Favourable location, 5 minutes from the metro station. Not far from the city center. Curious and interestinf hutong district, safe feeling even late at night. The hostel has all basic facilities, nice dining room. Friendly staff speaking English. The hostel offers different day trips and excursions and attendance of local shows. We took the opportunity to go to the Great Wall that met all our expectations. We booked a separate room there which was quite cosy but shabby with a crystal walls' bathroon. Different drinks are offered all day long at moderate prices. Lot of shops and eating places nearby. Worth staying there if you are not a fan of lusury hotels. Good value for money. Would recommend it if you want to stay close to the city center and feel the hutong atmosphere.
Ordering a taxi is a service payable to the hostel. Could have been cheaper if you did it yourself. Do not accept credit cards but it seems to be usual in China. Week wi-fi. But anyway no actually serious complaints.
Otherwise, the staff was really friendly and ready to help, the location great. There is also some baggage storage, which allowed us to go away from Beijing without our huge luggage.
We stayed in different rooms in this hotel, having different reservation. Some of the rooms were a bit too humid.
The location was very good, near a metro station. If you like being in a hutong (I did), you'll like it even more. The staff was nice and spoke good English.
The wifi was very weak, non-existent most of the time. The (otherwise nice and helpful) staff insisted that my VPN was the problem. Now that I've stayed at another place (with a decent wifi) it's clear that they were wrong. Also, the room looks so shabby that you get a feeling it's dirty even when it isn't. All in all, way to expensive for the service provided.
Staff and the food
I am great friends with their staff and their owner since many years. Far above helpful and well organised, they take care personally and sincerely.
With a stay at Lucky Family Hostel in Beijing (Downtown Beijing), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Wangfujing Street and Sanlitun.
