Budget Beds: Youth Hostels in Harbin

As one of the most popular destinations for snow and ice activities in China, Harbin gets more than its fair share of overseas and domestic tourists. However, its popularity as a tourist destination isn’t reflected in its accommodation options; at the time of writing, Harbin only has two youth hostels: Harbin Kazy International Youth Hostel and North International Youth Hostel. Not surprisingly, these two hostels have become a hotspot for backpackers and budget-conscious tourists.
