Very close to Metro exit. Unfortunately no fresh air in the dorms. Getting towels! Little shops are close, supermarkt at Dongsi station, and many restaurants close by. Staff very nice and helpful. Wifi didnt work inside the rooms, thus we always had to walk into the hall or the bar.

I stayed in a mixed dorm with attached bathroom. The bathroom was huge. The Wifi connection was very weak. The staff was very friendly, I booked the Mutianyu Great Wall Tour and like it very much (although I generally dislike group tours). The food in the restaurant was yummy (try the Spaghetti with basil pesto), but I think there were not enough choices vor Vegetarians. The location is conveniently close to the MRT and in a traditional Hutong alley, nice!

I booked a dorm in 6-bed,then stayed in4bed dorm ,the location is good ,you can go to main spots by metro easily and it is just 2minutes walk.The staff is really great,always smiling and try their best to solve problems.There is a bar inside where you can make friends as well as order good food although I just stayed one night!!The MuTianYuGreat Wall is highly recommended!!Will definitely come back to finish other spots!!

Really nice hostel located in the middle of Beijing. Friendly staff and a lot of trips to choose from if you want an English-speaking guide. The only disadvantage are the beds which are super hard.

We found the directions unclear and it took us a while to find the hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful. Provided us with useful information as to where to eat, tours etc. It was comfortable. The only common area is the bar/restaurant so it feels more like a hotel.

My favourite hostel so far, out of the four I have been to. Staff are great, bed sheets are changed, u can book excursions through them, lockers are conveniently placed. Abut crampt but still very clean. Maybe the location isn't that ideal but there is a tram stop nearby. There is cafe/bar where u can meet other travellers. Great hostel.

We had a good time here. Possibly the best thing was the location. Being next to a subway station made travel easy. The only thing that was odd was being told that only one device can access the wireless network (in a room of four people). Thankfully, the staff allowed more than one device to connect. For those of us who live in Wuhan, the place wasn't that cheap, but for Beijing I think the price was fine.

Amazing amazing amazing Hostel. Ive been traveling around the world and i have to admit that this hostel is the best hostel i ever experienced. The stuff is amazingly friendly, good trained and soooo helpful. I do recommend this hostel to all my friends and i would even recommend it to everyone. The rooms are perfectly clean, the neighbours are super friendly and in front of the hostel is an amazing Chinese restaurant. It is worth to visit it.

Ended up staying longer after losing my passport and the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. They helped me out at every step including making phone calls and eventually booking my flight home for me, which took a very long time to do. I would definitely recommend this place if you are going to Beijing, met a lot of really cool people while staying her making my stay even more fun. Definitely do the great wall tour!

We stayed in this hostel for a week and found it a pleasant experience in the mixed dorm which had separate lockers for each bunk and an adapter for each bed. The bed was made daily and all the staff were friendly. We found the wifi sometimes dropped but the staff were helpful at addressing all of our questions. The bathroom wasn't cleaned within our stay but the bin was regularly. We also couldn't go on the hostel tours as there was only 2 of us but staff helped to find our way there ourselves.

The place desperately needs a courtyard where smokers and other guests can access wifi and can get food and drink. At present people are sitting on uncomfortable steps in front of the hostel. Not only does this not look good for the hostel, it is not good for guests. Otherwise, good hostel.
