Ming's Dynasty is Chengde's first hostel and the only budget accommodation in Chengde allowed to accept foreign guests.. It's located just a few minutes walk from the main train station. Ming's Dynasty is run by an American woman and her Chinese husband. At Ming's Dynasty you will find East truly meets West! The owners bring together the best of both worlds through their knowledge of local life and culture, as well as through their understanding of foreign travelers' needs.

Ming's Dynasty is a small hostel, which includes 18 rooms surrounding a small courtyard (Chinese siheyuan). A variety of rooms are available to insure you find a room that meets your expectations and budget. There is also a bar & cafe where guests can relax, surf the internet (free WiFi), play board games, swap books, and enjoy a drink while meeting new friends.

Visiting Chengde's UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Summer Mountain Resort and Eight Outer Temples, can easily be done by bus, taxi, or bike. Information is provided for free at hostel check-in.

1. FROM TRAIN STATION: After exiting the train station, turn right onto the main road (Chezhan Lu). Continue walking, about 5-10 minutes, until you reach Huilong Hotel. If you reach the bridge that crosses the river, you've walked too far.

2. FROM LONG DISTANCE BUS STATION: If you are coming from the long distance bus station take a taxi to the hostel (about 20 rmb) or bus 1 or 29 to Xinjuzhai. From Xinjuzhai station, continue walking about 30 meters (in the direction the bus is going) and you will see Huilong Hotel (会龙大厦). Ming's Dynasty Hostel is located inside.
