  • Awesome hostel hidden away in a hutong in Beijing. Don't let that put you off - it is very close to the metro. Very laid back vibe, very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Free hot water is provided for tea/noodles, and there are decent common areas. Beers, soft drinks, coffee, breakfast and water all sold at reasonable prices (but not as cheap as the convenience store nearby!). Laundry is a bit steep at 18RMB/kg, but one pays for convenience. Highly recommended hostel!

  • A great little find. I had an initial scare when I arrived and the staff told me that there was no bed for me, but they shuffled things around for me and I ended up sleeping in the staff quarters, which turned out to be no big deal. Everything seemed very clean and orderly, and the staff was friendly and spoke great English.

  • I wish they could get better wifi, but everything else was great. Also, they no longer have free breakfast.

  • The hostel is placed really closed to the forbidden city and that is very good. there are lockers on the rooms but they are pretty small, I was traveling with a friend and stayed there 4 nights, when we checked in the key for one of the lockers was missing and, although we were promised to have it later, that didn't happen. there are 2 rooms for hanging out and they sell beer at the front desk but the rooms are a bit small.

  • Staff was friendly, location was in a hutong very close to everything touristy. Never more than ~5 stops on the metro from the Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen, etc They organize tours to the great wall which we did and enjoyed. Would definitely recommend this hostel.

Christmas doesn't get much better than wandering around a snow-coated market with a hot mulled wine in hand. The smell of roasted chestnuts and the twinkling lights will put even a Grinch into the Christmas spirit.
