    Daniela and staff were absolutely wonderful. I stayed in a tent and it was a cool experience. The common area was the most social I had seen in a hostel in China

    Found few new friends over there. Visited tourist spots together. Good environment to stay for 1-2 nights. Staffs were really happy minded and speak English. If you are solo traveler I will recommend to stay in such hostels.

    Nice hostel. Beds in tents were comfortable and clean. There is no air con in the hostel so room was quit hot at night but they do have fans There was a nice common area with sofas to hang out in. There was a kitchen with cooking facilities and hot and cold water. There was only 2 toilets and showers between everyone but I didn't really find I had to wait for it at anytime. Staff spoke English well and were helpful. I was able to leave my bag there after I had checked out and collect it later.

    The hostel was a pretty good place to stay other than the bathroom situation. Pros: - Located in a good area near nightlife activities - The staff were friendly - There was a common kitchen with free tea, water, and a hot plate for cooking, as well as snacks for cheap - There was a common room with a table, seating, and a TV Cons: - Common spaces and bathrooms were kept too hot (~27 C) for my taste - There were only 3 bathrooms total for about 30 people - The bathrooms were a bit unkept

    A pleasant surprise. The place is on 7th floor but not crunched - had a lofty spaciousness, homey with good vibes. Nice helpful people! Expensive for 8 bed dorm, but it was a big room with windows, a few beds were not bunks. Bathroom was outside the dorm, but just 1 and then 1 in common space. Could have been an issue but everyone shared well. I paid the higher price for location - a short walk to Dongzhimen (& airport express) or Dongsishitiao. I will stay again.

    Property advertised as private double room but actually a tent pitched indoors, among nine or so others, so more of a dorm. As such, the property was not value for money. Lights were kept on in the sleeping quarters until after midnight and the room was quite noisy (alarms, other guests talking loudly early in the morning). Only 2 bathrooms for 9 ‘private’ double rooms and 2 whole dorms. Staff were helpful and welcoming. This property is not value for money.
