Info & Description

About our hostel
The Sweet Garden House is located in a nice, quiet and very comfortable Hutong courtyard. The courtyard,Chinese-style garden have been recently renovated and offers an authentic traditional Beijing lifestyle lodging at affordable, if not hard to beat in terms of value for money, prices. The Sweet Garden House is conveniently located in No.19 Dongsi Qi Tiao of Dongcheng District of Beijing. The Sweet Garden House was opened in September by creative people who have been in the hotel, hostelling and touring business for many years and have combined their shared knowledge to offer you, the guest, the best possible service.

Walking into a Beijing HuTong is like a stroll through history and only in a HuTong can you experience real Chinese/Beijing lifestyle, which today is a fast developing city loosing much of its traditional face - not in the HuTongs and our hostel, Sweet Garden House preserves this history.

When arriving in the Sweet Garden House you will instantly forget the noisy and crowded streets of Beijing and be able to relax - listening to the birds whistling above and watching the HuTong life outside. HuTongs are a very social place. You will see people in the narrow HuTong alleys chatting and playing while drinking and just generally social in these quite alleys.

The Sweet Garden House has new, nice, tidy and clean facilities & equipment. There are in total 20 rooms with air-conditions for guests, including single rooms, double rooms, four and six person dorms. Each room is equipped with a security alarm, fire alarms and electricity plugs. On each floor of the guest house and in the garden there are clean toilets, showers and washing rooms. There is also the reception room (lobby), a kitchen, laundry room, TV area, public telephones (also for international calls) and the peaceful rest area in the garden. Of course you can also surf the Internet in the hostels reception room.

Our helpful staff will always be ready to help you have the best possible time in Beijing which is why the hostel has staff on duty 24 hours per day, which also means there is no curfew or lockout. Your room can be opened for you at any time of the day. Of course our staff will also make sure that all guests can sleep peacefully throughout the night.

  1. Olivier From Switzerland On November 30, -0001

    The rooms were clean but it wasn't the case of the bathroom which were dirty, small, etc. And the organisation of the satff was awfull : when I arrived there, they said there wasn't any room any more (finally I could stay), then evereday there was another problem... The only good point of the hostel is the situation. Not easy to find, but in a nice neighberhood. But I wouldn't go there any more. I recommend the Far East International Youth Hostel which is much better for the same price.

  2. Fempje From Belgium On November 30, -0001

    The hostel is a nice place in a nice neighbourhood, but they still have to learn how to run it. Bathrooms aren't cleaned and can't really count on the staff. However the rooms are spacious with good and clean beds!!

  3. Alexandra From Germany On November 30, -0001

    The Hostelcostumer working not in the Hostel. because of this the moneytransfer isn't per internet sure for the people, they would like to have one Bankpaper or they say you must pay all.
