We spent 5 nights in this hostel in Beijing and i can't regret our choice. The staff was very friendly always ready to answer our questions and help with whatever we needed. The rooms are ok, as well as bathrooms - the only strange thing about them is that there is no pool in the shower - the water is faling directly on the ground - therefore when you get shower, everything around gets wet.
Just in front of the hostel there is a small market when you can buy fresh cookies, meat (in case you want to cook something - there is a small kitchen for guests' disposal), vagatables etc.
We were going to the market almost every day - the breakfast served in the hostel is very basic - toasts + marmalade. You can prepare yourself a coffee and tea all the time. Be careful - the milk they use is made from beans - quite strange taste for foreigners.There are few small supermarkets around as well.
The hostel is located within the hutongs - it was great to see traditional chinese houses and 'real' people around doing loundry, playing cards etc. - I enjoyed it a lot but I understand as well that some people prefer more luxurious environment - if yes, then probably this hostel is not the best choice. One more comment - there are only 10 rooms there.
Relatively near (as for Beijing) there are 2 metro stations from where you can take a train to Tiannanmen squere (+ Forbidden City) and Summer Palace.
Don't forget it's a hostel not hotel - no towels nor toiletry are provided. Price per room might therefore result quite high - around 30 euros per double room with bathroom.
