Has-it-all hostel near historic Drum & Bell

Save to my Account

One of the friendliest, best-equipped hostels outside the Tiananmen Square area, Drum Tower Youth Hostel has large, clean, modern rooms with spotless Western-style bathrooms.

The ground-floor cafe area is wifi-enabled and is a good place to swap Beijing knowledge with other travellers. There’s also some rooftop seating as well as an attached bar-restaurant, called Lakers, which does cheap beer and pizza.

There’s bike rental (¥25 per day) as well as all the other facilities you’d expect from a decent youth hostel.

The historic Drum and Bell Towers are two minutes’ walk away, as are the bars and cafes around Drum & Bell Square. The lakes at Houhai are also just around the corner.
