Below are some comments from our guests:
***I stayed here for 7 nights from 1st to 8th March 2010 with 35 others, mostly college students and colleagues. I chose FarEast because it received fairly good reviews and I have no regrets whatsoever having to stay here. The hotel/hostel is located in a hutong area and near Liulichang, the famous Qianmen shopping street, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City and easy accessible to buses, taxis and subway station.
I must say the marketing team of FarEast namely Sally and Wendy had done a wonderful job ensuring our stay here would be smooth sailing. They would go miles delivering their service, and in our case, they accompanied us as far as Tianjin just to make sure that we manage to catch our flight back home. This was due to the snow that fall unexpectedly and caused the closure of the road to Tianjin so we had to take the speed train instead of bus.
I would highly recommend this hotel for a clean budget room and excellent service. Definitely will stay here again if I were to travel Beijing!
*** I want to thank the Beijing Far East International Youth Hostel for perfect lodging during my 6-day stay in Beijing! The hostel, its staff and the day trips and activities it organised were great, and the location and atmosphere second to none! Once again thanks a lot
*** This is a great 'hostel', more of a hostel really. Rooms are cleaned every day and it has every service you could need - internet, laundry and a tour office which can organise you trips to the Great Wall etc. The location is perfect - in the middle of the old part of Beijing.We spent the first few nights here in another part of town and this area is much safer and more fun, I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Beijing for the first time.
***The entire staff at Far East is so incredibly helpful! Having a tourist office inside the hostel was definitely useful, and they're really good at explaining how to get around the city. It's within walking distance to both Tianamen Sq. and the Forbidden City, and the shops along the alleyways are so much cheaper than the silk market! We found that out a little too late. The restaurant on the first floor is really good, and the cafe at the bottom floor is also really convenient. Make sure you stay in the main hostel, not in the court yard!
*** fantastic travel desk and massage facilities - staff very friendly. great free internet service and good breakfast buffet - constantly restocked. great!
***The great food and excellent internet facilites provided by the hostel make life very comfortable and with only a 10 minute walk to the nearest underground station, or a 20 min walk through some very interesting streets leading to Tiananmen square, the location is quite central. I've stayed in this Hostel 3 times now and will definately stay there again.
***Absolutely fantastic! Extremely nice people, very helpfull, good tours and EXCELLENT massages! Loved it and would definitely stay there again. Just one thing: it would be nice with a few strictly female/male rooms. But apart from that it was all more than good!
*** Better location it's imposible! Nothing better than being in this fantastic hutong. In front of the hostel, there's a fantasic bar-cafe, where you can eat for a reasonable price. I would return!
