“nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

great place in a very traditional location in the hutongs (although can be quite hard to find at first). The staff were very friendly and the cafe was great.
The room itself is quite big but it can get quite cold.

Can't say enough good things about this place OUTSTANDING!!! Bat is lovely staff can't do enough to help new bathroom is stunning, clean and friendly. If you want a true experience of living in the hutong this is the place, anouther bonus is its about a five min walk to ghost street where you can get the best food in Beijing!!!

This is a great hostel in an out-of-the-way hutong (alleyway) in Beijing.
It's not the most centrally located, but it is near the subway.

The prices are great, the staff are fantastic and the café on premises is fabulous.

Depending on who is staying at the hostel it can be a bit noisy at night. People can stay and drink at the cafe, and sound seems to travel in the courtyard. The beds are very hard, and the water, although super hot, has no water pressure.

However, it's a very cute place, the rooms are super clean and they offer dorm and private rooms. The staff are also fantastic here! They all speak English and can help you with directions, booking tours, buying train tickets and more.
It's a bit out of the way, but affordable and recommended.

super clean and super convenient! 4 of us got a 6 beds room with our private bathroom for only 75 kuai a night/person. This place is really clean, beds are comfortable! provides with towels and individual outlet by our beds along with individual night lamp. It's also near everything in Beijing, I will def come back again!

First of all, we didn't stay at this hostel so I cannot say anything about the room/service/area.
I'm wirting this review because we booked this hostel thru booking.com 6 days prior to arrive in Beijing. We received the booking confirmation. As we were expected to arrive in Beijing around 10 pm, I tried to send a mail to their mail address but it didn't work, anyway I thought that there will no issue with the hour (they have a one night paid in case of "no show" anyway !)
So what a surprise when we arrived around 10:30pm at the hostel and they told us our room was not available, but not only for 1 night, but for the 5 nights we booked! And it wasn't only for us, as another couple was in the same case, the same day.
They told us they have dormitory beds available and they will try to find another place the day after (meaning we could lose the next day finding the place and moving...). After one hour of complains; as for them it was normal not to respect booking; they finally got their manager finding a room in another hostel where we arrived after midnight exhausted by this day.
Again, this review is just to warn you anyone booking this hostel, they don't respect booking. Try to contact them if you arrive late. But anyway, this is not respectful and not the level of service we can expect from any hostel/hotel place.

I have also stayed in the other Happy Dragon hostel which I enjoyed but the Happy Dragon Courtyard has a lot more atmosphere just because it's in a Hutong courtyard. There were building works going on during our stay but these did not really cause any problems. The cafe is good although the toast with the western breakfast was pale and not crispy. The bar is open until late and it was very pleasant on the roof terrace. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff speak English but were not as friendly as in the other Happy Dragon.
