The staff was the best! Awesome at giving directions and always super helpful! Lots of good tips on things to do and things to steer clear of. Great prices on food and drink. Worth every penny. Only complaint...the shower drain was slow. Felt gross even with sandals on :( And don't stay here if you are looking to party. The common area super chill.

I have stayed at a boat-load of hostels over the years, and this one is as good as it gets. Super staff. Easy, yet super quiet location. Clean bathrooms with great water pressure and super hot water. Marvelous bed with high-thread count sheets. Awesome common area...perhaps one of the best I have EVER seen. Delicious inexpensive food. And, are you ready...4 Yuan/$0.65 USD 500ml beers. Heck, why ever leave the hostel. Thanks Rick and Rachel...keep up the sensational work.

Good friendly Hostel. Very helpful man on reception. 10 out of 10 for his attitude. Only one thing , the showers could be better, although the water was hot, which is better than some hostels! Also the WiFi is not good but I think this is a China wide problem. Overall for the price, this Hostel is fantastic. Cheers.

This is the first hostel that I've stayed in and I was extremely impressed. Though it is a bit hard to find at first (you go further up the alley and turn), it is so close to the Forbidden City and Tianamen Square, as well as popular places to eat and shop. Rick, the owner, was so wonderful. He gave us excellent directions, a map, and provided a sheet that had thorough information for local attractions with Chinese translations and prices. Overall, wonderful facilities and fabulous staff.

This was one of the best hostel experiences I had! The tipstips staff gave about the city were invaluable and some of them are key but you would never would know to ask yourself.

Really amazing experience. The hostel is in a traditional hutong and let's one experience living in an authentic environment. The staff is super knowledgable + friendly and location is really safe. Wonderful overall stay.

Cool hostel walking distance to Forbidden Palace & Square. Owners really helpful and friendly. The place is very traditional in a safe hutong traditional neighbourhood. The owners are lovely and helpful. It was very quiet when I was there so not social, but plenty of room to be social when busy. Would stay again if back in town.

We had an excellent stay in Beijing and the staff at City Walls was one of the main reasons for this. They were helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We would not hesitate to recommend City Walls for your stay in one of the world's most interesting cities!

I really enjoyed my four day stay at the City Walls. The staff is really warm and friendly. The hostel provides very clear and valuable advice on visiting the city. Great experience, I strongly recommend visiting City Walls.

Great Hostel, very good location, friendly and helpful staff, clean amenities, reasonably priced beer and water available at the hostel, laundry by weight but can take longer since they dry it open air, staying at this Hutong felt very cozy, would definitely stay there again!

I would really recommend this hostel. Great location, very helpful staff and a pleasant vibe. No major complaints, in fact can't think of any really at all.

From the beginning to the end of my trip the personal was always nice and helpful. The bed was really comfortable and clean. The location and the decoration of this place make you get more immerse into chinese culture. I will totally stay there next time I travel to Beijing. Good friends and good place, I cannot ask for more. Thank you so much.
