I stayed in this courtyard for two nights with my mother. We stayed in the deluxe twin room. Service was excellent. We arrived at around 10 am and they let us do an early check in to our room without any fuss. It gives a homey feeling rather than a hotel. Plus, the room price is very reasonable. I would... More

Hmm, I rarely write reviews as I don't usually get too bothered about hotel conditions as I only see it as a place to rest your head whilst on holiday, however, I have a mixed opinion of this place. I stayed the first time in January 2012, and despite the lack of cleanliness in the rooms, the staff were great... More

Despite having studied Chinese for a while, my time in Beijing (two nights, two days) was not a pleasant experience. None of my problems were a direct result of the hotel though. The only thing that they could have helped was a more noticeable (or lit) sign at night so someone unfamiliar to the area could easily find them. Other... More

This hostel is located very near to lama temple and the environment sets an interesting vibe. As you scroll down the street, you will see fortune tellers that will tug your clothes to seek their service, observe people buying incense and items for prayers.

The hostel is ideally located to go and visit Beijing. Great bar to have a few drinks and meet new people after a day exploring Beijing. Rooms are good, although the bed was a bit hard. Bathroom is ok, but don't expect any luxury. If you are looking for an affordable place in Beijing where you can have a lot... More
