Dirty rooms and toilets. The dorms have long term residents that have been living there over a year. At first we were put in a 4 bed room that had 5 people living in it, it took the reception staff a long time to solve the problem, eventually we were moved to a different room. This place is a hotel that also has dorms, there is no "travellers atmosphere" and no common area. The staff is very unhelpful and not nice. There are 6 bed dorms available that are not advertised on this app.

Hotel with some dorm rooms. My dorm had long stay guests who took up all the locker space and free beds. Some lockers broken. Generally clean. WiFi OK. Location excellent. Tour desk downstairs is good.

My stay here was amazing. The location was perfect as it is very near two subway-metro stations and right in front of the bus stand. Its near this really nice local market where you can enjoy a night walk. It's 10 minutes walking to the forbidden city and the sqaure. My room was clean and the place was nice. Just one thing, the staff wasn't very friendly.

If you're looking for a cheap bed in Beijing in a convenient location, this is it. However, it offers nothing else. Much of the staff were almost willfully unhelpful, sometimes even outright rude. This was really disappointing after dealing with so many wonderful people working at other China hostels. Also, only some rooms come with a kettle so you'll have to buy potable water. If you spend another 20rmb/night on a room, you can get an all-around much better stay out of other hostels in Beijing.

Great location as a base for exploring Beijing, close to a metro stop and Tienanmen Square so really couldn't be any better! Dorm rooms were spacious with a good en suite bathroom, though the beds were pretty hard, and the people we were sharing the dorm with were checked in and shown into the room at 4am which was a bit annoying. Place seemed to lack any communal area so probably not the place to go if you're looking to meet other people. But overall a great stay for us!

The main drawback is the lack of English-speaking staff member. Other than that, it is a very nice place to stay. Rooms have a reasonable size, are clean (everyday) and tidy. Lockers are small, so, if you plan to travel with large bags, consider this. The location is perfect, right in the heart of Beijing city. Forbidden City and Tian'men Square are a 10-minute walking, subway is easy to access (two stations from different lines within walking distance). Plenty of local food restaurants nearby.
