An excellent hostel if you want easy access to the metro and to be within a 5-minute walking distance to Beijing Railway Station.


The hostel's location is the best, if you want to be close to Beijing Railway station and to subway Line 2. The amenities provided such as towels, toothpaste, etc., are greatly appreciated. The hostel is easy to find and although the staff don't speak much English, they are very efficient.


A very convenient hostel that is right by Beijing Railway station. If you are getting in the city later in the night, this hostel is located across the square. You just have to cross the sky bridge. The walk from the exit of the train station to the front entrance of the hostel is around 5 minutes. Also the subway station is right outside the hostel, maybe about a 15 second walk. A super convenience location!


Easy, quick service. Not overwhelmingly positive but also there were no problems either.

you get what you pay for. excellent location, staff barely speaks English. would come again


The location of this hostel couldn't be more convenient! Right next to the train station, a subway station just yards from the front door, and a little market selling everything you need (water, snacks, laundry detergent) next door. The 'travel agency' located in the hostel next to the elevators was convenient too. I signed up for the great Wall tour - with no shopping - the day I arrived at the hostel. I was on the 3rd floor close to the elevators so I had no problem getting wifi.


I only stay here when I'm coming in late to the train station which is directly across the street. The AC doesn't work at all except in the lobby and the room is hot with no air circulation. It's also extremely loud from street noise. The bathroom is relatively clean, but has a glass wall which is awkward. The WIFI doesn't work in the room, but there is a landline that does. Other than location, the only thing I like about this place is the generous luggage storage available after checkout.

The hostel was dirty and my room had a sour ashtray smell to it. The a.c didn't work very well at keeping the room cool, but was very good and dripping water all over the floor. Staff isnt friendly or helpful, wifi is very poor and only offered in the lobby, which is crowded and uncomfortable The location is close to the subway and there are usually taxies in wait right on the corner, but those are the only 2 good things about this hostel; and its not enough to make this a nice place to stay
