We stayed five nights and whilst we did have clean towels every day, despite asking for the room to be made up, the bedding wasn't changed once and the bathroom wasn't cleaned either during our stay. There was also no soap provided in our bathroom. The staff were friendly and quite helpful and the social area was always busy so it was very sociable. Cheap drinks and good food as well.


Just needed a place to crash for one night while waiting for a train back to my city, and this was perfect. It's on the same subway line as Beijing Railway Station, and it's located in an area that has a lot of Western conveniences (like a French bakery just out the back gate). The staff are awesome - they're flexible, great English speakers, and good at solving problems. The area is lively and has a lot of nightlife. Food from the hostel's bar/restaurant is normal-expensive but good.


shower head needs to be replaced, staff not at front desk in the morning, had to wait for 15 min and call the hostel phone number until I could check out (had to go to the airport), overpriced laundry service

Quite clean and the reception staff is really helpful.


Lovely and very helpful staff, nice atmosphere. Kitchen is a little bit slow. I would definitely recommend it!


I wish Wi-fi is available at the rooms each

Smug attitude at times from a few of the staff, but most of the time they were very helpful. The location is great for walking to the clubs down the street. There is a mall next store and convenience stores outside. The lounge area isn't really so inviting and you are not allowed to bring your own drinks into the nice bar area downstairs


Good place for budget travelling. Great location, walking distance to many bars, pubs, restaurants etc. Wasn't the biggest fan for the bathroom though. The one close to my room wasnt cleaned often. You see hairs stuck in the sink and that was that. On my staying i couldnt really find people to chat to, everyone seems a bit of minding too much own business.
