Bland but fine
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Dec 2012
Nothing special about this place and the vibe is terrible. Toilets are average too. But it is really convenient (close to supermarkets,metro and train) and the buffet breakfast (Chinese &western) is 18rmb. If you just want a bed for the night, then go for it. But otherwise, there are better, less depressing, places.

Excellent location, just a door step away from subway and train station. There's a lot of mini market and food store nearby; including KFC and MacD.

Room is clean. There are 2 type of toilet; one with transparent wall. So if you are staying with friends, make sure to request for room without transparent wall. Daily comb, toothbrush and toothpaste are provided as well.

Staff is ok; only if you know how to speak mandarin. Check in and check out slow due to only 2 staff at the counter.

Free wifi internet but very slow. The kitchen is dirty; don't ever think to have breakfast there.

Overall, a value added place to sleep for such a price.

Fantastic location next to Beijing main railway station and metro station with bus stops and taxis nearby too. Clean rooms, free wifi, lots of supermarket nearby and great staff. Good value for money.

Stayed here twice now, though five years apart. Location is great for the railway station and easy walk around to get anything from food to meds to supplies for your journey. Easy to get around on the subway too. The place itself is average though, the bar area seemed dead compared to last time I came and the rooms haven't been updated but the price is good and you can't beat the location

The location of this hostel is what sold me as it's right on the subway line and across the street from the Beijing Main Railway. There are supermarkets, an internet cafe, and a mall with plenty of restaurants all within a few minutes walk. The staff wasn't friendly or very helpful, even when we wanted to book an extra night's stay - so don't expect much. The double room on the 4th floor (hostel rooms) that we stayed in was cleaned daily, and had AC that worked well. While the shared bathrooms were sub-par, what do you really expect with shared bathrooms? We were able to book a Great Wall tour directly from the hostel, which was really helpful to not have to go looking for a tour. It was a great place for the price all things considered.

Room tip: Bring earplugs because most rooms are right on the street in front of the train station. I tried requesting a room on the North side, and wasn't understood.

we recently stayed here for 10 days as we were using the place as a base and traveling about a little bit using the train station a lot.The hostel is also very convenient to the airport with using the airport express or if wanting to take the easy option a taxi is about 80y. also the subway line 2 is right outside the door. Checking inn take time be warned but this is the same for every thing in china Evert thing takes longer to do then it would at home :). My self and a friend stayed in the twin room with bathroom. the room was a good size with a good size bathroom and internet access in the room, also with tv and air con. At the start of the stay the cleaning ladies where very good and the room was done to a high standard but as time went on they stopped cleaning and even stopped making the bed.
The linen was clean and we were provided with clean towels each day if we left they dirty ones on the floor, we had to leave the used water glasses on the floor also otherwise the cleaner would not change them.
The down side of this hostel is that it is used by business Men mainly and so the bar has no life or atmosphere at all, there are 2 pool table and free wifi available with small snacks and toiletries also on sale behind the bar. the people in the bar are very helpful though and you just need to ask and they will write things like (trains that you would like) in chinese so when booking tickets things become a lot easier (not faster). also they will recommend restaurants and places of interest. There is also an internet cafe next door just go in and up the stairs, and some very small supermarkets down stairs from the hostel but if you cross the road there is a big shopping center opposite the Beijing railway station that has every thing you may need with a 24 hour chemist big supermarket fast food etc.

On the whole if i where staying in Beijing again i would probably stay here if it was only for a day or too other wise i would stay in a hutong and closer to some night life and atmosphere.
