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... More

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... More

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!!!

Hot showers and a comfy bed are the top two criteria of a good hostel stay experience for me. In the case of Peking Youth Hostel, not being to shower for all three mornings that I was there because the hot water supply was not working was rather unacceptable to me. This, coupled with the fact that the weather got... More

Located in a bustling hutong (old town quarter) this hostel has a cosy athmosphere. WIFI free. Cheap laundrx. Staff speaks english and can help out with tour-infos. There is a café in the same old but renovated building with a rooftop-bar, which was great! Try the double room with it's own bathroom - it's worth it!

It was a Chinese national holiday when we stayed here, so Beijing was very busy and the hutongs were crowded with tourists from around the country. We felt that the location of this hostel was perfect - it is along one of the main hutongs in the area, a couple of minutes walk from the Subway, and it is possible... More

ENGLISH This hostel is in the Hutons near the subway in a typical Hutons house with a lot of plants and flowers outside and inside the house. This makes you to feel more at home rather then in a hostel. The owner really take pride of keep this place in good shape. The rooms are small with comfortable and clean... More

I don't care how good or bad this hostel is - if you make a reservation in March for September and they don't honor it (even if you have paid the required deposit), then the place is horrid. After a long flight, we arrived to find out that we would have to go to their sister hostel and have lesser... More

This hostel is located smack dab in the center of a very busy and lively hutong in Beijing, complete with tourists, traditional shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, and plenty of street food stops. There is a metro station conveniently located right near the beginning of the hutong, making your stay just a few stops away from most of Beijing's main sites.... More

The location is pretty convenient in the middle of a touristic Hutong. There are nice restaurants, bars and Stores for shopping. The dorms are Ok. Nothing terrible but lockers are small for larger luggages. The environment is great with flowers and gardens. Pleasant Stay!
