We enjoyed a lot our vacations at this hostel, we recommend it definitely. They serve different kind of breakfast just for more or less 30 RMB. Location is perfect, with a subway station just five minutes by walk and very close to the Forbidden City. The staff's attention is excellent and nice. They also can arrange different organized excursions, for example to the Great Wall. And a very important point is the cleanliness, which was perfect.

Hostel bedding was clean and smelled like bleach but you could definitely tell it had been well used (permanent stains and rips). Day staff was definitely friendlier than evening staff.

Good dorms, at least the four bed. Long beds. Good aircon. Wi-fi a bit up and down. Good breakfast choices. Cheap sodas and beer. Not much atmosphere, too much horking and spitting in the courtyard (by staff much of it). Bit far to the toilets at night after a few beers. ;-)

The location of this place was amazing. Five minutes from the Qianmen subway and Tiananmen Square. It was so easy to get around from here and at night the local side streets give you plenty to do and eat! The room was pretty spacious and you could run the much needed AC any hour of the day-not the case in some other hostels in China. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The bathrooms/showers might not look the greatest but give you everything you need. Great value!

I stayed for 3 nights in a mixed 4-people room. The room is air-conditioned but there is no locker inside. When I asked if I can store my big luggage in a safe storage room, the staff said to just put in in the room. On the last night, suddenly the staff told me that I had to change room, and all my stuffs were moved at one side and my bed was already occupied by other people. I also lost my slipper that night. But location is perfect and some staffs can speak English.

It was a great hostel to meet other people. The food was a good price and the breakfast was amazing. The location was near many big attractions.

Thanks for a good break - atmosphere a little 're-nao' for me though, would recommend for younger travellers:)

Qianmen hostel was my friend and my first place of accommodation, and I am so happy it was! Perfect location, lovely people and extremely affordable, all made the Qianmen hostel one of the most comfortable places to stay!

This hostel truly has a fantastic central location - just a couple of minutes walk from the metro station and The Forbidden City / Tiannamen Sq. Plenty of shops / bakeries nearby for breakfast or snacks. Room was spacious - we booked a twin but ended up with a triple with very good air con and WiFi. We had a shared bathroom which is down some very steap stairs and in a sort of out building - perfectly clean however but a bench or area to leave your clothes would be helpful! Recommended.

Lovely family run hostel with an authentic vibe in a very convenient location close to Tienanmen Square. We used the hostel for a trip to the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall, which I can recommend.

Excellent value with exceptional customer service from Lilly and Johnny and the rest of the cleaning and kitchen team. Large spotless room with continuous hot water essential after a day in Beijing’s atmospheric grime. For caffeine fiends, an excellent Italian coffee machine. The table in the court yard is a meeting place for travellers to share experinces and relax in this home style hostel. My young son and I will be back and recommend this haven in the chaos of Beijing.

Well, this wasn't my first time at the hostel. I always go back to this hostel when i'm in Beijing. The location is excellent, the center of town with a lot of restaurant to go to. The atmosphere is almost always good here, but you have to make that for yourself ! This time they were fixing some rooms, that didn't bother me but the workers always pissed on the toilet instead of in it , that was not nice !!! :) See you again next year !
