This place is a charming hideaway in the middle of the houtongs tourist area, you would never know it was there which makes it hard to find, It would have been helpful if we had known that the subway arrives close by(still need to walk through the houtong area to get to the hostel), rather than having to haggle with...

I stayed at an 8 bed room and everything was amazing. The staff was quite friendly and helpful, they even helped me carry my luggage across the stairs. As the other reviews say, it is in a very busy neighborhood but I found that I was very appealing and full of things to do. In overall, it is a great... More

We stayed here a couple nights in a room with two twin beds. The staff was very sweet and friendly, and really went out of their way to help us. The room was clean, the shower nice. My only complaint is that for $80/night, they could have at least given us a bar of soap. Instead, they have a sign... More

Probably the best (and definitely the most floral) hostel we stayed in during a month in China. A bit pricier than some places, but it was a pleasure to stay there and the staff were very helpful. The location is great, in the heart of buzzing Nanluoguxiang.

The place is ok, the decor is ok (but far from chinese-inspired), the staff is helpful and the location close by Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City is just perfect, but the price of a room and the prices in the on location cafe is just too high.

Bike for rent=broken The Peking cafe=terrible service and overpriced Rooms: really nice equipments Toilets: better than expected Environment: really lovely My advice: you can pay around 13 pounds per night (dorm), but please dont go to the cafe the service is really disappointed and you can have the same food for less around the city. And enjoy beijing !

The place is very well located and full of flowers, that make you feel good after a day of walking arround. The street is famous and crowded, full of shops and restaurants. The metro is 2 min away, the hutongs everywhere arround and the Forbidden city not far at all. The staff is friendly (but it could be better). We... More

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
