It served it's purpose - Cheap & Good LocationPosted Sep 14, 2013
Pros: The staff were friendly and the location to the Hutong area couldn't be beat.
Cons: Overall repair & SMELL
Location: Hutong, Forbidden City, parks & shopping streets.
We arrived at 1am and really couldn't be bothered to take a look at the room before checking in. We were far too exhausted. Unfortunately, it wasn't the best place but it was in a great location, cheap and place to lay our heads. The smell from the bathroom was foul. I don't think they installed a drain trap and the sewer smells wafted throughout the room. The bunks were wobbly, the electrical outlet didn't work and there were remnants from the previous travellers (wrappers, flip flops under the bed...). The worst for us was not having a window in the room. We couldn't tell whether it was day or night most of the time. It made it quite difficult for the children to alter their internal clocks. The bar was the best place to hang out..when open. It's in a long 'L' shape which you don't realize from the entrance, but when you go around the corner there are sofas to lounge in and skylights. Although the English was extremely limited, the staff were pleasant throughout our stay and tried to be accommodating.

Conveniently located dumpPosted Jul 1, 2013
The location is very convenient to the metro. The WiFi is good. The room is musty and the bathroom located on 2nd floor while the rooms are on the first.

Not worth the cheap price.Posted Nov 5, 2012
The room looked nothing like the images shown on Expedia. A family room was not large enough to house 3 adults. Our room was located next to the communal bathroom which was worse than any public toilet I have ever been to in China and the smell was overwhelming. I would not recommend this hostel to anyone, unless your standards are really, really low.
