What a wonderful place, so friendly and clean. Mark, the manager, couldn't do enough to make our stay in Beijing one of the best experiences we had ever had. The hotel is so handy for everything, shopping, restaurants, transport, Forbidden City 20mins walk away The rooftop terrace is wonderful, sitting up there after the madness of Beijing was so fabulous. Thanks Mark, and your staff for your wonderful hospitality. We will be back next time we visit our daughter in China xxx

I was only in Beijing for 1 night on an 18-hour layover en route to the US, but my brief stay at Kelly's was excellent. Great facilities with particularly comfortable beds in the private room I stayed in. While the neighborhood isn't the most visually appealing or colorful, I was in a location very close to a subway station that was very convenient for making the most of the 1 night and 1 morning I was in town. Staff was EXTREMELY HELPFUL in suggesting how best to spend the few hours I had.


This was an excellent choice for our family. The location is absolutely ideal, with convenient access to two subway stations and the busy Xisi St, while being tucked away in a friendly and authentic-feeling hutong. John was very helpful in directing us to attractions and making recommendations to get the most out of our limited time in Beijing.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice breakfast. Room was small but with a nice ambiance.


thanks to Mark, it was a wonderful period. Thanks for all your help. Hope see you again.


Kelly's Courtyard was a fantastic surprise from what I expected. + The host was very welcoming, informative, and attentive to my needs. He made recommendations which saved me money and time. + The rooms are quite comfortable, spacious, and clean. + This is the most value for accommodation I've ever gotten from renting from HostelWorld. + I would stay here again and every time I return to Beijing. - Difficult to find, however a map and phone number are provided


This is often said on Hostelworld but this is by far the best hostel I've stayed in. It's a quaint hostel only 5 minutes walk from two subway stations (best print directions otherwise you'll get lost). John and Mark were helpful from the very beginning. They greeted us when we arrived at the hostel at 2am and were always helpful in suggesting daily itineraries for us. John was very thorough in his directions to the Wall. I have never met staff like them. Highly recommended.


My favourite hostel ever! Such a relaxing spot with the most helpful owner and manger - John and Mark. Loved it there! Great location, close to shopping street and beside subway station. The rooms were so cosy and homely! I will definitely return!

Really pretty and clean. The staff is friendly and kind. Good location (but, it's a bit hard at the first time if u have a poor sense of direction like me)


this place was small, very clean, staff was fabulous, regular hostel breakfast and very close to subway and short walk to a TON of shopping centers. love this place.


I felt that Kelly's courtyard is more hotel than hostel. It's beutiful and peaceful place, perfect for a couple or people how like peaceful athmostphare. It's not young backpacker crazy party hostel - and we loved that. Price is not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. It's very good hostel! Location is good, near to the subway, shops and restaurants close by. Kelly's husband speaks very good english, it's easy to communicate with him. Also he is such a nice and helpful person.
