The good: We were greeted at Xian train station and accompanied (by bus) to the hostel which they paid for as it was Chinese New Year and their driver was bit available. The hostel was right next to a police station and conveniently located for buses and also to walk to the drum and bell tower. The room was clean,... More

We really liked our stay at the hostel. We found our room to be clean and tidy. The internet worked well and the staff were very nice and helpful. There were convenience stores and a KFC nearby. We'd definitely recommend the hostel to anyone of any age looking for accommodation in the Xi'An area.

I only had one night here. I intended staying longer but my permit for Tibet came through and I had to leave the next day. I shared a taxi from the airport with a couple who were being picked up by the hostel. The accommodation is dormitory with 4 in my room. The rooms are clean. The grounds are attractive... More

This is a hotel "disguised" as a hostel, and it's not necessary a bad thing. The hostel is quite large, rooms are new - actually the newest and best kept of all the hostels I've been to on a month long trip. Rooms were cleaned every day, toiletries and fresh towels were provided daily. Rooms on the 4th floor are... More

This place have fantastic water pressure and air-conditioning/heating. I stayed at a twin bedroom which comes with ensuite toilets, shampoo and bathing soap and towels. Very near the subway. Walk out of the hostel, turn left there's a 24 hour convenient store and a fantastic eatery a few shops away. For breakfast, walk further down turn the corner on your... More

Has everthing you can expect from a hostel. Good location only 20m from subwaystation where the only two lines in xian intersect. English speaking helpful staff. A good bar and restaurant with reasonable prices and free pool table. Nice atmosphere and they arranged activities like dumpling making. I would say, stay here!!

Great location, just next to Be Dajie metro station and the next stop is the station near Drum Tower which gives easy access to the Muslim Streets and Xian Great Mosque. If you feel like walking, which we sometimes did...it only takes about 15 minutes to Bell Tower and the shopping areas around it. The double room is very spacious... More
