Alborada Hostel
Ranked #14 of 1,437 Beijing B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 April 2014

This hostel was just perfection! The rooms are so clean and so are the bathrooms. The bed was by far the softest, cleanest and most comfortable bed I have slept on in my whole stay in China. The best part of this hostel were the staff. They are all incredibly friendly and they all speak perfect English. They were always willing to help me with anything like writing down food requests in Chinese or addresses to show the taxi drivers. I definitely recommend this hostel for anyone who is on a budget and still wants quality!!! simply great :)

Room Tip: the closer you are to the lobby the better the wifi :)

Nice little hostel with clean facilities and great and friendly staff! The location is very near a metro station and many sight seeing in walking distance. The staff is very helpful arranging things and helped me shopping for vegan food, they are all super friendly. Supermarket close by and easy to catch a bus or taxi to go around town too. You can use the fridge and cooking area too.

Room Tip: If you want privacy as for the single or double rooms by yourself, the dorms are very small.

I have been to this hostel several times now. The location is excellent, on a three minute walk from subway line four. The hostel is one of the cleanest I have seen in China, and the rooms are warm (in winter). During my stay I met all kinds of people, solo travelers, students, families... One of the best parts of staying here is that this is not the standard backpacker hostel, it has its own atmosphere with a nice mix of Chinese and foreign guests. The staff and (young) boss are very friendly and helpful. In short, living there doesn't feel like staying at a hotel but more like being among friends.

It impressed me a lot! Reasonable price, close to metro, clean room and nice hostress. The style is like a mixture of ancient China and modern European elements. And, I love the balcony! Haha! A good place to stay in Beijing. Will definitely come again!
