We stayed here for 2 nights in August. We booked a private quad sharing room for our family with 2 kids aged 9 & 11. We got a room which had 4 double decker beds and an attached bathroom. The room was very large & comfortable but the floor & toilet was not quite clean. The room also wasnt cleaned the next day.
The service was poor. There was only one front desk staff named Rachel who was really helpful. The others couldnt really be bothered.
Our first night, there was no power due to a storm. So we suffered in a stuffy room. The walls are really thin so you can hear everything that is going on along the corridor & downstairs. (Our room was on the first level).
The cafe/restaurant/bar was rather costly and you are not able to cook your own meals or bring food back to eat there. But, at night the street comes alive with little vendors selling all kinds of food. So getting food was easy. There's also a great noodle place closely that served excellent noodles. The Chinese Restaurant round the corner was fairly good too.
They try to sell their tours but we didnt want to go to the terracotta warriors with 20 other people so we chose to hire a private driver. We hired an English speaking guide at the museum itself. Kids enter free so in all, we spent less going on our own than if all 4 of us had gone on the tour.
The only good thing about this place is its location. The subway & bus-stop is close by and the drum tower & bell tower are walking distance.
We have stayed in other backpacker hostels in Japan & Australia. This place was disappointing given its many raving reviews.
