Walking into a Beijing HuTong is like a stroll through history and only in a HuTong can you experience real Chinese/Beijing lifestyle, which today is a fast developing city loosing much of its traditional face - not in the HuTongs and our hostel, Sweet Garden House reserves this history.
When arriving in the Sweet Garden House, you will instantly forget the noisy and crowded streets of Beijing and be able to relax listening to the birds whistling above and watching the HuTong life outside. HuTongs are a very social place. You will see people in the narrow HuTong alleys chatting and playing while drinking and just generally social in these quite alleys.
The Sweet Garden House has new, nice, tidy and clean facilities & equipment. There are in total 20 rooms with conditions for guests, including single rooms, double rooms, four and six person dorms. Each room is equipped with a security alarm, fire alarms and electricity plugs. On each floor of the guest house and in the garden there are clean toilets, showers and washing rooms.
