This hostel is located in the heart of the city, couple of minutes to the metro.
The staff are so nice and happy to share any information.
Very clean, delicious food and bar.
They have the best tour to the Great Wall and other historical places.

Good location with 2 subway line near by. Subway line 5 and 6 are around the corner. WanFuJing, Tenamen Square are near by. Hostel facilities are old but clean. Easy to get good food as a few restaurants are just 100 meters away. The is also a wet market which operate till night near by. Wifi is slow and signal is poor.

Nice staff and very good location - close to the subway. Small but comfortable rooms for a short stay (air conditioning). They organize tours to diverse sites, even outside Beijing (Tibet, for example).

Happy Dragon Hostel is conveniently located close to Dongsi metro station in a lively hutong area and the city highlights, including the Forbidden City, are nearby. Friendly staff, 24/7 available, fluctuating English skills. Rooms a bit run down, but convenient with hot shower and AC. It takes you 45 min/ 100 yuan to arrive at the International Airport - without heavy traffic. Unluckily, the Wifi signal is really weak/ nonexistent, despite several requests, this did not improve within our 6 day stay.
