In a city where the monthly rent for a one-bedroom apartment within the Fourth Ring Road averages more than $290, this price is really tempting, especially for those who have just left college and are still searching for a job.
The units for rent are usually beds instead of rooms. The daily rent for one bed in the downtown area is no more than $4.40 while the lowest is only $2.22.
Bao Yanyan, founder of jobhotel.com.cn, said, "Job hotels enjoy great demand."
Good job hotels not only offer a place to stay for job hunters, but also provide recruitment information through flyers or posters in the lobby, he explained.
AsiaOneNews reported that Bao said, "In Beijing alone there will be over 200,000 students graduating from college this year, not including overseas graduates and job-hoppers."
