You cant say anything wrong. Well its a hotel, you dont find the backpacker athmosphere. If you can live with that its very good.


Our room had the following: - rusty shower water (brown) - clogged shower-head - multiple towels with red/brown stains - ripped towels - cups put back in place but not washed (still had water inside) - no Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi available in a small room in B1 where there was no cell reception) Room was not ready when we arrived around 1:00 pm and still had previous occupants' garbage. Check-in desk staff was rude on two occasions. Location was nice but I'd try another place next time.

HANDY, EFFICIENT, KNOWLEDGEABLE staff, both speaking English and allowing you to practice your poor Mandarin on them. Relatively FAST wi-fi. Situated amid TYPICAL low residential quarter of Beijing and thus allows you to observe the locals' customs. CLEAN, gender divided bathrooms. FREE access to a fully equipped kitchenette. FREE hot water. All dorms seemed to be situated on -1 level which may feel strange to some. There's only a SMALL, BASIC common area, however with comfy sofa and armchairs.


Located in Hutong, which has good and bad points, and also near the sightseeing places such as Qianmen, Tianmen Square and National Museum (walkable). No internet in the room. Clean and spacious room (6 dorm rooms). In general, satisfactory!


Very clean, nice showers/bathrooms. Only complaint was that first room smelled of mold, but at my request the desk clerks were happy to move me to another one.

This is a nice hostel, I do hope that they will run the BAR again. Which is a place for us to relax, to talk in a nice atmosphere, and to play pool together.


excellent in all respects
