The staff was absolutely GREAT! Very helpful and always with a smile on their face!


An excellent place to stay in for the nights especially if you are going to spend your time all day outside wandering the city. Although the room (single private) was not as fancy as hotel rooms, it was still comfortable. Personnel on duty were extremely helpful and with good conversational english to boot! Has its own bar/cafe too! Excellent location! It was easy to find them! Close to the subways making it easy to travel around even late at nights or early mornings! Highly recommended! :D


Extremely happy and helpful staff. Great Location.

Staff both in the bar and behind reception were brilliant, the bar is lovely with great food and drinks. The great wall tour we did was a good day out.


I had a good stay in this hostel. Location is good, not far to Forbidden City, Tian'anmen square etc. Rooms are nice and clean, only that the shower is directly next to the toilet and there is no curtain is not so good. After showering the whole floor of the bathroom, including toilet is wet. I did the wall tour of the hostel, which worked out pretty good. Only breakfast was unfortunatelly cold. But got it on another day where it warm. Sometimes you have to remind staff that you ordered a drink


Lounge area is the bar cafe. Not much wifi. Rooms have wifi and spacious. Staff members are very helpful. Shower facilities were horrible. They need to upgrade.


Great place. Bar area is lively even on a cold and bleak Beijing day - and a nice selection of beer to boot. Staff is kind, helpful, and easy to talk to. This kind of place is the reason I stay in hostels instead of normal hotels.


Great hostel, staff are so helpful and speak good English, amazing location right on the subway, the beds are comfy and showers are hot! I did one of the Great Wall tours through them and it was great, no scams or gimmicks.. Definately recommend!


stayed there 2 nights - everything was perfect. Staff was super friendly. They have a really nice bar at the first floor!


The staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. The location is amazing; right near a subway station and a 25 minute walk to great areas of Beijing.


The staff, as always, were super friendly. And the location was en better. Every time I go to beijing, I stay here.


Amazing cool hostel. Didnt expect that kind of quality from Chinese hostel, but nevertheless I like staying here though we stayed only one night. Location is perfect, just follow the directions given by the hostel. Beds are comfy, sheets and toilet are clean. Loved their bar, though it closes at 12am(( Stuff speaks perfect English and helpful all the time. Would definitely stay here next time if I have a chance to come to Beijing.


beautiful hostel with gorgous stuff. The only thing i would recommend is more private toilets. Maybe a proper door or no space between door and ground :) Thanks so much for the great time in beijing-i felt safe and home.

Great place to stay. Perfect location, really friendly and helpful staff, good bar with cheap beer and a good vibe. Highly recommend as a perfect place to stay in Beijing .


The best feature of this hostel is its staff. They are able to communicate (in English) very well and are able to give suggestions. Plus, they have a display and description of possible sites and activities; practically every major highlight you can see in beijing. This includes subway directions, taxi fare, and a whole lot of useful info. Breakfast is expensive at 60 RMB for bread and a few additions; but other than that this Hostel is VALUE FOR MONEY - Rev, Philippines


Checked in late night with the receptionist waiting just for me in the wee hours. Great friendly atmosphere. A go to hostel.


Really friendly staff and the hostel is very clean. Every day they have an event in the bar, which is nice. Location is very good, close to the metro which is very convenient. Had a very pleasant stay!


Great to have curtains around each bed for some privacy, and having a light and power socket was great! There weren't any hooks in the rooms though which was annoying. And the shower drain in the communal bathroom on the second floor kept blocking


Fantastically located hostel for exploring Beijing. Close to the easy to use Subway, walking distance of most things as well. Staff are amazingly helpful and provide you with all information you could possibly need and are able to recommend excellent local eateries you may normally walk past (and write names in Chinese for you!). Was made to feel part of the family immediately and was please with the tours booked with them directly. Everything a hostel should be. Highly recommended.


Such good customer service! The receptionist met me briefly on check in and remembered my name for the duration of my stay there. Very welcome!
