Score from 337 reviews Very good
very strategic and easy to find, cheap dorm room rate
wifi is weak at 3rd floor, shared bathroom is limited, bar is noisy at night
The airport shuttle bus didn't stop in front of Helen hotel anymore. It's better if they could update the information.
Really delicious coffee, the staff was very nice and helpful. They have a great bar in the basement and the two courtyards are very comfortable and a nice place to sit outside in the evening.
There is a huge construction work in the building just nearby and its really loud all day, starting at 7am.
very noisy door downstairs in front of the bar
Good Position, nice atmosphere and good western restaurant
The room is a little small but the real problem is the bed...so hard that the back was hurting when we woke up. The volume of the music is too loud during the night, they should keep the hotel quite at least after 12. Staff is friendly but organization is not really good, we book a taxi to go to the airport at 5 in the morning and paid for this service directly at the reception. When we went to check out they didn't know anything about the taxi. When finally a taxi came and we arrived at the airport the taxi driver asked me for money again, so I had to spend 20 minutes to argue with him trying to explain that everything was already paid (I speak chinese and was fine but for someone that can't speak is not a really nice situation)
Helpful staff who speak english well. Hostel also has a good atmosphere, decorated in an old chinese courtyard style with a cafe and a couple common areas. The hostel also has a massive bar downstairs that felt like a proper bar and not just a hostel bar. On one night the place was filled with Chinese locals which was interesting. Surprisingly the hostel wasn't too noisy late at night with good sound insulation between bar and the rest of the hostel.
Wifi was hit and miss as in all of china and bathroom smelled moldy, but again as in all china. Cafe food is okay but a little pricey and not as nice as we've had in some other hostels.
Very friendly staff, they can speak English very well and will help you by booking flight tickets or something. They also have good breakfasts, and the lobby is very cozy.
Overall stay was enjoyable and the bar is a nice addition to the place even if it's a tad pricey. Comfy beds and helpful staff.
The toilets convenient to my room weren't the nicest, but not enough to want to stay elsewhere.
Friendly staff, just 5 minutes walking from the Wall of the city and walking distance from other monuments & the amazing muslim night market. They have a fantastic pub downstairs with good music, sometimes live, where you can mix with locals or meet other backpackers.
Beds could be a bit more comfortable and the ensuite bathroom could have a shower courtain.
The design of the hotel is traditional and is very bright and inviting. The cafe serves a good spread of western breakfasts (if you are sick of Asian style breakfast and need a break). The bar downstairs has good drink specials and the noise does not travel up to the rooms. The staff are more than willing to help with any questions you may have including places to eat, where to walk, and will even help you book tours. They also organise nightly events such as dumpling making which keep you busy!
The beds were hard, and the wifi is hard to access anywhere but on the downstairs level which can be frustrating.
Amazing personel. All of them spoke english and were very helpful. Free english maps at the hotel, nice bar, extra activities. Place which knows what travellers need. Lots of other foreign travellers. Perfect location next to the south gate. Good connection with the train station (bus 603) and with fast trains station ( by subway). Worth paying more comparing to other hostels.
A little bit too expensive optional trips. We did Panda rescue centrum trip and were happy but other trips organized ourself.
The location is good The pub is nice
We stayed at room 102, mext to the pub and next to the reception so it was very noisy!!!!!!! Theat was a big problem to sleep the beds very hard!!!!
Staff were great, very helpful and friendly.
It was very noisy with the band playing "Every" night from 10pm -1am and then revellers would often be very noisy in the courtyards till around 3am. Wi Fi was intermittent.
The Location of this hostel is great. Most of the things are in Walking distance and the staff is very helpfull with booking tours or answer all your questions :). It is perfect when you travel alone as you will meet many People there and they also have some activities in the evening.
As there is a bar inside the hostel, it can be very loud during the night. Make sure you bring earplugs ;)
Had a great vibe. An awesome location. The cafe was really cool and I loved just hanging out in the common areas.
Wifi was hard to connect to in my room. And they were out of the local beer when I was there. Keep that sucker stocked!
Great atmosphere and brillant location. Really nice and helpful staff
The building site next door and having to go downstairs for a shower which didn't lock from the top floor WiFi was pretty much non existent in the room.
One staff (the man with great English who works during the day) was extremely helpful. Not only he arranged our last minute tour, but also send us our property which we left at the hostel by mistake in a day.
We saw 3 different rooms and all of them were noisy to the point you felt you were in a club. The noise comes from the club downstairs to the hostel and goes on till 1 AM every night. It is very difficult to get a good night sleep.
Helpful staff that can speak english
Good value for money, nice bar downstairs
Got in at 4am, staff drunk police there and told to wait while they sorted it out. Not happy that we were told to wait!

Bathrooms could do with an upgrade.
- English speaking staff - Traveller's café inside the complex
- Bar beneath the hotel: during night very noisy due to (drunken) non-hotel people coming from the bar
