Square itself. Just behind us you can find a quiet,

Back in 2003, there were no real
‘hostels’ in Beijing - just chinese hotels
where foreigners were allowed to stay.
After working in hotels and hearing so
many complaints from western guests
about poor service, Leo decided to quit
his job and dedicate his life to opening
Beijing’s first hostel. With his self-
taught english, a loan from his family, a
trusted friend, and LOTS of loyal
support from his guests, he was able to
accomplish his dream at the end of
2004. Thanks to all the guests who
have stayed here over the years, and
welcome to all our new foreign friends!
