Beijing Hostels: Beijing Poachers Inn Friendship Youth Hostel

Poachers Inn Youth Hostel / You Yi

Beijing’s Poachers Hostel is fast becoming something of an accommodation institution and is clear first choice for a certain young, cash strapped, beer-drinking section of Beijing backpacker tourists.

Poacher’s Hostel has a huge number of dorm beds at 70Y a go or twins are in the region of 180Y. A basic breakfast, eaten in the bar, is included in the price, staff are friendly and polite and the place is pretty clean.

However it is Poachers hostel location, love it or hate it, that brings in the backpackers and turns off the tours. Poachers is just off Sanlitun North Street, Beijing’s busiest bar street. The atmosphere is joyfully raucous and the streets are filled with revellers until the early hours. The Poachers bar with its ridiculously cheap alcohol is the centre of all the fun – but that means light sleepers might not find any peace until 2 or 3 AM. On the other hand, many people never notice the noise.

The other downside is that the area is somewhat sleazy – a large proportion of Beijing’s pimps, prostitutes, drug dealers and beggars are drawn to Sanlitun North Street by the prospect of rich foreigners drunkenly throwing away their money. The atmosphere is not threatening, but it’s certainly colourful.
