Hostelworld says

Chinese Box Courtyard Hostel was rated the best in China at the 2011 Hoscars and it's not difficult to see why. They serve free dinners three times a week plus tea ceremonies and calligraphy classes on the weekends. We like that there's also free breakfast, free games and free guidebooks to borrow. The friendly staff are helpful for booking tours throughout China. This hostel is located in central Beijing, just five minutes from Xisi metro station.

    Super neat location, solid hutong vibe. Had I not had plans w/ others already, I felt it was a good space to meet people in. 1st time w/ cubby-style beds - novel & seemed to allow better air circulation - nice! Overall, I'd recommend it ~

    A great place to stay for our short time in Beijing. The facility was small, clean and had a great common area. The staff were extremely helpful with signing us up for a tour to the Great Wall. Only complaint is that it was a little far from the activities we did in the city. I wish we could have stayed longer!

    Overall it's a nice hostel to stay at. It's more of quiet place than one made for parties. The staff was willing to help us even with the language barrier. The breakfast is pretty good too! Thank you!

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Short walk to the metro, which is easy to use and navigate. There were only two toilets and two showers, but didn't have have to wait in line during my stay. The main gate requires an access card, so pretty secure. Dorm room has small lockers for valuables. The dorms could use some freshening, maybe an automatic air freshener.

Chinese Box Courtyard Hostel says

I think we're in the perfect location. Guests can visit the Forbidden City, Beihai Park, Houhai Bar Street, and White Pagoda Temple within half an hour's walk. I recommend visiting some interesting places preferred by locals, such as Tea Street and Zhong Guan Cun, also known as Beijing's 'Silicon Valley'.
In my opinion, one of our most unique features is our social dinners. Every week we organize BBQs on Mondays, family dinners on Wednesdays and dumpling parties on Fridays. All guests like learning how to make the traditional Chinese dumpling. Each afternoon, we always do tea ceremony for guests and introduce some local Chinese culture. Leoson, Owner
