  • Really sucks. The staff is really rude. I never imagined there could be nationality discrimination... For Chinese citizenship, u are not allowed to check in. However on the webpage, they do not write anything abt that, even though u paid the deposit. U can never argue with the staff. Really rude.

  • HAd a very good stay at Beijing Downtown Bpck. the staff id friendly and helpfull, and has excellent english skills. The only real bummer but not the hostels fault was the constructions site in the hutongs which made getting to the hostel a long walk, and sometimes a bit of a challenge to convince the costuction workers to let you through.

  • Rooms are a good size and very clean. Location is brilliant, on a 'hutong' in an historic neighborhood. Good food, services and public transport. We'd stay there again. We were travelling as a family and the place worked really well for us.

  • We had the best time here! Awesome staff, and met tons of new friends - amazong area in the hutongs, close to lots of things. Beijing was super cool! One of the best hostels we went to in China :) Make sure you eat at Grandma's Cretive Kitchen, it's in the hutongs, and there is a nice beer place close to that.
