This accommodation is long overdue some refurbishment. Bathroom tiles very mouldy and shower curtains need thrown out. Towels were changed daily but are very thin and need replaced. We had to ask for our bedding to be changed within our ten day stay. Laundry facilities here which was good and also a decent food menu on offer. Staff knowledge of English was fair. Rooms do not have Windows.

Thought it was a nice stay, location near subway was very good. Felt maybe it was a bit more expensive than should have been, but worth it.

Amazing hostel. Having lived in China for a year, I was amazed at how clean everything was. Western toilets, plenty of hit water. There were huge thunderstorms and no leaks! Staff are friendly and the food is good. I highly recommend this hostel. There is not a huge social area or events, but if you are just looking for a nice clean place to stay, this is your best bet.

Thank you for all satisfied with The Classic Courtyard and enjoy here. We will always continue to work hard.Thank you for your sincere recommendation and hope you come The Classic Courtyard again. promise 1 day free Europe Breakfast for you:) thanks again and hope to see you soon!!!


Right next to the Yonghegong Lama Temple and the Temple of Confucius and very close to Tienanmen Square and other Beijing tourist spots so the location is great. This hostel is quiet so if you're looking for a peaceful night's sleep in a clean room this is the place to go. The only downside is that you have to pay for breakfast, although they do serve a full English style which isn't very common in China.

Everything a hostel should be. Clean, Comfortable and easy enough to come and go when you please. Staff were excellent. Helped us book railway tickets online as the website was in mandarin.
