Nice place to stay with a lovely golden retriever and good staffs. I recommend it especially for Trans-Siberia Railway travelers. A young guy in reception was really helpful. He gave us lots of so neat and useful information about how to cost cheaper from Beijing to Mongolia and Russia by international train and how to go around Lake Baikal's surrounding areas such as Irkutsk. Just because a few months ago he experienced the things I would like to do as well. I am really appreciate.

We were staying in double ensuite room, and liked it very much - nice and stylish furniture, nice washroom, warm weather inside. The atmosphere is wonderfull, the location - in a very romantic street, you feel like living among Chinese, and very close - famous food street Guijie. The staff was very helpfull to us (let us to call by phone). In a word, I would like to stay in this hostel, when next time visit Beijing.

Dear guest,thank you for your review,maybe there was some misunderstanding,I think as long as you asked the receptionist, they must know it or they can check for you to make it sure.Anyway,you are always welcome to our hotel again.

was in room 118. was a four bedroom. the room was great and had best wifi strength than other 4bedroom rooms. the nearest bathroom is great but chilly during winter. but i could use the other shower facilities. very convenient to get to thesubway and restraunts. could use a common kitchen...doesnt have one but a small cafe and some food is provided. alla in all i would say, excellent. esp for the price.

Nothing special about the hostel, but a good clean bed and clean bathrooms. The location is very close to the metro and the airport link, which was very convenient. It worked perfectly for our short stay!

We had a great time in the hostel. The subwaystation is nearby. So you can reach all the sighseeing places easily. The staff speaks basic english, so they can't help you with everyting, but they try to help you the best. The room and the facilities were OK. For the price we have payed, you can't say anything against the hostel!

Good location close to the subway station and the Lama Temple. Beautiful place, beautiful garden, it s not in the city center but all the interesting places to see in Beijing can be easily reached by bus or the subway. The hostel is quite "hidden" in a hutong but thanks to the informations given by the staff it s easy to find.

A nice, quiet hostel with an inviting courtyard right in the middle of the hutong's. Great atmosphere and a good location near the Lama Temple. Plenty of restaurant options nearby, comfortable beds, hot showers. Would stay again.

Location is very good, close to the subway and Drum Tower. The place is wide and pretty cosy, with a nice yard to hang around. And the price is good for Beijing.

The bathroom was really clean, and if you don't watch at the bedroom's wall the room was also clean. The staff is not friendly at all. Each time I had a question I felt like I was bother them.

There is a nice doggy in the hostel. Everybody loves the dog named Shishi.

Fine for a few nights. Great courtyard. Staff are friendly enough. Annoying that the lockers need a one Yuan coin everytime you lock them. Over priced food, but why eat in the hostel when there are so many Huton cafés right next door. I'd stay again.

The room had a weird smell when we went in. After the air was one it cleared out though.

Great hostel! Nice location, good facilities and amazing staff. Will definitely stay in Ming Courtyard next time when I go to Beijing!


66%

The Ming Courtyard is definitely off the main tourist track. The subway is easy to navigate so for the price, the location is a compromise we were willing to make. As a whole the staff weren't particularly friendly, the premises weren't very clean and the facilities were basic. We enjoyed out stay all the same. You definitely get what you pay for.

Staff could speak only basic English, no lockers inside the room and anyway you have to pay 1yuan EVERY time you open one (I know is very little but it was annoying, especially if you forgot something and had to open it again), the dorm was large but somehow lacked any sort of ventilation so it could get very warm.... the location is great though and the courtyard is a nice place to hang out with other travelers.

This place is cheap but quite ok. I stayed in a 12 bed room which was a little far from the bathrooms but not a big problem. Would probably go back again.
