Inexpensive

Far East Youth Hostel (Yuanddng Qingnian Lushe) ¿ftff Finds The best budget option in Beijing, bar none. Buried deep inside one of the city's most interesting hutong neighborhoods, and close to the Qian Men (208) metro station, the Far East gave itself a full makeover in 2002 and now offers comfortable rooms with sparkling new everything at unbeatable rates. The hostel maintains cheaper dorms behind a courtyard house across the street, but units in the main building are far better. A good choice even if you usually stay at mid-range places.
