City Central Youth Hostel Beijing Reviews
Good hostel, not a youth hostel but a good place to stay Apr 26, 2010
The place is really cheap and it is really well located. You can reach to Tiananmen just by foot.
One thing to mention is that this place is not a youth hostel, it is more like a cheap hotel. You won't find a common room where to relax. There is a nice bar where you can drink and eat some. But it doesn't feel like a common room.
The cleanliness is OK, it ain't the best but it is not bad.
We stayed in rooms with shared bathrooms, they were regularly cleaned by the hotel staff.
Talking about the staff of the place, they where friendly in general terms. And they where willing to help all the time. In our case we where a group of 7 and they made the arrangements for us to stay on a big room.
Something good is that you have free tourist information in the front desk.
If you are going to Beijing on the cheap this may be a good option.
