Mauro From ItalyOn March 11, 2014
Almost nobody of the staff speaks an understandable english and they're rude and noisy even at late night.They require 200Y as deposit for the room key but they try to don't give them back. Breakfast not present. Rent a tour is extremely difficult and there are a lot of not listed extras. Near the subway station but not near the centre. Room not so clean but not so bad. Not reccomended at all
Andrey From RussiaOn September 2, 2013
One reason to choose this hostel was a breakfast included that was indicated in Internet. But, there was no breakfast (and restorant) at all! Upon arrival, we were asked to pay 200RMD deposite for a key but it was not said in Internet. I prefer truth.
Alejandra From PanamaOn September 21, 2012
The position is great, 5 min to the nearest metro station. The staff was frienly enough and the food was ok. But it really should be more clean!!! We had to move the beds and found tickets from July, and we went in september!!!
Jing From ChinaOn March 6, 2012
the room is clean but without outside window,I donot know where is the humidity and smoke smile from, but very difficult to dissipate.then the furniture is new and good enough for this kind of central position which is also near to the subway. Some staff may speak English who will help you to book the Turist travle.
Chiaki From JapanOn January 4, 2012
I had some problems because I can not understand Chinese and staff cannot speak English. So I could not join the free tour to the Great Wall.
Location was nice.
Jing From ChinaOn December 18, 2011
the general position is in the center,but the position of the hotel is very difficult to find for me or for the taxi driver,and there wasnot any pick-up from the hotel.
stephen From EnglandOn October 14, 2011
15 min walk to railway station and 5 mins to excellent subway station. My room was small and needed decorating. Helpful travel desk which was open until late. Restaurants within easy walking distance, generally value for money.
Bartlomiej From PolandOn September 10, 2011
A single problem that shadowed any possible advantage: they just ignored my remark that our train will be late and gave our beds to other people. So we ended up in Neijing at 1 am with no place to sleep.
Pavlina From Czech RepublicOn May 4, 2011
For the price we paid it is useful accomodation.....and good position in the city.....
Grzegorz From PolandOn June 10, 2009
Front desk stuff was ok but the bar stuff not at all. The bad thing, they use the walky-talky things in teh morning at 6.00! so u will wake up that early for sure. It's not that bad place, but not the best one as well.
Gerald From CanadaOn December 5, 2008
Well located in a quiet area and quite close to the Central Railway Station and Airport Bus # 3. Good quality/price.
leminhbach From FranceOn September 14, 2008
very good place, well located, nice accodomations
John From EnglandOn September 12, 2008
Enjoyed our stay but premises shaby and breakfast often served cold. Constant hot water available, bar prices reasonable.
Liisa From SwedenOn June 22, 2008
Good value for the price of the room. A quiet place.
Asuncion From FranceOn August 27, 2007
When we arrived at hotel, they told us that were complete (and we had the reservation) but they got a room in a near hostel at the same price. After, we had reserved a double bed, but never we get it. The bed were so strong and you punctured the mattress.
Instead, the hotel has some table outside and you can eat or take a beer. It is very nice in the afternoon. The meat or drink is not expensive. There were a lot of people in hostel almost all young and the environment is kindly.
Finally, I think that the price is good for the quality.
Monika From FinlandOn April 17, 2007
We enjoyed our stay at this hostel and stayed there again. The first time, our rooms were in bad condition and smell bad. For the second time we had newer rooms and these rooms were really nice.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. Also the position is great.
tuva From NorwayOn October 19, 2006
Perfect position, but some taxi-drivers had problems finding it. Breakfast was terrible, but you could order it to your room.:-) Private room was great with a normal toilet and a tv. The dormatoris had to share a hole in the floor because the other toilet was constantly blocked. I got my room right avay, but others had to wait some days to get the room they had ordered... The staff vas helpful, but never smiled. Bring your own toiletpaper. (You can get it in the shop on the other side of the road.) This is one of the best hostels I have stayed at!
Andreas From GermanyOn October 12, 2006
Great location, clean, friendly but mostly incompetent staff...
Misha From USAOn June 1, 2006
Location not very good unless you like to walk a lot. Also, not a lot of taxi drivers know how to get there, so make sure you have good directions in Chinese. Otherwise, good hostel for the price.
