One of my favorite hostels. Why? -In the middle of a hutong: very authentic but easily found when with the map on their site. 200m from a subway stop. -Two common rooms to make friends -They offer great wall tours that are worth the money -Bank, shops, restaurants all very close by. If you're facing the alley leading to the hostel from the big street (where the subway is), enter the little yellow restaurant to the right of it. Great chinese food, almost free. -Wanted to stay longer.

This place is probably the best hostel in Beijing! ))) It is very cosy and the staff is super friendly and helpful ! Also you are likely to meet the greatest people who may take you out for a dinner or for a walk around the city. Location is perfect - subway station is nearby and there are some shops and restaurants. Coffee and tea available all day long and breakfast is free and nice) I will come again)

Most staff had good English which was helpful. Good to have basic breakfast. Travelled with 3 kids under 8 and they loved it. Location was a little difficult for taxi's to find. Staff helpful with Great Wall tour and our family transport needs. Thanks.

It's China. Seems like everyplace is dirty and sketchy- like getting to the Lucky Family Hostel, but once you are on the premises it is like an oasis! Real toilet, real hot water, real coffee! The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is friendly, helpful and speaks English. A great stay and a good bargain. Thank you!

The hostel is conveniently located within walking distance of the Forbidden City - a little hard to find at first inside the hutong. Breakfast is basic . Rooms are clean and a common room is available. Staff are friendly and helpful

Stayed here twice, nice staff, good value for money. The front desk is always staffed, which is great if you have to leave very early in the morning. Fellow hostellers seem to be mostly Europeans, also many people are staying long term, looking for work, etc.

It is totally valuable for the money, i paid 50 RMB including breakfast. And, we can enjoy the coffee for free all the day!!! And I really hope that our boss, Mr. Sun, will think about creating a place for the guests to hang their clothes, if someone like me, who washes by themselves.

The Lucky Family is all right, just be sure to fill a late arrival time if you don't know in advance. Otherwise reception may be brisk and/or your stay cancelled. Rooms are small and open to tiny courtyard. Location central but quiet, overall good value.

In general, the hotel and bedroom was good for the money we paid. However, our room was next to the common rooms and people there were really noisy which doesn't help to sleep. Also, there wasn't any toiletries available in the room but you could buy them from the hotel reception (there is a cheaper shop just on the main road). There was wi-fi but the signal was extremely poor so you couldn't really do much. Staff was friendly and they can speak English.

The Hostel is fine, location is good since subway is very close and its not so difficult to find, it's located in a Hutong, you can feel the almosphere of the life there. The only detail I found is the Wifi it's some times signal was week and was not possible to use internet. Personal is friendly, helpful and of course you can speak with them in English.

Comfortable, well maintained rooms. Staff is helpful and location near to zhangzizhonglu is great. Feels extremely safe and neighbors were reasonably quiet.

I lived in beijing for a year and was so surprised to see a nice clean bathroom! The location is near a subway but quiet. Also on the street is a school for people with learning difficulties that anyone can visit from 11-3. The hostel staff were very helpful. Toast and cereal were free for breakfast and there was free tea and coffee all day :D also free computer use and two great chill out zones (plus the extra one on the roof if you're carefully climbing the steep stairs). See you again!

We had a great stay at Lucky Family - the facilities were very nice, breakfast was included,the location was great, and above all else the staff were so, so helpful. Everything I needed, they provided, whether it was a tour to the Great Wall, a hairdryer, a train booking, or having my postcards mailed. Thanks for a great stay!

The hotel was clean and good value for money, i would recommend this hostel for being a good place to stay, but the location was very hard to find even with a map, and if you get lost coming home late one night and cant speak chinese, you might never find the hostel again, but other then that, its a good choice.

I stayed at the hostel for 7 nights and I liked it. It's good that they have this complimentary breakfast- it's better to go out and explore oce you have something in your stomach.The staff are very helpful with everything.

One of my favorite hostels, out of the 10+ I stayed at on my trip. Great staff and atmosphere. If traveling alone, or even in a group it is easy to find people to wander around with. Truly the atmosphere and "breakfast" are worth staying for.

The best hostel in Beijing due to It's central location, steaming atmosphere and great people. I met wonderful people every day not feeling lonely once. The staff is charming and speak both English and Chinese, and will gladly help you with any problems.
