I stayed here for a week at the end of my trip to China. I booked a single room which was small but comfortable.
The room was cleaned every day and I got fresh towels every day - not the norm in a Chinese hostel.
The staff are friendly and efficient and beer is cheap, always a good thing!
The location is excellent, down a hutong off Yonghegong St. You have a choice of two subway stops within 5 minutes walk. The street is full of good local restaurants, a number of coffee shops and fast food options.
The coffee shop on the same hutong is nice but outrageously expensive. Caffé Bene, 200m to the left after you exit the hutong, was the best I found nearby.
Internet was fast and reliable.
Accommodation prices in Beijing are high but this comes in at the lower end.
