This was the first time I have stayed in a youth hostel since I was about 11 so didn't really know what to expect. It was recommended to be by a friend who had stayed there the month before, and also by two travellers I had met previous to my visit to Xi'an. We got a taxi from the train... More

I stayed here as part of a tour round China and really liked this little place. It is based around a series of courtyards with several stories. I stayed in a dorm on the roof of the far courtyard. It is basic but clean and the decorations in the courts and on the stairs give a nice atmosphere. It is... More

he staff was so so friendly and helpful, we booked a tour through them and had a great time. The restaurant was a great place to eat and hang out, we spent a few nights in the warmth, drinking and eating on their soft couches, reading and chatting. The only downside to our stay at this hostel was the room,... More

It's a very nice, friendly and clean hostel, with a helpful staff and with beautiful courtyards very close to the City Wall. This is the perfect place if you want to spend your nights with other travellers talking, listening/playing music, drinking, partying etc. But if you're looking for a quiet hostel, where you can go to sleep ~10-11pm, then avoid...

The hostel is clean, cheap and very large. It's set in a traditional Chinese city house and has two inner courtyards. At the front of the hostel is the reception area with space to sit down and use wifi and at the back is a small cafe that serves the best Pizza in Xi'an. The staff are all very friendly,... More
