That's not negative - it means that you get some of the grandest hostel accommodation it's possible to have without it costing a significant amount.
Don't confuse grand with perfect though. The bathroom will be marble, but it's bound to boast at least one decent size crack...
The staff are exceptionally friendly and offer some excellent cheap trips to various activities.
The location is very close to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City too.
