By far the best hostel we've stayed in all of China!! All the staff (reception and bar) speaks really good English (which is very hard to find in China), and they are extremely helpful and cool. Overall it was one of the best hostels I can remember. If going to the Great Wall, book the tour for Mutianyu; you only go to the wall (i.e. no shopping stops or added shows), you get both breakfast and great lunch, and the wall is far more deserted. Going on your own to Badaling is almost impossible!!

The staff in reception and the bar were really friendly and helpful. It would have been nice to have a bigger lounge area to relax in and to sit on comfortable chairs/sofas as the stools in the bar were fine for a short time but uncomfortable to sit on for very long. The outside deck area on the 3rd floor was very messy but could have been a nice outdoor seating area if it was tidied up. The curtains around each bunk were a great idea to give some privacy in the mixed dorms.

Very helpful and friendly staff. More bathrooms/toilets/showers (or a bigger one to what you already have) would be an improvement though.

It was a brilliant weekend in Beijing. The staff was very nice and knew our names after the first day. The rooms were very clean and big for a hostel. The best part were the additional offerings of the hostel, such as dumpling party on Friday where we learned how to make dumplings on our own and the trips to shows and the great wall which were very nice and in comparison to other tours very cheap!!! I really recommend to do one of this tours at least!

You might not imagine the feeling when we received your highly appraised at that time, kind of indescribable excitement and emotion, so thank you for your support and encouragement to us. To be honest, what we always do is just to make all guests feel at home-relaxed, happy. Hope you have a nice trip. We are waiting for you all the time.

I loved this place. The bar, daily specials and reasonable food prices really sold it. People were also very social here, a stark contrast to other Chinese hostels. The staff really sell this place though. They are excellently trained in customer service and made me and my friend feel very welcome. Give that girl Candice a raise - she remembered us by name! Very impressive considering the volume. Totally recommend this place!

Friendly staff, perfect location close to a subway station and the subway is super easy to use to explore Beijing! Tours are good value for money and the staff were really useful as I have some good allergies and they wrote some things in Chinese for me! Going to stay again at the end of our trip!

It was a great pleasure to stay there!!! It locates perfectly fine for those who wants to stay in the Hutong area in Beijing! The neighborhood is so quiet during the night. The Stuff are really really nice and helpful! The bar downstairs was really fun, I met many friends there! The meals are quite delicious with an affordable price! I stayed at 4 bed mixed dorm, it was great! I would definitely come back for next time staying in Dongcheng Area!!! Thanks to the stuff, you guys are so helpful!!!

The rooms were nice and clean. Big lockers. You need your own padlocks. They only had 2 toilets and 2 showers per floor and they could have been definitely cleaner. The location is great because is next to a metro station but then it could be in a nicer neighborhood or downtown. They don't have a kitchen so you're technically forced to pay each morning for breakfast at their bar/cafè which adds up on your budget. Go to the place across the hostel for dinner and try the roasted chicken wings!

The Dragon King is in a great location right down the street from the metro which could take you anywhere you wanted to go in the city. It was also down a quiet alley of a busy food & shopping street which was great for getting a breakfast on the run in the mornings! The bathrooms were ok and decent-sized and the beds were average for a hostel. Overall I'd recommend it.
