(Hostel website: www.templeside.com)
Probably the most special and original local hostel in Beijing, The hostel is so fantastic. It hides behind the street, deeply and quietly in a Hutong (historical narrow alley) and Si He Yuan (a kind of old style Chinese house), full of Beijng’s local taste. It impresses with its beautiful garden courtyard, super clean bathrooms, cheap private rooms, city center location, considerable service and brand new facilities. Of course, warm English speaking staff is more essential.
In my China living time, something would never be forgetted. The templeside house hostel was one of them. Although the hostel is famous on the internet now, I still want to mention its website www.templeside.com, since it gave me such a beautiful unmoveable memory.
