Great place, full of chinese culture and atmosphere. Based within traditional hutong's area which makes this hostel wonderful place to stay. This was our first stop during our trip to China, we were welcomed with traditional chinese dinner and lovely hosts! Greetings for Sammy and Yang! :-) I wonder do you work there still? ;-) Greetings from Poland! Ola&Wiktor

This was our third stay with our three children. We live in Tianjin, just a short train ride away, and after our first stay we decided that we absolutely must return at least every spring and fall, just to be with the people again and in that atmosphere. When we first arrived, and we were walking from the subway station,...

I have stayed here for several nights during the summer of 2012. It was my first stop in China. I really enjoyed my stay at Inner City. The staff were welcoming and enthousiastic and the atmosphere of the hostel was very vibrant and safe. During my stay the other guests were mainly of Chinese origin and I was invited to...

We stayed two nights while visiting Beijing. We really enjoyed having the common area to relax, read and play board games in the evening. The staff were friendly and generally helpful. We were told breakfast was included but were a bit disappointed that it was just a help-yourself toast and hot soy milk. One thing we really enjoyed was the...

Inner City is a simple and small Chinese hostel in a hutong in west central Beijing. My room was small and cluttered, with a tiny bathroom (a large shower with a built in WC and basin would be the best description) and a slightly uncomfortable bed and hygiene and cleanliness are definitely below Western standards. It is relatively cheap and...

i stayed there for about one week with my friend during March. We lived in a 4-bed room first and then moved to a two-bed room two days later. The location is good, it's in a very central place, close to lots of tourism spots; The environment is good too, a very typical Chinese old Siheyuan, peaceful at night and...

Advantage Very friendly and helpful staff, try their best to meet your needs. Room and sheets are fairly clean, bed is comfortable. The hostel is very traditional Beijing 'Siheyuan', anyone who wants to experience this home-like old Beijing style could try this out. Disadvantage Location is like 10mins walking distance to the metro station which doesnt seem an advantage to...

Firstly, there are some really idiotic 'terrible' ratings for this place. If you do some research before your trip then you'll be a lot less disappointed by your own over estimations. Secondly, if you want hotel standards then book a hotel. Anyway: My girlfriend and I stayed at Inner city for 2 weeks over Chinese New Year 2013 and were...

We stayed in innercity for four nights, then we left lots of our luggage with Sammy (she had no problem with us doing this and we felt very safe leaving our stuff in the hostel) for one night when we went to stay by the wall, then we came back for one more night before flying to Xi'an. The help...

Inner city hotel was great place to stay after our amazing trip around Beijing city. Hotel was simple designed: room, bathroom facilities and restaurant but we got the things we paid, it was reallt worthy if you would choose a cheap hotel in Beijing city.
