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.

We used the dorm for women and it housed 6 people. There was no place for bags and there is no light for folks who sleep on the lower bed. 1 air conditioning which didn’t work and a coming bathroom which strangely was shared with another dorm which made it even tougher. The

The title says it all - I loved this place. I (and kids) were in a private room, not the dorm area. The rooms were basic but comfortable - large king bed. Facilities were very basic - no toiletries which surprised me considering we were paying 500-600 a night. But the place

Did hostel staff understand English ok? Thanks
Yes, and they were happy to write directions or place names in Chinese characters that I could take with me and show the paper to the taxi driver.

When we stayed there last October we asked the same question - the hostel suggested we take a taxi or the metro. Just make sure to look carefully at a map so you know how to get from the road to the hostel - there's a bit of a walk down a pedestrian section, so taxis can't take you right to the door.
