This is a great hostel and definitely the place to stay if you want to party in Beijing. Great location and staff, and meeting fellow travelers is easy. I stayed in the dorms and also a private room and they were very clean and comfortable. My only criticism would be that the public and private bathrooms smell pretty bad all the time, even when "unused". Seems to be smells wafting up through the drains. Not sure what the hostel could do about this, but it was really the only downside of my stay.

The location is great to go out in Sanlitun but a bit far from the metro station. There is a nice outside area and the dorms are good value for money.

It'd be great if the floor under the beds are cleaned from time to time, as it is, a layer of dust occupy that space, and since travelers usually put their bags there...well, you can imagine what happens:)

Everything was fantastic except the stench in the women's bathrooms.

A good hostel for China, inexpensive and location is great for markets, restaurants, tube and airport access. The rooms are large and so are the common area showers. The staff are a light quiet but will help. Lounge/restaurant is a nice relaxing area and Alice will always have a smile! Food is expensive but very nice.

Nice staff and clean rooms. Be careful when you order one of their set breakfasts- it takes a long time! But you can order scrambled eggs and toast for less than 10rmb- it's not on the menu but it's way better than any of the other breakfast options. Good bar at night and great place to meet people! Overall really nice base in beijing

Wifi only in lobby and super slow. Location is good though if you like the bars and partying. Not the cleanest of places but good value and livable.

Loved my stay there. The hostel was clean, staff were friendly and only a 10 min walk to subway which was super easy to use. Also very close to the night life and a safe walk back from all the clubs in the area.

The staff at the hostel were absolutely wonderful! They made our stay there so easy and enjoyable! The food was great, and the tour to the wall was outstanding. Also, when we need transport to the airport and train station, they made that easy as well. Wonderful hostel!!

The Internet does not work when there are a lot of people in the common area. Perhaps you should buy an internet router meant for high traffic. The common area is also too small and doesn't encourage interaction with others.

I had a blast staying at Sanlitun. The staff was very kind and helpful, and the lounge/bar/dining area was a great place to hang out. I ended up making friends in town and we'd just hang in Sanlitun's bar area and have beers there instead of actually going out. It was a very clean hostel compared to many others I've stayed in too. Good times.
