Jano's is a backpacker's hostel with some very special rooms that take it up a few notches. We booked a room for 3 expecting separate beds, and were shown a room with a wall to wall bed that could easily have accommodated five people. It was a surprise, and not what we were expecting, but ultimately it was perfectly adequate,... More

The staff at Janos Backpackers were very friendly and helpful. When the air con in my original room wasn't working, they had no problem letting me switch rooms. They helped me book a terracotta warrior tour. This was convenient. Location is right next to the south gate and lots of arts, with crafts sellers, and street food around the area.... More

We stayed upstairs and had a nice lounge area aside to the bedroom. Location was fine, a decent 10 min walk to the metro but really well located to eating and entertainment options. Staff were super helpful in helping out with day trip options. Very interesting arty area, calligraphy street nearby. Lovely to see the local kids of the local... More

We booked three private rooms at Janos for three nights in June with my 60 year old parents and two 30 year old couples. Our stay started well with a pick-up from the airport (though pricey at 350 RMB). The driver did not speak any English, so Michael (the manager) called us to let us know that we should follow...

I spent 3 nights at Jano's Backpackers. There was lots of availability so I scoped out some room choices before deciding which to take. Most of the rooms are located in the basement with no windows and no air conditioning. I found the basement to be musty smelling, damp, and the ceiling fans were caked with dust so I decided... More

It's really very cheap! Yes, it's just a hostel, but it's really well located, therefore I chose it and I really liked. Stuff was very friendly, helpful and English speaking! It's such a miracle in China! And Wireless works well enough, including in the rooms.

My husband and I stayed in a private room, which had the biggest bed in it (2m by 3m). He's really tall, so we loved it. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and the bathrooms are great too. We stayed in a hotel before coming to Jano's. It cost twice as much and was half the size, so we were... More

I have stayed at Jano's Backpackers when I have needed to be in the city center as it is right inside South Gate. Although I usually stay at hotels, I need to compare this to other hostels I have stayed at. The upstairs rooms are nice and tidy with a Chinese theme. Although there is a bar downstairs but all...

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and I can recommend it. We had the room in top floor with spacious 'living room' and good bathroom. It was not next to the main street and bar, so it was very quiet as well. It's clean and cozy and well managed. I would have rated the maximum if they had better... More
