Hostelworld says

Fly By Knight Courtyard Hostel is a clean, pet-friendly, stylish and traditionally-styled hostel with hot showers, free hearty breakfasts, air conditioning and comfy beds. Hostelworld guests frequently praise the staff, saying they're 'very friendly and welcoming and happy to give advice about arranging tours, getting around, where to eat, etc'. We particularly like that this hostel has martial arts practice areas and equipment as well as the occasional free onsite kung fu lessons.

Property Description

Fly by Knight has 3 top quality guesthouses in 3 popular cities: Beijing, Datong and Pingyao. if you book one of the location with us, you can get a 10% off for the other two places, but you will have to make direct booking with us to get the discount. make sure to email us right after you make the first booking on-line(you will get our email right after confirmed booking), and our staff will lock your room for your preferred room type immediately.

Fly by Knight Courtyard Hostel is a beautifully renovated, traditional Chinese courtyard house. We are located in the heart of Beijing City, with easy access to public transportation such as the subway (Dong si station) and many major city bus routes.

We provide clean beds, clean bathrooms and clean common areas.

We are located in Hutong, one of the most famous government-preserved areas. The surrounding houses are all occupied by local Beijing residents.

We understand how important it is to start your day with a good meal; therefore, our private room guests get a free set of western breakfast in the morning (bacon, sausage, hash browns, eggs and toast).

Every staff member is fully trained in helping travelers and they speak both fluent English and Chinese.

Our hostel was founded by a traveler whose passion for martial arts brought him to China to broaden his experience. If you have come to China to study martial arts and need assistance, let us know and we will be more than happy to help. We also provide practice areas and equipment.

We respect all artists. If you are any type of artist, a martial artist, a painter, a singer, a performer, a poet, a writer, etc… let us know because we would love to exchange your talents for accommodation! This benefit applies to dorm users.

Everyone here loves animals, so bring your pets dogs, cats, even polar bears (if you have the right license). Just make sure you email us first so we can make preparations for your little guy (or big guy).

We also offer very low-priced international calls, but if you need to call your mommy, we will let you call for free. We know you must miss your mommy!

We believe in travelling Eco-friendly. Please bring your own personal hygiene products such as tooth brushes. We don't provide any one-time-use products. We do offer market-priced products so, if purchased, please re-use them.

Our hostel provides low prices, but not at any price. We don't offer unfair trade products or food. We pay our taxes and we monitor our quality. View House Rules

    This hotel/hostel ticked all the boxes to experience a true Chinese courtyard. The staff were excellent, breakfast was fantastic and the rooms much nicer than the photos suggest. It is a bit of a walk from the main road to access it but that gives you a true feel of the Chinese courtyard lifestyle. I’d highly recommend this place and would have loved to stay longer than one night!

    I absolutely loved my stay here! I had issues with Airbnb so I had to book a spot at Fly by Knight Courtyard. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, they made breakfast fresh every morning, and helped us with our luggage. The building itself is gorgeous and peaceful. I highly recommend this Hutong. Can’t wait till I get to come back again!

    Unique and off the beaten path. At the back of the Hutong this place takes a little bit of extra walking each day but the quiet and quaintness makes it worth it. The proprietor has excellent taste in background music and ambiance. The common area is comfortable and appealing. We don’t often mingle with the other travelers but this room made us so comfortable it was easy to sit and talk. The breakfasts were included and the familiar tastes were unexpected!

    Overall, an excellent, atmospheric stay. Nice common area, and the tap for filtered water was very convenient. The room lovely and the bed was very comfortable, though sometimes a faint musty smell suggests they have been let down by whoever installed the plumbing.

    Lovely courtyard! A little less mishmash in yhe interior design would benefit the style of the place example: modern plastic tables and chairs don't fit in a beautiful old my opinion. A signpost by the road would really help! The taxi-driver had to ask around in the neighbourhood to find the entrance, there was no sign. Best thing aboit the place: All Members of the Staff were super-nice and helpful!

Beijing Fly by Knight Courtyard says

In my opinion, what separates us from the competition is our quality of service, quality of comfort, and promotion of culture. All of our staff have travelled throughout China and we know how difficult and tiring it can be at times. That's why we want every guest to be able to relax and rejuvenate their bodies upon arrival. To accomplish this, we only provide the best hotel-quality amenities - comfortable mattresses and pillows, high pressure hot water showers, and numerous other comforts you may miss from home. Not only that but you can also participate in or watch our free weekend kung fu classes, held right here in our main courtyard.
We're located inside a government-preserved hutong, away from all the noise of busy Beijing, which ensures you will get a great night\'s sleep. Our guests rave about feeling refreshed and relaxed each and every morning! Daniel, Owner
