The hostel offers great value for money. There's no breakfast included nor are the bathrooms ensuite spotlessly clean, however, the location is very good and you feel safe there. It's like a peaceful harbour after whole day of wandering around in the hustle and bustle of Beijing.

Fantastic hostel and very friendly staff

Good dorms with toilet inside. It's more like an hotel than an hostel. Should have a kitchen... Close to the subway.

Friendly people, English speaking at the reception and friendly communication by e-mail. Good location close to the metro station Zhangzizhonglu. Point of attention: a bit thin mattress, when sleeping on your side.

Candice is fantastic, the bar is good, the location is good, there is also a little bar if you turn left out of the hostel that does really cheep excellent cocktails. The airport pick up taxi hadn't got a clue where the hostel was which sucked, I recommend you make your own way there.

The hostel meant I had such a great time in Beijing! The staff there are so helpful and friendly and do everything they can to ensure a good stay. Candice, Ruby and Simon are great behind the desk. The hostel also has a decent bar where you can meets lots of different travelers. Frequent free social workshops held by the hostel are also a great way to meet new people.

Central beijing location, 20 mins walk to food market etc or 3 min walk to subway. Nice staff, great rooms and nice vibe! Bar was a bit expensive but 4yuan beer available from a shop 10m away!

We shared a 4-br with ensuite bathroom. It's true the beds are softer than average in China and having a curtain was cool. The lockers were spatious to fit ur backpack. TP, gel&shampoo were provided. The staff was very nice and helpful and the atmosphere was cool. However, the prices were waay too high for what we got; stinky bathrooms that were never cleaned, clogged showers (ensuite and shared), laundry that still smelled bad after washing and was not delivered on the promised time. Meh food.

I stayed in the dragonking a youple of weeks ago and had to change rooms for the last night (missed my train and checked in again). First room was fine, second had bed bugs. Next morning they relocated everybody else to other rooms and the overall impression was really good. Keep in mind to check for bed bugs at every hostel you're staying at! check youtube if you don't know how...

The staff here were truly outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble, they were extremely knowledgeable and really went that extra mile. The hostel is right next to the subway/metro and there are some nice restaurants nearby. I've only done one wall tour so can't compare what I saw to the others available but I was extremely satisfied with the one the hostel arranged, my highlight of my week in Beijing in fact. If I'm ever back in Beijing will definitely be staying here again. Xie xie ni

This hostel had really comfortable beds/ curtains around the beds, good sized lockers. Only a couple of bathrooms so often busy/ bit dirty. Bar good, friday night dumplings a great time!

The hostel is excellent and they are really professional. They provide you a card to enter the rooms and in the walls you have a lot of information about the city. The staff is really helpful and they have a cool bar inside the building.

Good hostel, for 12 dollars i've got a 4bed room with air conditoner AND bathroom inside the room. Very clean, very good beds, they provide towels and shampoo. Staff speak english and are nice and helpful. They run tours to the great wall also. The bar inside the hostel has good atmosphere but is kind of expensive (in the same street you can buy beer for 1/5 the price).
