Far East YH is situated near to the subway station and bus stop. Here around, there is a supermarket and local dining room and stalls, I was satisfied. Beijing Opera theater is located in the place within a 10-minute walk. Location is the best.

This is not my idea of a "hostel" it's actually just a hotel. It says there's a cafe/pub there but it wasn't open any of the 4 days I was there. Was tricky to find but the location was on a cool Backstreet in a neighborhood full if music and art shops. Clean room, but again, just a hotel not a hostel style environment. Can only connect one device to WiFi so choose wisely. If your looking to socialize I'd go elsewhere, but if your lookin for a clean room in a neat area this place is just that

Teniamos reserva en dólares, pero nos hicieron pagar en yuanes. Pagué con lo que tenía encima, y el funcionario puso muy mala cara cuando le di monedas para completar el valor más el depósito de garantía (que en ningún lado está especificado). Mas tarde, el mismo individuo, a una amiga sin reserva, le pidió por una cama, 4 veces más de lo que aparecía en la web. Y tras varios minutos de reírse, cuando se le preguntó por otro lugar cercano, le ofreció el precio real. Una verguenza.

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.
