Very good hostel. Very good location. Do not think to take or not to take a room there. It's really worthing the money and the effort to go there. But be prepared to have shampoo, soap, they dont give sth like this. But in the rest, really nice hostel. Only the trip they offer are quite expensive, so you should find some other place to book a boat trip sth like this. But it's not their fault. The company they work with is quite expensive.
Well, the first day come, they tryed to rise the price. I rejected very calm their request by saying that I prefere to go and pay another hotel more expensive that give them the money. After that, we have seen two anoying cats, one of them pee and poo on our beds, so we waited them to change the bed sheets. Beside helpful staff and peaceful place, nothing good.
Very good hostel, clean, nice, staff very helpfull. The only thing, the water too cold for the winter. Bur for a traveller, very good location, because the hostel is near Tiananmen, Forbidden city and the old Beijing, and subway just 5 min. of walking. Very, very good.
