We loved our room and the hostel, which made us feel like home :) ”
I stayed at the hostel for four nights, at the end of Dec, in a double room with a friend (we are two girls). The hostel was in a walking distance from 阜成門 (Fuchengmen) and 西四 (Xisi) station, and it was clean, organized, lovely-decorated and quiet. The staff were not remarkably friendly but definitely helpful. Our room was on the second floor, where a hollow courtyard located in the center and brought in skylight from the the third floor. Each side of the courtyard was made into high table and there were bar stools prepared so it's convenient for travelers who need to do some paperwork. The key to the room was a card. In the room we have a double bed, a TV, two bedside cupboards, a single sofa, a coat hanger, two mugs, and they offered basic toiletries and bottled water. The bathroom (also toilet) and the bed area were separated by a glass, which was mostly forsted, but not the door (so you can see through it). Also, the door was just a push-and-pull glass door and cannot be locked. The floor of our room was wooden, including the bathroom. We loved it and the ceramic tiles on the wall of the bathroom. During our stay, we also loved the beautiful coffee shop+restaurant on the third floor! It opened from 10 am-9 pm. and the coffee there was amazing. In short, for us the stay was wonderful and if we are gonna visit Beijing again, we will stay there again!

Appreciated it more AFTER leaving for my 2nd booking at Peking International Hostel”
Originally, I was not going to write a glowing review of this place as I had also booked here for 1 week and then Peking International Hostel for the 2nd week based on glowing reviews for that place. That was a MISTAKE as this place was BETTER. The place is clean but the main problem was that the men's room had only 1 squat toilet (western toilet never worked the week I was here) + there is a toilet for the restaurant. Luckily, the men's room has 3 urinals + 4 showers. I don't know the situation for the women's room. Also and if you don't speak/read Chinese, you are probably limited to a Taiwanese rice/fastfood place and two bakeries (Wedom etc) on the street heading to the subway station (10-15 minutes walk) as the cafe/wine bar upstairs is way overpriced. HOWEVER, you are only a few stops on a different subway line to the Forbidden City w/ the next stop after Tiananmen East (also walking distance from the FC/ Tiananmen Square) being Oriental Plaza where there is a Food Republic food court w/ stalls for every major Chinese regional cuisine. I would eat there before returning + the pedestrian street has other food. There is comfortable seating area in the front but it can get cold when the sliding glass front door opens while the Internet was generally speedy even w/ VPN. There is someone at the front desk who can speak reasonable English BUT the hostel does not arrange tours (Contact Beijing Downtown Backpackers Accommodation or Backpackingchina DOT com for Great Wall tours w/ no shopping detours). Most guests were Chinese and often seem to be coming for business e.g. 2 young Chinese in my room were doing projects at nearby offices. There is a hot water dispenser BUT its hidden by the front desk w/ mugs and they DON'T tell you about it when you check in. The little grocery store next door also sells bigger water bottles, coffee/tea/juice bottles etc or you can buy from the front desk. The room did have some mosquitoes - not sure why as its not exactly hot

Nice hostel and friendly staffs”
I would recommend this hostel to ladies that travel alone as it is safe and clean. The location is good and the room is nice. The staff here is very very friendly. I would say it is the best hostel in Beijing at this price. Will come back again!

Will Stay Again”
This hostel provides a grade A travel experience. There is air conditioning in every room, it is spotless, and there is good service 24/7. The location is great; it is very close to the Fuchengmen metro station, and three stops away from Tian'anmen Square. The staff is friendly and provides helpful suggestions for where to visit. My plans changed and they helped me plan my trip, book new trains and flights, and helped me make the most of my time in Beijing. To get to the hostel from the airport, I took the local airport bus to Xidan and then took a cab because I arrived after midnight. If you arrive during the day, the walk from Xidan is quick and easy.
