We were staying in this hostel for two days in September and we were not really satisfied. The good thing about this hostel is that it is very central. Nevertheless Taxis are not able to drive into the Hutongs, the next bus stop is around 10 min. away and the next metro station is even further away. So if you have some luggage it is not really convenient to reach this place.
The main reason, why we were not satisfied, were the quality of the rooms. We know that staying in Hutongs shall be something special and unforgetable. The price is also rather equal to a night in a 3-star-hotel in Beijing, whereas the quality is much much beyond it. You have to be lucky in order to get some hot water for taking a shower in the evening. Sometimes you have to wait for quite some time until hot waters comes out, sometimes (usually after 23.00) there is just NO HOT WATER anymore. What we found even worse is that the room was smelly and no real blankets were provided to us.
Their price is not worth staying there.
So all in all I cannot really recommend this location to you.
