One word which you are looking for this hostel/hotel is pathetic!!! There are just so many things about this hostel which make it the worst place to stay!!! 1. The moment we checked in, they said that they havent received any deposit (173 RMB about 30 Euros) which we paid online while booking this place!! Money down the drain. 2. When we checked out, there were 4 of us who wanted to leave 1 day before and they even charged another 10 Euros making a lame excuse.

Everything was fine but it's rediculous that you need to keep the deposit receipt in order to get your deposit back

Everything is good. Cleanliness can improve, also the water flow in the bathroom is not to smooth, please check the drain.


The people at the reception desk are completely stupid and rude. No wifi in the rooms. Wifi in the lobby sucks.


Consider: The Hotel does not accept credit card, although it was mentioned that it would be accpeted on the website. Comfortable room. Bathroom not good and/or clean. Wi-fi conection only on the Lobby. Good location


Thge place is very good to stay in ,,, in comparable with other hostels


Booked a single room during a fully booked weekend in April, got upgraded to a double room. The best location for a hostel with only 10 minutes walk to the forbidden city. However, I missed a hostel bar to hang around at during the night. English speaking staff and affordable prices would definitely made me come back next time in Beijing

This place was more of a budget hotel than a hostel. Great location, walking distance to Tiananmen Square. Travel agent in the lobby to help you book a visit to the Wall, and any other activities you'd like.


Staff was friendly, location close to shopping areas and the subway. I would stay here again.

Wish they hadn't closed the bar, as there aren't really any other public spaces in the building to hang out and meet people. But otherwise it was decent - reasonably clean and a very good price for a bed in Beijing.
