The facilities are good. Unfortunately, all the rooms and the bathrooms are situated around the courtyard. I went there in november and the weather was bad. The dorms were cold and the bathrooms were even worse. Taking a shower when the weather is 0 degree in the lavatories is not at all confortable. I would recommend this hostel only for summer time.

This is a cute little place. It is not as busy as other hostels even though they have a nice bar. The rooms a good but our bathroom was a little moldy. It seems as if they are renovating. Thus this might improve in the future. We also stayed at the neighboring dragon king hostel when we flew back from China which seems to be more busy if you are looking for a hostel bar. We liked the rooms here better, though.

The best part about this place was that in the center of the hostel was a wonderful bar and many places to sit down around and meet people. The subway was really close to the hostel so you can get everywhere and the price I felt was good especially during holiday.

What a great time! Staff were helpful and friendly, even at 4:30am! Breakfast was delicious and the Great Wall Tour was spectacular! And meeting fellow travelers was wonderful! Made many friends.

huge bed good location (near subway, restaurants and supermarkets) offer a variety of tours (f.e. to the great wall) - at our second day some worms came out of the sink. lasted till our last day - also the sink is really smelly but we guess that's normal in Beijing - the only thing the cleaning staff did in our 5 nights was emptying the bin and making the bed - in the hostel bar we asked for some icecream at 8 o'clock in the evening but we didn't get any. That was so disappointing

We stayed here for the first time about 10 days ago with intentions to move to Beijing. We fell in love with the area so much that we're now coming back again tomorrow to house hunt and get our own hutong! We were able to work from the cafe and our private room, which is extremely important as people who have an online business. If you're a traveler, a business person, a local, or a tourist, you need to stay here! Thanks guys! -Monica @ New Life ESL www.newlifeesl.com

Good location, close to metro and easy to get around. We stayed in a private twin and room was clean and enough space. Staff were helpful and welcoming. Would stay again.

The hostel was nice and clean. The staff spoke English adequately though they were not particularly outgoing. The location in a hutong was cool and it is close to a metro station. The bar is quite nice and was a good place to meet other travellers.

While Happy Dragon Courtyard itself may not be the most amazing hostel out there, the staff more than makes up for it. Not only was everyone polite, but they were kind, caring, sweet, but they were always willing to go above and beyond to help as well. I had a wonderful experience staying here due 75% to the staff, and 25% to the cool and friendly guests I met there.

Extremely helpful and friendly staff. A sociable place, with a great bar / cafe to meet people and chat - although that does mean you have to relax into a little evening noise.

Pretty location, close to subway, rooms clean and facilities fab! Part of Happy Dragon chain which we highly recommend having stayed in two other Happy Dragon hostels.

The main reason I booked this hostel was for the tours they offered, and they told me they no longer do them due to lack of interest. The only one they do is the Great Wall. There's no dumpling party or any group activities like it says. Not sure what "security" is besides having the desk manned 24/7. It's kept clean and the cafe is pretty good. Located down a sketchy alley, but super close to the subway. If you're looking for nothing more than a place to sleep, it's for you.
