This hostel is clean and comfortable with a relaxed atmosphere. The staff are very friendly, helpful and speak good english. The price for rooms is good, but I would advise anyone staying there that extras are costly (35yuan for towel hire). The food is tasty and worth the extra $, in my opinion. I was feeling homesick, so being able to have good western food was nice. The bathrooms were clean by hostel standards and the beds were comfortable and warm. p.s I loved the Christmas decos!

Sanlitun Hostel is in a great area surrounding the Embassy District in Chaoyang Beijing. The staff are friendly and have great English to help with whatever you need. Easy walk to sanlitun restaurant and bar district. The hostel has a nice lounge/ social area with great coffee. Overall, a fantastic place for your short stay in Beijing.

A large hostel which appears to be well run. The bar/communal area is good except for the inflated prices on food and drink. It is however a nice place to relax. Some great cheap Sichuan restaurants on the doorstep and many bars close by. The six person dorms are small and lack storage. You need your own padlock for your security. Staff all tip top!

This hostel is well located not far from the centre of Beijing. The restaurant is really good and propose great breakfast for a good price. The dorms were clean, warm and comfortable. The bathroom needed a bit more cleaning but was ok. People working in the hostel were very friendly and helpful. Warm and cosy atmosphere in the common room on the fist floor.

Manager refused me an electric fan or aircon. On first getting to room, was shocked it didn't have wi-fi, just wired. Struggled for a whole day until I found own solution. Shower cold one time but all other times hot and powerful. Some staff very good - Candy helped me arrange a taxi and even pulled some luggage out to the front driveway. Some noisy people in other rooms, yahooing at half four in the morning - quick call to reception and guy there sorted it out. Once settled in, everything good.

This is a great hostel. The reception staff are very friendly and professional (this is almost unheard of in China; I live in China), the restaurant is good, the rooms are large and airy, and its a few minutes walk from the Sanlitun bar area and the Gongti clubbing street. I would stay here again, no problem!

It was a nice stay, just an average hostel. The shower area was quite dirty, but it was ok for a few nights. The price we paid was much more than some people. Some other people paid rates of 30/35 RMB a night. While we booked far in advance and paid 60 RMB.

the hostel is well located close to the sanlitun party area. the rooms and bathrooms are clean and the staff is very friendly and helpfull. the prieces for the dorm are very cheap but everything else in the hostel is a little bit expensive. no wifi in the rooms but this forces the people to hang out in the community area, which is very nice an comfortable. it very good to meet people!

My taxi to the airport cost far too much, it only took 20 mins when I was told it would take 45 minutes. 150 RMB is way too much!Apart from that I really enjoyed my stay with the hostel.
