Very nice stay in this hostel. The double room was clean and comfortable, with a big bathroom. We took the tour to the Great Wall at Jinshanling and it was great. The hostel is very close by subway from every sight in the city but there is not much to do in the direct neighborhood. Only bad thing: we stayed there 5 nights and two times, there was no hot water in the bathroom.

clean, helpful staff and close to the subway. there is a nice bar but the beer is expensive. more a hotel than a hostel.

The staff were nice and location good. The beds and room were comfortable except the room was overheated at night - they recommended we leave the window open but with the pollution.. Reviews said the internet was sometimes slow but there were days I could not send an email. They were apologetic but no solutions. The food in the cafe was good but expensive. Our shower barely dribbled out water but other showers had good flow. I will probably try a different hostel next time I am in Beijing.

Brilliant hostel in great location near metro. Staff are always very friendly and helpful, and make your visit personalised and help you with any information you need. Personal lockers in rooms for keeping valuables safe. Would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Beijing.

Stayed in the 6 bunk room. Clean, comfortable, has socket and light. Towel available. Great place for meeting people or just needing a bed for the night. Only complaint is that the WiFi connection is not very stable. Overall good value for money.

Such a great hostel. The best one I've stayed in (and I've stayed in a few throughout Europe). Highly recommend.

El staff es muy amable. La ubicacion perfecta, se puede ir a los sitios turisticos tan solo tomando 2 estaciones de metro, el cual queda a una cuadra. Cerca de restaurantes, bares y bancos. Lo unico malo es que el servicio de lavanderia es un poco elevado y no cuentan con secadora, por lo que en invierno es muy dificil que se seque pronto la ropa. El hutong parece inseguro pero no lo es. Lo mejor es el restaurante-bar, comida excelente y la hora feliz ayuda a la convivencia con los demas.

a nice, clean, well-run place just a quick walk from a fairly central subway station. atmosphere is ok but unremarkable in comparison to other beijing hostels - the place is down-to-earth and businesslike, and the restaurant/common area is not huge. but the prices are good, so is the food, and i met some great people. go for the asahi draft beer if you're up for a drink - same price as the tiny tsingdao, and twice as much fun.

This was a great place to stay, staff were really helpful and very friendly, room was clean and warm, also really easy place to find from the subway because it is not very far from a subway station, this makes travel around Beijing very easy. All in all had a great stay there would definitely recommend this place.

Great cheap rooms, great staff, great location! Right next to MTR station and within walking distance of great restaurants. Awesome mix of people staying here; met many great people which was made easier by the attached car/cafe. Tours were a bit overpriced, but convenience made up for it. Bathrooms could stand to be cleaned/restocked a bit more often, but other than that, no complaints!

The Hostel itself is good. But the bar in the Hostel is awesome. The food is not cheap but the quality is great. They have a beer Happy Hour everyday from 6-8pm where you get 2x 0,5L draft beer for 20 kuai. Therefore always a good time too meet a lot of other people from around the globe!! The great wall tour organized by the hostel was also great!

Brilliant hostel! The best I've stayed in in China. Only small bad point is the bar is a little small and there's no games/dvd room.
