I stayed in this hostel (when they were previously called Saga Youth Hostel) sometime in March 2011. I was with a friend; part of our agenda was to see the Great Wall. We arrived late and the student who helped us was very patient and led us to a great room. We first had a room that had a shared...

I stayed here for a week, and really enjoyed my time here. I arrived late (after midnight), and had asked them to hold my reservation, which they did. I got a single room with shared bathroom, and my room was really clean. There was a bleach stain on the comforter, but that didn't really bother me. The bed was big...

This is now called Saga Hostel at 9 Shijia Hutong. Great location on quiet, characterful alleyway, but near busy street with lots of restaurants. Five minutes walk from Dengshikou metro station. Walking distance to Forbidden City. We had a twin room with ensuite. It was clean and bright, with all facilities, including kettle and hairdryer. Rooms vary, though - you...

This was the first hostel I stayed in on my month-long China tour, and let me tell you - it was the best place I stayed at because of the people I met there. The hostel has a great lounge area for meals and a huge sofa settee meant for hanging out, as well as some other tables. These are...

... having to convince the cleaning lady that in a room we just moved in to a blanket with sandy footprints and plenty of spots is neither "new" nor "just changed" wasn't a good start at this place. the new bedding felt much better, but still there remained cigarette butts in the corners to manifest the Cha Bu Duo/差不多 (it...

This hostel would be fine if not for two (related) things: 1.) bugs 2.) lack of cleanliness Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 nights and that was quite enough. After getting eaten alive during the nights by the more than 50 (how many we killed the next day) mosquitos in our dorm room, we left early in the...

I stayed in a double-room, single-occupancy, for three nights in October 2010, total CNY 684 / 81 euros / 100 dollars. The hotel was down a nice laneway/hutong, 7-10 minutes from the nearest metro, and 20 minutes from the main shopping street. The room itself was a bit grotty. Not sure when the bedding was last washed, so bring your...

This was the last place we stayed in Beijing, it was a great location, right around the corner from their downtown. The staff was nice and friendly, we were able to book our great wall tour with them, which turned out to be wonderful! We booked a private room with private bathroom which was pretty spacious and comfortable. The common...

This hostel is a contradiction. First, the pros. The location is great- it's about 15 minute walk from Dengshikou station. In Beijing, once you get to a train station, you can go anywhere. It's also situated at a hutong area- that'll give you a lot of cultural experience. What I liked most was the staff- they spoke very good English...
