Welcome to Chinese Box Courtyard Hostel, a traditional Beijing courtyard. We spent quite a few years traveling around most parts of China, so with these precious traveling experience, we know very well how to entertain backpackers with a clean and comfortable place full of fun.


---------- ORIGINAL TASTE AND FLAVOUR ----------

Chinese Box Courtyard Hostel has been carefully and originally preserved with a traditional Si-He-styled house, and nestled in the designated historic landmark Hu-Tong neighborhood (500-year-old) well protected by Beijing government. It's quiet and peaceful, and of course, very safe.


---------- NICE LOCATION ----------

If you are looking for a definitely cozy and convenient stay, this is it:
Within only 5-minute walking you can reach one of the subway stations, quite a few Chinese restaurants with delicious pecking duck, dumplings, etc, a hilarious local market, a super market (08:30-22:00), several 24-hour convenience stores, a fruit market, tea shops and so on.
