The fabulous Peking International Youth Hostel is your home from home in Beijing. The hostel is in a fantastic location in the middle of Beijing’s most colourful Hutong district, just a few blocks north of the Forbidden City and east of Houhai and Qianhai Lakes.
Peking International Youth Hostel offers a huge choice of rooms including budget dorms, double rooms and luxury rooms. The dorms are large and spacious, with quality bunks and excellent bathrooms. Guests can dine in the lobby and enjoy a cocktail in the bar, or have afternoon tea on the terrace lounge, overlooking the Beijing Botanical Garden.
This is the perfect spot for exploring all that Beijing has to offer. Peking International Youth Hostel also offers a tour to the Great Wall of China (hiking from Jinshanlin to Simata) and provides airport transfers.
What travellers think
The hostel lobby is pretty and the yard is nice. However the rooms are too expensive for what they offer. Our two-bed room was really tiny and we had to cross the yard to go to the bathroom - what is awful at night in winter! There was only one bathroom for quite a lot of people and one would even have to go out of the hostel, cross the street to get to another building for another bathroom. The food is expensive for average hostel food. We experienced better hostels in China!

The architecture is great: hostel is located in a traditional hutong building, and my provate room was nice. Reception staff is also very nice. Anyway, prices are high, breakfast is just soso and it takes ages to be prepared. Moreover, it is forbidden to stay in the hall night-time cause the nightguard wanna sleep peacefully... incredible! Last but not least, wi-fi worked very bad, almost impossible to be used. Overall, I will not suggest to stay in this place.
