We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and I can recommend it. We had the room in top floor with spacious 'living room' and good bathroom. It was not next to the main street and bar, so it was very quiet as well. It's clean and cozy and well managed. I would have rated the maximum if they had better quality pillows.

We stayed here for a few nights while we explored Xian. We had a double room upstairs just off the courtyard. The room was very clean and more homely then other rooms we'd had during our stay of china. Unfortunately the only problem with the hostel is that there is a bar attached to it which plays loud music until the early hours of the morning. If your out all night this wont bother you but if like us your trying to catch up on sleep after trekking the Great Wall it might be quite annoying. Other than the noise the hostel had a lot going for it: a great location inside the city walls, reasonably priced, onsite laundry facilities and helpful staff.

Room Tip: Ask for one away from the bar.

Janno's is situated just inside the city wall take the first right and it is through an alley to the left.
The staff especially Michael made our stay a great one. Nothing was too much trouble for him to sort out for us and always with a beaming smile!
Our room which I will refer to as the penthouse was at the very top of the house. Great aircon, bathroom with plenty of hot water, seating area with coffee table, wardrobe, kettle cups & green tea, up a deep step to the bedroom area with twin beds, table lamps etc.
Room was clean and we were very comfortable there.
Our room was only available for two nights unfortunately but another hotel was arranged for us within walking distance.
Michael helped us unfailingly with taxi,s etc even after we had left the city he kept in touch to see if we were ok.
We took the private driver to see the Panda's which we enjoyed immensely .
I cannot praise Michael enough, thank you for making our stay, although short a very good one.

Room Tip: Take the top penthouse room!!!!!

I didn't stay here, unfortunately as I am told it is pretty good, but the Belgian bar attatched to this hostel is great. The food is reasonably priced and tasty (Western Style) and you can sit outside, under the city walls and watch the world go by. Located just 5 mins walk from the South Gate of the city walls, a great place to catch your breath after a hard days sightseeing.

I have been here myself when I was here the first time. I stayed in one of the rooms with the king bed. It's good to feel the charm of China in your hotel room, not just all white.

I always recommend this place to my friends coming to visit. Not only for the environment it offers, but also for the location. 20 meters from the great Belgium Bar, 20 meters in the other direction and you get street barbecue dinner.

The only thing I regret is that there aren't any breakfast.

Room Tip: Charming from top to bottom...
