          Absolutely fabulous! The hostel manager and his wife are so hospitable and helpful. Very comfortable, clean and quirky. A view of local Beijing life.

          This hostel is conveniently located near the forbidden city within a Beijing hutong. It's a small hostel with only 11 rooms facing the inner courtyard where you can relax and enjoy a 3 yuan JinJiang beer. The entire hostel, including rooms, have nice Chinese decorations which gives it a nice overall atmosphere.

          For 380 yuan we had a double room which is an okay price for Beijing. The hostel's food services can be improved, dumplings and breakfast weren't very tasty.

          After staying for 13 nights we were quite satisfied with this hostel and would recommend it to others.

You can only walk one way through the Forbidden City, which is just south of Tiananmen, from south to north and we staying at the northern end hence the long walk.
