Tips / Destination

Beijing is one of the most interesting cities to visit. Especially for Westerners, as the culture is different, making it a desirable place to visit. For that particular group, it’s a culture shock to visit Beijing. It’s a huge city that can be tricky to understand. With the challenge of trying to figure out a new city, it helps when your hostel is a safe and comfortable place to stay.

 

For a hostel that is an all-around powerhouse, choose Templeside Lianlian Hutong Guest House. The hostel has a rating of 6.7 out of 10 from more than 200 reviews. It’s located in central Beijing and run by a local family. It’s helpful to have the family nearby to point out areas of interest. It has a homey and comfortable atmosphere where travelers feel welcomed. There are many free services offered, including free internet and WiFi, a free local tour and a free Chinese culture show. It’s a great place to stay during a trip to the city and will add to the memories made.

 

Another fantastic hostel in Beijing is the Peking Yard Hostel. Also located near shops and attractions, this hostel is a great fit for smaller groups of people looking for a more relaxed setting. It’s set in a courtyard house more than 200 years old and has lots of charm to it. The kitchen cooks homemade dishes for guests to enjoy doing their stay.
