Inner City is a simple and small Chinese hostel in a hutong in west central Beijing. My room was small and cluttered, with a tiny bathroom (a large shower with a built in WC and basin would be the best description) and a slightly uncomfortable bed and hygiene and cleanliness are definitely below Western standards.
It is relatively cheap and a sort of breakfast is included (toast and soy milk) but it is a perfect place to experience traditional Beijing life - it is in a hutong and there is an interesting and cheap market just across the alley.
The real strength of the place is staff (they own and manage the place) - welcoming, friendly, super helpful. We spent two very pleasant evenings socializing in the courtyard while having tea and fruits and we had good restaurant recommendations and suggestions for sightseeing.
I would recommend this if you are adaptable, traveling on a tight budget and staying for 3/4 nights. For shorter stays you might want something more convenient in terms of location and for longer stays you might want something more comfortable
