Lonely Planet review

A cheaper option than the excellent Peking International Youth Hostel, but still with the same wonderful hútòng location, Downtown Backpackers is Nanluogu Xiang’s original youth hostel and it hasn’t forgotten its roots. Rooms are basic, therefore cheap, but are kept clean and tidy, and staff members are fully plugged in to the needs of Western travellers. Rents bikes and runs recommended hiking trips to the Great Wall (¥280), plus a range of other city trips. Rates include breakfast.

Our independent authors have visited Beijing Downtown Backpackers and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Drum Tower & Dōngchéng North.
