We enjoyed our stay here. It was great coming back to a quiet space after a day out in Beijing and being able to chill out in the courtyard. Real friendly atmosphere. Mark who pretty much runs things there is really helpful and friendly. Thanks Mark.

Great location. Very cosy atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff.


Kelly's Courtyard is by far the best accommodation I have ever found on Hostelworld (I have traveled to 40+ countries and stayed in Hostelworld bookings in them all). Mark and John(the owner), were incredibly helpful in assisting us in navigating our stay in Beijing. The accomodations are beautiful with an authentic, vintage aesthetic. The living area (courtyard) is covered with a glass ceiling so if you need to get away from the smog, the heat, or rain, you're covered. BOOK IT.


Kelly's Courtyard is serene and classy. Perfect place to stay to get away from reality and enjoy peace and quiet. The atmosphere is definitely this hostel's main asset. They even offer to help with tours to the Great Wall with your own private driver. It's a little bit more pricier but is worth the money when you are traveling in a small group. The location however is very hard to find. Don't worry, when you call the hostel, they are more than happy to talk to the taxi driver.


Stunningly beautiful--we had a hard time convincing ourselves to leave the hostel and explore Beijing!


Very friendly and helpful staff, nice atmosphere


Bob at the hostel was excellent! Very helpful and put us onto a great tour while we were there.


Great choice, friendly staff and my bed was very comfortable. If you want an alternative to a western hotel this is it. Make sure you have the phone number and map for taxi driver. Thanks Kelly Cortyard you are doing a great job


A little gem in the heart of Beijing. Mark the manager was extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for us. His English is excellent. The rooms were clean and pretty. The communal areas were lovely. The courtyard made a beautiful breakfast area and the rooftop terrace was a perfect spot for a cold beer after a long day sight-seeing.


Very nice place to stay, the staff is very helpful and the facilities are great.
