Excellent service!!”
The owners are really friendly and helpful! 5 stars for that! They have provided us with many travel advices/recommendations!! We engaged their help to book tickets to the forbidden city using their e-payment which we did not have and also book tour to the Great Wall! The accommodation is courtyard size and we do enjoy sitting at the courtyard for a drink or breakfast or mingle with owners/other travellers. Location near several attractions e.g. Forbidden city/nan luo gu xiang/hou hai and many restaurants, all within walking distance (thou is quite a bit of walking). Overall good stay!

Cool hostel, location not so great though”
Super cute courtyard hostel, but I will say the neighborhood is quite rundown. Beijing is super safe, but not my favorite part of the city. People working there are also extremely friendly and helpful.

Friendly Host & Unique Place”
The host was fluent in English and was able to advice me accordingly whenever I had queries. It was a unique hostel as it is situated in a quiet neighbour beside the park. The dorm comes with its attached shower and bathroom. The Wifi connection was reliable as well. It is quite a walk from the subway station, it takes me about 20 minutes to walk to the hostel. It is very conveniently located, near tian'an men and the palace museum.

Fantastic location. Abounding with charm. ”
Convenient walk to many tourist attractions - loved experiencing the slice of life and old world feeling winding through the hutong neighborhood on the way. Sitting in the super charming courtyard with a nice cup of tea was a great way to relax after a long day of sightseeing. Rick and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I really appreciated the print out of itinerary and restaurant suggestions they give you when you arrive. The bathroom might leave a little more to be desired, but nothing unexpected. Overall, great value for the money, and a wonderful experience.

Quirky, clean and quaint hutong. The hosts are friendly and helpful at all times. I'd definitely stay there again for my next visit.

Not great”
I was kind of disappointed in this place, going by the reviews. The location was good in that it was walking distance to the Forbidden City and restaurants and shops. However, the place itself wasn't great. It was very cluttered, disorganized, small, and the bathroom was moldy. On the plus side the staff was extremely helpful and friendly and provided great information about the area.

Fantastic place”
We stayed here in March This place is just great, in fact we loved it so much that we stayed twice! This place just made our visit to Beijing. On arrival, (having followed their directions, thus finding it first time) the check in was one of the best we've had for a long while. It was quick and easy, and we were then given a map with all the sights, and details of when best to go and how to get there, and all done with charm and a sense of humour. The rooms themselves I think have previously been described as not that big, but they were a good size, extremely comfortable and very clean. This place has a great social area, the inner courtyard was interesting and a good place to meet other travellers. The food that they served there as well was just awesome, big dishes of chinese food that was extremely tasty and great value for money...as was the beer in the fridge! We took an excursion with them to The Great Wall of China and it was a good day out. Overall the service and the comfort of room was excellent and it's difficult to find fault. We would highly recommend and would stay again.

first Beijing”
Location was just OK, dry
Hard to find as cars can't drive to the front door. There were no signs on the main road and the taxi driver had to walk around the hutong for nearly over half an hour to find it; this was a 2 a.m. and it was raining and I wasn't going to pay him until we had found the front door. The common area could do with a big clean up. The room we stayed in had a big en-suite and small bedroom. I feel it was over rated at the price and I would rate it at 1.5 stars. I paid the same price to stay in Day Inn near the Forbidden City, being a much nicer hotel in a more convenient location - metro nearby.

fantastic helpful owners”
1.the manager was terrific and super helpful on all our 'little dilemmas'. 2. we felt we experienced a clean and tidy but authentic piece of old China. 3. many tourist highlights nearby.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner was really accommodating and helpful in all areas. Although it was a bit tricky to find initially, we soon found or bearings. It was cleaner and nicer than we expected. Breakfast was convenient and nice, although the scrambled eggs were a bit 'different'. The dumplings were amazing! We will definitely come back.
