The location of this hostel is perfect, you can visit the city by walking, the underground is very close, as well as the bus to go to the train station. I had a private double room and it was big and comfortable. The hostel has also a restaurant in which you can have American/European breakfast. Helpful staff, they speak English.

Rooms/building More than good enough in terms of space and quality. I think higiene suffers sometimes because some of the guests themselves are not too clean/educated. I still saw the staff thoroughly cleaning the toilet and shower rooms everynight. The breakfast combos are great idea in theory but the quality is average. Location Nice location; at walking distance from the... More

Great location, friendly and helpful staff, great stop for 1 night on the road. You get what you pay for, so exactly what a hostel should be – hot shower, comfortable bed, free and fast WIFI and cool vibe! The music that they have playing in the restaurant/ bar is great – keep up what you doing!

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
