It is a really nice hostel, like a hotel but with a more pleasant and easy going atmosphere.
Staff are helpful and speak English, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the beds are better than any I have slept on in China.
Don't miss staying there if you go to X'Ian. It is in the centre but very quiet.

I have stayed at 7 Sages recently when travelling in China. I was very pleased. Hostel is very big, looking good, its quiet, room was big, although we had little issue in bathroom where sealant around the shower has gone so water was leaking out into shower room. Except that all great. Nice food, friendly staff. I was bit ill so one of the girls at reception even helped me to write down in chinese what i need from pharmacy :) Thank you
Overall great place to stay, great value for money

After spending the night on the train from Beijing, we arrived in Xi'an early in the morning and walked from the train station to the hostel.
We did not make any bookings and was very lucky that they have a private room for us and allowed us to check in immediately at 9am.
The room was roomy and clean, and the bathroom is separated from the rest of the room by a large glass wall.
The bed is not a bed per se, but a mattress on the raised floor, which we have no problems with.
The bathroom though was a bit moldy and could be cleaner. It also emitted a funky smell (it smells like sewerage) if we did not close the bathroom door and the toilet seat.
We loved the courtyard and the gardens of the hostel, it is very Chinese with moon door arches.
The hostel has a resident dog Niu Niu, who is always up for a good rub.
We did not eat in the restaurant but had a good time playing pool there.
Travellers can also do their laundry there (10 Yuen per wash using the washing machine) and hang the clothes outside to dry or use the dryers for another 10 Yuen.
The staff was friendly and gave us good advice on shopping, which bus to take to see the Terracotta Warriors and the train options available to our next destination which was the Yellow Mountains.

For some inexplicable reason this hostel was not mentioned in the Lonely Planet... so we almost ended up at a real dump a bit further down the street. Very glad we changed our minds and glad that our taxi driver understood what we were looking for. In our somewhat broken language I think we mentioned the words "open", "garden" and possibly "nice place to sit" and he dropped us at the 7 Sages.

This hostel occupies an old army barracks that itself is a historical site having been in use for hundreds of years. It all intents and purposes it could well have been purpose-built as a backpackers hostel. It has pretty much everything that a city hostel could need. We ended up staying for over a week and used both dormitories and private rooms. The private rooms are really nice, with very modern ablutions, that look to have been recently refurbished.

The have a very good wireless network with multiple logins. The restaurant is very cosy, with a great menu. It was a little pricey however, but nearby there are numerous choices of street restaurants to choose from.

The hostel attracts a nice mix of domestic and foreign travellers. In summer months it appears to be really busy, so I'd recommend you book in advance.

We bought flight tickets via reception, very efficiently, and they helped us with a myriad of requests for information.

And the reason, we were attracted to it immediately - it has nice open space between the rooms, little courtyards, with lots of plants and flowers... and of course the main gathering point near reception, which is a great place to meet fellow travellers.

It was easy to get to many surrounding attractions from here - Xi'an City Walls, the Muslim Quarter and the bus stations to get to Huashan Mountain / Terracotta Soldiers.

We used bicycles from the hostel to ride around the inner city - probably the most fun we've had in a long-time. The traffic may be a bit intimidating, but it is actually quite slow and therefore reasonably safe. We managed fine with kids of 10, 12 and 13 years riding their own bikes.

Room Tip: We found private rooms worth the extra spend because the ablutions were really nice.

This hostel was nice. Xian was our last stop so we had stayed in other hostels and knew what to expect. We stayed here for three nights and had individual rooms. Probably the nicest rooms we had stayed in. Looked modern and the beds were comfy. Bathrooms were good and really clean. There was a TV in the room which had english channels (good for when the jet lag is playing up!) Loved the courtyards and the layout of the hostel. The restaurant area was lovely and we often ended up just chilling here having a few beers in the evening. Wifi only worked in this area. We found the location of the hostel to be slightly further out than we thought. It was a 25 min walk to the Muslim quarter but I think its close to the bus station so you probably don't need to trek like we did :) We didn't try any of the tours as we had booked our own driver.

The only thing that let this place down were the staff who were working when we were there. Really moody and not forth coming with information. Kind of essential when your customers are travellers! Girl on the front desk tried to ignore me completely when I needed help and then just grunted when she couldn't ignore me anymore. The waitresses were so rude and moody, rolling their eyes when you ask questions that we decided to leave and have dinner elsewhere. Two of our group could speak Mandarin so it wasn't even like there was a language barrier. Everything seemed to be a hassle for them. Shame really as the hostel itself is really nice.
