Xiangzimen International Youth Hostel is set in a 'very good location, close to the South Gate where you can rent bikes and ride along the city wall', as our guests say. It's also about 15 minutes' walk from the Muslim Quarter. This friendly hostel features free Wi-Fi, free coffee and beer and free pick-up from the train station. We like their weekly dumpling parties, where it's easy to meet other travellers.
