Noodles is very proud of living in the Hutong because everybody knows each other and it has everything he needs. His dream is to be able to open ten more hostels in the next five years with his boss. He says that creating accommodation for foreigners is being incentivized by the government because with the arrival of more foreigners Beijing intends to become an international city . According to Noodles, some lodgings in the Hutong are not allowed to host foreigners because the employees do not know any other languages besides Chinese and therefore they won’t be able to communicate in order to solve possible problems.
