Horrible "hostel", bar was always closed, staff doesn't know more than 2 words in english, bathrooms smell of piss, however location is good (a hutong 30 mins walking at the south of the tiananmen square) and it's a safe place.

Hardly a hostel but a not fully converted hotel, there are real hostels around. Location at a first glance doesn't seem convenient (looks like an old suburb) but if you walk a bit it ends being nice. No tourist information provided at any moment, at all. Staff is not very friendly. Paid locker room

Beautiful, very clean, friendly staff, nice restaraunt, good social atmosphere. Minuses: courtyard open to street, bathrooms often out of TP, no kitchen or fridge for guests, hard for a non smoker to escape the smell of cigarettes.

I would like to say that we have stayed many times at hostelling int properties, most of them have been very enjoyable , this time we were very disappointed on the service, the staff don't speak a word of English nor they try to help you with the most basic information about the area. We got all the information at other hostels nearby , they were very kind to help us. The location is good and safe too.

Overall, i liked my stay at this hostel in Beijing, but some things could be better. Even though they provided a wi fi signal for internet, they don't have any public computer that guests can use. I didn't have a smartphone or a laptop with me, so i could not access the internet at the hostel.There was a HI statement on the wall of the the toilet regarding towels, and even though i did leave my towels hanging, they were still changed and washed for nothing.

As a Muslim backpacker, I like this Far East Hotel because there are more than 20 Muslim restaurants and food stalls around the hotel... so not difficult to get halal foods.. Although nearby the hotel are busy shopping streets but the hotel itself is located in a considerably quiet area and peaceful neighborhood.. excellent.. Most staff are friendly especially cleaning staff... extremely friendly.. will come back to stay in this hotel..
