Beijing P.Loft Hostel is located in downtown Beijing, within the hutong (alley houses) neighbourhood behind the Lama Temple. Visitors will find the hostel offers a peaceful break from a busy urban life. It is only 300 metres away from the Lama Temple subway station on lines 2 or 5, from which you can easily access most of Beijing's top sites.
The P.Loft site was formally an artillery factory built in the 18th century by the Qing Dynasty. Following this it became a military weapons depot, prison, then a factory. We kept the original features and style when we were building the hostel in 2007, and today you can still see the remains of the old buildings.
We provide clean and comfortable beds, delicious food, and a great atmosphere. No matter where you are from or what you do, you are always welcome to join us.
