Okay, positives: Nice downstairs area Good location Good wifi Negatives: Bathroom was mouldy and our room wasn't cleaned properly before our stay - and when we checked out they told us that it wasn't cleaned at all before our stay - which is really gross They also tried to charge us 80rmb for a small yellow spot on the sheets...

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

This hostel is located in a good area and easy to find. The hostel itself is very pretty and has aesthetically pleasing communal areas. The staff did not speak very good English so be prepared to struggle with this. The food and drink is also over priced for what it is compared to other hostels. There was no really atmosphere...

Great backpacker! Clean rooms and toilets and friendly staff. 3-5 minutes with bus to trainstation/citycenter. And a very good internet-connection in the rooms for being China. Only minus I have to say about this hostel is the lockers in the room. Very bad quality made of wood. Could easily opend a locked one with my bare hands. Hopefully you will... More

Lovely place, traditional house with a local feel to it. Has a bar and restaurant (food is ok, decently priced). Staff is friendly and helpful (pleasantly surprised by their level of English). Stayed in a private room with ensuite bathroom. The rooms were clean and spacious enough. Location is good if you're going to cycle around the wall (recommendable), although... More

Fairly cheap for private double but there is no wifi in the rooms, only fairly unreliable wifi in the overpriced and not very good restaurant. The rooms were great though. English movie channel and very nice bathroom, although glass to the bathroom so only go the double with someone you are cosy with.

This hostel is well located very near the South gate to the city. It is a very large hostel in an interesting old building with helpful staff. There is also an attached restaurant/bar which is slightly separated from the hostel itself. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was clean and a decent size, and the lockers were big... More
