Hostelworld says

Hostelworld guests rated Peking International Hostel the most popular in Beijing at the 2011 Hoscars and it’s no wonder – this clean, modern and charming hostel has boutique-style common areas and a rooftop restaurant as well as vases of fresh flowers throughout which provide ‘a welcome respite from the dusty Beijing streets’, as one traveller said. Our visitors tell us this is ‘more than just a hostel, [it’s like] a little quaint boutique hotel. The perfect place to rest after a day in the crowded city centre’.

Property Description

The fabulous Peking International Youth Hostel is your home-from-home in Beijing. We’re located only two minutes’ walk from the subway station.

Here, you are in the middle of Beijing’s most colourful Hutong district, just a few blocks north of the Forbidden City, just east of Houhai and Qianhai Lakes. We’re set in a quaint, charming lane Nan Luo Gu Xiang in downtown Beijing.

We offer you a huge choice of rooms, budget dorms, affordable double rooms and luxury rooms. The dorms are large and spacious. Great care has been taken in furnishing our spacious rooms to the highest standard, with top quality bunks and excellent bathrooms with showers.

You can dine in our lobby or enjoy a cocktail in our bar. Why not come for afternoon tea in our Terrace Lounge, overlooking the Botanic Gardens?

This is the perfect spot for your short break in Beijing – we’re near everything that is hot and happening. Catch a spectacular show or a profound play of Peking Opera or Chinese Kungfu. Whiz around galleries, museums and the Forbidden City. Why not ask our concierge for ideas or an itinerary created just for you? Go out and have fun, then come back home for some five-star luxury.

We’re just 25 minutes’ walk from the Forbidden City and only 12 minutes’ walk from Beihai Park.

We have a daily 3.5hr hiking trip from Jinshanling to Simatai great wall. We can also facilitate pick-up and drop-off at the airport.

We also have a sister hostel - Peking Yard Hostel - just 10 minutes away by taxi. It is a 200-year-old courtyard-style house. It’s one of the most beautiful hostels you will find and is also here on Hostelworld.com.

This is a cosy little place to stay at; the location is very central in the historic Nanluogu alley, and the staff were always pleasant and efficient when helping. I enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere in both the hostel and the attached cafe as well, and I'll be happy to stay again one day.

We're located in a charming lane, just five minutes' walk from Houhai Lake and 20 minutes from the Forbidden City. I recommend people definitely visit the web-like maze of Hutongs. For fun our guests like to have some nice drinks and play the free guitar we have around here. We also serve Illy Coffee in our beautiful café. We cater to all ages and have baby chairs as well as wheelchair accessibility on the first floor.
