Our stay was fun. The trip offered by the Hostel are really good. Only bad hing the airconditioning didn't worked so well, the 10 beds room was kind of a sauna

Enjoyed the courtyard atmosphere on May 19, also for nights of May 6, 7, 8, 9. Convenient for transportation. Taxi pick up at the airport and return excellent. Two things that are negative are: First, at 12 or 1 a.m during our stay on May 9, the noise in lobby and in a room very loud..Another guest also complained. .We told the manager and he said there was nothing they could do about it. On May 19, the noise at 2-3 a.m. slamming doors next to us, a woman and men spoke loudly couldn't sleep

The location is perfect, close by feet to the forbidden city and to animated hutongs, and 20min from the subway. Except the first lady we met who tried to make us stay in a 6-bed dorm (we had booked a 4-beds dorm), all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Careful, the ladies toilets are only separated by small walls and NO doors, it is something to keep in mind if you want to stay there. To sum up, it's an average hostel, with very good value for price in Beijing. I would recommend it.

The location was good. It was near the heart of old Beijing. It's about a 2-minute walk from where the awesome shops are but still really convenient. The staff was exceptional and spoke really good English--especially that petite girl whose name escapes me right now. I love how there are cats casually walking around and are treated by the staff as family. Internet is not very fast in the hours of peak usage (i.e. late afternoon and early evening) but still good. Overall great experience!

Nice room, took us a while to find, however, great location in a hutong with not expensive restaurants and souvenir shops. Close to Qian Men station and Forbidden City / Tiananmen. Free drink voucher and bar with a good atmosphere.

We had a hard time getting to the hostel since the Qianmen stop was closed so we had to get off one stop after that one and we got lost. We used google maps to try to get there but the location there is WRONG and we ended up in a very scary alley (it was past 10pm). Don't trust google maps in China! After we managed to get there everything was ok, it has a nice bar, very near to the forbidden city and the metro. It is not a super nice hostel but it is ok to spend a couple of days.

The dorm rooms are a bit crowded, but they have an ensuite bathroom and safes. Kind of hard to find originally and not very close to a subway station, but walking distance to Tiananmen Square. Bar area is fun and relaxed. Nothing exceptionally good or bad about the Leo

Mold in the the corner of room 223 one of the eight person mixed dorms. Even a little effort to clean the cafe/bar area would make it much better. During my visit kebab sticks were on the cafe/bar floor in the late afternoon.

Great hostel, had a really pleasant stay there. After reading some bad reviews here I was a little afraid I'd pick the wrong place to stay for more than a week in Beijing. They all turned out to be unrealistic to me. Maybe the not so good cleaniness is the only valid criti (plus the fact that beer in their bar is a little expensive). Otherwise, great, cheap, well located place (about 20 min walk from subway, in the core of a Hutong, so you get to experience the real local community)

Toilets in the dorm rooms very grotty. Bathrooms in dorm rooms not well ventilated. No soap or toilet paper provided for dorm rooms. I will not stay here again, although the rooms are a good price for cheap student travelers.

Nice place to stay in a vibrant area of Beijing . We stayed in a twin rom for 5 night. Room was ok, bed comfortable, window in the room and no smoking place ( 3 characteristic difficult to find in Chinese hostel..) =). Only the private bathroom was dirty . Staff was helpful ! I would recommend this place !

The hostel was nice and cosy, but the street indications were very bad. It wasn't so easy to get there. But the staff was nice enough to come and pick us up since we got lost. Thus, please review your indications to get to the hostel, because all in all the experience there was nice.

Excellent stay. We were a group of 18 and the staff were lovely to all of us. They were very accommodating and the quality of service was exemplary. The location is in the heart of Beijing, only a 10 minute walk from Tiananmen Square and tonnes of bustling Beijing life. Highly recommended.

The hostel is a little bit hidden in a very small road, it would be nice to get more detailed instructions on how to get there. The Atmosphere was a bit silent, you don't meet a lot of people.. the bar is quite empty most of the times

Terrific atmosphere, especially the old courtyard. Great place to read a book or do email. Very nice and helpful staff. I've stayed there for years--- try to get one of the rooms on the courtyard.
