The staff is helpful and so kind.But it's not easy to find some food nearby.Wifi is not good at second day.I think it's good to have a holiday here,not travel.


More than what I can imagine about a hostel in beijing at that price! Room and toilettes are super clean and nice. The place is really lovely with many nice decoration that I will never forget. But the best is their staff, the two at the reception are so so kind, the guy tried to give us detail information using Google translate and the girl is really good at English. We did enjoy very good time, meet nice roomates, enjoy tea ... Best hostel ever! I definetely recommend and come back.

This was the perfect hostel for me, once I'd found it! It was cleaner and nicer than my 4* hotel in Harbin. The staff are really lovely, helpful and friendly. And, even though it was quiet due to it being low season, I still met other travellers. Exactly what I was looking for. I would definitely recommend this hostel and I would book it again if I visit Beijing again - which I need to as Lee has promised to paint my face Beijing Opera style!


I really enjoyed the Chinesebox. Bed, linen and shower were better than many hotels. Top quality. The staff Joy and Lee were lovely and ever so helpful. Location might be strange at first but in fact is safe and close to subway and local restaurants. Safety is good. The only downside is not having access to a kitchen to do our own cooking, but in China eating out is part of the visit. So have some tea and enjoy this hostel.


My friend recommended this hostel in Beijing. I can say everything is perfect if you have tight budget. All staff are very nice - when I go back to Beijing I will definitely stay here again.
