Hostelworld says:

Sanlitun Youth Hostel is a friendly, relaxed hostel with English-speaking staff who are 'easy to approach, fun to talk with and very helpful', according to our guests. This hostel has a western breakfast and a popular bar serving cheap drinks. It's surrounded by some of Beijing's best nightlife and many Hostelworld travellers have told us they will stay here again. We like their free dumplings on Friday nights and free Chinese hot pots on Wednesday - a great way to sample the local food and meet other travellers.

Property Information:

您好,本店暂不提供内宾零散床位的预订,请预订任何的Private room, 谢谢。

Our hostel sits in the heart of Beijing's vibrant Sanlitun nightlife area, famed for being the first point-of-call for revellers, both local Chinese and Western. The embassy area is also within walking distance, making it practical for the traveller who likes things to be within easy reach.

Located in the Chaoyang District, the hostel is just minutes from Dongsishitao subway station. It serves as the prime location to get to many of Beijing's attractions, such as the famed Yashow Market which specializes in designer clothing brands at fair prices.

Our free services include Wi-Fi, a library, luggage storage, movies, travel info, 24hr hot showers and even an electric guitar.

Our free dumpling party happens every Friday and our free Chinese hot pot party is on every Wednesday night; they’re a great opportunity to meet other guests.

Other amenities include laundry facilities, bicycle hire, print/scan services, international phone calls, a 2-for-1 book exchange, a post box, 24hr reception and airport pick-up. We also host birthday parties and traditional festivals.

Our spacious and modern restaurant area serves as both a chill-out area and home to cuisine that caters for international tastes with Chinese and Western food. There’s free home theatre in our restaurant every day and there’s discounted restaurant prices on certain days of the week.

We also offer tours to many of Beijing's famous attractions and provide transportation and tickets to the city's hottest talked-about shows. We organise daily tours to Mutianyu Great Wall and the Ming Tombs and city tours to Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and Tiananmen Square. We also have daily night view tours. We can book car services and tickets for kung fu shows, acrobatics shows and the Beijing Opera.

Our staff are all bilingual in English and Mandarin and are happy to answer any queries and help with any potential problems that you may encounter in Beijing.

We’re located near the post office (Western Union), supermarket, a clothing market, Sanlitun bar street and the embassy area. It’s easy to go to the bank, ATM, subway and bus station.

We offer a great experience for those wishing to gain the full effect of what Beijing has to offer. We all wish you have a good time in Beijing.

    Since we're in the lively area of Sanlitun, we are in a great location for our travellers to experience Sanlitun village and Bar Street. Also, we are only a 20 minute subway ride away from Tian'an men and the Forbidden City. I think that one of the best things about the hostel is the free dumping night on Friday, and the free hotpot night on Wednesday; there's always a great atmosphere. All of our staff speak English, so if you ever have a problem, you can always approach them. Our main age group is 20 -30 and you can find a lot of our travellers playing table football at the hostel or using the pool table.

    Great place to stay and fantastic value for money. I would recommend anyone to stop over at this place and what makes it even better is the fact that the heating during winter was warm and not like other hostels where you hardly feel it. Conveniently located from Sanlitun bar district and various other restaurants in the district.
