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.

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).

Awesome hostel with a great atmosphere. Staff are really friendly and always available. Ideal for someone travelling solo as there are daily tours organised and a lively bar with regular activities organised. I would definitely recommend it.

A really great hostel! Very close to the subway station and the staff are really helpful. The 4 bed room I had was so quiet at night you could hear a pin drop. If you want to be meet new people there is a lively bar on the ground floor at the back. The curtains around each bed are a nice touch and there was an electrical socket right next to the bed so I could charge my phone at night. I would stay here again next time I'm in Beijing.

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!!

Amazing staff and great location just 5 minutes walking from the subway station. The room was a little small for the 4 of us though... But I clearly recommend it.

Very nice Place to stay.. nice bar where u can have breakfast etc. Staff speaks english very well. Nice people there.. all in all highly recommended

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.
