It's ok if you are searching for a really central hostel where you only want to spend the nights. The staff is friendly but with very low english skills. The restrooms are even for China in a bad condition. The Wi-Fi is only "working" in the lobby.
Staff didn't speak english at all and were not helpful when we asked for help (By the way, I think they won't understand this, you should translate it to chinese). The matress was the worst I have ever seen.
The wifi was limited to the lobby. The seats in the lobby were not enough for the guests. The room was okay but the shared bathroom can do more cleaning.
It located just right outside Beijing Railway Station, just across the main square. There is also a subway station (Beijing zhan) right outside the hostel. The staff doesn't speak much English. The room are clean but you paid for what you get. Linens and towels are provided.
I ended up staying three nights on three occasions, though convenience and the fact I left a large bag in storage had more to do with this than because it was especially good. The single rooms are reasonable, though I was staying in a basic one with a shared bathroom which was a bit of a hike in the middle of the night. The four bed dorms are good value and I even had the luxury one to myself on the last night I was there.
Staff very unfriendly. Rooms were very basic and hard. Good price, but worth it to throw in a few RMB more and get something nicer.
No wifi in rooms, there were problems using it in the lobby. Still, one of the better places to stay in Beijing.
Had a question beforehand and sent it 3 times over more than a week, but never got any response.
Couldn't be more handy in the centre of the city, two minutes from Beijing (main) Railway Station. Surrounded by shops and cheap restaurants, it's very convenient, even if the place itself is huge and impersonal. Rooms and corridors look a bit tired, bathrooms are a little cramped and can be quite a walk. Some rooms are without windows. There's only wifi in the not very comfortable entrance lobby. On the other handy, there's a very useful luggage room, free if you return to stay.
An awesome hostel if you want to stay near Bejing Railway Station and want easy access to the metro system.
