The Staff was unfriendly and did not speak english. A very Nice hostel, but too expensive compared to others.
It s bad practice to renovate a room while you have guests staying in it. Cleanliness not great. Unfriendly staff. But can't beat the location
Firstly, I would recommend not staying in china at all! This place is close to forbidden city and tienanmen square... That's all it has going for it. It was clean-ish...The staff were rude, did not speak English for the most part, and definitely did not want to you help you with most things. Glad we didn't get the breakfast included option- looked gross, But so was the rest of the food elsewhere. I would expect more for the price. Ps- research local scams- they are everywhere!!

The staff were friendly and helpful, especially on the morning we left. . The Taxi drivers never knew where it was. Maybe have a better map showing the location. Also an explanation of Buses and routes available, will be helpful. Drinking water in the room is a necessity. More like a hotel, than a hostel.

Staff weren't the friendliest but overall a solid budget hotel. (Not really a youth hostel)
This isnt really a hostel, but a low level hotel situated in an ugly rectangular building. We were highly disappointed and moved after just one night. The room was not clean and dark, with bad smell, broken mirror, toilet overflowed after one use, staff very unfriendly, WiFi working only in loby. The location may look OK on the map, but actually its half an hour walk from the subway, and the only thing within walking distance in the forbidden city and night market, but neighborh unpleasant
Could be a great place, if it wasn't for the staff. Might be unwillingness or lack of English spoken, but it makes you feel like back in bad old state collective days. Take your money elsewhere if you want it appreciated.
Very disapointed by the staff I recommended this Hostel , but not anymore Yes it is clean , simple but not enough , some rooms smell realy bad Staff is not at all cooperative , pretending not to speak english , they refused to call a taxi because changing hostel , to join a friend , and I had paid the room of course Really bad experience
WE STAYED AT THE JADE FOR THREE NIGHTS... EVERYTHING ABOUT IT WAS BETTER THAN I HAD EXPECTED. ,,,,,,THE PRICE/VALUE ,THE CLEANLINESS, THE FACILITIES THE PROXIMITY TO TIANAMAN SQUARE AND THE FORBIDDEN CITY, THE SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD. THE RECEPTION STAFF WERE VERY PLEASANT AND COULD SPEAK ENGLISH. THEY WERE ALSO VERY HELPFUL IN BOOKING BULLET TRAIN TICKETS FOR US AS WELL AS GETTING A TAXICAB FOR US. THE ROOM WAS SMALL CLEAN, NOTHING SPECIAL ...THE AIR-CONDITIONER WORK EXCELLENT.. ILL STAY AGAIN
In a good location but staff could be rude and there is little possibility of meeting other travelers. If you don't want to sit inyour room there is only the lobby.
