Hostelworld says:

Peking Yard Hostel is a laid-back hostel located near the National Art Museum and within walking distance of the Forbidden City. This hostel has 'ample hang-out space' where it's easy to meet other travellers, according to our guests. One visitor told us that 'as a girl travelling alone it was perfect for me as it is very clean and safe'. We particularly like that this hostel is full of beautiful, fresh flower arrangements.

Property Information:

Peking Yard Hostel is one of the most beautiful hostels you will find in Beijing; we’re set in a courtyard house which is more than 200 years old.

This beautiful building gives our guests the chance not just to see Beijing's history but also to sleep in it! It’s been restored with all modern facilities without spoiling the building's character. The moment you step inside you'll begin to relax, unwind and experience all that we have to offer.

Our lovely kitchen offers everything that is homemade - from bread to ketchup, from milkshakes to deluxe pizza and choice Italian wines. We use Illy coffee beans so you can enjoy only the best latte, Americano, espresso, cappuccino, macchiato, mocha and more.

Our dumpling party is not a party – it’s the party! This is when everyone stops working and relaxes, yes! We are not only receptionists, chefs, or laundry ladies, but families – come and join us!

We’ve got music on all the time, from sunrise to sunset, with classical, rock, pop, R&B, post-disco and more. It’s always up to date!

In our library you’ll find the China Daily Newspaper, Lonely Planet Series, tourist guidebooks, Norton Literature series, best sellers, fashion magazines, food and wine magazines and more.

We have a terrace. Imagine when you wake up after a tiring trip, you go upstairs and have a most relaxing breakfast, bath in the sunshine, sense the fragrance of flowers, read the morning paper or have a candle-lit dinner at night and hang out with friends - anything you can think of, and yes, it's all yours!

We also have movie nights. You will always find something to your taste amongst our hundreds of movies, so get yourself entertained!

Guests can be assured by our conscientious staff, security card system and commitment to the highest standards. Our warm and friendly staff will do all in their power to insure your stay with us is a memorable experience.

We offer accommodations to fit your personal needs. No matter what your tastes, we're sure you'll find just what you're looking for. Our services include a postal service (with postcards and stamps), ticket booking (from trains to planes and from concerts to museums), tour booking (transfer and entrance, no shopping); plus, we offer an airport pick-up and drop-off service for a small fee.

Our daily tour from Jinshanling to Simatai Great Wall 3.5hrs long, with a 6km climb to see 22 ancient towers and the most rugged part of the Great Wall. Sometimes we also have tours of Mutianyu Great Wall and the Ming Tombs. The wild great wall is Simatai but the 'fun' wall is Mutianyu. Climbing Simatai is a memorable challenge, with breath-taking scenery, but for lighter hike, choose Mutianyu. You can reach the top by Swiss gondola or chair lift for incredible views. Hike to serene spots to take photos, then race down by alpine slide or walk leisurely. Included in the tour are the ancient Ming tombs, burial place of the emperors.

We can book tickets for some great performances, including transfer and entrance, such as the Peking Opera, traditional Chinese acrobatics and kung fu demonstrations (4000 years of history and still alive!). Beijing is a metro-city filed with excitement and wonder; go to the reception and ask them for anything - tips for local snacks, tourist sites or just a small walk in one of Beijing's remote Hotong. Feel the pulse of Beijing!

With our new way of living, always on the move, you never know what’s gonna happen tomorrow; we all live in constant cultural shock - that's the way of a backpacker, and we bloody enjoy it! Take a minute off from the stress of living, see the world, touch it and get inspired for your next journey!

Our mission is to provide comfortable, secure, clean and spacious accommodation to the budget traveller. Don't just see Beijing's history; live in it for a while!

    I think what makes us unique is our building. There's a well-preserved Qing Dynasty courtyard, with a history over 150 years old, giving guests the chance to not only see Beiking's history but to sleep in it. We also have a cosy lobby, a beautiful garden and a group of friendly staff. For fun our guests like to play pool, watch satellite TV, partake in our dumpling parties, use the free Internet and make new friends.
    We really like to make everyone's stay as great as possible. We have wheelchair accessibility and vegetarian options and more.

    Lovely, cozy place. It's close to the metro so easy to find when you first arrive and easy it's to explore the city from here too. As a girl travelling alone it was perfect for me as it is very clean and safe. Also the staff are friendly, they speak English and they helped me organise an amazing tour to the great wall! I would highly recommend this place:)

    I've stayed here twice: May 2012 and Dec 2014. I agree with everyone about central location and convenience, so I'll stress that the staff are wonderful. They are so kind! I got sick right before our stay and the manager found some meds for me. I wish the rooms had stronger Wifi, and with my second visit, I see that the place needs some painting and upkeep (like the grout in the bathrooms). But overall a lovely place. I would always stay here when in Beijing. The breakfasts are decent too. :)
