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)

We can also arrange private transport to remote parts or to suit your busy schedule.
