The location was perfect. Close to everything and in a very cute tucked back road. The hostel is a good price so although the bathroom was not very clean and the atmosphere was just average, it was a fair price for what you get. We didn't stay at the room at all during the day so just needed it to sleep, it did the trick and kept us safe and happy!

Little Mao is very close to the MUST VISIT location - The Forbidden City. The metro and bus are fairly close as well as various street vendors, restaurants and a pharmacy. Little Mao requests that you re-confirm your reservation 24 hours before you arrival, so PLEASE DO SO. We stayed in a Twin Private Ensuite w/ a Private Bathroom. The room was pretty clean, I can't say the same about the restrooms. It needed a more attention. That is my only complaint. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
