Fun public spaces, good value
The basement room was snug but fine. We got cold and asked for a blanket since there's no heat. We were there 5 days so we got tired of the hot pot every morning. We ate hard cooked eggs and toast one day and just walked down to McDonalds another. Front desk staff made joking comments about me when they thought I didn't hear...not good customer behavior. Located midway between 2 metro stations.

Value, Fun, Access to local businesses
Mrt Ximen is about 15 minutes walk, lots of local businesses near by for shopping, breakfast, and fun. Great Chinese hotpot breakfast and excellent service personnel. the double bunk bed room was quite small but met the needs for two nights. My kids liked the museum style of the hotel.

Good hostel
Had a great experience at this hostel. The room was clean with no mosquitos, bed was comfy, and had a good hot shower. Only complaint and a minor one was that check-in was a little slow.

Location & Breakfast is great! Room is too small, no place for luggage. Usually, 2 free bottle of water from any other hotel, but this hotel only give you 1 bottle because only one guy stay.

I will definitely be back! The hotel has a very unique and modern atmosphere. The staff is great. My room was on the bottom floor with no windows but that was fine for me. Who needs a view when you should be out exploring the city?! The room itself was very clean and very comforting. I loved this hotel so much I wanted to live there permanently! You can't go wrong!
