We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean and comfortable with a great shower. The common area has a nice bar with a pool table and a good selection of drinks. Given the lack of good bars in Xi'an, it was pretty much the best place to hang out in the city, as far as we could tell.... More

The hostel is located very close to a metro station with direct trains to the Xi'an bei railway station. All of the attractions in the city are within walking distance as is the Xi'an railway station (the old one) and buses to HuaShan and the Terracotta Warriors. Our double room was big and comfortable. The bathroom is Chinese wet room... More

This hotel is clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. It is quiet. It is also located within a 1 min walk from the subway line. The staff speaks good English, and can arrange reasonably priced tours for you.

Nice room, clean, bathrooms are big as well. There's a pub and cafe for some food. considerable quiet at my time of visit although there's the cafe just across the corridor. Hidden from the main road, as it is located behind a building, so make sure you got the directions and instructions to get there correct. The public spaces there... More

At first, I was having a hard time finding the hostel. It's hidden behind the corner of a police station undergoing renovation. If you take the Exit B of the BeiDaJie Metro Station and turn right (a rotten back lane), you will see the hostel in just 20-30m away. I took the wrong metro exit and I was searching thru... More

The hostel was good in terms of location, comfortable room, and helpful/polite staff. Good for travelling in a group. I stayed in a double bed room with an ensuite for 3 nights. The washroom was clean enough for a hostel, but could be improved. There is also no hostel vibe, more of a hotel. The main area / bar is... More

I like this hostel a lot. The room is clean and the people are so nice. I booked a single room and stayed there for 2 nights. I had a wonderful stay. Before I moved into this hostel, I stayed at Han Tang Inn where was not too far away from this hostel. So I just walked to this hostel... More

Very good location. The staff is very polite and always trying to solve any problems you have. Rooms are quiet good! They have free pick-up service from Xian central railway station, and they are punctual with the tour. You can use your YCA card.

Hard to find, cause the Hostel is not really on the Lianhu Road. I had booked three beds in four beds dormitory room two - three months before our arrvival. As we arrvive the staff told me they run out of the 4 beds room and will give us eight beds dormitory room or we must stay seperately! As we... More
