Clean, comfy, quiet, spacy. They tidy rooms, provide you with fresh towels and bottled water. The best place we've stayed in china.
A bit far from main sightseeing, but it's absolutely compensated by the fact how clean and comfortable the rooms are.
The hostel is quite close to the metro station and otherwise conveniently located within walking distance from Sanlitun mall and restaurants. The room was decorated in a simple yet comfortable way. The lobby was nice for working and hanging out.
The room had some mould on the walls and the shower curtain that led to allergic reactions. We ended up staying much shorter time than planned due to this. The breakfast, which wasn't included in the price at first, wasn't anything to recommend. For some reason the hostel is not located at the address that it shows, instead you have to continue the road even further and turn left at the end of the road to get to the right place (which isn't even named Lab Hostel). So there you go, nothing to recommend, but since Beijing is surprisingly expensive, you might save some money on staying here.
The greatest thing about staying at the Lab Hostel is it's location. It's close enough to Sanlitun to get all your shopping done, and meet friends at popular restaurants. And yet it's location is far enough away to not get trapped in the grid-lock traffic that can happen near Sanlitun, and still have access to the subway, buses, taxis for transportation. It's also perfectly located if you need other forms of travel like the airport or the train station.
Another thing I liked about staying at the Lab Hostel is I could have a full day of shopping and seeing old friends, and it was a delight when I came back to Lab Hostel and could have a couple of COLD beers while watching a Movie downstairs in the general area. Now, Lab Hostel keeps changing their minds about this, sometimes you have alcohol to sell, sometimes you don't. It was a nicer stay when you did.
Room was clean and cozy! Very value for money.
Only drawbacks were the bad soundproofing of the rooms and inconsiderate travelers who smoked in their room resulting in our room smelling like smoke!
With a stay at Lab Hostel, you'll be centrally located in Beijing, within a 5-minute drive of Sanlitun and CCTV Headquarters. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, luggage storage, and an elevator. Free self parking is available onsite.
