We (two friends) stayed at this hostel for three nights. We had a nice private twin bedroom with our own bathroom. Everything was clean and they even provided towels. However, the smell in the bathroom was not very pleasent. I guess it's the pipes or the drain which aren't really well maintained. Otherwise the hostel is perfect for (single and... More

I went there twice in one summer, and the experiences differ dramatically. What really marks the differences are staffs--they change at a quite frequent basis. The first time I was there it was almost perfect: guests and staffs hang out/ sing/ drink every night; at the end many of the staffs decide to leave and travel (well they're volunteers i... More

First of all, let me say that I'm no stranger to youth hostels. I've stayed in hostels throughout Asia, so I know what is typical for furnishings, service, etc. The Shuyuan's two main advantages are its location, which is convenient to the subway and to the bus stop, and it's bar. The bar alone -- which has a lively atmosphere... More

Close to the south gate of Xi'an wall, it is a comfortable and enjoyable hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a lot of well done planned programs to see the Terracotta Warriors or Jindi Tomb. From there you can easily work across the city to see the Drum Tower, the Great Mosque and the Muslim Quarter.... More

Staff are friendly and all and all it's a nice hostel but as we went there during winter, it was quite inconvenient especially using the common bathrooms. It was very cold to take shower as the bathroom was in open area. The place of the hostel was a bit hard to find also. Apart from that, the price is cheap... More

We stayed here one night on our way to Beijing. This really is one awesome hostel. Clean rooms with great showers, a bar with a band on the same premises, great food! Can be a bit noisy, but it is also a great place to meet folks and share travel plans. Would definitely go back!

This is a great hostel with a very cool, laid back vibe and great location - close to everything. The check in was a little bit annoying as the receptionist didn't have our booking and was very confused and nearly didn't let us in (even though we had the printed confirmation). Our room was a little noisy as there are... More

This hostel is in a great location and has a really fab vibe. The staff at reception were the friendliest we have experienced in the whole of our stay in China. We stayed in a double private room and it was a good size. Not the most modern but everything you needed. Bathrooms looked like they had been updated and... More

We stayed as a family of 4 in 2012. The rooms we had were on the ground floor. They were basic but clean. The hostel had a great atmosphere and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our two teenagers particularly enjoyed the cafe with excellent pizzas and milk shakes. The location is excellent for getting around and I would... More
