The hostel lobby/chill-out area was nice.However,the female dorm was dirty and I killed 2 baby roaches upon my arrival.The cubicle style toilet and shower was generally 'clean' & if someone next to you is having a shower,the water in your shower cubicle will trinkle down slowly.The female staff was very nice & friendly but the male staff could try to at least be more friendly.I guess this hostel would be perfect for someone who just needs a place to sleep & mingle with international guests.

A relatively nice place to stay, relatively close to a subway stop and close to food and restaurants. I would recommend the pub adjacent to the main reception/lounge area of the hostel. The owner Mr Hou brews his own beer and has 4 distinct flavours currently. They all taste better than the conventional Chinese made beers like Tsingdao or Yanjing. The pub is just on the right as one enters the courtyard.

beijing west information online not accurate. Line 9 one stop, not as printed line 2.... also looking for the Construction Bank ATM is not accurate, it's not the Construction bank but is the only ATM. There are 4 exits to bexingiao station. have your back to the ATM door and walk forward till you get to the road. Turn Left nd walk down that road, lots of restraunts. Cross over and you are looking for a little alleyway (on your right) about 4 min room was freezing, coffee was great

Had 2 great nights of sleep here - beds are very comfortable, and the temperature was perfect to sleep in despite being in Winter. Only things missing are - a good common area (currently just 2 couches, with not much going on, but maybe was because its winter and the bar area wasnt open) - a more welcoming and helpful reception staff However, overall, a good place to have a good nights sleep in a great location in the exciting Hutongs

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.

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.
