Friendly and helpfull staff, clean rooms and also good food and hygienic. Very quiet location in Beijing. Not really, although it might be easier if there was a printer that could be used in the hotel, even if you'd have to pay for it.
Good facilities, excellent location (hutong), rooftop terrace. This was my second stay in the hostel and again, overall a positive one. Bikes for rent were rusty, crappy and old (even for Beijing standards) and one of them broke down after first 300m. The staff was all in all friendly, but can be deliberately ironic at times (laughing at you openly for having done something only a foreigner would do)- but ok, that didn't bother me a lot
perfect location,friendly and english speaking staff,rooms are not small,lots of nice local places to eat around.
the price and location of the hotel are very good some of the staff were not really nice though some of them are helpful.
We really enjoy our stay in that hostel and we very much appreciate having a goog cold drink in the evening in the terrace, outside in the 3rd floor, the eyes in the sky...
Many buses outside of the hutong can take you to many popular sites. Quite far from the subway station (around 10 mins). Those days I stayed were extremely cold, there was shortness on hot water to take shower. Room was cold, I have to wear 2 layers of clothes and sock before go to sleep.
the envirnoment is so comfortable and clean, though it's not really close to the center but which can make me feel very silent in the hostel. should provide free internat access.
So cheap and still very nice rooms, close to tiananmen square... In a nice hutong. That's great. Great breakfast, fruits, muesli, coffee... 24Hours check in! Nice people!! A bit hard to find for the taxidrivers, but if you have the tel.number, they will call and there is someone at the reception, answering the phone, always
Tourist information and access to tours was good and reasonably priced They did not have a family room for us the fist night so we ended up in a dorm room and they did not honor the price set on the web site but that's China.
