Good place to stay, friendly staff and good breakfast. If you stay here a must try is the restaurant directly behind the hostel it looks terrible but is cheap as chips food is the best in Xi'an and it's a great laugh drinking dirt cheap beer with the locals GET INVOLVED!!

My intended visit here was for a few days and I ended up staying a week (there's certainly enough in Xi'an to keep you busy). The location was really convenient with major bus routes located nearby and easy to reach from the train station (just follow their directions) and best of all plenty of good stalls, cheap places to eat...

Except for the friendly staff, I could not recommend this place. My friend and I shared a 2 bedroom room. The beds were hard by any Chinese standard, the linen was dirty and the towels stunk of urine. The shower was a nightmare and left you feeling more dirty than when you went in. Slack cleanliness throughout the entire building... More

Except for the staff that is really nice and helpful, I would not recommand this place at all. Not very well situated (a 15 mn bus ride to go to Xi'an walls), even if the Goose Pagoda is a beautifull place to see by night. To room was VERY small, and the price was not very different from what you... More

Staff so friendly and welcoming- willing to help organise how to get to places and helped us organise our transport on to Chengdu. We... More

We checked in just before the 1st of May (holliday) and the hostel staff was so friendly to give us a lower rate for our 3 nights than the usual holliday rate. Besides this we booked a double room however for the second night there was no room available so the plan was that we had to move to the... More

Staff was amazing! We were lost tying to find the hostel and one of the girl actually came out and look for us! I do recommend taking the taxi from the airport. The airport shuttle doesn't stop at where the stops are. (Hence that's how we got lost). The common areas is a bit cold but the rooms are nice... More

This friendly hostel was located away from the city walls, but as it turns out in a very good area. The ‘Big Wild Goose Pagoda’ is just around the corner and there is a modern shopping area nearby with loads of restaurants and bars (including Western ones). The buses in Xi’an were really easy to use and so it was... More

The Hanwood Hostel is located next to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda somewhat outside the city center. Bus link to the center is good and takes approximately 20-30 min. Our room was a double on the third floor with a little balcony and ensuite bathroom. Everything spotlessy clean. The staff was exceptionally helpful and very friendly. My rating of being... More
