  1. Emma From England On November 30, -0001

    We had a lovely time staying at this wonderful hostel. The location is perfect and the staff very helpful. We would recommend it to anyone traveling to Beijing.

  2. Nina From Australia On November 30, -0001

    A lovely local place to stay in a real (non touristy) hutong- on the very handy inner city metro line (line 2).

  3. susann From Sweden On November 30, -0001

    very goog place to stay at:)))

  4. Virginie From Belgium On November 30, -0001

    Very typical but a little bit far from the metro station. Recommended if you are not in a hurry but not recommanded if you want to visit as much as possible in a very short stay

  5. Julia From Germany On November 30, -0001

    Really not easy to find, no public kitchen, nice and helpfull staff. Stayed in deluxe room.

  6. Eric From USA On November 30, -0001

    I am a Chinese born American who has never been to Beijing and has never stayed in a hostel before. My stay at Templeside was one of the things that made my stay in Beijing unforgettable. Talking to the staff and other guests was fun, though you have to initiate conversation. Also, I can speak relatively fluent Chinese so that helped communication, though the staff know English well enough. Fun and novel place at a convenient location.

  7. Hester From USA On November 30, -0001

    Nice location and rooms around courtyard. Very safe and seclued from road. My only disappointment was that they were not able to arrange a taxi from the hotel to the railway station. Luckily I could carry all my bags to the main road to find a taxi.

  8. MENGYUAN From China On November 30, -0001

    It couldn't be any better in Beijing for such lovely Chinese characteristic accommodation!

  9. Kai From Germany On November 30, -0001

  10. Yuki From Japan On November 30, -0001

    The room was really good and staffs were very kind to us.We could make dumplings and eat them with Bobby and other staffs for free!! The location of the hostel is a little bit difficult to find,but once you're used to the town it's very convinient.Metro station is about 10 minutes walk from the hostel.

  11. Rohan From Australia On November 30, -0001

  16. May From Australia On November 30, -0001

    Beijing's September is beautiful, but this guesthouse make me feel even more fantastic. The old house hidden in hutong with a garden is so quiet, calm, elegant and beautiful. Everywhere is very neat and clean, and the staff are really great. Thanks booby, thanks for all the help. Highly recommended place!

  17. Simon From Canada On November 30, -0001

    Templeside is well located, clean, fairly priced... what more could I say! The owner offers all the service you could possibly ask for: airport pick up, internet, ticket reservation, you name it. They also organise private and semi private tour that gives you an authentics look at the Beijing area, no flag no microphone , no big crouds, the real thing. Ho yeah, and most importantly, it gives you the opportunity to enter a genuine Beijing hutong. To be realistic, it's a bit hard to find and the breakfast could be better.

  18. John From England On November 30, -0001

    so lovely a little hostel,clean and nice. not like others in a mordern building, it is a garden house in a old Hutong, very Chinese, Very Beijing. The owner and his wife are so nice couple, much fun there, I like it.
