Our hostel is located in one of Peking's exquisite traditional
neighbourhoods known as hutongs. As Beijing grows and modernizes
many hutongs are being destroyed. However, recently the
government has designated certain hutongs to be protected and
preserved as historical and cultural spaces. Our hostel is
situated within one of these protected areas. Our particular
neighbourhood was formed in the Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368) and has
retained its original scale and structure through the Ming and
Qing dynasties and up to the present.
Established on the foundations of the original siheyuan
(four-in-one courtyard houses), our hostel exemplifies authentic
Beijing architecture. Beijing siheyuans embody the traditional
Chinese concept of living. If you want to authentically
experience the Chinese life style then staying at our hostel is
your best bet.
Our hostel is designed not only to be your home away from home,
but also to allow you to touch Chinese culture in a meaningful
way. Our furniture, decorations, and overall layout will truly
immerse you in Chinese traditional culture. In our teahouse you
can experience Chinese tea culture and in our cafe you can enjoy
traditional Chinese food. We also provide a self-service kitchen
in which you can enjoy the pleasure and convenience of cooking.
We can arrange all kinds of outings to Beijing?'s main tourist
attractions as well as help you explore the Beijing that lies
off the beaten track. Additionally, we organize some traditional
Chinese activities such as Tai chi here at the hostel. If you
stay with us you are guaranteed to genuinely experience the
Chinese way of life.
There are many types of rooms in our hostel in which to meet
your needs. We offer deluxe double rooms, standard rooms (two
single beds), single rooms (one single bed) and 4-bed or 6-bed
dorm-style rooms. All our rooms are clean, comfortable, and
Our hostel enjoys a great location. Since we are situated inside
Beijing?'s second-ring road a great majority of Beijing?'s most
famous sites are easily accessible from our hostel. We provide
bike rentals so that you can enjoy the hutongs and other Beijing
attractions at your own pace. We are happy to supply you with a
map with which to explore the traditional hutongs. From our
front door it only takes ten minutes to walk to the nearest
subway station, Xidan shopping centre, Shishahai, and Beihai
Park. There are many restaurants and food stalls nearby which
allow you to sample different styles of Chinese cuisine. In
addition, many banks are conveniently located within walking
distance of our hostel.
From our hostel it is also very convenient for you to take the
airport shuttle bus. It is only a fifteen-minute walk from our
hostel to Xidan airport shuttle bus station so it is convenient
for you to stay here and take the shuttle to the airport the
next day. If you want to personally experience the authentic
Beijing way of life, our hostel is your best choice. Everything
