A wonderful hostel near the main subway, tucked away on one of the Hutongs. The owner, John and manager, Mark made us most welcome, helped with ideas of where to go and eat and also arranged our trip to the Great Wall. Only slight negative was you could feel the springs in the bed but still got a good night's sleep! Would highly recommend this as a great place to stay when you visit Beijing


We weren't sure we had made the right decision when we first got to Kelly's, but quickly adjusted not only to the accommodation but also to the hutong and to the city. The staff were very attentive and helpful, and the location was better than we first thought.


The staff and other guests were great - and made our experience so special. The location was great too; subway was close by and very easy to use.

Kelly's is absolutely amazing! Mark,the manager, was great and his recommendations and helpfulness really made our stay in beijing fantastic. The hotel itself is incredible--great location, fabulous ambience and the room was very comfortable. Kelly's is an unbelievable value for the money and I would definitely stay here again. And did I mention Mark is the best? From the Great Wall to the steamed bun shop around the corner he really made our stay awesome. Kelly's is the best!

Kelly's is a nice little and quiet place in a origonal Hutong neighboorhood at the West of the Forbidden City. It is not too far away from a metro station. I recommend to follow the instructions of the owner to get there, otherwise it is pretty hard to find. Our room was small, but clean. The atmosphere is great and Mark, the manager, is very friendly and extremely helpfull. The only problem we had was that a noise from a machine that was well heard in our room at night.


Mark was incredibly helpful and kind, he made our stay at Kelly's enjoyable and comfortable.
