Great value and very clean
nice people. the mattresses are a bit firm but the price is right and I'd rather compromise on that than cleanliness. Good stuff.

Top quality!
we stayed for five nights in a double room with shared bathroom at the 2F around the central courtyard. clean hostel, very much alive with friendly people of all ages living there too, good kitchen and the best location for an evening walk around the hutongs. we were offered free breakfast during our stay because we had booked for five nights. this came as a very nice surprise for us -- every morning a different dish with toast, eggs, fruit and orange juice, as we like it best. although almost everyone speaks more than enough english to run the business, we encountered one miscommunication regarding the coffee to go with our 'free' breakfast. after a little discussion the argument was settled without further inconvenience. when we checked-out, we received souvenirs from their gift shop. another sign of the fantastic hospitality in this family-run hostel.

Loved it!!
Just recently came home from China and spent our last 4 days at the red lantern house (west yard). We first arrived and dropped our baggage off, checked in then told we were staying at the west yard about a 5 min walk away. We had our bags put on the back of a bike and walked down. Not sure what to expect but when we got there and got our en-suite rooms we were very wrapped. Our 2 boys had a separate room from us not very close but the safety we felt there was great. It was like a home away from home. The atmosphere was great and some of the staff spoke english and were very friendly and helpful. There was an indoor and outdoor courtyard which was very cosy. It was great too because many english speaking people were there from all over the country. The food they offer was also some of the best we tried in China. Try it you will love it!!

Warmly recommended!
This hostel is the most friendliest hostel I have ever been. It's charming and the rooms are very comfortable. I have been there several times and both yards are absolutely worth staying there! I would never choose another place in Beijing!
I found my second home at Red Lantern House, Beijing
Thanks to the wonderful, friendly, and helpful staff of Red Lantern House (especially William, Simon, Kane and Lisa), me and my wife preserve beautiful memories of Beijing. The place breathes with history and exotic atmosphere. The crew is constantly smiling and tries hard to make the guests feel well. The rooms are clean and warm, the food is excellent and trips (to Great Wall at Mutianyu or to a circus performance) match the description. That's why I did not hesitate to book the same place for my parents who just left for their Asian trip. if I'll ever find my way to Beijong again, Red Lantern House it will be!

  One of the best hostels i've been in China. looks very nice and the people who work there are so cool. the area is not very bad. the hostel is located in a Hutong and right next is a cool shopping street.
  Absolutely fantastic hostel. Has a beautifully courtyard with a restaurant. Rooms are clean and comfy. A bit hard to find as the dairy queen place mark that they use as a guide to find it is no longer there. If you want something chinesey without the dirt then this place is great. The food at the restaurant is cheep and very good. Even the coffee is not bad, which is amazing for a Chinese place.

  Fine place to stay right in the middle of old Beijing. Quite close to most of the major attractions (not a walking distance though). The staff is very helpful and friendly and speak some English. If something is not cleaned or changed at the time desired, one can just ask. Everything that a budget traveler might ever need in there in one place -- small trips, books, Internet. Yes, one must lose some of the comforts offered by the bigger hotels, but then why stay there in this case. Bigger hotels are the same everywhere, but Red Lantern House is quite unique.
