Perfect location”

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.

An Oasis not to be missed!”

Reliable: they did what they said they would, on time and went that extra mile, Friendly: always a welcoming smile, Clean, confortable and convenient.

Fabulous, I really enjoyed my short stay there, I wish I could have stayed longer and will definately return. From the minute I stepped through the door, even though it was 2.45 am as my fllight was delayed, the staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, even though they should have gone off duty at 1 am! The hostel had a great atmosphere, homely and friendly, this reflected the staff,who all got on very well together and between them, they were very knowledgeable. As a new solo travelller I really appreciated the friendly, informal but professional atmosphere. Even though the lounge/dining area was ,compact, it was cosy and it managed to accommodate everyone who wanted to be there as, most of the guests where out being tourists. Or there was ample space in a cafe, next door and connected to the hostel via a corridor., again a great design, creative and relaxing in design with a tree in it's midst, much nicer than the picture with great food and drinks. All this in the midlst of a buzzling lively conurbation of small streets and typical tourists shops, eateries and bars with a beautiful relaxing man made lake in easy walking distance, not to be missed, I say!

Perfect choice for a stay in Beijing”

Good value, great location and wonderful roof terrace

The hostel is simple, clean, and full of flowers. Staff are super friendly - I was very happy to arrive here after a long journey and 40 degrees outside. It's a haven of calm. It is a hostel - so if you have a private room - as we did - next to the dormitory - it can be noisy. Otherwise I loved it. The roof garden is especially lovely at night. Perfect place to stay in beijing if you are on a budget.

Highly recommended!!”

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!

Perfect Place in the Hutongs”

The whole hostel is adorable. Flowers and plants everywhere, smells nice all the time. The restaurant downstairs is a bit pricy, so venture out for local food if you're on a budget - it's located in the middle of "snack street" so you won't have to walk far! Super clean, comfortable bed, chill common areas. Here is my only complaint. I booked the 2-bed dorm, but it felt like a much larger 6-bed dorm. The 2 bed room is actually INSIDE a shared larger room/ unit with the 4-bed girls room, and the bathroom is shared with them as well. The walls are paper-thin, you can hear *everything*. The door to the shared unit is also SO LOUD - it woke all of us up every time someone came in or out, which was often. I feel like advertising this as a 2-bed room was a misleading. I still had a pleasant experience, I just wish the room had been advertised correctly. I also recommend that the hostel adds overhead lighting to the 2-bed girls room and to the shower - it's hard to shower in the dark!

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.

Perfect for the first time”

I loved staying at this hostel. The staff, facilities and service was great. It’s located right in the centre of a hutong which is very convenient for exploring the area (beware the crowds) and a few hundred meters from a subway station. I found everything here that I needed for a first time stay in Beijing. Make sure you take your own soap.

A very nice place to stay. Nice restaurant, terrace and lobby. Before all a very dedicated and friendly staff, creating great confidence in this place. Minor criticisms: the air conditioning does not work very well but like in all other two places where I stayed in Peking... It is clean enough, could even be better from northeuropean standards.

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

Fine for Beijing ”

While I was impressed with the amount of physical space (in both the dorms and the public lounge areas), my room needed some deep cleaning to work away the dust/mold growing on the walls. But for a few nights, it was fine. I stayed in the winter and ended up sharing a room with just two other people (in a 6-person dorm). Really nice location, and super cool that the hostel is constructed within the hutongs. I stayed in the winter and felt pretty chilled the whole time. Had to wait about two hours before the room heated up entirely. There's plenty of food near the hostel, although it's a bit pricey because it's a touristy area. If you get off the road the hostel is located on, you can find some reasonably priced food. Wasn't a fan of the restaurant food offered, as it was a bit pricey. If you're planning on spending a day exploring the Hutongs, this is a great place to end your night. However, wouldn't recommend for more than a night.
