This hostel is in a good location, close to the Bell Tower, City Wall South entrance & Muslim Quarter. It is a bit run down with stained walls & chipped floor boards but it was clean with all the amenities (towels, toiletries, kettle, aircon) and was a good size with a huge bed. We found several communal areas but had... More

This was, without a doubt, the most appalling hostel I have ever had the misfortune of encountering. The staff were arrogant, rude and disrespectful; they laughed in our faces when we asked for help and were very begrudging upon check-in. They falsely advertised facilities online, which were incredibly misleading to us as customers. When we challenged this, whilst initially coming... More

We've stayed on all floors and most rooms. Pros: -great location (right in front of Bell Tower & subway station; 5 mins walk to Muslim... More

The Bell Tower Hostel is conveniently located in front of the Xi'an Bell Tower. The place is clean, it has a bar with a pool table, and is very busy. Subway station is nearby. Restaurants and shops surround the area. Ask for room 524 for a great view of the tower.

Stayed here back in Nov 2013, was cosy and warm staff helped me with pick up, luggage, and map/directions too! Room and board wise, don't expect this to be very luxurious like a 5 star hotel but a hostel normally isn't a hotel) Should have stayed in a single bedded room instead of a dorm because it was dirty( Despite...

Great location next to Bell Tower and a short walk to the Drum Tower and the Muslim Quarter. KFC, McDonald's, and Starbucks are all located nearby as well if that's your thing. Facilities are dated and not aging well. Beds are hard. The towels provided were worn thin (one had holes) and made me question the quality of the sheets,... More
