I do not normally write reviews but I must do so this time as the staff are just so wonderfull and helpful. Fantastic with their pick up and drop off services and a very big thank you to Jerry, who so kindly did all the arrangement.Great locality. Great and interesting stay and do their Great Wall tour, worth every penny.

There are only 2 shower rooms with toilets together. Luckily I visit in non-peak season, so don't need to wait for a long time for shower or toilet. But sometimes it is inconvenient if you just want to go to toilet while someone is taking a shower.

The staff was very helpful and there English was good which made things easy. They helped us to book our train tickets to xi'an which was nice. The rooms were clean as well as the common areas (cleaned daily). The beds were a little uncomfortable but it didn't affect us. Great location, you can get everywhere you need by subway which is just down the road. Laundry was expensive because they do it for you. Overall a great experience and would defiantly go back.

A nice and quiet hostel. The alley where it is located offers a wide variety of food choices. There are also trinket shops where you can buy little gifts to take back home. Staff are really helpful. They speak good English. The room was okay. Nothing special but was okay. I recommend the 6KM hike. We had the wall to ourselves when we went there with the hostel group. Only negatives were they served the same breakfast everyday. We also ran out of hot water! It was torture esp during the winter.

Perfect location and a very good locker system. In addition they organise amazing hiking tours to the great wall, very recommendable. Staff is there 24/7, some of them are very helpful, others a bit less...

Great location about 300m from the metro stop. On a very vibrant street -- quiet in the mornings, but at night there are plenty of shops, street food vendors and small bars to keep you entertained. Lots to do with hostel hosted activities and the breakfast (included) next store is great. Beds were very comfortable and the ensuite shower/bath was clean and functional.

Really nice hostel, great location and helpful staff. Breakfast was great also, def recommend!! The hostel wasn't very social but we were there in late November so potentially quiet season. Would stay again if I'm back in Beijing.
