the local taste. For us as a student group, it was the perfect location as the Financial street is very close and the two metro stations within walking distance (~15 min --> quite close for Beijing Mega-City). Moreover, we had the whole hostel for our own. The roof terrace is a perfect spot to relax after a busy day. All in all, staying in this hostel was a great way to learn about the Chinese culture and its people. We were told several times during our stay that Beijing (Business + shopping district), Shanghai and Hong Kong is not China. But living in this hostel is where you can experience the REAL China!

This may be the best hostel (more like a lodge or guest house) I have ever been. I like the family feeling and pure Chinese atmosphere. The best of all, I got a good deal for free upgrading, thanks for those nice and honest staff

This place has so much beauty and character. I didn't have much time to relax on this particular trip, but I could easily imagine spending hours outside in the courtyard on a fall afternoon, drinking tea under the guihua tree. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating of my rushed schedule (I had to leave very early in the morning to catch a train).
