Very nice and helpful staff, I appreciated the books/guides & maps, and, above all, the (free) noodles for breakfast! Would definitely stay there again.
We loved staying here. The place has a lovely atmosphere and the staff were super patient and amazing at helping us organise a trip to the wall, taxi transfers, and also gluten free meals for me in their restaurant which is tricky in Beijing. The wifi wasn't amazing but that's a small thing for a brilliant place. Location is half hour walk from the forbidden city and 10 mins from xisi tube (metro is very easy to use and necessary as Beijing is massively much bigger than we were expecting).
Very hard to find at first all up good
I'm a bit late filling this in, but just want to mention: I loved it there, i met awesome people, and the staff was very nice, with helping me arrange train tickets, finding out how to ferry from Qingdao to Incheon and arranging a tour to the great wall! :D. Also the extra's that they offer, especially the food it was delicious! :D Definitely recommending this hostel and staying here again if i return
This is a nice hostel for back packers on a budget rooms are clean but a little worn. Unfortunately when we stayed there were some very noisy guests who were not asked to be quiet even though they were very noisy for several hours in the early hours of the morning. Eventually I went out myself. we checked out after one night.
Great choice. In an original hutong about 20 minutes walk from Tianamen square. The hostel has great big clean bunks and excellent showers. The courtyard is fantastic to chill in the evening and relax. The hostel is a little overpriced in my opinion but the service and breakfast make up for it in my opinion. Its not a party place but ideal to get a rest and explore beijing in comfort
Very nice staff, very clean hostel. The activities they host are fun. However, the location is a bit out of the way and there are cheaper options in Beijing.
Excellent staff ! the guy in the front desk is very friendly, always tries to help you. The activities are good, specially dumplings party. The only thing should be improved is the cleanliness in the rooms.
All the people working at the hostel where extremely kind and helpful. The activities they have planned for each day of the week make a great opportunity to meet the other guests. Loved my stay in Beijing!
In short this hostel is well worth visiting :-)
