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.

Beijing Far East International Youth Hostel is close to many local restaurants, small stores, a post office, Bank of China and supermarkets. The hostel is in a traditional Chinese courtyard, offers a TV and common room and has Internet access.

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.

This is not my idea of a "hostel" it's actually just a hotel. It says there's a cafe/pub there but it wasn't open any of the 4 days I was there. Was tricky to find but the location was on a cool Backstreet in a neighborhood full if music and art shops. Clean room, but again, just a hotel not a hostel style environment. Can only connect one device to WiFi so choose wisely. If your looking to socialize I'd go elsewhere, but if your lookin for a clean room in a neat area this place is just that

Teniamos reserva en dólares, pero nos hicieron pagar en yuanes. Pagué con lo que tenía encima, y el funcionario puso muy mala cara cuando le di monedas para completar el valor más el depósito de garantía (que en ningún lado está especificado). Mas tarde, el mismo individuo, a una amiga sin reserva, le pidió por una cama, 4 veces más de lo que aparecía en la web. Y tras varios minutos de reírse, cuando se le preguntó por otro lugar cercano, le ofreció el precio real. Una verguenza.

Budget meal tip

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