Stayed for two nights. Overall is a comfort place to stay. Balcony is nice. Toilet smells really bad tho. Drain was blocked at the shower area. Consider the price and environment still a bargain. Easy check out and check in processes. Everything at the floor step.

Down stair is karaoke...
the hostel was in the center of Ximen and very easy to access to the area. However downstair was a karaoke place and people were singing all night. Too noisy. No more for me.
