A lovely combination of traditional and modern decorations, Drum Tower Hostel is located at a Hutong neighborhood, in a bustling central location.

It takes 5 minutes to reach the nearest subway station, the prestigious Bell Tower and the Drum Tower by walking;about 10 minutes to reach the Imperial College, Yonghe Lama Temple,Hou Hai Bar Street, Beihai Park, Forbidden City and Jingshan Park by bike; about 20 minutes to Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square by subway.

For private rooms, bathroom, air-conditioner and TV are equipped. Shared dorm rooms are air conditioned as well. You can put your valuables in secured lockers or the safer in the lobby. Additionally, you have access to 24-hour hot water and reception service.

Because the hostel is located in a traditional Hutong where many Beijing natives still reside, you will come across many delicious restaurants and find out some intriguing moments of how Beijingers live and eat. On JiuGuLouDaJie, where our hostel lies, you can taste really good dumplings and noodles, Peking roast duck, caf bar, tea house and grocery stores with our favorite old Beijing Yoghurt.
