    The hostel is run by a family who are super lovely. I had trouble with my phone and they couldn’t have been more helpful. The dorms and common room are spacious. There is a communal atmosphere and everyone staying there was friendly. Short walk to the metro which is on a central line.

    Stayed in one of the tents for 6 nights. I was very happy with choosing this place and would stay here again: - Very welcoming, helpful, and friendly staff! - Large living room / common room: Creates a nice atmosphere and is good for socializing or having a rest after a long day out - Subway, airport shuttle, and bus station are in walking distance. If a taxi is required, the staff can help you to arrange/call a taxi - Plenty of food places and supermarket closeby

    This place makes me want to move here for a staycation! The staff and their family feels like family! It was such a lovely room, common room and service was beyond expectation. My mother got stranded in Beijing and the hostel didn’t just help they welcomed her back as family and are currently making sure she has a great time. 100% recommended for anyone who thinks they need a desperate break from their work life and plan on Bali. This place does more healing than months of therapy can. LOVE IT!

    A great place to stay! A unique experience to stay in a tent inside of a room but it makes a dorm room feel like your own personal room so great value for the money. They family here is very nice and welcoming and will make your stay in Beijing awesome!

    The staff was so friendly and helpful. They gave awesome directions and recommendations, even while out and about via wechat. Great atmosphere with lots of people from all over the world! I stayed in the girls' dorm, with convenient cubbies for toiletries and plenty of storage space. The only downside is that I got one of the only top bunks and then injured my foot in the night market, so it was hard to climb up. Wish there was another bathroom or two, but still manageable.

    Definitely the most homey hostel I’ve ever stayed at - staff were so warm and went above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome. Common areas were really nice. Wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else in Beijing.

    The hostel is really cute with a homely feel and cute decor, however the best thing about the Hostel is the staff. They are incredibly helpful and friendly and it is worth going to stay there just for this. The hostel is a 15 minute walk from the metro but can get to many great places to eat/go out by foot if you're happy to walk for 15/20 minutes. The only drawback about the hostel is that the rooms are different to how they are advertised and not enough bathrooms!

    Friendly staff interesting layout for sure. Only thing that really kind of sucks is the bathrooms there isn’t really enough. Nice common area as well.

    I booked the tent room, but the rents are not like teepee’s like in the photo. They’re just standard tents. There is one women bathroom, and one men’s. There is always a line. And it smells like mould. There are more people living there than tourists. But it’s big and welcoming. Also they don’t reply or receive emails. I sent them an email to say I had to change my dates, and they still charged me for the extra night.
