This hostel is a perfect choice for backpackers who want to fully enjoy their stay in Beijing. It is very conveniently located at 5 minutes walking distance from Nanluoguxiang metro station along the homonymous street which is one of the most beautiful alleys in the city and a very busy street food spot at night. The staff is kind and helpful, and speaks good English. The dorms are spacious and clean, with nice showers and toilets. Its pretty expensive compared to other hostels in China, but the atmosphere and the location are really fantastic!
Great location! Chic exterior!”
Actually inside a chic restaurant. Right in the middle of Nanluoguxiang which is a trendy hutong that opens till quite late. Also somewhat near pubs at beihai. Possible to walk to Jingshan park. Very near subway. Staff is nice as help me charge batteries when I couldn't check in yet (cos too early). My upper bunk bed is a little shaky.
Nice hostel but need to take care a little bit about the bathroom cleanliness ”
This hostel is located in a strategic place but it is not easy to spot it especially during the night time. Unable to access to the Wifi when you are in the room. The staffs are friendly and helpful. Overall OK except for the shared bathroom due to high capacity of usage. Highly recommended.
The hostel is located along Nan Luo Guxiang a few blocks away from the metro station and along a commercial hutong and adjacent to its own café - which is convenient as all your needs (e.g. food, transportation, shops) are within reach. A bit pricey compared to other hostels but the facilities were clean and okay. Beds are comfortable but I wish there'd be less of us (e.g. 4-6 persons) in a dorm room. Also the bathrooms and toilets are a wee bit small but they're fine. Good location and facilities overall.
great location, beautiful flowers and roof garden”
in the middle of a trendy shopping district, close to metro and Back Bay area which is fun for nighttime. easy walk to forbidden city. restaurant downstairs is awesome with organic natural ingredients. rooftop deck with cafe. nice place
A really nice hostel in a great area. Situated in the hutongs, a 5 minute walk away from the subway. Plenty of restaurants and shops around. The whole place is beautifully decorated with flowers, and is very clean. Staff were friendly. Each bed has a lamp and socket, lap a locker too. It's a little pricey for a hostel, but you get what you pay for. Breakfast not including included but tou a small discount in their cafe. Water takes awhile to heat up but be patient. Towels can be hired for 10cny, shower gel and shampoo not provided.
Great location and friendly staff”
The hostel location was really easy to find, just a few minutes from the exit E of Nanluoguxiang. And its a great place if you like to wander around hutongs as there's plenty around. There's also a free walking tour which meets at exit E (this is something separate you have to book). Places such as Beihai, Houhai, Jingshan Park are within walking distance. Only downside is Nanluoguxiang gets really crowded close to weekends n on weekends. But don't worry, the hostel is still very peaceful
Great location, friendly staff, clean place!”
Great hostel, right in the middle of the action on nanluoguxiang (but still quiet when inside). Clean white dorms, friendly staff with good English who can help with wall trips etc. lovely cafe downstairs which is also a florist so full of flowers and plants. Definitely recommend. Close to subway so easy to get around.
Nice Design Hostel”
I stayed at this hotel based on friend recommendation. It is an Hostel actually for backpackers. There is no TV in the room. Price are reasonable and it is located near a walking shopping street. the MRT station also not far from the hostel. The hostel was nicely design with an attached restaurant which nice decoration. The counter staffs are very helpful, they will help you in everything you need, booking of tour, taxi, and etc….
Better than my stay at another airbnb house”
Very clean, superb location in South Lou Alley. Very nice atmosphere that they use many fresh & dried flowers to decorate the whole hostel. I had another stay at another airbnb house in my trip, I would say this hostel is even cleaner than that airbnb house. highly recommend!
The staff here are lovely, and it's easy to get stuff like laundry done that can be a nightmare elsewhere. The decor of the communal areas is very nice. It's also only a short walk from a metro station. However, it's in a super touristy area (renovated hutong) and on weekends it's hard to even get down the street! Also, I'm not sure what happened with the room but mine was NOTHING like the light and airy, 32-sqm dorm in the photos! It was claustrophobic with almost no natural light. Despite how sweet the staff are, I think this place is way overpriced for a hostel.
Hard to find location, it’s around the corner from the attached cafe that is visible from the bigger hutong. Taxis can’t access the hutong during the day (or night), so you must meet your taxi by Nanluogu station. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Internet is spotty in the rooms. A very comfortable hostel stay on the whole.
hello Elena, very happy to see you liked our hostel, that's the right reason we keep the hostel neat and beautiful everyday, our small Hutong is more like a neighbor so the government want it have peace, sorry about that.
Don't expect too much! ”
It's my 2nd time in this hotel. The 1st one i didn't get to stay long just an overnyt so i hadn't explore the hotel. The good things about the hotel is 1) staff at lobby speaks english. We booked 2 private rooms. We arrived early at 12:30pm & good thing the 1room was already ready for us. You will need to deposit 100 RMB for the key & it will be returned to u upon checking out. 2) the hotel is just a few mins from nanluoguxiang station exit E. You will see the hotel at the left but it's their restaurant so u have to enter on the side door which doesn't look like a hotel door. Looks like a house gate with no big sign of hotel's name. 3) It's along the street where lots of shopping and eating can be done. Meanwhile the negative of this hotel is that 1) It doesn't have an elevator so if u have an xl luggage like ours, u will have to carry it on the stairs which is narrow and about 20 steps i think, & the staff won't help you. 2) don't expect much from the room. It doesn't have a light ceiling so the only light will be coming from the big window and the study lamps on each table. The only free that we get was 2 bottles of water with electric heater for hot water. There are no free soaps or shampoos in the bathroom. With free tissues some new some already used i think bec it's already thin. The free slippers are rubber which are already in the room so i think the previous visitor also used it. No tv. 3) NO WIFI! Believe me! The first time 2yrs ago, i remember they had a wifi on the room. But as of today, the hotel staff said that the wifi is unstable. So no wifi on the room. My god! Good thing i have my own wifi from the PH. Even in their restaurant the wifi is unstable. I tell you, u won't be able to connect! 4) The hotel staffs are unfriendly. Due to our numerous luggage & handcarry we opted to get their car service for airport for 250 RMB. Our flight is at 2am. At first we told that the time we'll depart is 9am. Then after a while, we told if it can be revised
A very ideal place for a traveller. ”
The hostel is in a center of a hutong and is a walking distance from a metro line which makes it easier to navigate around the city.
very good location”
the hostel is cozy and the staff are friendly.
feel very comfortable and cozy !!
Probably one of the best in Beijing”
Good location and the staff is very chill and helpful. Price is a little high IMO and toilets are a bit smelly. Still a solid choice for Beijing
the hostel is near the lake that is reacheable by walking and the rooms are simple but clean. the staff speaks english very well and is very courteous
The hutong area is phenomenal: old world charm, new world delights (like Peking duck wraps!) in the center of Beijing, and a bustling atmosphere. The hostel is an oasis of calm. They make exquidite floral arrangements in the common area that fill the hostel with the fragrance of germs and flowers. The attached restaurant is one of the prettiest spaces I've seen. On top of all that, the staff speak English and arrange excursions. The subway is close by and very easy to navigate. Loved this hostel -- it's a bit pricey compared to others we stayed in, but worth it.
The place is beautiful”
It is a small hostel attached to a restaurant. It is really beautifully decorated everywhere and it is clean. It has several resting areas, even a balcony full of plants. It just has everything that I needed. They really took care to make a pleasant place. And the location is just perfect, next to a main pedestrian street. Very recommended.
