The Hostelz.com Review - Genuine, independent review you can trust.
365 Inn is a friendly and welcoming hostel/hotel. There are a lot of rooms available, spread throughout four floors of the building. They're a combination of dormitories, as well as private rooms, creating a great mix of guests. The staff are friendly and helpful, with most having a great understanding of English as well.
The hostel also provides an array of tours and packages, including visits to the Great Wall of China. It's a plus that the hostel offers several tours to the Great Wall, so you can pick which one is the most appropriate in terms of physical requirements and time needed.
Located right beside a popular shopping area, this hostel is situated closely to lots of shops, restaurants, and other hostels. There's so much to see and do just steps away from the hostel. The neighbourhood is also very interesting, as right off the main streets, visitors can find traditional hutong residential living. It's a great blend of tourist and local sights.
Qianmen metro station is the closest to the hostel and it's only about seven minutes' walk away. It's a very popular metro line, and once on the metro, visitors can travel to many attractions easily.
Tiananmen Square and The Forbidden City are both short walks from the hostel (about one-and-a-half kilometers away). The Temple of Heaven is a bit further away, at more than three kilometers, but it's easily walkable or accessible by metro.
Rooms and Bathrooms
This hostel offers a combination of private and dormitory rooms. Dorm rooms range from three, four, six, and ten beds and are either coed or women only. The rooms are clean and roomy, with large lockers available to store an entire large backpack. Each bunk comes with a personal light and a small storage shelf. The only thing is that in some rooms electric plugs are limited. Some dorm rooms only have two electric sockets available to share among four guests.
There are two sets of bathrooms available. On the first floor, there is a women's and men's bathroom, with individual toilet stalls and shower stalls. It's definitely tight here and can get dirty really quickly.
On the second floor is a coed bathroom -- there are two shower stalls and two toilet stalls available for use. This bathroom is a lot cleaner than the ones on the first floor. An attendant can often been seen cleaning this bathroom throughout the day.
The hostel has a lovely bar/restaurant on the main floor, as well as a small front porch. There's often a lot of people here in the evening enjoying a beer, working or socializing. However, the restaurant doesn't stay open late -- it's usually cleared out and closed by midnight. There is also a large locker room to store your luggage, as well as smaller lockers to rent out for the day.
365 Inn is a great hostel in which to stay when visiting Beijing. It's close to lots of attractions, restaurants, shops, and the metro. The staff are really friendly and helpful and can converse eloquently in English.

365 Inn— is housed in a building with over 150 years of history, where the modern walls meet the old pillars from the time of its construction. Staying with us is to live inside Beijing as a Beijing Citizen, a true experience that cannot be missed. Excellently located in the heart of city, we — 365 Inn, provide you with the perfect base for sightseeing by day and partying by night. All of Beijing major hot spots are easily accessible on foot, thus saving you the cab fare home at night.
Even you can’t miss the tours we offered to less tourists section of the Chinese Wall. Or just have a cup of coffee to relax by sitting out side of 365 inn and shower the sunshine.
Still ask why should you stay with us? Please just join us and find your home away from home. Our treatment of guest is 'Don't Walk in front of me, I May not Follow; don’t walk behind me, I May not Lead; Go and Walk Beside me, to be My Friend'
For Chinese mainland, there is a configured local policy of Beijing: If you prefer to stay in a dorm room, please book ALL BEDS in a same dorm as private even you are solo , or just please book the private room instead. thanks for all of your understanding.
