For the most part I loved Saga- the location was amazing and right by a ton of small restaurants and the metro. Also you get coupons for a free beer and a free coffee when you check in! We took their Mutianyu Great Wall trip and it was pretty good, no unnecessary stops or anything. The only thing I didn't like about this hostel was the wifi- it was absolutely horrible. It would connect enough to transmit messages on wechat or whatsapp, but web pages would never load and it won't allow VPN.

Underneath the bed is dusty. No pantry or kitchen. The toilet were horrible most of the time caused by the improper used by some guests. 4 shared bed room is quite small. A locker in the room can't properly open since obstruct by the big table. However the rest are just fine. Good staffs, perfect location and acceptable price. Food in the bar are marvelous.

The staff was very helpful and responsive to any questions or requests I made. The rooms could use some personal touches, they were quite plain. Good value for our stay.

It was a really good experience. Staff is nice, they organize tourism trip (great wall ...). It is located around 500meters to the first metro station. Very good value for money. You can rely on this hostel, you will be happy.

The location was pretty good, not very far from tourist places like Tian'an men and the Forbidden City and about a 10 minute walk to the subway, although to get most places you have to change subway lines. I thought the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and I really liked the atmosphere as well, particularly the nice restaurant/bar area where there are different food and drink specials everyday. The rooftop was also a cool place to chill at night. Definitely a good place to stay!

I arrived on a 72 hour TWOV travel permit and was pleasantly surprised that upon arrival I received a voucher for a free draft beer and a coffee from their Bar. Happy hour was great with 2 big glasses of beer for 20RMB. The 4 bed dorms were great with 4 separate beds rather than bunks with A bathroom and lockers for each bed. The staff spoke English quite well and the hostel was just 10min walk from Dengshikou subway. Plus the hostel was not far from Wangfujing st. I'd recommend staying here.

Good hostel to stay in BJ. 10 mins walk to Dengshikou metro station. Room is large and cleaned. A lot of restaurants nearby, 5 minutes walk to the supermarket. Would like to come and stay next time!

This hostel is just in the center location of traditional Peking City. I can walk to places like Forbidden City and Wangfujing Street without any transportation. Staffs are nice and friendly, they will provide useful information to anyone here. There is a bar in the 1st floor, you can drink there and make friends. The roof garden is awesome as well, which has a view of Peking courtyards.

The staff is amazing. They are so helpful and directed us where to go each day. The rooms are nice with beds instead of bunk beds. We stayed in a 4 person dorm and had a pleasant stay. Mayani, the waitress in the cafe, helped us with our booking to xian. As for location, there are cheap places to eat right bynthe hostel. The cafe was a bit over priced but convenient. Great place to meet other travelers.
