The staff were extremely helpful and came to meet me in the street when I arrived after midnight due to a delayed flight.

Location is questionable. Didn't feel safe in that alley.

I was there for a weekend and mainly for meeting friends. So wasnt able to stay long but it was perfect for my needs. Very clean rooms and linen and a well maintained property withe very helpful staff speaking good English Excellent location as it is close to Xisi subway station. Has a convenience store and a mega mart right next door so very helpful. WiFi speed was also quite good without any network issues. and a wall plug near every bed for your charging needs. Absolute value for money!

Extremely helpful staff, willing to go the extra mile for you. The hostel was very clean and only a 5 minute walk from the subway. Another plus was that it was close to a lot of delicious small restaurants serving different types of Chinese food, like malaxiangguo and shaokao. The only downside was that the wifi was slow/almost non-existent in the rooms. We told the staff and they tried to fix it.

We had deluxe private and it was really like a hotel room, very clean, big beds, very cosy and quiet. The only minus is location - even though it's near the palace area, there are no bars and shops near, just kind of working class district.

Actually, there are nice cafes nearby, just 5min walking, and about 20min by subway to the Houhai bar street. Or if anybody want to go there, we can show the route to go. Thank you for your review.

The rooms where verry clean modern and nice. The staff extremly friendly. Everything just fine and it has a selfservice kitchen. The onlything that is missing is space for a lounge area or sitting area. The is no communal room to sit and meet. The rest is just verry fine and good value for money.

Great Place if you want to chill and not have the noise of a in-house bar or restaurant. Suited me to have quiet nights and a handy location to parks, malls and the subway. What makes this place a very comfortable alternative is the staff. They were so helpful in fielding questions, even opening the door when I arrived late. It's the little things that matter and this place had it all. Cleanliness, location and friendly English speaking staff. Thank-you Alborada! Bravo!!!!

A great hostel, close to a metro station and would go back there any day and stay. Very helpful staff who will help you find where to go and where to eat.

Stayed in a few hostels in Beijing, this one was one of the better and cleaner ones. One of the dorms is cramped, the other is spacious, but both are clean and well-kept. About a 5min walk to the Subway and close to the center of the city (on the west side). Excellent staff and HOT water at all times of the day.

Fantastic hostel: thoroughly insulated from the freezing Beijing winter, but also warmed by the homely comforts (plush bedding, TV, towels) in the rooms, the very friendly, generous staff and the sense of separation from the hustle & bustle of the city at the other end of the L-shaped Hutong. Thanks Sammy & co. for a fantastic stay in Beijing- I'll be back one day for sure!
