Saga Youth Hostel


No,9 Shijia Hutong, Nanxiaojie Dongcheng District Beijing

Lonely Planet review

Enjoying an interesting location on historic Shijia Hutong, this popular hostel is a grey block but the inside compensates with some character and staff members are helpful towards travellers. Rooms are basic but well kept, and it has a refectory, a bar, and in the main lobby a spacious seating area. The mixed dorm rooms are a decent size and include private lockers. The building is modern, but the height has advantages: head up to the huge open rooftop and directly view the Qing-dynasty-era courtyard below.

Our independent authors have visited Saga Youth Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Běijīng.
