Beijing Far East International Youth Hostel is a lovely traditional style hostel, set in a quiet, Hutong neighbourhood and only a 10 minute walk away from Tian’anmen Square, Qianmen Business Center and the Forbidden City. The hostel has a rich history, being the former residence of a warlord in the beginning of the last century.

The hostel also provides bicycle rentals so that visitors can enjoy the Hutong area at their own pace. Other sights worth seeing close to the hostel include, The Great Wall, Shichahai Lakes, the few remaining Hutong neighbourhoods and The Legation Quarter for nightlife.
What travellers think
Far East YH is situated near to the subway station and bus stop. Here around, there is a supermarket and local dining room and stalls, I was satisfied. Beijing Opera theater is located in the place within a 10-minute walk. Location is the best.

Budget meal tip
10 m from hostel is small place. Looks a bit odd, but noodles are delicious.
