Staff were extremely helpful and informative. The location is truly excellent- I doubt there's a better place to stay in Beijing. The hostel had a very cool look to it. Wish we could have stayed longer.

This hostel had such a great atmosphere and this was mainly down to the staff, who were so friendly and welcoming. The courtyard was great for relaxing and getting to know other travellers in at the end of a long day of tourism in Beijing. The location is really good as it is only about a 15 ish minute walk to the Forbidden City and Beihai Park is even closer. Good tours to the Great Wall went from here and it included travel, nice lunch and breakfast for 330 yuan

Staff were so lovely and helpful! The hostel was really nice and the atmosphere was excellent too. I met so many people here and they were all really friendly. They also do food here and it's amazing! One meal could have fed me for 2 days!! The hostel is a little hidden when you first arrive, I got dropped in a taxi and had to walk down a random road. But it's a really safe area and easy to get around. I would definitely recommend!

Fabulous place to stay. Beautiful courtyard, really great staff. Single room was brilliant. Location near Jingshan Park is great. Stayed here twice, the first time 9 years ago, and without doubt stay here again. Loved it!

This hostel is fantastic. The location is near perfect, as you can walk to most of the major sights you'll want to visit in Beijing. It's also a very close to the subway. The Hutong nearby are all wonderful to walk through; lots of small restaurants. The staff also happen to be fantastic.

Phenomenal hostel right inside the hutong area just north of Jingshan Park. Clean, very friendly owner, lovely common room, and solid location. Once you figure out the hutong, Nanluoguxiang subway station (2 lines there) is a quick 10 minute walk away. All in all, one of the finest hostels I've stayed in. Only minor drawback is that breakfast is not included in the price, but City Walls has good food and resonable prices if you want to eat there.

Very friendly and helpful staff, a great open common room with plenty of power sockets and WiFi. The 8 person dorm is actually split into two floors so feels much more like two 4 beds which is great. They also organise tours and provide water, beer and a few snacks at reasonable prices plus the dumplings are awesome. Thanks for an unforgettable time in Beijing!

The hostel's location is excellent (though note that the Forbidden City aka Palace Museum) is only accessible from the Southern side). Drinks are very reasonably priced and the staff is very helpful.

Nice relaxed hostel, only a 10 mins walk from subway with very helpful staff. Location not asure good as advertised however, may be 10 mins walk from exit of forbidden city, however closer to 45 to walk round to the entrance. Don't stay here if you are looking to meet people, but if you want a nice rest then this hostel is ideal.
