The private rooms had smelly bathroom, we had to open the window during the winter time to air out the room. It was spacier compare to the dorms. The lounge area had chairs and tv, nothing much, kitchen was not open, public bathroom on the first floor was dirty. Third floor had cleaner public bathrooms. Dorms are so small, there is about three feet of space between the beds. They have boots for sale, and green communist coats to rent.
The people working at the cafe/bar was really nice. The private room was on the small side. But there was wifi in the room, very slow wifi. They told me it was an 30 min walk from Tiananmen square but more like one hour. There is a morning market right outside that sells fruits and breakfast stuff that is cheap. It is a few train stops away from most of the famous sights in Beijing. It was hard to get a taxi due to the address being a small street, so if you take a taxi, find the major roads.
We went in January and most of the shops in the old city was closed. Everyone left due to the lack of tourist. The locks on the room was weird, if you leave, it is lock from the outside and the person on the inside is lock in. If the person on the inside lock it, your key can not open the door and you will have to wake them up. They have a cheap 10rmb breakfast with questionable food. The room is very clean and the bathroom does not smell. One of the cutest and best room hostel we stay in.
The bathroom smelled awful, we had to leave the window open at night time and the fan on. The stuff were nice and helpful and we went to the Muslim quarter every night

There is a market near the hostel that sells meat, fruit, vegetables, and breakfast items. One guy makes this huge crepe and puts youtiao or rectangle fried thing , cilantro, egg, and other spices on it. He wraps it and cuts it in half. The best thing I have even eaten in China. I tried it in other cities, and no one can match him. So please go try it, you won't regret it. It was so cheap as well. The hostel's private rooms were really nice and spacious. It also had a hairdryer in the room.
