  • Staff provided appalling customer service. We were refunded for our order after waiting for an hour for the pizza that never showed up. The staff did not appear to have any remorse over their service lapse. Their attitude towards customer service after such a mistake was unforgivable. Instead of apologizing for their mistake the waitresses only pointed the blame on us for willingly waiting for the pizza. Overall the service staff were a disappointment. I do not recommend this Hostel to anyone.

  • I stay at Sanlitun Hostel every time I travel to Beijing. The location is great, close to the embassy district as well as the popular shopping areas. The subway is close by, so it's easy to get around. The staff is great, they all speak English very well, and are happy to help you find your way around Beijing. When I stayed there last month, I had a great experience once again. I can remember Carine was great. She helped me with all my questions and is incredibly friendly and helpful.

  • I had a great time staying here! People are fun and the staff is really friendly and helpful. They could make the rooms a bit more sound proof as some of the guest does not respect the "keep silent" signs and the doors are not that sealed when closed. All in all, thanks for a great stay!

  • I've been staying here for quite many times. Great location in the heart of the city. Bars, clubs, restaurants and malls are easily accessible. Quite far from any subway station though. The staff is really nice and helpful and the atmosphere is always great! Don't go to dorms during weekends if you wanna sleep. People who spend their weekends clubbing in Sanlitun spend their nights in here and it's quite noisy sometimes.

  • Enjoyed my stayed at Sanlitun Hostel Beijing! staffs was friendly and dorms was modern with lockers and spaces to store your valuable. Pillows & duvet were confortable, the A/C not too noisy. People there where respectful... each bed get a reading light. The only cons is that you have to give 100Yuans as a key deposit, you get back to pay your taxo to airport!
