Location: Two minutes walk from the Nanluoguxiang subway station, which is easily accessible via metro from the Beijing International airport. The hutong the hostel in located in is quiet in the morning and lively at night. Lots of restaurants and street food stalls line the alley. The hostel is very cozy and nicely decorated with plants. The outdoor rooftop area...

Jim and I checked in not expecting much and got more than we paid for. We had room 105 which has two beds and a nice bath ensuite with shower. The room is utilitarian, but there is lots of communal space in the area outside our room and the restaurant. The real surprise was the quiet. Once 10:00 came the...

If you take advantage of the 72 free transit visa in Beijing this is the place to stay! Right in the heart of the cute tourist shopping district and walking distance from Tienanmen square, the location is perfect. The rooms are cozy and very clean and comfortable. The cafe attached is good for a drink and a snack but be...

I stayed here for four nights in a two bed female dorm. The room which had bunk beds shared a little hallway where the sink was located and a combined toilet/shower room with an adjacent, larger female dorm. The decor of the room was simple, yet modern and there was a locker for each person and the hostel provided a...

The rooms were clean tidy and comfortable with a very spacious bathroom with a good shower and loads of hot water. Given it was freezing outside the rooms were maintained at a perfect temperature to keep us warm and toasty. However, the highlight of the place is the common lounge area and café which are beautifully decorated with gorgeous fresh...

We chose to stay here after reading positive reviews on TA. The rooms are small, but clean and the location is great. It's not super cheap (we walked past other hostels in the area that are much cheaper), but it's a nice place to stay. There is a roof top bar that seemed like a lot of fun (there was...

Had a great time at this hostel! Very supportive staff that go above and beyond. My room was clean and cozy! The location is great for using the train and hanging out in the Hutong bazaars and restaurants. Can get challenging if you want to take a taxi to the airport. I would recommend the private shuttle pick up, expensive...

This did not even feel like a hostel to be honest. I loved all of the fresh flowers! The food was very good. Everything was very clean, and it was close to a lot of attractions. What more could you ask for? Would definitely stay here again and absolutely recommend!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A lively hostel! If you like to be surrounded by flowers, and if you like to feel like home when you travel, this is the right place for you!Peking International Youth Hostel is situated at the most charming and popular Hutong Conservative District in Beijing - the south of Nanluoguxiang. It is located near the very heart of the city, in the Dongcheng District. The alley's north end is enclosed by Gulou and Zhonglou. A little south-west at the end of the alley, is the middle axis of Beijing where the Jingshan Park, the Forbidden City and the Tiananmen Square sits along. The gorgeous night time attraction sites, Houhai, Qianhai and Shishahai is just to the west of the alley, in a distance that should take you around only 10 to 15 minutes walk through Yu'er Hutong. ... more   less
