We enjoyed staying at Ancient City hostel in Xian. We booked a private room for two persons and the room fully lived up to our expectations. The only downside were the bathroom - when you shower water is everywhere on the floor. The commonroom is very nice and low keyed, which friendly staff and a pool table. On saturdays a... More

The hostel was clean and located well-enough. Breakfast and drinks at the bar were a little expensive, so I would suggest eating out more often. The rooms were nice and beds were comfortable. Staff were also helpful and had good English; the hostel vibe was really friendly and familial which was awesome - they even let us screen our own... More

Bed was very good, it was more an hotel than an hostel! Staff was so nice and helpful. Close to the muslim quarter, where we could eat different things in the street. Towels provided were a bit worn out, maybe it is time to replace them.

This hostel is conveniently located at the Bedajie B metro station and therefore it is easy to go almost everywhere. It is a 15 to 20 minute walk to the Bell tower, Muslim quarter and trendy shopping areas. There are many non-touristy restaurants just around the corner in addition to the one in the hostel. Our privat with 2 twin... More

It was really fun and convenient for us to stay there. Located near Exit B Beidajie. Easy to go everywhere. So strategic! Warriors statues in front of hotels were amazing! Rooms so fancy. Sitting room was cozy. I would stay there again whenever I have chances to revisit XiAn. Excellent

Stayed for 2 nights. Requested for a double room but was given a twin room instead. It feels more like a no-frills hotel than a youth hostel. Room was spacious and clean with towels provided. Hostel was quite accessible, just next to metro. There are many eateries nearby. The neighbourhood is safe. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Extremely value... More
