Pros - The hostel is in a good location close to nightlife. Also, the hostel bar is always active and has a nice vibe with good drinks and friendly bartenders. Cons - There aren't enough bathrooms. There were only 2 functioning male toilets in the whole place while we stayed there (one was a Chinese squatter, the other a Western toilet). One girl I was traveling with said the one "working" female Western toilet was clogged a lot. Also, they started construction in our room and left a mess.

Great spot! I frequent Beijing roughly once a month and this is always a top choice for a decent stay. The atmosphere downstairs is great and the rooms are basic but comfortable. The dorm rooms have comfy mattresses (I prefer them a little firm) as do the single rooms. There are Western toilets on every floor and in the single rooms available should you need that instead of a squatter. Above all the staff keep me coming back. Alice et. al are excellent. Highly recommended

Staff were very helpful, plenty of western/European food and drink options nearby, close to tons of nightlife and shipping and relatively easy to get to the metro, minus a little walk. Clean and plentiful bathroom facilities and we'll priced tours

It is a good place and staff are willing to serve. I just have a complain that isnt close from a subway station so I've got to carry my baggage, but that's isn't a bad issue is others travel lighter than I.

I had a great time at the Local, I even came back a couple of times. Having the bar downstairs is really comfortable and it's the perfect place to meet lots of people. The Location of the hostel is also very good, it's only a few of stops with the subway to Tian'an men and also very easy to get to Summer palace. Oh, the Great wall tour is so fun though it a little bit far. ALL staff here is friendly and helpful and make my journey easier and impressive, I can only recommend staying there.

A cheap place to stay in the heart of SunLiTun area but the bathrooms were not very clean and wasn't very easy to find either.

I had booked two bedrooms in a 4 mixed dorm, but when we arrived they said that we would be in two separate rooms. We didn't want to do that, so we ended up having to pay for a more expensive private room, with was not worth the extra money. There were only two showers for the girls bathroom, which were always occupied. The sheets in the bedrooms were not very clean and every time I sat on my bed it bent at the middle (and I'm not that heavy). Also, the food was no good, it came out frozen.

Not sure about the plumbing - my room did not smell too fresh

I lived at the hostel before which was reserved by my friend. There are quite a lot difference than it used to be. The decoration there is amazing and staff are more friendly. I do recommend this hostel to people from all over the world and definitely live again when I in Beijing.

Overall I enjoyed my stay, mostly because of the interesting mix of people you get to meet at a hostel. Plus the common room is a cozy environment, although the music was a little too loud at night for conversation. Cleanliness is a little lacking. There were rotting fruits and empty milk cartons beside my bed head from the last guest who had stayed there. The directions on the website are very wrong. It sent me up and down the hole Sanlitun area.
