I chose this hostel because of a tip from a friend, and it was an excellent choice. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean with freshly washed sheets given to me upon arrival. The staff spoke both English and Chinese which was very helpful as I had many questions about what to see in Beijing. They even have tours to the Great Wall, and even though they were a little pricey I found a great group of backpackers from England to share the adventure with. The area that the hostel is in is very cool and is found near the Hutongs of Beijing. You can get away from the crowd and explore the nearby area on foot or on bike very easily. I would definitely stay at the Beijing Downtown Backpackers Hostel again!
