We stayed in a dorm room and it was lovely, pretty much the best one that we have stayed in so far in China. One bad point about this spot is that it's so big it doesn't feel like a hostel. There's also no kind of common room for people to meet as the Jamaica Blue cafe in the reception is more of a place that you feel as though you need to pay to be able to sit there. It says you can't bring your own drinks in which would be fine if the prices for food and drink weren't so extortionate here. I also would not recommend taking the tours from the hostel such as the Terracotta Warrior one, we went in it and were rather disappointed as we later found we could make our own way there for a lot cheaper and relatively easy as we met a few people that did it. One of the things about the tour is that they say you get a "free beer or tea", we assumed this was while we were out at the tour but in fact it was back at the hostel and even though we had paid for 2 people when we got our beer they actually shared one bottle between both of us! Pretty money-grabbing if you ask me especially when it was the cheapest beer which you could buy yourself over the road for the equivalent of 30p!!! If I were to come to Xi'an again I wouldn't stay here, I would however contemplate staying in the sister hostel Hantang Inn as that seemed to have a much better atmosphere!
