  • The West Yard hostel extension is in a secure area, but the hutong's alleyways are not well-lit, especially the one that connects to the main road Xinjiekuo. At night, walking back to the hostel from subway stations, Xinjiekuo or Ping'Anli, the ten-minute or so walk may well be in ill-lit surroundings, when shops have closed. It was daunting, at first, though I got used to it after my first night. The reason for the GOOD rating instead of Excellent. Kudos to Mrs. Lindy Guo and staff. Xie xie.

  • Amazing little place, and what really made the experience better was the staff. Very attentive. Metro station super close and very central

  • I was injured and had to stay longer than expected. The staff were wonderful and worked to ensure I have always had a bed.

  • Very cute ambiance - the lobby is full of fish! It can be a little bit tough to find if you're new to China, but the wifi works well and the staff is pretty helpful. I do wish there were a little more privacy in the dorm beds (they have no curtains) but I had a pleasant stay.
