    This is a nice hostel in a hutong area of Beijing. It is a little far from public transport (more than 1km from the metro) which you will need to get downtown, but it's definitely walkable if you don't have heavy luggage. The staff does not really speak English. This is perfect for me because I'm learning Mandarin, but might not be for you. Nonetheless they are extremely polite and amiable. They went above and beyond to help me with some phone issues I was having.

    A great hostel that gives you a nice view of China / Beijing. I'm sure it's not the last time I stayed there. It's clean, has a nice roof terrace and is really central.

    Very nice area, you really get a feel for the Hutong way of living. I loved the atmosphere, everyone were really nice, clean. I was however surprised there was no kitchen, or any place to prepare or store your own food. All other hostels I've ever stayed at has had that facility.

    Very nice place to stay, the top deck with fairy lights provided a nice atmosphere at night. We stayed in a private twin room. Beds were very comfortable and amenities were decent. Could be closer to the centre. Closest subway is 20min walk and Hutong area 50min walk. Only issue we had was with the staff. Most of the staff were extremely friendly, although they did not have much English (which we didn't expect them to have). However, two of the staff members were very rude and very unhelpful.

    It's near the financial district, but is very difficult to find on the map! Luckily, the staff was able to help me find the location. The facility itself is in a residential area, about a 15-20 min walk away from the metro station. The rooftop area is cute, but the place is a little shabby. However, the staff was incredible, and I booked a great Great Wall tour through them. Overall, a nice area to stay, but very difficult to find.

    I stayed at Templeside for two nights. There were some good things and some bad. The location was quite peaceful and definitely gives a sense of the Hutong neighborhood. The only bad thing about this is it was INCREDIBLY hard to find. It is not located where the map says it is and the directions on the Hostelworld site are very vague. Definitely get directions first. The room I stayed in was a little on the plain or run down side. This hostel has a ton of potential but could be more homey.

    The location in the Hutong was lovely. The proprietors were somewhat difficult to contact. I sent several emails that were unanswered. However, they were very hospitable when we did arrive. We arrived late in the evening and they were very accommodating. The location was hard to find at night though,

    We enjoyed our stay, but the hostel was very different to how it was advertised. It has not been well maintained since photos were taken. Rooms were run down and dirty, lockers broken, air conditioning leaked etc. The rooftop terrace is used as a laundry room with a hazardous ladder to get up there..! Once we were used to the conditions, it was a good base to sleep and was, but not much atmosphere and staff had limited local knowledge. Would choose differently next time.

    We arrived at the hostel, and when we nicely asked to cancel one night, the manager was very angry and screamed on us! It was very scary, and we just took our stuff and ran away. Don't go there.
