I would definitely recommend this hostel, nice and spacious, the room are organised around interior courtyards. Be aware the toilet is squat toilet only (but by the time you've reached Xi'an you should have got used to). The hotel is located from walking disance to the muslim quarter. If you arrive by train or plan to go to the Terracotta... More

It's fine. The toilet and showering facilities are basic, not the cleanest and seemed kind of busy (I got up early). There is a restaurant and a bar there and they give you a coupon for a free drink when you arrive which is nice. Apparently the bar is very good but I didn't have time to check this out... More

A very nice place, with a good atmosphere and a really friendly staff! I and my friend arrived at the train station and the staff came to take us with car. We gave us a welcome beer for free! The dormitory is clean and nice, the only fault is the bathroom with shower that is outside and it could be... More

Everyones good reviews of this place are shocking. The only one I agree with is the guy who said he'd rather sleep on the street than in this place. First of all, the bar is fantastic. Great bar, great bands, great time. I highly recommend the bar. But this is a review for the hostel. Go party in the bar... More

Great location next to the city wall and near to the Muslim quarter. Restaurant serves nice and cheap food, and the bar downstairs has great drinks, and very friendly bar staff. The hostel has a few courtyards with hanging plants, and the cafe is covered in drawings from people that have stayed there from all for the world - fantastic... More

I have not stayed in the hostel but I am a regular guest of Park Qin. Park Qin is your neighbourhood pub, the staff is really friendly as welcoming. They have a great selection of beer and many local expats of Xian hang out there. There is Cathy, their superstar employee who is always a pleasure to talk to and... More

Shuyuan Hostel is located near the centre of Xi'an right next to the city wall. Many of the city's landmarks are within walking distance. Day trips can also be organised to places like the Terracotta Warriors and Mt Huashan. Staff were very helpful here and spoke good English. The guide that took a group of us to the Terracotta warriors,... More

Was with a large group. Rooms were good, clean and staff were fab. Really helpful with tour, local knowledge. Good position inside city walls. Close to everything and only a bus ride to the station (though the staff organised a taxi for us on the way back.). Recommended.

We did have a few problems with finding this hostel but location is great because everything is really near. We stayed in dorm room which was nice and really clean. Also the bathrooms were clean all the time. The staff were ok and they did speak English.
