Great location, friendly staff, the terrace on the roof is splendid, 10 minutes walking to the subway The Hutong is great, lots of atmosphere. Rooms are nice, the pipe system is sometimes quite problematic though.
Stayed for two nights. On the evening we came, the owner told us there are no running water in the hostel because they have construction works on the street...we were really pissed off it was't mentioned on the website...so before you come, check they have water, so you won't be surprised after a long day on the roads.... Beside this unpleasant surprise everything was fine. Good enough value for money. Owner is really nice and helpful.
A really nice place, been there for three nights. The best location you can ask for. Our air conditioner didn't work at first- they fixed it within an hour. Our room was located next to the kitchen and it was smelly and noisy- they organized a new room as soon as they had one (hostel was full, so we got it the second day).The hostel owner offered us a free coffee and orange juice on the morning we left- that was a really nice gesture. p.s free transfer to the train station! Well done!
