The hostel is good but most of the comments are biased due to the fact that they give you a free coffee if you write a good comment
nice and english speaking staff, room was quiet ok, location is good (near Dongsi Station)
The location is good because it is near the subway satation (Dongsi). Staff are friendly and helpful. One good thing also is that there are a lot of food shops near the hotel and a grocery shop. I stayed there for 4 nights, got a room with shared bathroom and I like it because it clean.
Wow all was excellent
the location of 161 hostel is close to metro station, thus it was very easy to get around the city of Beijing. also the the triple room we have stayed in was clean and spacious.
there was a service charge of 15% which was not stated on booking.com's hostel page. It is mentioned in reservation details but I have never faced such a charge for my previous bookings from booking.com. I think it should be explicitly mentioned on the front page. there was a deposit of 200 RMB, which was also not mentioned.
Good localisation (30 minutes walk to Forbidden City & Tienanmen Square). Close to subway station & a big grocery store. 2 nice restaurants within 10 meteres from the entrance. Rooms are very basic (no wardrobe) & small but ok. Friendly staff.
location and the place
there was not toilet paper in the toilets and the towels were very small
close to city center, subway and wanfujing street, free internet access and wifi, friendly staff
some very noisy guests, constant smashing of doors between 11pm and 7am; only 2 computers for internet-access, sometimes faucet didn't work properly
The staff were very friendly and helpfull. The rooms and the shared bathroom were very clean and the hotel location was excellent, less than 5 min walk to the subway and supermarket.
The location is very good, close to Dongsi Subway station. staffs are very nice and good command of english.
wifi in the room is too slow and can't get some website
