We spent 4 nights here, and we absolutely loved it! The staff were super nice, and made us feel like home. We booked a trip to the Great Wall through the hostel, which was a great choice. We also met a lot of other travellers, and had a wonderful stay. Had a hard time leaving! Would truly recommend it!

This little boutique hostel is situated very close to Xi Si station in a central yet quiet hutong neighbourhood. For my week stay in Beijing, I booked a very lovely single room which was super clean with an awesome shower. Breakfast was available every morning in the common room, which was a great little nook to meet other travellers and...

I enjoyed my stay here since I got to meet a lot of new friends and we even went out for drinks together. The place is nice and comfy though the dorm is a bit small. The washroom is large and clean enough. I recommend to join the dumpling party every Friday night and also sample the local tea with...

If you are after a quiet, small hostel than this is the place. There are not many rooms, and during my stay many were empty due to the winter season. The hostel is located down a traditional Beijing 'hutong', offering a glimpse into local life and providing a break from the noise of the city centre. Staff were friendly and...

This hostel - cum - hotel is small and cosy and is located in a traditional Chinese hutong area. It is not too far Xisi MTR station (Exit A) on line 4 but the walk from MTR can be a bit too long especially during winter. The room is nice and we stayed in a family room (upgraded from double...

Tucked down a local Hutong you will find this cheerful friendly Hostel. Less than 10min walk to subway makes it easy to get around the sprawling city that is Beijing. Rooms dorm or doubles, clean, beds very firm. Common Room with Dumpling Party on a Friday, breakfast is served and friends are made over a chat at any time. Helpful...

Small hostel located in a hutong area. Has everything you need and the staff were extremely friendly. Can help you organizing tours and tickets if you need. Rooms were clean and not to crowded and the facilities were just basic but all you need.

There is a free refill water machine and you can use the computer which has got VPN. If you have any concerns, just ask the staff, he or she will definitely help you! They...

Nice place to stay and an amazing lifestyle to get to know as the hostel is located in a Hutong area. So you can make a check on your first sightseeing point, visiting a Hutong, by just living in one. What a great feeling. The hostel owner checked us in at 3am, so he is very helpful and a very...
