This was my second time staying at Lucky Family Hostel. The directions it provides are easy to follow, and the hostel is fairly clean. I found the staff to be very helpful and patient when I was trying to reserve a table at a Peking Duck restaurant. It's in the hutong alleys, which makes for a very picturesque walk, but the inside of the hostel isn't very atmospheric. The location is great. One complaint I have is that they need to update their online info about free breakfasts. Not free anymore


On the homepage it said that the breakfast was included but when we arrived the staff told us it was just a special offer for a certain time which we missed so the breakfast was not included in the price. But the staff gave as a discount on the regular breakfast which was really nice.


This is the second time I stay in this hostel. Although the place is a hutong area (which is not clean enough at all) the hostel itself is worth a stay. The subway station is almost round the corner.


Choose this hostel if u come to Beijing,we tried a few! PRO: staff is helpful,friendly plus good English.free luggage storage,5mins from subway,in hutong,lots of cheap Restaurants around,3 bed private room: big with LOTS of plugs CON: water didn’t drain well so our bathroom was floaded whenever we showered. Told them but nothing changed. Their kids play online games on common computers which makes wifi even slower than usual.Don’t get the veggie breakfast: hashbrown=potato slices with oil/pepper


very helpful staff, worked extra to accomidate when my other hostel fell through. Nice private rooms, decent wifi in the room, constant hot water. a little hard to find, but worth it in my opinion.


Hostel has an awesome location, staff is very friendly, everybody speaks English, that is a big plus for those who doesn't know chinese. Rooms are pretty comfortable and clean. Can't say anything bad about my staying, except that you should think something on iron and hear-dryer, those could be very usefull :))Thank you, guys, a lot!

Has everything you need. Breakfast's are good. A little hard to find at first.


Very nice staff and atmosphere! My only complaint is that the food service was unreasonably slow. We really enjoyed our stay.


Clean and new rooms. Good location and nice staff. In all, highly recommend. But still there are some few points: the WIFI was so slow that it took minutes to open a website. And while I booked their website said they offered free breakfast, but when I arrived it has been cancelled, without any notice. Also I left an important message to the counter clerk, but she didn't pass it to the person. This is a very nice hostel and that's why I'd like to share my feeling to help them improve
