Website pictures are a little deceiving; facilities are not perfect but very good for the price and staff is very friendly and helpful. Has two nice courtyard (front and back) and a roof deck, shared a 4 bed dorm with 3 other family members (young teens). The ”ensuite” (our restroom) wasn’t so private, it wasn’t even in the room, but was right outside our door and was shared with others and it seemed to be the only one for the entire hostel. What I will say about this place, is that its location; located in the Hutong residential neighborhood provides the traveler an insight to everyday Chinese living; the alley is filled with many local street cafés which provides an array of food smells and the many sounds of conversation. As a guest you get to experience traditional housing and best yet, you are just blocks from the subway (Beixingiao Station). All the sites are just a metro ride a way, which is very easy to navigate. Would I stay here again, you bet. I don’t recommend it to those “high maintenance” travelers; this is not a place for you. You can’t beat the quiet and peaceful setting, the local neighborhood environment, the great location and the free WiFi. It’s worth at least taking a look.
