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.

First of all, I can say that the hostel itself is absolutely awesome. The beds were clean and the facilities were more than adequate for my stay here. My only gripe is the tour to see the terracotta warriors. The half day tour went from 9-5 which made it a full day, the tour guide repeated only what could be... More

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights as a solo traveller. The location was great and a cheap taxi from the station. I always found the reception staff very helpful and they helped me book a taxi to the airport when I left. The dorm room was comfortable although I would have preferred to have s curtain on the...

Great place to close enough to most things and right next to a bus stop/taxi waiting area if want you want is further away. The staff were really helpful and the place has a great vibe for relaxing a their cafe or for partying at Qin park bar just below, and there are a bunch of bars within walking distance... More

The bed in the dorm was nicely made and clean. The house keeper ladies changed my bed sheet even though I didn't ask for it. Lobby was warm and cozy in the winter. Front desk staffs are super friendly, love them!

On my return to Xian I popped into Shuyuan Hostel their Park Qin bar again recently. Busy bar and seems popular with big multi-national crowd of Africans, Kazaks, Pakistanis, Indians as well as many Chinese customers. Reasonable beer prices and interesting spirits mixes at very low prices indeed! Staff are a bit hit and miss, some nice some cranky... Massive... More

Charming hostel, in an ancient house with 3 beautiful courtyards where people can have a break and drink. Very well located inside the city walls, just a few meters away from the south gate. We had a double bedroom with private bathroom on the second floor of the third courtyard. It was a bit smelly, and not exceptionally clean, but... More

I stayed at this Hostel twice and both times have been awesome. Centrally located, nice rooms and fair price. The bar downstairs is incredibly lively during weekends. The food at the hostel restaurant is good and the pizza is great. Good draught beer at fair prices! A must see 10 minutes walk from the Bell tower and 5 minutes from... More
