Beijing Red Lantern House Hostel
To quote one happy backpacker ‘Red Lantern House is a blessing on all Beijing tourists’. Beijing Red Lantern House combines two qualities with near universal appeal: a traditional Chinese courtyard building buried in the hutong and dirt-cheap prices. What more could you want? The building began life as an eighteenth century mansion, discount rooms open onto its tranquil courtyards
Red Lantern House Hostel is located in downtown Beijing in Xicheng district, the main sites like the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square are a short car or subway journey away, Beijing’s lakeside bar district Houhai is five minutes walk from the hostel.
The hostel is clean and the staff are friendly and speak English. Airport pickup can be arranged and the hostel can organise various Beijing tours and book tickets for guests.
Hostelworld.com users voted Red Lantern House the best hostel in Asia for 2005, which is a great tribute, but also means it’s pretty busy, so we recommend you book ahead.
