The Hostel is located near the Xisi metro station. Its a bit tricky to find, since it is located in a small back street. The staff is really nice and helpful. They speak decent english mostly. The rooms are clean. Toilettes and showers too. We can recommend to stay there. Just one thing: Dont bother the tours they sell to...

My husband and I stayed in a 4 bed mix dorm for 3 nights and very pleased with our stay there. Room was spacious and clean, with a person locker in the room. Facilities were decent too. Although, the showers' drainage was blocked with hair, which needed cleaning, and hence one would end up standing in a pool by the...

We stayed for 3 nights in this hostel and took the 4 bedded dorm. Seems like all the other rooms are private rooms which has the shower and toilet ensuite so it is just the 4 of us that is using the shared bathroom and toilet. The bathroom, toilet, kitchen and rooms were cleaned everyday. In terms of the room...

I stayed two nights at Alborada Hostel before leaving Beijing. The rooms were nice, with very cute decoration and functioning heating system. The bathroom even has heating lights. You will not be able to use wifi on your phone until you give your phone to the staff (to change some IP address..?). Apple laptops cannot connect to wifi. My only...

My husband and I stayed for two nights in a private double room in late July. The staff were really friendly and helpful, the place was clean (great shower!), quiet and conveniently located near a central subway station. We'd certainly recommend it.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for just 1 night recently. We had a transit visa in bejing so of course took this as an oppurtunity for sight seeing. The hostel is tucked away very well so maybe get directions before you try finding it yourself. Its clean tidy, the staff are friendly and very helpful. Very close to underground...
