A very charming hostel. For a small fee you can get drinks and food. The staff is very helpful and very friendly. I also booked a wall tour which was very good.

This hostel is really well run, the staff are brilliant and the hostel is constantly being cleaned. Staying in an authentic courtyard house in a Hutong felt really authentic, and the food was great and cheap (Mainly Chinese food, plenty of vegetarian options). Mainly couples and older travellers staying there though, so vey quiet.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Facilities were clean but don't forget your shower shoes. Sleeping spaces may not be the best if you are a light sleeper because people have to walk through rooms to get to their beds and I was easily woken up by the shuffling of the early risers. The hostel is a little difficult to find at first but it's in a good location and public transportation is easy accessible. The interior design was cool but not a social hostel.

The hostel is in a really amazing and unique location. It's easy to walk everywhere. The common area has cool decorations and is comfortable to hang out in. The set up of the 8 person dorm is a little funny, but the beds are comfortable. It's not the most social place, but it's really great for exploring the city.

I had such a great time and experience staying here. The owner Rick makes exploring Beijing so much easier. Location is near the metro but there are some really cool things within walking distance as well. Food from the kitchen at the Hostel was very good and incredibly affordable. I would def stay here again

Fantastic hostel! The facilities were amazing and the staff were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. I was travelling alone, however met plenty of other young travellers to explore the city and have a few beers with! Highly recommend if staying in Beijing, will certainly be returning in the future!

Loved staying in this hostel in the middle of a very non-touristy hutong. About a ten minute walk to the metro and 20 minutes walk to the bell/drum tower area. The 8-bed dorm was really like a 4-bed dorm and two twin rooms put together so there was a lot of space! Met some awesome people staying there and the central courtyard in the hostel is very cute and nice for breakfast! Rick, the owner I think, was so kind and helpful!
