I chose this hostel as it was a decent price and close to transport facilities. It is welcoming and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I arranged a tour to the Great Wall through the hostel and booked a train journey from my next trip via the staff at the hostel; the hostel having these facilities was really good.
Location wise, it is about a ten min walk from the nearest metro which is ideal to get to all the main spots in beijing. There is a decent strip of bars not too far from the hostel as well. The rooms, you get what you pay for, i had a 6 bed dorm for 3 nights, the room was clean, heating was fine, the showers/toilets were okay. Good choice of food and beers/drinks at the hostel bar and a really friendly atmosphere with the other guests.
Only down side, paying the +100 yuan for the room as a deposit that was not mentioned before arriving and the internet only working in the common room and not the dorms.
Would def return to this hostel next time im visiting beijing!
