Very good location and helpful staff. Plenty of restaurants around (better and cheaper than the hostel's café). Only downside are the showers poorly located in the bathroom.


Friendly staff, clean room, and fast internet access

Hostel was clean and staff was helpful and spoke good English. Beds were alright, I've definitely had way worse in China. Wifi worked pretty well, sometimes struggled with it in the room. They have a bar with happy hour but not many guests seemed to utilize this. All in all it was a pleasant stay.


All the girls are very very lovely. They help you with any issue you have (if they can, travel or otherwise). "Lemon" at the bar was especially nice. It is very centrally and conveniently located at the intersection of two subway lines. Also it is rather small so you get to know your fellow guests better.


Bit damp in room otherwise nice place to stay. Convenient for metro airport transfer. Friendly staff. Slightly over priced western food but I guess that's China


Nice staff!! Good location!!! Clean rooms!! Center of Beijing!!!

Thanks for your review.Looking forward to seeing you next time.


Decent place in central location near metro. Staff does their best to help out. The only common area is the expensive bar, so not a good choice if you want to meet up with other travelers.


Great hostel, i have stayed in other hostels in Beijing but i like this one the best! They need better direction from the metro station to the actual hostel location though. Staff speaks great english and are very friendly. Great atmosphere and budget food is nearby.


Really excellent hostel. Thanks.


We had a great time - really lovely staff.


All in all this was a great hostel. The staff were wonderful, very friendly, learned our names and took the time to actually get to know us. The breakfast is quite good although a touch expensive, which is to be expected when buying food at a hostel. The room was small, but we didn't mind as we were out most of the day. There is wifi everywhere. No safe in the room which would have been nice. Everything considered, this is a great hostel, if you're not too picky and enjoy a warm homey stay.


We had a good stay at Happy Dragon hostel, the staff are very friendly and helpful and we took part in the Great Wall tours which include good food to get you through the day and 3 hours of free time on the wall with no secret added extras. The dorms are basic but comfortable and the location is great for the subway and sightseeing around Beijing. we were only here briefly so didn't get to take advantage of the bar but there is a cheap happy hour :)


Only a twenty minute walk to the Forbidden City, and close to the bus stop from the airport /and/ the airport express subway. Also near some really great restaurants, which the staff will be happy to point out to you. The place has a good vibe, and a very international crowd. I'm thinking of making another stop in Beijing on the way home, and if this place isn't booked up, I'm definitely staying here again.


Nice area to stay at


No special comments. For the staff everything was perfect, you were really friendly.


Good hostel, nice location, nice environment, clean rooms and very safe


We had a great stay here. The small bar area made it certain that you'd make some new friends. The staff were very helpful and even posted us our coats to our next destination, which we had accidentally left behind.


Very nice staff & cleaning lady!! Easy to find. Center of the city!! Just outside of subway!! Many restaurants around. Great shower, clean bathroom. Cozy room:)) everything you want :))))
