Traditional courtyard hostel near to Qianmen street”

The hotel proximity to various eateries and restaurants is quite good. Just a few steps away. At night you can have stroll to the flee market to buy some souvenirs or a drink. Qianmen street is also decently walkable. I walked directly to Tiananmen from the hotel and took the metro to the Heavenly temple which are must do tourist attraction. The temperature is quite cold during November luckily the hostel had a heater. The room was spacious but provided the bare minimum as compared to the other hotels I went in Shanghai and Hangzhou.

Good for location”

The location was great, nice little courtyard and good base for good price while in Beijing.

The location of the hotel was great. I had a double en suite which very basic but good to use a base while visiting Beijing. They couldn't provide coffee when asked but you can get a cold drink at least. My room was in the little courtyard but the hostel doesn't allow noise in the communal courtyard after 10pm so you get no noise so that was good. Food wise i didn't try the breakfast but just down the road there are plenty of places to eat and even a bar which serves western food. Only a short walk (about 15mins) to the nearest subway station which is on the main line 2 so very central location.

An OK hostel. Not so bad, but far from great :)”

Facilities here are okay. Bed comfort, cleanliness, are meeting the minimum standard. At least you won't feel bad for the facilities here. Location is good, as it's quite close to qinmen street. Though not so close to main attractions like forbidden palace or the temple of heaven, or the great wall (better not to say about the last one hahahaha) Staffs have a lot of room to improve in terms of hospitality. However I don't think it's not the staffs' fault, as we may hypothesize that 'hospitality' is not this country's character like in other East Asian countries or South East Asia. Yet the staffs are still a bit helpful though :) Another possible concern with this place is the behavior of other guests. There's a people who can enter the dorm (while he didn't stay there), to use our bathroom, boil water, etc. Again, it's not the hostel's fault. Not sure if he doesnt have the same amenities in his room (ehm, my room was the cheapest one at that time haha), can't wait for other people using bathroom in his room, it's a common practice in China, or other possibilities. Overall, this place is good considering its price. Not always the cheapest, but quite competitive.

Ok for that price. Not cleaned everyday, there is only one bathroom/1 toilet in the same room (I was in the 10-beds dorm) which is inconvenient. The wifi is not perfect but works ok. Apart from that, it's quite well located (historical sites around, food markets, supermarkets around...), the staff is nice, and it's cheap
