First of all the location is excellent! Close to everything, metro, bar street, bell tower, city wall, you name it. The front desk is good enough, nothing to complain. The facility itself is lovely. try their patio, you will be surprised.

I stayed here in 2009 during my backpacking days and last month when I was in Xi'an for a work trip, without hesitation I convinced my colleagues to stay here for one night, in a private room for 4. The reason I came back to this hostel is because this hostel had preserved within a traditional Chinese courtyard house and... More

Super helpful, cheap beer/food and comfortable nights in November. Great place within walking distance to Muslim Quarter (recommend it!) and easy bus access to Teracotta Warriors - Rt 103 - get it from just outside the hospital on other side of busy intersectio. Take 103 to Xian bus station/train and get blue bus to Terracota warriors -very cheap and easy.... More

This was a good place to stay. Dorm beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The shared bathroom and showers were alright.There was an effective heater in the room. Staff were pretty helpful, though they did tell me an outdated bus route to the hostel (the Melody Hotel route is no longer running) when I informed them of this... More

Hostel was average, common rooms were nice but very cold and allowed smoking which didn't make sitting in there very enjoyable. We took there 1 day tour to the Terra Cotta Warriors which was great- really enjoyed it and the guide was very knowledgable. Only one girl that works the front desk spoke English. The heat was turned off in... More

Well, I didn’t have a very pleasant experience at the place. Decoration of the common room was very beautiful and nice but my room was very dark with no window to outside, only a light wood window facing the indoor of the hotel (so its means all the noise of a hallway which goes with it : people talking, phone...

There were a few tiny bumps here and there but considering how cheap my stay here was, I am more than impressed. I was initially put in an 8 bed dorm having booked a 6 but it was easily sorted the next day. The staff may seem a bit unfriendly, but I soon learned that although their English is just... More

This hostel was a terrible experience in Xi'an. The bedroom was very very dirty (bed sheets, towel and walls) and very small. The bathroom was precarious!!! There wasn't a shower box and the shower water was running in front of toilet. Smoking was permitted in the Hostel!!!

Chinese oriental style youth hostel that is in a very good location right smack near the south gate of the city wall where you can go up and cycle.
