            Close to Subway, 5 mins walk to Gulou station. Restaurant and bars around. Nearby to Drum Bell Tower, Houhai and Nanluoguxiang.

            They should provide some amenities such as towel, bath soap/shampoo for the one who stay in the private rooms.

            Is very close to the metro Guloudazhie (line 2). Bell Tower station does not exist in Beijing. Because of this from airport-express train had to take a taxi. (And there is only 3 metro station). Prior to the Forbidden City - about 30 minutes walk. In the next building - McDonalds. So cheap you can have breakfast. Rooms are clean. At the lobby living cute animals - a cat, and 3 dogs

            In the hostel does not have a tour desk. More than once we has been accessed to the staff for help. And book tickets and tour to the Great Wall. Each time They told us that we were looking out ourselves on the Internet. People have a great job - watching movies and walking their dogs. The room is not warming in winter night. And during the day staff opens the window wide. So we came in a frozen room. Wi-fi only in the area the reception. There's always a lot of people, so you are lucky if you find a place.

            Beijing Drum Tower Youth Hostel - very friendly staff and always helpful in solving any problems. Good rooms are clean and comfortable. Good location of the hostel. Walk 10 minutes to the metro station and 10-15 minutes to drive to Tiananmen Square. Near the hostel there are many souvenir shops and various cafes and restaurants as well as a large fruit market.

            The location is wonderful just in the outskirts of the Houhai area. The price is reasonable and the facilities provided is up to standard. This time I lived in a double room and the standard and cleanliness was better than in the shared dormitories.

            Nice staff, willing to help. Location was great. And good price

            The internet kicked me out every 5 min

            central location

            room was not really clean when we arrived there was a hugh spot on the pillow slip and on the blanket, after we complained at the reception they changed the pillow slip but did not change the blanket.For few days it is OK, but not for more then 2-3. The hostel we stayed before was the same good located, but much cleaner for the same price.

            The shared bathrooms were very dirty and smelly. The staff was not really helpful and slightly rude.

            The environment..

            My room and the bathroom were not so clean... but I know it is a backpacker.

            First of all,the location of this hotel is excellent!only 5 minuts walk to metro station! secondly,these are so many fab restaurants around this hotel. Lastly,the pub nearby the hotel is good. Anyway,it's worth for young people who wanna to travel in Beijing,but families and couples are not suitable.

            Wifi is extremely terrible, plz forget the internet when u choose this hotel! The heater does not work very well, very very very very cold in the midnight. Room 201 Room is too small, and everyday around 6:00 I will be waked up by SOMEBODY's loudly speak! The windows cannot be opened, the bath room makes the whole room very wet.

          • Single
            7.8

            Nice English speaking staff which provided tourist info, tips and some organized trips A small lobby where guests can sit and socialize. Location wasn't bad

            The WiFi was awefully slow, overloaded and had lots of disconnections (altought it's a known issue in whole china). The room I've got was dark and poor, the matrass was terrible and I could feel the springs stick in my back, there was no option to open the window and the smell wasn't very fresh.

          • Single
            5.0

            Perfect helpfull staff. Good location.

            The dormitory for 8 people it isnt clean! The room smells. If you have a small budget ok. But if you can pay more go to another place. The toilets and the shower you can use it but the clean it isnt good.
