The location of the hostel is just fantastic, close to the bus station, right at the city wall and not to far from any other important place - they are all just a Tuk Tuk ride away. The hostel is located in an extremely nice building that gives it a special atmosphere. The staff is friendly although their English was... More

Xiangzi men, not only is nicely located, but actually has the looks of classical chinese yard, with modern comforts. The crew knows their game, meaning you will be looked after. Private rooms are clean, with 24h hot water and nicely furnished. Oh last but not least this is a quite hostel, unlike many others in Xian. Would stay there again... More

Stayed here in November the room was very spacious, nice double bed and hot water as and when needed. The reception staff were friendly enough and gave us a map of the local area which came in handy. Everything was in walking distance except the terracota warriors - the hostel does offer this but we did our own route much... More

Group of 3 stay here and the manager was kind enough to give us a dorm to ourselves for the same price as the mixed dorms. The locations is great, right by the south gate of the city. Take a 603 or 611 to the bell tower and walk the rest (5-10mins). The hotel is situated right by the cities... More

I like the location of this hostel - not hard to find as the south gate is a good landmark. Easy access to south gate, Drum Tower, Muslim street, malls and etc by walking, and the public transport station (bus and subway) is nearby. Few convenient stores are just next to the hostel. Have a great time staying in 4-people-dorm,... More

We arrived here from Bejing, where we had a brilliant time. The instructions to the hostel were hard/impossible to follow, we ended up using a rickshaw to get us there eventually. The address wasn't in Chinese either, so not a great start. The rooms are nice and clean and the food there was good. However we booked a tour to... More

First the good thing: its a very cute decorated hostel next to the south gate. So you can go to the main spots in a few minutes. The hostel also organises trips for you to the terracotta warriors for a reasonable price. The food is ok. They are also serving western food. For chinese conditions the coffee is very good... More

We stayed at the xiangzhimen hostel for 3 nights while in Xian. We had a room in the basement. The room itself was nicely decorated, bathroom was reasonably clean, some left over hairs. The rest of the room was a bit dusty. The room was situated in a basement which meant no windows, but a cool temperature at all times.... More

Two adults two kids in their huge family bed.we slept very well. Small room but good size bathroom. The hostel is staffed by helpful young locals. Cafe and bar_ a backpacker scene and not for us but nicely done. Location is excellent for bus to train station to get bus to terracotta warriors. Tastefully furnished to suit location
