Ian Wright thinks…

"A couple of days after my stay I found myself 'stranded' in Beijing for 12 hours between trains. Went to Dragon King and asked if they had a room. They didn't as they were fully booked. However, they…"

01 November 2009 Jorge would recommend this property

Liked: friendly and helpful staff. I already stayed in other hostels (not only but also in shanghai) and didn't think it was so fun and "active" like the others, but the rooms were cool! I stayed in a double room. Large bed, clean toilet. I would recommend it to my friends

Megan Smith

29 October 2009

Liked: The hostel was filthy. Dirty throughout -- the room, the lobby, the public restroom on the rooftop bar. My room was not cleaned once in five days. NOT ONCE. It was evident it hadn't been cleaned in weeks. The floors were filthy, the linens slept in by who knows how many people, the bathroom horrendous. The maid emptied the trash and that was it; and if something had fallen out of or next to the trash, that was ignored. Unbelievable. Granted, this is the first hostel I've stayed in in China, but I think things like supplying toilet paper and cleaning the bathroom and providing fresh sheets are required. Also, there is a restaurant attached to the hostel, which makes the entire place (even up on the fourth floor) reek of grease and food, and not in a good way. Not recommended for those of you who value cleanliness.

Customer review

10 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location is superb. We had wanted something closer to the Bund, but actually this is a better spot: right by People's Square in the centre of town, so easy to access all tourist sights. The staff were VERY helpful, particularly as I lost my bankcard at the airport and they let me stay the first few nights on trust until I sorted it out. The street is full of good restaurants, and had a beautiful light display. We stayed in a private room and it was more like a hotel. All in all, couldn't have asked for anything more.

Liked: I really enjoy my stay there. The hostel is very nice and clean. Not to say that the staff is always very friendly and keen on helping you. They even have chinese classes and other options if you are interested in. The twin room was very quietm there was air conditioning which came in great help considering the weather outside. I highly recommend it, very good for the little price you're paying.

Liked: This hostel is very nice -- especially the staffs. They were all very helpful and friendly, even offer very discounted one-day zhouzhuang tour package (on wed only, and you may want to call them in advance to see if the pacakge is still available). There are total of 3 computers for usage, which I think is more than enough. The overall environment is very clean, and the bathroom is clean too. It has elevator -- which is a plus for me since I had a "wheeled" carry-on luggage. I would totally stay there again - bargain for the money!
