We stayed in a private double room at this hostel for 3 nights in September. The room itself was huge, good bathroom facilities, decent air con, bottled water provided by the hostel which was a nice touch. Main bonus is the location - a few mins walk from Guloudajie metro station

This place is really nice and cheap. It's near to downtown, so if you want to get to Tiananmen square it will take about 30-40 minutes. There is also metro station near it.
Very comfortable rooms, nice staff, wi-fi is also normal.

They cancelled my reservation tonight (Friday, after 5 p.m.) - I'll arrive to Beijing on Monday.
I had to find new accommodation - with the short notice the cheapest is duble price (I originally booked in June to get a good price).
Meanwhile you can still book rooms there on book

Hi, i would like to know if there is a possibility to get invitation from the hostel so i can get visa, or if there is no need! Many thanks Cheers
Hi In England we had to show our emails confirming flight and that the hostel was booked and submit it with £180 to apply for a visa -don't know if that's the same for you in Spain

Do you offer airport transport from the airport to the hostel at 2am?
"No lifts.So u will have to carry ur luggage"
"You could fine something better around"
"I would recommend choosing the queen private rooms, the capsule were really small."
"Spring for a private. There's a little extra room for you to get about, and you don't need to leave your room to have a shower."
"We were in room 302 and is a little small. Rooms ending with 8 or 5 are in the corner and would probably be quieter and bigger."
US$31 - US$53 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
