Paid for extra for the double with garden view and received a twin on the first floor with a courtyard view (double is more expensive). Very dirty with ripped bedding and baby cockroaches. The bathroom door was rotten due to the paint coming off and soaking the water up so had a terrible musty smell. The location was fantastic and... More

We stayed there only for a night, but the hostel seemed nice and clean and the staff was very kind and helpful. You can get a free coffee or beer when you check-in. We left our bags there for a day while visiting the Terracotta Warriors and didn't have to pay. The coffee bar and restaurant are good and you... More

Let's put this property into perspective. It's by no means a nice place or comfortable place but for the price you definitely get more than you pay for. Beds are clean, facilities need cleaning and updating. Bar downstairs is noisy and thumpy. The restaurant does western good pretty well but again it's nothing spectacular but does the job for a...

Stayed at this hostel for a week and it was a wonderful experience. The hostel itself is located close to the city walls and close to everything of interest. The staff all speak English (as well as several other languages) and are really helpful and friendly - they go out of their way to make sure everyone is OK. The... More

After staying at some hit and miss hostels during my trip, this one was definitely a hit. Lovely atmosphere, relaxing courtyard and excellent English speaking staff. Evening activities available aswell for those wishing to socialise. Excellent food and drink plus free beer or coffee ticket on arrival. Highly recommended.

Friendly service with a bunch of energetic front desk crew. Feel very much at home with loads of nice places to visit in walking distance. Located right at the south gate at Xi'an city where you can easily catch a bus or train to connect you everywhere. The only setback will be the night club at lower ground floor. avoid... More

After reading many highly positive reviews on tripadvisor I thought this hostel would be one of the best we would stay at in China... not the case. We stayed in a private double room (the booking said "King Bed" - but was a double) for two nights. Pros: Very friendly staff, excellent English Map provided (the first time we have... More

One of the most strangest experience for me in China. Myself and 4 friends got booked into a room (I think it was room 306) and immediately we didn't like the room, it didn't feel right and the cleaners didn't like going into clean it which we thought was odd. We decided to change rooms and had a great time... More

I was here with my tour group and I've never stayed at such a gorgeously decorated hostel. The 3 gardens are the perfect spot to sit and read a book of you wish or have a chat. The restaurant offered so many options for food and had a great atmosphere. I really enjoyed my stay here and can tell why... More
