It's an amazing courtyard with cosy nice rooms. Only 5min walk from subway line 5, 10min from a hilarious food street, 15min from the Lama Temple; but its quiet and calm living here. Trying the local lifestyle by living in Hutong, in local-style rooms and local food, it is so worthy!It was snowing the days I was there. Everything was...

Dear friend, It is obvious that your review is not friendly. I want to know what happen about you. Laught at you, even if I should not do that as owner. I can only say "you never know beijing, you never know Hutong culture." According to what you said, You want to pay around 350RMB/night to sleep in the Forbidden...

This place is amazing especially if you want a traditional Chinese experience. It's at the end of a hutong tucked away in the cutest little courtyard. We visited in January where outside temperatures were -10c and the hostel was so warm with adequate heating. The rooms are adorable and so clean. The staff are the best and are very knowledgeable...

Stayed here in July 2011, a bit late on my reviews. It was hard to find at first, the taxi dropped me off and pointed to this ally. I had an old lady and and old gentlemen walk me to it, both didn't speak a word in English and were going off the note in Chinese I was holding. And...

Flowering Hostel is a great place - it's placed in the very heart of Beijing, nearby most of the famous places and still, it's peaceful and quiet. Living there you can enjoy the traditional Chinese accommodation (rooms are the former houses Chinese lived in). It's also clean and warm (we visited it in winter) But the strongest point of this...

We were "forced" to stay here for 4 nights becos' of the non-refundable policy. We wanted to move to somewhere else after the first night. Although you can experience the local housing and the location is considered as convenient which is close to metro, Gui street and Nanluoguxiang, it is located in a hidden hutong which is not easy to...

We stayed here for 4 nights for a long weekend and were booked into a so called standard rm for two, which was indeed very very tiny. Even for petite gals like us, we found it hard to turn around and always bumped into each others!! And the worst thing is the setting in the tiny rm wasn't that handy...

Not sparkling clean or new and shiny but if you want the best hutong location in Beijing and terrific service try this place. Bicycle bells and noodle stands abound and there is an authentic atmosphere that is charming. Close to the metro and many attractions too. Especially great if you like cats!

I spent nine nights in this hostel in April 2012, when I was in Beijing to do some research. I had first booked only three nights there, then I moved to a more expensive hutong hotel near the forbidden city. After only one night in that anonymous place I hurried back to the Flowering house hostel, where I felt as...

The Flowering House Hostel is close to a strip of restuaurants that come to life at night and the metro line 5 is a short walk away. That said, I doubt there are many places in inner city Beijing that are not surrounded by public transport and places to eat, so there is nothing overly special about that. I'm not...

“My friend had the "comfort room" which was right next to my standard room, and his room was big enough that 2 people could stay in it. The standard room would be too cramped for 2.”
