morning market at front door
taxis struggled to find it until armed with hostel brochure (dowwnload map or directions before you go)
+ Staff: good Engilish, always ready to help, haven't charged us for very early checkin (3 a.m.) + Location: not very easy to find at the first time, but really near to subway and you can easily reach center of the city by bus.
- beds: very very hard. p.s. We stayed in several hostels in China in different cities - all below 4 stars, even Ibis with 3 stars has hard beds. So it's not feature of this current hotel, it's just feature of China. - cold in the room: heater isn't enough, it is warm only if it works all day, but it can easily switch off by cleaner and in the evening you'll get a surprise.
Helpful staff fixed a blown bulb ASAP, large supermarket nearby, walking distance to Forbidden City's north gate (20 mins), subway stop is two major lines and is very close to points of interest
The cafe had no chinese dishes, the hostel was hard to find even using provided directions, the hostel's only sign (neon) was sometimes off which didn't help, the surrounding streets are used for a morning market which gets very busy so bear in mind for morning departures, our twin room was on the first floor next to the bar and had no external window and was very noisy.
The staff is amazing. They helped us with all the questions we had and also with booking some plane tickets.The place is cozy and they have a very nice bar/caffe.
The staff she is name is carri, she's very nice and helpful and understand english very well. She help us so many things. Hotel near dongsi station exit D
The heater doesnt work. Room so small. Breakfast standart. To find this hotel very difficult and many local people doesnt know where the hotel is.
the room is not warm enough
Staff was very helpful. They know a great place to eat pekin duck at a reasonable price. We did thr great wall tour with them and also the kungfu theatre play. Excellent! Don't miss out. Good location to go into town and very warm and comfortable bedroom.
The pub downstairs doesn't offer chinese food. Difficult to find at first.
Cute place, staff speaks english, close to subway
Our couple bed was actually 2 single beds put together, hot water didn't work well and the bathroom floor got all wet because there was no box.
I stayed in a small single room, just enough space for a big bed, tv, table, small cupboard and a rather large en-suite bathroom which was clean. The room was cleaned every day and sheets and towels changed every other day. My room was next to the wifi router so for me the wifi worked perfectly. The location of the hostel was good, good connections by metro and bus. Morning market was also fun, and it starts literally at the doorstep of the hostel. The tour they offered to Mutianyu Great wall was very good.
The room was COLD when the A/C was off. Woke up in the morning to the smell of fried food. Fixed the problem though by asking for an extra towel to lay under the door to block the airway. The staff wasn't imo as friendly as the previous reviews suggested, but they were OK I guess.
The staffs are really nice and helpful, hot shower, good wifi in the room, the location is good near subway, supermarket, pharmacy, etc
Dark surrounding area at night
Good location for subway lines.
Subpar facilities. There are better options in Beijing for the same price, but not much better. Worth considering if you're planning on using public transportation.
place, peoples, area.
so far nil
STAFF Kudos to Lili and other staff who were very accommodating even when we arrived so early in the morning. Most staff know how to speak English. They were also flexible with adjustments in our reservation. They were also helpful in providing directions to good dinner places around the hostel area and getting taxis for us. No hassle at all. TOURS They offer great value tours. I highly recommend the Mutianyu tour + Acrobatic Show which includes the transportation and admission fees. The hostel staff took care of the arrangements. Location: Near Dongsi Subway Station Line 5&6 Near Food places
- staff are very helpful and kind, they patiently helped book my tickets to Xi'an during the National holidays - location is great, a nice 20 min walk to the Palace museum and within the Dongsi hutong areas, great to explore
- lack of coffee/ drinks with the breakfast menu, need to order separately, they should really change that
Great value and good location near all the attractions.
A little hard to find initially so make sure you have the hotel phone number with you!
Helpful and friendly staff, central location, quiet at night, food available at the cafe, easy access to supermarket, atm, etc., ease of booking via internet, booking of tours on site, free wifi in the lobby and cafe.
location walkable to forbidden city area and subway . Staff were so lovely and spoke good English .very good value for money and vkean
Rooms bit cramped some had tiny windows
I can recommend this hostel to everyone with a low Budget. People are very nice and one evening they even invited us to try to make our own dumplings - for free.
Just next to the hostel was a construction, which was very loud - from early in the morning
location was great, the private room was good, def. suggest getting a room with your own bathroom. The air conditioner was great for the room. The TV was huge, but didn't use it. The dumpling party was fun, met some good people. It is very close to the metro and just down the rode a little. The Super market at the metro stop is great for picking up water.
The staff starts talking and working at 5am, and it wakes you up. The walls are thin. The food area is the only "hang out" space and isn't used often other than for the dumpling party. The evening staff speaks english well, but the morning much less so. Directions on the website weren't totally accurate. You exit Dongsi exit E, then as you come up, turn RIGHT, then go to the last arch. You'll see the red letters (easier to see at night) of Happy Dragon.
Location - 5min walk to Dongsi Station Staff is nice and helpful They serve all kinds of snacks/drinks at their cozy bar (also decent breakfast) Rooms are very basic, but you'll be outside anyway all day exploring Beijing. Oh and it's cheap... so you get what you pay for.
Don't expect anything luxurious Wifi could be better. Rooms could be cleaner. AC was rattling all the time and it looked like it could fall down any moment (like the lamp did, on the bed ;)) I mentioned the fallen lamp / leaking shower: wasn't fixed during our 6 night stay
Everyone spoke English. Good facilities: front desk 24/7, water to drink could be bought 24/7, nice bar/restaurant with long opening times Close to subway station. Working AC, wifi, warm shower. They sold a map of Beijing that was good, a relief after a useless map I had got from a 4 star hotel before.
Somewhat hidden. I was happy a local friendly lady brought me there, else I would not have found it. The room was more like a box, no outside window, it just fitted the bed and a little table for the television, my bag filled the rest of the room.
Its the best place to stay, and everything is really close from them even a ATM, its my fourth time there so you can imagine how I like it! everybody is very Kind and treat you very very well , everybody speaks english and can help you with questions about Beijing,
Hot water in the bathroom. Large private rooms. Excellent location and good selection in the restaurant.
They advertise free meals twice a week. We stayed 8 nights and never got a free meal. On bbq night- which is advertised as free, we were told we had to pay. When we pointed out that it was supposed to be free they said "no one ever stays long enough to notice that it is not free" exact words. Wifi does not work at all in the rooms, bar or lobby. Hard beds. Really expensive for the quality of the place.
Perfect location, friendly English speaking staff.
Really great stay here! The PERFECT location for exploring Beijing - the surrounding streets and hulongs were so lovely and it was within walking distance of all the major sights, plus close by to metro for those further afield. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, thank you Happy Dragon for such a great stay! Thoroughly recommended!
