Inside your capsule: thick mattress & pillow, clean bedding, private light, electric sockets, free wifi, shower slippers, air-grate to corridor & privacy curtain. Clean western toilets and showers are nearby. Our capsules offer much more space than normal bunk beds, ranging from 1.3m-1.7m in height. They are very popular with guests - offering a private, secure space at the same price as a dorm bed.

* Special ensuite single (capsule) rooms are available ('Basic Single Private' room). Beijing's best option for a budget private space with washroom facilities. Smaller than an average single room, but cheap and private.(dimensions: 1.7m height, 3-4m width - with attached toilet & shower)

* All private rooms are newly renovated to 3 star hotel standards, designed by a Shanghai interior design firm. All rooms feature secure key-card access doors, free wifi, air-conditioning, flatscreen TV, western toilet and 24 hour hot water shower.

* Don't miss the rooftop viewing deck, with tables & chairs overlooking the Drum & Bell Towers and local hutong neighborhood. Guests can also book a spacious roof-garden room with a private patio garden.

* The onsite pizza cafe/bar provides a great meeting place for guests, offering a hearty selection of western cuisine, specialty coffee, international beers and cocktails. Guests can also enjoy one of the many bar games and movies...

* Great Wall of China tours and more can be easily booked through reception. Our tour company has many years of experience, ensuring you have a great trip out to the Great Wall of your choice. We can also arrange private transport to remote parts or to suit your busy schedule. We recommend guests also see some of our other special tours – like Chinese acrobatics, Peking opera and Shaolin Kung fu. Please take a free tour and services brochure when you arrive.
