    We stayed at the Beijing City Centre Youth Hostel. We chose the hotel based on its location just across the road from the train station we arrived at from Mongolia and only 20m from the metro for sightseeing, it is in a great location. The hostel is a strange hostel/hotel spread over 6 floors the bottom 4 referred to as the hostel and the top 2 the hotel although anybody can just use the hostel facilities. After so long on the train we opted for a double private with en suite, the last time we had our own bathroom was Berlin! A nice room with good facilities but badly let down by the poor internet, strange smell in the bathroom and the bed, which is currently winning the most uncomfortable bed award. We wanted to use the kitchen facilities but were put off but the cockroach going for a walk across the sideboard! Reception staff were pretty useless and unhelpful with most things unless it's taking your money. Nice room shame about the bed which really lets it down.

    The last day, Hannah & I came here and, while it IS indeed noisy and not extremely cheap, at least it was clean and very, very convenient--right across the road from the main train station. People have unfairly attacked this place, I do believe. It work.

    This place is about as bad as it gets
    The staff are rude, unhelpful, obnoxious
    This is supposed to be an international hostel, no one speaks english
    They just look at you with a blank expression on their face
    They just refer you to a scrap of paper
    They make no effort at all with helping anyone
    Expensive for what you get, ie nothing
    The beds are solid, hardly worth having a mattress on it
    avoid this place like the plague
    A better HOTEL is only a few Yuan dearer
