Staff was very helpful and friendly. My only disappointment dealt with the morning breakfast; the bowl of muesli was good, but a small portion for 18RMB.

I've stayed at the Hanwood 3 times. Great times.
The hostel was clean, and had a great location. I met some interesting people from all around the world. My only disappointment was with staff friendliness. Other hostels I've stayed in, I've managed to strike up conversation and get to know the staff. When I tried at this location (in English and Chinese) most the staff members seemed uninterested and just walked away.
All in all, a great experience at the Peking Youth Hostel. I'm sorry to see its doors close today, but looking forward to staying at their sister hostel.
